Sashya added a topic in Gluten-Free Diet & Weight IssuesWeight And Other Serious IssuesHi,
I am suffering from severe complications of celiac disease and where i live, doctors do not understand the disease. I live in Jamaica and no doctor that i visit knows how to treat my condition. They don't even have sugestions.
I am 25 years old and i weigh 91 pounds. I am on a gluten free diet totally but i am still losing weight and i sufer from constipation, very dry skin and acid reflux. I also have swollen gums and my hands are always cold.
I know many Americans have this condition and they are more educated as doctors are well equiped with information so i am asking your help in managing this disease. My 6 year old daughter also has the same symptoms and i just don't know how to manage.
My skin is very saggy like an old woman in her nineties. my hair falls out in clumps everytime i comb it. I don't have money to come to the U.S for treatment so i am asking what can i do to regain weight and stop the symptoms? As for my daughter, what do you suggest for her regarding her weight and so forth. She is very tiny for her age.
My email adress is firstname.lastname@example.org
