inflammation of small intestine

I always thought celiac disease involved inflammation of the small intestine, but a GI doctor told me this was not true or it's not an inflammatory bowel condition. Was the doctor wrong?

Hi,

Here is what Mayo clinic has to say about IBD:

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/inflammatory-bowel-disease/basics/definition/con-20034908

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) involves chronic inflammation of all or part of your digestive tract. IBD primarily includes ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Both usually involve severe diarrhea, pain, fatigue and weight loss. IBD can be debilitating and sometimes leads to life-threatening complications.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

is this a new doctor, sella?  i remember you were going to switch.  sounds like you better keep looking...... :( 

 i feel your pain:  i've been gluten-free (dx'd FINALLY with celiac after 25 years of doctors telling me i had ibs/ibd/colitis but doing no tests at all to rule out anything else!!)  for 6 years, honestly finally starting to feel like i'm healing and my general practitioner is trying to give me DRUGS - no, thanks, i asked for something to try that wasn't that drastic.....  it's like i asked for a bb and he tried to give me a grenade.....  i pretty much called him stupid.  he doesn't like me anymore boo hoo....

What we know about Celiac is that it does involve inflammation of the small intestine leading to villi blunting. I mean, this is the Celiac prototype.

Crohn's can involve the whole GI tract while ulcerative colitis involves the colon (large intestine) and rectum if I am not mistaken.


Diagnosed with Celiac in 2010. Diagnosed with sleep apnea 2018.

Yep, that's right per my research.  If you think about it, inflammation is a sign of most diseases.
