Hello there. I Was diagnosed coeliac 19 years ago and follow a gluten free diet. I wanted to seeing if any other fellow coeliacs have experienced the same thing. I'm 49 years old and in the last twelve months I've been struck down with two bouts of diarrhoea. Both have been doing the rounds at work. Now while others have suffered for 2 or 3 days, mine has hung around for much longer. The first time was 3 weeks and this current occasion is a week in with no signs of letting up. I'm hoping that I don't have 2 weeks to go. I have done the usual not eating for 24 hours, then introducing food, but this just puts me back to the beginning. I feel weak and listless as you can imagine. I saw my consultant after the first bout, who did an endoscopy and all was well. No nasty bugs detected by my GP either. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be prolonging the virus? I am also taking levothyroxine for low thyroid function, which of course, doesn't absorb and makes me feel worse. Any comments gratefully received, thank you 🤢
