Gluten Free Diet

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...

 

Brian was diagnosed with stage IIB adenocarcinoma at age 52 in January 2012. He had chemo/radiation followed by IvorLewis surgery in June.

Peg,

This site can sometimes be a bit difficult to use due to server availability (long response times to add posts) We also have a facebook account for EC survivors and caretakers. I can add you to the group if you are a facebook user. Just send me a friend request I am listed under Paul D. Adams and I can add you to the group if you wish.

Best Regards,

Paul
