Level and rate of intestinal damage
Wondering what everyone’s thoughts are. Seems like there are three main (informal) categories of Celiacs: those who had a dramatic, quick descent into an acute illness that ultimately led to diagnosis; those who lingered for weeks, months or years then ultimately were diagnosed; and those who were largely asymptomatic and quite surprised by the diagnosis. So my question: is the level and rate of intestinal damage the same across all these groups, or is that also determined by the individuals body? For example, if I were asymptomcatic and diagnosed after 3 years with the disease, would my intestinal damage be the same as the person who was sick to one degree or another for 3 years prior to their diagnosis?
