Hi all more questions, my middle daughter who has been gluten free for two months now is now experiencing severe swelling in her left leg, from calf thru her foot. It is quite noticeable and takes along time for the color to return if you touch the leg in this area. Has anyone else ever experienced this or heard of this. She also has polyglandular autoimmune disease, which involves her thyroid, parathyroid and we know that it can develop rheumotory arthritis but this in only one extremety that is swollen. Please let me know if any of you have any thing like this and what is typically done in this case. Also has anyones child had such severe problems with thriving on the gluten free diet that they had to have an engitube inserted for a while until they were able to thrive and not have adverse symptoms persist?

Hi Kim,

I checked into polyglandular autoimmune disease, and it didn't sound like it was too nice of a disease! Celiac is nothing compared to it. It sounds like she is having circulatory problems and edema in that leg. What did her doctor have to say about it? It is probably what is giving her so much trouble and why she isn't thriving on the gluten-free diet. I hope you find out what is causing the swelling, so it can be fixed. It doesn't sound like it is celiac disease related, but you never know.

God bless,
