Tell us a bit more. How were you diagnosed the first time, what is your diet like, how were you diagnosed refactory? Are you 100% sure you haven't been getting glutened somehow, like say from an old cast iron pan, a wooden spoon, the old toaster, medications, etc? Do you have a shared household with gluten eaters? Do you eat in restaurants?

 

Welcome to the forum. Now let us know a bit more about you and maybe we can help. :)


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

What foods are you eating? Specifically, which processed foods?

 

The next step for you would be to try to Fasano diet, which is specifically designed for people exactly in your situation. It focuses on eliminating trace gluten contamination in the diet by eliminating processed "gluten-free" foods. His book is excellent.

Hi sophi054, the medical study you are enrolled in, is it for monoclonal antibody therapy? I was also diagnosed with RCD type 2 back in May, and then reconfirmed in August after many tests at Mayo Clinic. I had clonal t-cells with villous atrophy with increased intraepithelial lymphocytes despite years of being gluten free. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2003. After the first diagnosis of RCD type 2, I was put on a daily dosage of budesonide and the 11 years of diarrhea finally ended. I am enrolled as a study participant with Dr. Murray at Mayo using the monoclonal antibody therapy - and now have been reclassified as type one. After the last treatment in October, I am happy to say that I am back to the weight I was before all I had lost January - May of last year. My color has returned and my energy is slowly coming back. My biopsy from November’s endoscopy was night and day difference from the one I had in August. I hope you have success with your study.
