  1. Thank you for all the info. She does stay on a gluten free diet exept for the hidden gluten unknown to her. Right now I feel like her stomach, small intestine is not absorbing or passing on the food she is eating. It sits until there is too much and she gets sick. Does celiac disease eventually kill your intestines over time? I know that is a blunt statement but given our doctor situation I can't get any answers. tricia
  2. Hi, I'm new here, so please be patient. My mom is in the hospital, I'm looking for last chance info. She has been diagnosed with Celiac for about 12 years. Does stay on her diet, occassionaly slips, she's human. She is 73, pretty active, no other medical issues. Had an intestinal blockage in NOvember, surgery removed twisted intestine. Didn't bounce back too quick, lost a lot of weight. Stuck to her diet and had another "blockage" about 1 month ago. Doctors can NOT find a blockage. Had several scans, does have bowel movements but once she starts to eat again, she keeps it down for about 72 hours and then gets sick. Bowel movements are watery, keep in mind she has no solid foods in this case. I can not get a doctor to explain why she keeps getting sick. We have been very careful about what she eats, gluten free, cottage cheese, mashed potatoes, apple juice, ect. I am trying to understand what is going on here as the doctors have no info. Is it possible to have damaged the villi so much that they are gone? No way to rejuvinate them? Am I close? Any info would be appreciated. Many thanks.
