Partial villous atrophy is usually one of the signs of coeliac disease which is basically, an allergy to gluten, a substance that is present everywhere around us because it's in basic food we eat - oats, bread, baked foods... from wheat to most cereals. Other condition, also linked with both coeliac disease and partial villous atrophy is lactose intolerance - inability of your intestines to digest mil and milk products. That's how your gut gets damaged - because you simply can't avoid eating these foods - so it's harder for your body to take in all the important nutrients it needs. Have the doctors pointed you to do any other test or given you other recommendations?
