JenniferK--I have Crohn's and diabetes. I was given the same advice when I was diagnosed with Crohn's. AND I was LITERALLY handed insulin and a candy bar when diagnosed with diabetes. Oh, it was cleverly disguised as a "low glycemic protein bar" to keep my blood sugars level, but it was peanut butter and chocolate. Candy.
I had even asked my GI doctor to look for celiac signs when he did my colonoscopy, but he never once mentioned it afterward. I have the feeling he found Crohn's and then just quit looking for anything else.
