ula1234 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHow Long Do I Have To Wait For Improvement?Hello Everyone,
I am new on this site and was wondering if anyone could help me. I am diagnosing myself at this point because I've been to many doctors and none of them helped me so I am tired of spending the money. I have a few of the symptoms of Celiac disease (the worst being extreme constipation) and so I decided to start the gluten-free diet 6 days ago and see if there is any improvement. I figured it can't hurt. I was wondering how long do I have to wait to see improvement? I feel much better mentally already and I have enormous energy,my skin is clearing up too, but the constipation hasn't lifted. I also just read about Arrowhead Mills and Bob's Red Mill pancake mix contamination, and I had both for dinner for the past two days without knowing!v Could that possibly be the problem? Besides these two items I've been really careful. Also, I'm trying to avoid gluten products, but I am still eating some dairy and eggs and soy. Do you think it is a good idea to give it all up at once or to stick to just the gluten-free for a while longer?
