I think that, especially in your case, remaining on a gluten-free diet is more than necessary. By eating gluten, wont you be doing more damage to your already damaged intestines? And, since you do not heal, you would be doing irrepairable damage.
So my question and toughts lately have been, if I am nonresponsive to the diet, i.e. my villi are not healing at all, then why remain on the diet?
Btw, what is the SCDiet?
