celiac disease or intolerence? all or nothing?
(Anchorage, Alaska USA)
l had an endoscopy that showed scalloping in the small intestine & the doctor said the pathology results from my biopsy showed celiac disease. He asked me to come back and give more blood, which i did and it is at the lab now. Why would I give blood again if it already showed celiac? - Is there a difference between intolerance and disease? is it a gradual scale or is celiac disease/gluten intolerance an all or nothing thing?
if a small mistake is made in a gluten free diet i.e. a couple of drops of soy sauce compared to a big helping of pasta, is the damage less severe or is it a all or nothing thing re: continued damage?
