  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Hi all. Yes, I do think my gut will "complain" when it gets a level of gluten which will cause damage. It will be very easy for me to know, since my bowels have been so different...
  3. Well it's been over 2 weeks now gluten free. My partner brought in our Tuesday morning tradition of Einstein bagels with cream cheese for the whole staff. I had to sit there...
  4. The newer surgery is done through a laparoscope, so it is minimally invasive, and highly effective. It recreates the lower esophageal sphincter with a strip of stomach muscle....
  5. raven: I have been thinking the same thing. Not to screen all patients, just those that may be related to celiac. The largest group of patients would be lower esophageal adenocarcinoma...
  6. Hi folks, I have a thought for all those with severe reflux- consider getting an evaluation for surgical correction of the reflux. The current procedure is called a Laparascopic...
  7. Hi Franceen, Please let us know about the results from the pathology of your skin biopsy. I've read that up to 30% of patients with DH have negative antibody tests, so you may...
  8. OK, here is the very unscientific symptom survey (VUSS) I tallyed up the symptoms of a total of 20 of us (n=20), any symptom by only one person and no others was dropped, and...

  11. I know what you mean about the cost, but an office consultation shouldn't cost more than $175-200. Perhaps he could just review your history and make recommendations that could...
  12. I don't understand why you say you don't beleive in refractory celiac. Collagenous colitis would have nothing to do with persistently flattened villi in the small bowel, even though...
  13. Karen: I understand that you have refractory celiac based on persistently flatenned villi, but do you have persistent malapsorption/diarrhea and if so how severe? What type...
  14. The variability of celiac is clear, I suppose it is just like other diseases where there are different levels of intensity. If you think about seasonal allergies for example, some...
  15. Hi Vydor, I think the issue of cross reactivity is getting confused because the same term is being applied loosely to very different issues. The thread you linked was talking...
