My sister was a coeliac, diagnosed 18 years ago at the age of 30. She had been gluten free as much as possible over that time but was recently involved in a study where she was required to consume gluten and record the results. This caused severe cramping, diarrhoea and vomiting. She eventually, on the day of the test, had a major stroke in the PONS area of the brain and died 13 days later. I would be interested in collecting as much research as possible to do with links between consumption of gluten of diagnosed coeliacs and strokes or, as this post has, stroke and undiagnosed coeliacs.  Her death will be the subject of a coroner's report some time this year. Any links to research can be sent directly to jeff@bilbyweb.com.au
With thanks in anticipation.
