Marsh 3C

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


I need some encouragement. Did anyone here recover after Marsh 3C damage? Damage was visible already during endoscopy and prior to biopsy which confirmed celiac disease. ("Bulbus looks fine but segments D2 and D3 look scallopped" is what the gastro wrote, and I don't know if the other parts are fine or he didn't see them at all. Are D1,2,3,4 all visible at endoscopy?)

I have only been diagnosed 2 months ago, but I am a very anxious person and always expect the worst. 

Thank you.

Relax!  Well, try to anyway as celiac disease does cause anxiety.  It is systemic and can affect the brain!  But no worries, you can heal on a gluten free diet.  I must warn you, it takes time.  Time to master the diet, identify any other additional intolerances you may have and address other concurrent illnesses (like I had osteoporosis and some fractures to heal).  Time is about 1 to 2 years — I kid you not.  

Research is your best defense.  So, feel free to ask questions or search through the forum.
