Thank you for this article. It's time people realize the seriousness of this disease. I have had people say to me, "So all you have to do is give up bread?" This is a very serious disease, just the same as diabetes and so many others. Thank you, Deb
I agree--because the disease is food-related, most people assume that just avoiding wheat will take care of it. The malabsorbsion issue is not recigonized enough (in my opinion) for the physical and nerological damage that it causes. The gluten-free diet, in my case, has caused great improvement, but I have heard from Deb and others that my neuropathy may only stay the same and not get much better. That seems to be the case with me. My disease went many years before being dx. and treated. People need to know that this is serious, and if left untreated can have dire consequences.
