Realtime experience with Celiac Disease

First of all, I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to share some experiences on Celiac Disease.

My grand mother suffered from Coeliac disease for the past five years. Initiallly we didnt know which disease she was suffering from, so we went to many hospitals and talked with many doctors. However, we did not find any cure and her symptoms continued and she continued to have much stomach pain. Before her gluten free diet. every day she would eat chapati at nighttime and puri at breakfast which all are made of wheat flour. Initially the doctors thought it was Alsor disease. After providing some blood samples to the lab and an endoscopy, finally the doctors declared that she was suffering from Coeliac disease, caused by gluten. Today she is on a gluten free diet and drinking fruit juice, eating curd rice, and drinking plenty of water.
This treatment went on for over ten months and the results shows relief.
