  1. Hi Chloe, Have you tried a gluten free diet (off your own bat) to see if your symptoms ease? If not, I would try it. You sound as though you have been to hell and back I have coeliac disease and was also very sickly as a baby and extremely skinny growing up - it didn't matter how much I ate or what I ate I struggled to put any weight on. This only changed after I had experienced pregnancy (I'm not recommending that by the way as a solution) I would also keep a food diary and note what you have eaten and also how you feel, symptoms etc. Doctors take much more notice when you approach them armed with evidence and self knowledge. Big hugs sent. I really hope you find a solution soon. Moodle
  2. Hi all, I'm new to this forum but have found this discussion fascinating. I'm in the UK so I hope you don't mind me gatecrashing your site A bit about my own history: I was diagnosed with coeliac disease aged 15 months in 1970 - As a baby I was quite sickly but as I grew older things settled down. I follow a strict gluten free diet. About six months ago I developed Uveitis suddenly in my right eye and discovered I am HLA B27 positive. I noticed somebody had asked whether anybody else has coeliac disease and blood group O Rh Negative, I am (but am unsure of any connection) Other things that have happened of late, coinciding with onset of the uveitis are, severe joint pain, particularly lower spine, knees and right ankle and new bowel problems, namely mucous and blood (which has thankfully settled down now). The first instance of uveitis lasted three months and was treated with dilating drops and prednisolone corticosteroid drops every few hours. A month ago the uveitis returned in my left eye, but has settled down much faster. I have now been referred to a rheumatologist, who I see in March as they suspect anklosing sponylitis? I wanted to ask whether anybody else had a similar experience to the above and if so what helped them. Also I wondered where I might find further information regarding a low starch diet? I also wondered whether there is a scientifically proven link between HLA B27 and Coeliac Disease Many thanks in advance for your help Moodle
