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.

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?

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.

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