Dr. Thompson also shared Gluten-free Elimination Diet

I had a few members request Dr. Thompson’s slide on the Gluten-free Elimination Diet. He kindly sent that to me to share with members on the website. He was discussing Refactory Celiac Disease. If GI symptoms do not improve on your strict gluten-free diet,  or you have evidence of  elevated TTG antibiodies not improving, you might consider this elimination diet for a trial period.
