coeliac disease not responding to a strict GF diet
Posted by fly62 on 5/7/2017, 20:36:22
I I have just had a repeat endoscopy ( 5 years after diagnosis) and the results show that the lymphacites in my bowel have not recovered as they should on a gluten free diet. I adhere to a strict gluten free diet and am very experienced with it as my son has been GF for 28 years. ( I had symptoms for years but never had a positive blood test and certainly never lost weight). I recovered initially and lost 5 stone in weight but things have recently got bad again. My GP thinks the hospital will be considering refractory coeliac disease. Has anyone anyexperience of this that they can share with me
Thanks in advance
