  1. Coping with Celiacs

    It is very sweet that you are reaching out about his illness, and that you are really trying to help. Although he may not express it, this probably means a lot to him. The first few months after getting diagnosed with celiac disease are super challenging. It takes time to mourn and get used to a new reality that is forced upon you. You feel like your body has betrayed you. I would still continue to check in but give him space to work it out. Time is a great healer. With that said, I think there might be some other issues he is confronting. I had celiac disease and continued (and still continue) to suffer with various related issues - low stomach acid (I couldn't digest meat and unintentionally lost a lot of weight!) and vitamin problems. Has he had his blood checked? Things really turned around for me when I started seeing an alternative medicine doctor, a naturopath, who was able to set me with excellent healing products and food suggestions. This might be something to consider. You'll pay out of pocket but it was SO worth it for me! Best of luck! He will heal.
