Collagenous Sprue is a distinctive lesion of the intestinal mucosa associated with progressive malabsorption. The intestinal

Thereafter, bands of eosinophilic hyaline material within the lamina propria become increasingly apparent. As the disease progresses, the mucosa becomes progressively thinner. Therapy, including the gluten-free diet, does not help. Some cases currently designated refractory or unclassified Sprue many prove to be Collagenous Sprue.

It does a disservice to people newly diagnosed with collagenous sprue to print articles that are so old. As a patient who FORMERLY had c. sprue, I can testify that, with proper care by those practitioners (Dr. Green - my doctor - of Columbia Univ. NYC) who are most familiar with the disease, collagenous sprue can be cured. It is no longer the "death knell" that it used to be.

Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten. Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc. Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon. Consider reading t...

When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no ...
