I thought I'd post this question as everyone was so helpful earlier in the year when my son was going through hell!
He finally got his diagnosis for coeliac disease in July, after a lot of prevaricating by the hospital he had been referred to for his biopsy in March.
He is maintaining a gluten free diet but he is still suffering from bouts of IBS-D, he has had a follow up appointment at the hospital where the consultant recommended that he continue on a low dose of Amtryptaline (10mg or mcg ) daily as she said this will help.
Having been undiagnosed for about 4 years and constantly being told that his symptoms were all in his head has left him somewhat anxious which I think exacerbates the IBS-D symptoms. He is now in his second year at Uni and coping well with the work and attending most lectures.
He does have another concern as he is due to spend a year abroad next year, as part of his degree, so ideally I would like to help him to get on top of his symptoms as much as possible before he goes away ( the fact that he is even considering this is a huge leap forward as he almost gave up altogether before his diagnosis!)
So the main question is would water kefir help to calm his symptoms down and has anyone else with coeliac disease tried it with success?
Sorry for the long post, also I wasn't sure whether to post here or on the IBS forum but since he is definitely coeliac I thought someone here might be able to help.
Many thanks in advance.
