  1. Hello, I'm writing on behalf of a family friend. She is 89 years old and has had Celiac Shrue for many years. While she has been careful to maintain a gluten free diet for years; with her advancing age she is having trouble maintaining her weight. Not being computer savy she has asked if I could find any information (particularly any new information) on this disorder and maintaining weight or diet advice. A higher calorie diet that would be tolerated by a celiac patient (and an older lady) would be most welcome. I should note that she has had excellent medical care and seems to have no other known complicating factors, beyond her age. This woman is a dear friend to the the family, and a strong old gal; I would be thankful for any information, suggestions, links to articles, etc. that anyone could provide. Thanks in advance for any information. CH
