Just wondering if anyone else here presented w/o losing any weight/being malnourished. At the time I was most symptomatic I was 16y/o, 6'2", and 275lbs(2.5 yrs ago). I lost about 10lbs after going gluten free...and I have since gained back that weight +5 lbs along with another inch of height. None of my doctors(including the pediatric GI department at UCLA) had seen or heard of someone not presenting with weightloss and malnourishment, so if anything, hopefully this post helps someone out there.

Perhaps this is just something to do with my always having the rarest of the rare in presentations of stuff... but who knows...

Hi Subverted,

Yes, actually there are LOTS of celiacs who are overweight, even obese! The current estimate is at least 40% of celiacs are either overweight or obese. I myself fall in that category.

I'm shocked at your doctors (including the pediatric GI dept at UCLA) for not being up on the current celiac literature. They should read Dickey 2006. Print it out and take it to them as a present from me! tongue

Best wishes,
JoAnn
