Refractory Sprue

12 May 2008 - 07:58 AM


I am seeking information regarding refractory sprue.

I was diagnosed with celiac in January of 2007, and my follow-up biopsy this January was normal due to strict adherance to the gluten free diet.

Since the end of April I have severe diarrhea, and yet have made no changes whatsoever to my diet. I am wondering if it is possible to have a normal biopsy in January, and yet possibly have this refractory sprue?

I called the specialist who follows me for celiac and explained how severe my symptoms have been. The receptionist certainly did not seem concerned and made me an appointment for July.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. I am really worried and am unsure of what to do, if anything.

Thanks kindly,
