It has been reported that some patients have been misdiagnosed with Diverticulitis, when in fact the correct diagnosis in their specific case was Coeliac Disease.
Celiac disease is a manageable chronic condition that usually responds to treatment and lifestyle changes. The main treatment option ids to avoid any gluten in the diet. Diagnosis is by a blood test that measures antibody levels in the body in response to gluten. A patient can not have the test if he/she is on a gluten free diet. If the results show antibody presence in the blood, an endoscopy is required to assess the damage to the intestines.
