Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

This is a great article that is pretty comprehensive and up to date with the current state of knowledge of celiac disease. Thanks GFinDC. It occurs to me that this article would be a great tool to give to physicians he need to get up to speed quickly on celiac disease.

I know they think that King Alfred (0800's) had Crohn's disease which obviously isn't celiac but does make you realise that all these GI conditions affected them back then. 

His bishop recorded events of King Alfred's life which included his stomach complications which they also think led to his death.

Crazy to think that someone who was fighting off Vikings and unifying England had such a condition. The symptoms sound horrible.

Yep, if they would take time to read it! :)

like during medieval times or ancient Rome?..

I'm pretty sure Epicurus had celiac disease, although it might have as well been some other gastrointestinal chronic illness. He and his contemporaries mention it a lot. Hence his philosophy. I've also heard some scientists suspect Blaise Pascal to have had celiac, as he had quite typical symptoms all his life.
