Hi this is my first post so please forgive me if I ramble. My husband has been under the care of the gastro consultant for over 12 months now. He has lost 4 stone, weight which he can ill afford to lose. He has had numerous tests and investigations, he has gallstones but the surgery to remove the gall bladder was cancelled 20 minutes before he went to theatre. A liver biopsy was to be carried out at the same time but was delayed - I have been chasing since end of December for a date. At a recent GP appointment I asked if my husband could be tested for coeliac disease and the GP didn't think this unreasonable. We are waiting on the result of this also. I keep reading posts which state that some people will eat a gluten free diet to lose weight, My husband is trying this diet but obviously the last thing he needs is to lose more weight than he is doing anyway. Can anyone advise me on any specific foods or vitamins which would help him to maintain weight. He is 6' 2" and about 12 months ago he weighed 12 stone - he now weighs 8 stone and it really is quite scary. Any advice would be most appreciated.
