Enteropathy Mimics Celiac

Bovine Beta Casein Enteropathy
PCOS Lady:
Everyone this is important to know… The “key” is if you do not feel better after being treated for Celiac it may be Enteropathy… A misdiagnosed condition!

Yes, it definitely can, though most GI specialists are not likely to be aware of this. This is also one of the reasons why most celiacs never return to normal colonic mucosal histoligy, (IOW, they continue to show villus atrophy, on biopsies), despite rigidly following a GF diet, because they continue to ingest dairy products.
Cow dairy can cause an enteropathy similar to celiac disease. It is called Bovine Beta Casein Enteropathy. It acts like celiac disease, causing inflammation leading to villous blunting. The milk protein elicits the antibody reaction just like gluten does in celiac disease.
The following is a quote from a long article about this issue from the website of John B. Symes, D.V.M. (aka Dogtor J ). Dr. Symes is a veterinarian, but he has done more research about food-related sensitivities, and he is far more knowledgeable about them, then more than 99% of the human GI specialists in the world.
Here is the important thing. The other “foods’ that coat (and subsequently damage) the intestinal villi…and the only ones that do this along with casein…are gluten, soy, and corn. These are the big four or the “four horsemen of the apocalypse” as I now like to call them. And it is man and animals against casein, gluten, soy, and corn as the title implies. The strongest evidence of their potential harm is found in the fact that all of these food elements are used to make adhesives…powerful adhesives. Casein, gluten and soy are the strongest, stickiest, and most powerfully antigenic glycoproteins while corn is a slightly less powerful but nonetheless very significant player (especially the corn that we have recently created). They put cars together with the super-glues manufactured from soy protein. They make waterproof industrial adhesives from casein and gluten that are used for numerous purposes ranging from the glue on stamps and envelopes to putting metal together. But, the “best” they can do with corn glues is to put cardboard boxes together. So, we see why the FDA and veterinary lists of food allergens are what they are: in order, the (primary) food allergens are cow’s milk, wheat, soy, and corn.

A little known “fact”: The hardest material known to modern science can be found in the skulls of gastroenterologists who believe that diet has nothing to do with digestive system diseases, such as microscopic colitis. Laughing
