Quick comment on the white brain lesions and gluten. Good grief! Hubby had MRI's when this all started in 2003/04, and the docs puzzled over the white brain lesions.. and not knowing anything at all about our world, wrote it off to too many falls from a 45 year competitive cycling career. Hubby is GF now and doing better in many ways. Has managed to reduce the benzos, but not off yet. sigh. His French doc. had him on ever higher amounts - I think he just wanted to keep him quiet until he died. Canadian docs do NOT have that view.
