My mom had guillain-barre about two years ago.I have read that celiac disease can sometimes follow a viral infection. She has been sick non-stop since she had the guillain-barre.

She has constant problems with urinary track infections which led to the diagnois of interstitial cystitis,which cause to her to have to change her diet. She did good for awhile,but now is having severe stomach pains,vomiting with almost every meal,and extenvise weight loss.An d she doesn't sleep more that a couple hours a night.

Some days or weeks are good for her others,are to difficult to deal with. I would like to see my mom enjoy life again,and be able to enjoy eating without of fear of whether or not it is going to cause a problem.

If anyone can give me some information,or their thoughts on this,could it be caused from the guillian-barre,and what can be done to help her

If your mom has health insurance I would try the blood-work first then if you do not get the answers you are looking for Enterolab would be a great 2nd opinion.

If she doesn
