Lymphocitic Colitis And Celiac Disease

Recommended Posts

It's kind of a long story, but I was wondering if anyone knew about Lymphocitic Colitis and Celiac? My GI dr. suggested I have LC, but she doesn't think I have Celiac. I don't really care if I have Celiac or a gluten intolerance, doesn't really matter to me. But, I was wondering if Dr's diagnose LC instead of Celiac? Is is misdiagnosed? Thanks...I appreciate any advice! :)

It is possible to have both (there is one member I can think of that has both)

Alot of people with LC are gluten-free ...not because they are a coeliac...but because they find they can't tolerate gluten

Here is a useful site you may want to look at

Good Luck :)

Nikki,

Thank you for the link. I read somewhere that when lymphocytes are off balance, causing lymphocitic colitis, that it can be "fixed" with a gluten-free diet. I thought that was interesting. I wonder how much my GI Dr. knows about this kind of stuff??
