Tropical sprue responds to antibiotics and is bacterial induced / it is not autoimmune.
Non-tropical sprue / celiac sprue / celiac disease is an autoimmune disease.
The names that doctors prefer to use change over the years but the disease is the same.
Same as Diabetes.......
Juvenile diabetes = Type 1 diabetes = Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus= IDDM
different names over the years but the same disease.
Tropical sprue and non- tropical sprue are different disease with similar symptoms....just like
Diabetes Mellitus and Diabetes Insipidus are different diseases but similar symptoms of Polyuria/polydipsia
medical lingo is confusing
