Duodenitis After 16 Years On The Diet

13 June 2013 - 08:49 AM

I have two family members that have been on the gluten-free diet for 15 & 16 years and they have followed the diet strictly (barring a few restaurant mishaps) and yet both of them still suffer intense intestinal pain and duodenal biopsies still show a lot of inflammation of the duodenum.

Could this be refractory celiac disease? I didn't think so because in many other ways they have responded well to the diet, their villi is much improved. But it seems the definition of RCD are changing. Are steroids and thiopurines useful in dealing with this intestinal inflammation?
I would appreciate any info or advice. Thnx

Don't Go To Boston Pizza

16 April 2013 - 11:58 AM

I tried Boston Pizza's GlutenWise pasta last night and it was awful. It was plain terrible corn pasta with a very tiny amount of awful tomato sauce and a ratty piece of dried chicken breast and the price was 20 bucks which was ridiculous. The pizza is not very good either The crust isn't bad but it is only 8 inches and they really cheap out on toppings and cheese, which they don't do for regular customers. I would not recommend Boston Pizza to any celiac.
