I dont know. My sister in law is a celiac. I thought all you had to do was avoid gluten and you would be fine.

Entocort is a corticosteroid, with all the potential side effects. It's supposed to be less systemically absorbed and therefore have fewer side effects, but that isn't always true. For short-term it's probably safe enough, but for more than three months, it has the potential to cause some gruesome problems.

gunder- buy the scd diet book- i just got it and it talks about celiacs disease alot- I would strongly suggest this, as if you don't you may end up with CD- or UC and by god you don't want that.
