Brain ‘Stones’ Found in Man with Celiac Disease
A young man in Brazil who suffered from throbbing headaches and vision problems for 10 years turned out to have stonelike buildups of calcium in his brain.
The stones were likely a rare complication of the man’s celiac disease, a digestive condition that the man didn’t know he had, according to a new report of his case.
Because of his recurring headaches and vision problems, the man had been treated for migraines, but he hadn’t improved. When doctors did a CT scan, they found patches of calcification in the back of the man’s brain, in the areas that handle vision.
Lab tests showed that although the fluid circulating in the man’s brain was normal, it had higher levels of the antibodies linked to celiac disease, according to the report published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

new years resolution: take care of myself like i’d take care of a puppy.

that means:

  • make sure i have enough food
  • give myself fresh water
  • take myself for walks
  • let myself have time to play
  • tell myself how loved and cute i am

Is February too late for a resolution?

That is a “Hello…ladies…” look if I ever saw one.
