Have Stomach pain. Had celiac disease. Taking nexium. What is the cure?

My 21 year old daughter was told she had celiac disease but lately her stomach hurts, tired all the time, and just feels terrible. She is in college and so I blame a lot of being tired with all she does. I feel so bad though she calls all the time saying she can't function because she could sleep around the clock. She has had a colonoscopy, endoscopy, and a pap within the last couple of months. She was given a prescription for nexium.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.Forum.
Your daughter was very weak, always sleepy etc, recently diagnosed with with coeliac disease. It is a disease in families and having ulcers in the small intestines . It is formed by using gluten , a protein in wheat, barley, malt, and treticale, some doctors consider oats also cause ulcers.
I advise you to consult a gastro enterologist for diagnosis and treatment.
Now she is using Nexium(esomeprazole) will work to keep her comfertable actual treatment is the omission.
She should completely omit to take gluten containing things like wheat, barley, malt, triticale, and oats, for life. It is the internationally recommended treatment.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
