I found this thread by doing a search for "Minimal Change Disease" and "gluten free". I hope I'm posting correctly, as this is totally different from the only other message board I'm on, which happens to be the gluten free forum mentioned earlier.
Anyway, I was diagnosed with "colitis" over 20 years ago and then Minimal Change Disease a little over 4 years ago. I've been in remission, without any medications, for 3-1/2 years now. It's because of being on a strict gluten free diet. A little boy on my son's soccer team has MCD and when I told his mom about the diet she put him on it immediately and he stopped spilling protein after only 5 days and is already tapering off the prednisone after only 2 weeks.
I don't have Celiac Disease, but a gluten free diet can be therapeutic for many different conditions. Please consider it, whether you have Celiac, a gluten allergy or gluten intolerance. It can't hurt you and could possibly help you a great deal.
