Has anyone tried a gluten-free diet? We met with our GI doc today after an endoscopy earlier this week and he said that the small intestine looked like the beginning of celiac disease (allergy to wheat/rye/barley) and would like him to try a gluten free diet for a while along with putting the feeding tube back in for a couple months to see if that will help him gain some weight and heal up the duodenum. He had bloodwork done also which showed some serious nutritional deficiencies due to the malabsorption.
Thanks for any insight anyone has...
