Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, February 23, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOP By JEANE DIXON SATURDAY, FEB. 24 Your birthday today: Eagerness for progress keeps you on the go all this long year of complex, external conditons. Today's natives are of changeable dispositon, able to concentrate on intangibles, abstract ideas, not always very practical in material matters. AIRES (March 21-April 19): Give some thought to what seem to you limits or problems, seek technical advice on how to resolve them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Leave financial maneuvers out of your weekend; concentrate on social outings or at least the symbolic forms of travel. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Reach out to share whatever you have that is good with your friends and loved ones, expecting nothing in return. CANCER (June 21-JuIy 22): Tidy up your work situation, take care of pending routines first, then turn your attention to domestic affairs. LEO (Jply 23 - Aug. 22): Get an early start, catch up on your favoi-ite sports, hobbies. Your speculative interests offer brisk excitement. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept 22): Skip quibbles over past details, concentrate on arranging your finances, settling accounts, reclaiming things you've lent out. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): The elan, personal excitement over what you do means more than the actual details or even much' of the reasons for it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): You have people waiting to see LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Gluten-free diet answer to problem Dear Dr. Lamb - My wife has a serious medical problem and the medical bill has already reached $15,000. She developed diarrhea which tho doctors thought was bacterial colitis. She was having bowel movements 10 to 15 times a day. She was admitted to the hospital ICU with diarrhea and pneumonia. Finally, they said she should be on a strict gluten-free diet and the only medicine she would need would be prednisone. I took her home and then one morning she went to the toilet and dropped to the floor with a stroke. The doctors claimed she also had a small bleeding around the brain. They released her with the same instructions. Her weight dropped from 180 to 118 pounds. I have to help her in and out of bed and on and off the toilet. We have a serious problem which I wish someone could possibly solve. Can you help in any way? Dear Reader - The problem Is Celiac disease, caused by a defect from birth preventing absorption of gluten, a product found in all cereals except corn and rice. It is present in wheat, rye, oats, and barley. It is a difficult problem to diagnose and treat. Individuals with this problem must eliminate all foods that contain gluten. They cannot eat any cereals except corn and rice or use any foods that have used any other cereals. This eliminates foods made with wheat flour such as gravy, breads, cakes, or any pastries that use flour for thickening. Soy flour and rice flour can be used as substitutes. At first, most of these Individuals should not use milk or any items made with any milk products. The damaged small bowel usually does not have the enzymes necessary to digest the milk sugar, lactose, and it ton aggravates the problem. Sometimes all sugar and foods with sugar, which include fruits, and ordinary table sugar must be eliminated. Ordinary sugar is a double sugar and the severely damaged digestive tract, may not be able to absorb it either. As a precaution, honey should be the main source of sweeting. As you can see from this, the diet has to be based mostly on vegetables, meat, fish and fowl, being careful to eliminate any flour products in their preparation. All forms of coffee, including those that are caffeine free, colas and cocoa should _be eliminated.' Bleeding tendencies are common to people who have a severe problem such as you describe, because the diarrhea prevents the normal absorption of vitamin K, the blood clotting vitamin. The diarrhea and poor absorption leads to multiple vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and for this reason, patients with this problem need replacement of all of their vitamins, including folic acid (five to 10 milligrams a day), iron, calcium, and B vitamins, and large doses of vitamin A (which they can utilize without developing toxicity because of the absorption problem). By following this strict program, many individuals can be significantly benefited. Some also require cortisone (prednisone) or related medication. I hope things do improve in your difficult problem.
