It's a shame that we can't contact him and let him know to be tested.
He looks like a candidate for celiac sprue to me.

Why do you think that? You do know that he just had major heart problems a few months ago and has lost weight on purpose improve his health?

I can't say he's in the best of health but he has lost a bunch of weight ON PURPOSE and he did have serious heart trouble. I don't think celiac is a consideration.

Can you imagine being in public office, having to eat at all those state dinners all over the world, and being celiac? The risks would be enormous. You would have to have a special chef travel with you at all times or risk being in some foreign hospital regularly.

I think it would be easier. They plan these things so well and everything would be alerted and taken care of. They also don't just serve the President anything when over seas. What if someone tried to harm him!

People would be more aware of the food he gets to make sure it doesn't contain anything he couldn't have. I think it would be easier because you would have so many people who are cautious. He probably would get the best tasting gluten-free stuff to.
