7 years ago I became very ill in my late 30's. I had elevated liver enzymes, edema, was overweight, palpiations, and thought I was dying. The doctor did not test me at first for Celiac because I was overweight and didn't have diarrhea. However I had horrible heartburn.
Finally a holistic doctor had me tested and scoped and my vili were flat.
I began a gluten free diet about 7 years ago and today I am back to my normal weight. I went from a size 16 and now in size 4 pants. I feel like I have my life back.
My stomach is very sensitive even if when I don't have gluten, but digestive enzymes really helped, along with manuka honey.
