Posted 10 November 2004 - 02:46 AM
Author: Sue Grafton
Character in book, Ann, mentions to investigator Kinsey, that she's been a celiac since childhood. The author evens details some of the symptoms of celiac.
I chuckled out loud when I read this page!
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I read Sue Grafton's series, and I have never noticed that reference! Of course, I was in high school at the time, and totally ignorant when it came to celiac disease...
