I am so sorry that you were given and followed this advice, and have now suffered its consequences. As you have discovered, gluten can still be doing its damage even if you are not suffering overt symptoms. It can be very sneaky that way. I hope you have now found yourself a good doctor who is taking care of you. Have you had your tests rerun? Have you had nutrient testing for key vitamins and minerals?
Perhaps most importantly, have you gone gluten free and are you starting to feel any better? Please talk to us some more and let us know if there is any way we can help you.
