I have what seems to be an incredibly low defence against digestive infections and am desperately trying to find out why. If I imagine that most people's defence are an 8 or 9 out of 10, mine seems to be somewhere between 0 and 0.5 - literally!! I'm falling ill once every two weeks or so. I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 10 years , but this problem began about 4 years ago, so I don't think the two are closely linked. Last summer I also realised I am now gluten intolerant, but despite switching to a totally gluten free diet (and feeling much better for it), my hypersensitivity to infections persists. By chance I came across some info online relating to low stomach acid levels and I now wonder if this is a lead for me. Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this? If yes, please let me know. I live in Eastern Europe and access to good medical advice here is very hit and miss. Thanks in advance.
