For All Of The Ones Waiting For Recovery :)

3 posts in this topic

How long it's going to take to get better has been up a lot lately, so I pricked my ears when I came across this just now : "I’ve increased the [follow-up] biopsy interval from one to two years because only 40% of people had complete recovery after 12 months gluten-free." This was in an article on the celiac.com site, by William Dickey, a gastroenterologist at Altnagelvin Hospital, Londonderry, Northern Ireland, with over 400 celiac patients attending his clinics. :)

Thanks for posting this. Too many on this forum have been lead to believe that the healing process is fairly immediate. It most definitely is not. Perhaps an authoritative statement like this will insert a little reality here. I was given this two year figure as a minimum. Claire

that is really depressing :(

I have gone to gluten-free restaurants and I have gotten glutend from them. I was only dx about a little over a year ago and the last three times that I have been to PF Changs I have been contaminated. I am very sensitive to gluten and I can tell with in 1/2 an hour if I have eaten the wrong thing. I am so careful and I really enjoy going out to eat, and that is why I go to gluten-free restaurtants, but I cant rely on anything.

Thank you for the information I really appericate it :)
