Yes, it is not unusual. On the bright side, a gluten-free diet is known to greatly help Chrohn's disease as well, not just celiac disease.

Nancy, your link leads to something completely other than that study!

Hello

I understand you are feeling wierd but please try to keep your head up.....A friend of mine has that crohne disease (since she was 10 years old and now she is 24). Ok she is not very happy, sometimes she had big trouble, but she is doing ok most of the time. Not just ok....she is a beautiful girl, she is studying to become a doctor (....), having fun, doing sports and all the stuff a young healthy person is supposed to do. And she is always smiling....no problems at all . She is taking her medicine, eating what she has to eat, going to her doctor regularly...I am not trying to tell you that it is not a difficult disease. It is a very difficult one, but it is ok....Try to think positive untill you get those reslults, and if they are not the ones you are expecting we are here to support you. Try to think of all those people who have diseases that can't be treated.....I know it's difficult but just try that...I am going to have a biopsy (hope next week) to see if there is cancer in my intestine. I am not telling you that to make you feel bad or to piity me. I am feeling strong and even if that's the case I am going to fight it. Just keep in mind that crohnes is somthing you can live with. I hope everything is ok with you (and with me...!!!!!)

That's life....take care ok???
