misdiagnosed for 25 years!

Welcome the forum!
There was a study posted not long ago by someone, hopefully they will show up and re-post the link. But anyway, it was about a study some med-heads did on celiacs who didn't recover on the gluten-free diet. They found that if those people went on a a whole foods diet and eliminated any trace of gluten, including so called gluten-free processed foods, that many of them recovered. They had to eliminate things like gluten-free cookies, breads and other processed foods to start the healing. That worked for some of them, but not all. Are all your meds gluten-free? You should check that yourself, and not rely on the medical people to know.
Some people with refactory celiac do better on an enteral, hypoallergenic diet. People with Crohn's also use them at times.
Quite a few people here have food reactions beyond just gluten. Nightshades, soy, dairy etc can cause many symptoms too. Have you found any additional food triggers for your condition?
I hope you feel better soon.
Some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months:
Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
Don't eat in restaurants
Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
Take gluten-free vitamins.
Take digestive enzymes.
Avoid sugars and starchy foods.
