Apple CEO Jobs says has hormone imbalance

This sounds a lot like *my* personal experience and diagnosis. Whatever it is, good luck to him.

If he does, describing it as a "hormone imbalance" is ... a little o_O.

Wow. I just read this story and totally agree. It was my first reaction. I doubt anyone can just "email" Steve Jobs, but I'm highly suspicious he has Celiac. :(

I can't believe these responses...that is EXACTLY what I thought when I read the article this morning. You would think someone like him with internet access at his fingertips could research a little on his own....Unbelievable that doctors still can't figure this out!

I think he has pancreatitis, - causing his pancreas to not
make the enzymes to digest protein (protease), and possibly
not making the enzymes to digest fat (lipase) and starch/carbs
(amylase), through it's normal hormone synthesis. He says that
he has a hormone imbalance that is robbing him of protein and
was confirmed through bloodwork - which almost matches pancreatitis
(the pancreas endocrine function makes hormones [insulin and
glucagon] and it's exocrine function makes enzymes, - it wouldn't
actually be a hormone imbalance, but I could see where someone
might call it that). His history of pancreatic cancer probably puts
him at risk for pancreatitis. Enzyme supplements will manage the
imbalance, which would eventually allow him to regain the weight.

(It's not uncommon for people with celiac disease to also have
pancreatic enzyme deficiencies.)

I was diagnosed as having a pancreatic enzyme deficiency due to pancreatic atrophy that was found in the testing prior to my Celiac diagnosis. I was placed on an enzyme replacement for about 4 months before the Celiac was diagnosed. I looked a lot like Steve Jobs now when I was at my lowest point (had gone from 205lbs to 148 lbs in about 8 months). I think Celiac affects so many functions in the body that the symptoms are often diagnosed as the cause.
