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.

@cyclinglady I heard that there were problems with Armour Thyroid when it came to gluten a few years ago. I thought it was no longer safe? @MegamaniacI had forgot to put that in my original post that I have a lot of issues with anxiety as well. I've never actually been officially diagnosed w...

He said he was going to set me up with a nutritionist. I will definitely check out the newb...
