Questions About Celiac Disease
Posted 03 August 2004 - 10:01 AM
1. Does the amount of gluten ingested affect the amount of villi damage done? In other words, is one little particle of gluten like a duodenal atomic bomb - flattening villi in all directions - or is it dependant on how much gluten you have eaten in determing the amount of damage done?
2. They told me if I went gluten-free that my villi damage was not permanent and they would begin growing back normally. What is the time period for this rejuvenation?
3. Is Dapsone bad for you?
4. Is "Ezekial" brand bread really Gluten Free? Dr. Phil's wife said it was.
5. What about 1-a-day vitamins for men and Tums?
Thanks in adavance for any information you can give me.
And when will Bard'sTale Beer be available? It's supposed to be the only Gluten-free beer available.

Dapsone can have severe side effects in some people, but thsoe side effects are rare and can be montiored with regular visits to the doctor. I took it for more than 20 years but wasn't aware of the connection with celiac.
Ezekiel bread is not gluten-free. Some claim sprouted wheat is OK but I wouldn't take the chance. Spelt is also off-limits. We all keep our fingers crossed for Bard's beer. They're trying to find ways and places to distribute it now.
