Colitis or Microscopic Colitis

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

The good news is that my celiac is now in remission judging by my latest endoscopy/biopsy. 

The bad news is a colonoscopy shows colitis. Now, I'm assuming it's no ulcerative as my GI doc said my colon looks great. So, I'm assuming it's microscopic. I don't really know much about it, though.

Had anyone gone through a celiac diagnosis only to be hit with colitis? Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks

Oh, ok. I don't know my latest antibody numbers. I'll have to get them done again. 

I was just told that my villi have grown back. Does that not mean remission?

Thanks

Hi Charles,

Yes, the regrowth of the villi should mean your celiac disease is in remission.  At least until you consume a tiny bit of gluten that is.

I think they sometimes treat colitits with budosenide?  I know some forum members were taking that drug.  So might search on that and find some info.
