  1. Kirk you may want to try ScandiShake from Axcan Pharma. You can get a free sample by calling 1-800-472-2634. The shakes are 600 calories when mixed with 8 oz. of whole milk and are available in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. They also carry a lactose free or sugar free version for anyone who has other issues. I was using Ensure Plus which is 350 calories but Scandishake is much higher in calories. The website is www.axcan.com. They carry additional weight gain products that may be of interest to you. Good luck.
  2. Crippling Exhaustion/oversleeping

    Hi everyone, I am new to this post. I have not been officially diagnosed a celiac but my enterolab results show a celiac gene and a gluten intolerance gene (DQ2,1 subtype 2,5) and positive fecal fat. I also have a malabsorption issue going on and have lost about 25 lbs in the past year. I too suffer from extreme fatigue but I also have chronic Epstein Barr Virus. You may want to consider being tested for this virus but, unfortunately there is no cure for this. It is triggered by stress so that combined with gluten can cause ongoing problems with your energy level. I take a magnesium supplement, Bovine colostrum, Sun chlorella and I just ordered some creatine My energy levels have improved slightly but as soon as I get stressed I want to crawl into my bed and sleep. I know it's easier said than done but try to alleviate some of the stress in your life.
  3. Restless Legs Syndrom (rls)

    Hi Chelse I had a problem with charley horses at night but after putting a bar of Ivory soap under my top sheet it stopped. I know it sounds crazy but it worked for me. It's cheap and worth a try good luck.
