How Long Does It Take Villi To Heal?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if it is possible that after 7 months gluten-free that a scope would still pick up damage to the villi? Or is that far to long ?

Cheers,

From what I've managed to read, it seems it depends on the extent of the damage and the person.

I've read that in mild damage the villi can repair in as little as three days, but sometimes like with older people it could take a year.

I have heard from celiac experts who say it can take a good two years (or more) for villi to grow back in adults depending on the extent of the damage and the person. My dietitian advised me to give it at least that. :)

Its a tough one - I'm not sure wether to take a chance and just go for a biopsy and hope it shows up something. I have been gluten-free for 8 months.
