  • Hi! If you remove the gluten from your diet, your biopsy might be negative.

  • Hi podundee I'm eating normal foe now,only went GF free for 3 weeks to do an elimination challenge.that ended 8 weeks ago so hoping 10-11 weeks back on normal food should be ok.

  • Christmas Eve morning, at least you can still make it to the carol service.
