Medications To Calm Inflammation Of Intestines Due To Celiac Disease
I have been diagnosed with a hiatus hernia and inflammation of the small intestines, now had bloods done for celiac disease why is this ?

Classically people have loose stool, bloating, and abdominal discomfort but more often are just found when screened for other reasons (like symptoms of a nutritional deficiency like ...Read more
Celiac disease: Inflammation is a non-specific descriptive term. Celiac disease (if not controlled via strict gluten free diet) will increase inflammatory cells along the intestinal lining. If you have biopsy-confirmed celiac disease, stay gluten-free in your diet.

The intestinal lining loses its microscopic "villi", which are tiny protrusions that maximize the absorptive surface area needed to absorb nutrients.

I have celiac disease and am about 20 pounds underweight. I am gluten and dairy free but remain severly thin. Will my intestines heal at my age of 54?
See below: For celiac disease, the intestines completely heal in the absence of gluten (95% of the time). In 5%, however, enteropathy is refractory to gluten avoidance and may be caused by underlying immune dysregulation (constitutive IL-15 production by epithelial cells for example). Other potential causes for difficulty in gaining weight should be considered too. To begin, an EGD needs to be repeated soon ...Read more
Is there any relation between ibd and celiac disease? How is celiac diagnosed? ( since i think colonoscopy is for large intestine only? )
Similar symptoms: Ibd and celiac disease have been reported together in some patients.

I've had Celiac disease for almost 12 years. I was told I can get intestinal cancer for not following the diet. Is that true?
The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more
