My mother is 72 years old and swears she has celiac disease, but the test came back saying she doesn't. She is still determimed. Everything she eats makes her sick. She does have many digestive problems to which she has had all her life. She is getting so sick that she has lost 20 lbs.. She is wasting away and she doesn't know what to do but won't buy any gluten free food either. She is depressed and won't leave her house. When she does leave her house she doesn't eat. My daughter and son-in-law who are in the Navy and coming home for Christmas for 3 days doesn't even want to come see her won granddaughter on christmas day because she knows she can't eat anything. My mother loves good food. She's down to about 115 lbs. Any ideas for me to try and pass on to a stubborn women in her ways. JayneView Thread
