When I was first tested my doctor said she could definitely see signs of ( and possibly Chrons) but wasn't sure about Celiacs. she followed with a genetic blood test which confirmed it was Celiacs. I would recommend you ask for that if they haven't done it yet. When I asked her what she recommended for treating the first two, she said there was some drugs, but for most patients the change in diet (primarily what you described) is often the best treatment. It can take a little longer than if you are just dealing with one thing, but hopefully you will get results. I've been Gluten Free for 2 1/2 months now & have started to see improvement in all areas.
I was just diagnosed with Collagenous colitis but not celiac. I had an endoscopy and colonoscopy a week ago with 6 biopsies along duodendum and colon. I'll be treated with a steroid for the inflammation and advised to follow low fiber, low fat, dairy free, gluten free, no caffeine, no alcohol, cooked fruits and vegetables diet. Do you know of a on-line support group for this? Any recommended reference books? Coping mechanisms?

For gluten free eating info though the best place is right here on celiac com.

You might try the FODMAP diet, or some modified version of ti to see if it works for you.
The other thing that his GI doctor told him was that Pepto Bismol is great for CC. There is something in it that has a positive effect on the microflora or something. My dad has found it to be a big help.
