Textbook Problem

Chloe, age 30, has not had a period for over two years. Her gynecological exam turns up no abnormalities, but the hormones she is given to stimulate her menstrual periods do not work. Since the age of 10, Chloe has had painful stomach cramps, frequent diarrhea or constipation, and periodic iron-deficiency anemia. Multiple visits to doctors have failed to find the cause of Chloe’s health problems. At around the age of 20, Chloe had begun to wonder if she was a medical anomaly or a hypochondriac.

  Still bothered by her health problems and about to be married, Chloe seeks care again. This time she is seen by a nurse practitioner who has just read an article on celiac disease.
