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.

Just looking at its name, one might wonder if buckwheat is safe for people on a gluten-free diet. However, unlike its name, buckwheat does not naturally contain any wheat or gluten. As a result, buckwheat is generally safe for people with celiac disease on a gluten-free diet. Turns out that buc...

Oh my I just re read your post. Ok now I am going to definitely say yes-you need to find someone who will test you. If this Dr. will not you may want to look for one who will. I slowly reveal my issues on here and I still keep things close to the vest. My pregnancies/labor/deliveries we...

I try not to take a lot of ibuprofen as I know it's not great for my gut. But, when I need it, I take Costco's Kirkland ibuprofen. It is labelled gluten free and I have had no issues with it.
