It may yake one year to to notice any sustaining recovery and total recovery if any may take three years. This too only if you are authentically on gluten free diet! There is a lot of cross contamination these days and no body like to tell you "the food that give you could be contaminated with gluten." Everybody is reassuring when the person involved is other than the self. So genwinly remaining gluten free is really tough but it is worth the trouble as gluten causes continues malnuetrtion which if left unattentd may slowly make our lives miserable!
