Gastro Infections In Older Dx'D Celiacs
Posted 27 January 2010 - 12:18 PM
So my questions are:
Were any of you diagnosed with celiac disease after age 55 (and years of misdiagnoses for symptoms?
If so, did you have continued symptoms which were later diagnosed as intestinal dysbiosis or 'gut infections' from bacteria, parasites and/or candida or other yeasts?
Did you have more than one of those infections? Which ones? Did you successfully eliminate those 'bugs' with treatment? Botanical or drug treatments?
Do you believe that having undiagnosed celiac disease for so long (until after age 55) made you more susceptible to those 'gut infections'?
I would like to hear specifically from celiacs diagnosed after age 55. Thanks.
