Freelancer posted this link ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/224... on another thread today which I found most interesting, and now want to know if there is a theory that developing coeliac makes you overweight? Although I used to watch my weight before diagnosis I was never overweight. The weight gradually crept on yet I had not changed my eating habits and found the weight impossible to shift. Presumably coeliac takes a while to develop. The study has quite a small sample so not sure how much statistical significance it has but it is an interesting question that is being addressed by the medical profession.
