Microscopic colitis and link to gluten sensitivity and milk sensitivity but not celiac disease?

Unclear question. I do not understand your question. But microscopic colitis is a specific condition that is most commonly related to medications, though some conditions predispose you to developing it (Celiac may be one). Milk sensitivity? - if you mean lactose intolerance then this is common and separate from Celiac. Everyone that drinks enough milk will have symptoms.
Clarification for U. Microscopic colitis (lymphocytic colitis & collagenous colitis) is a colon biopsy diagnosis made typically in patients with atypical diarrhea, & is often linked to excessive use of nsaid's. There are no specific tests for gluten sensitivity, only for celiac disease. There are no specific tests for milk sensitivity, only lactase deficiency, milk allergy, & milk protein intolerance. Hope this helps.

What is the difference between celiac disease and gluten sensitivity? Or, are they the same?

Effect on the body. You can be intolerant or react to gluten containing products with cramping, diarrhea, hives , etc. If this occurs and your blood test and or intestinal biopsy are positive for tissue damage markers, anti-intestinal antibodies you have celiac. A negative set of blood tests/biopsy suggest just intolerance. Both issues are complex and the rational approach to management is the same, avoid gluten. Read more...

How does it take for a doctor to test for celiac disease and gluten sensitivity?

Depends on the test. And the lab doing the testing. There are a number of lab tests for diagnosing celiac disease. Many labs do not perform the tests in-house but send the specimens to a reference lab. Based on the results of initial testing, additional tests may be needed. Therefore it is not feasible to give an exact timeline, but all of the tests can be completed in a matter of days. Read more...

Can I tell me how I can find out if I have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity?

Get tested. Celiac disease would trigger tissue transaminases that can be found on blood tests. If you have your primary doc order a celiac panel, it can see if there is evidence of these markers. If worrisome, a workup and biopsy though a gastroenterologist can confirm it. You must be consuming gluten for the testing to be accurate. The equivalent to a slice of bread daily for 3 wks is enough. Read more...

Is celiac disease and gluten sensitivity the same thing? My friend has been following a gluten-free diet because she says she is sensitive to gluten. Does that mean she has celiac disease?

Yes, . Yes, celiac disease is also called gluten sensitivity (or more accurately gluten sensitive enteropathy). It has also been called non-tropical sprue or celiac sprue. These terms all mean the same thing, that a person has a condition in which the immune system responds abnormally to a protein called gluten, which can cause damage to the lining of the small intestine (in medical terms called an enteropathy). The diagnosis is based on blood tests (including measurement of antibodies called tissue transglutaminase, anti-endomysial antibodies and anti-gliadin antibodies). The most accurate of these is the tissue transglutaminase antibodies. A biopsy of the small intestine taken during an upper endoscopy is also often done to confirm the diagnosis. The treatment of celiac disease is avoidance of foods that contain gluten, or a gluten-free diet. Gluten is found in wheat, rye, barley, and many prepared foods. Read more...
No. They are not the same thing. Gluten sensitivity is much less severe than celiac. They are both sort of along the same spectrum, but celiac is more severe, and gluten sensitivity is much less severe. People with celiac genes can not have celiac but be gluten sensitive. Read more...
