cirrus16 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)ImprovementHi everyone,
I had been in a fog for years - treated for depression etc - but it was really the weight loss that got my doctor searching. The biopsy last December confirmed celiac disease. I'm 57 and who knows how long I've had celiac disease. I'm still in the fog, but have noticed improvement. Now I would like to get an idea of what to expect regarding improvement. I'm sure I'm like a lot of you -- ok I'm celiac disease, I'm gluten free, but I want to have an idea about how/when recovery occurs to know I'm on the right track.
Is there a way the damage to the villi can be defined - minor, moderate, etc?? And would the degree of damage help predict recovery?
How often should blood work be done?? I assume this is a way to monitor improvement. My clinic uses ARUP Laboratories in Salt Lake City.
Last question. I believe I read something about celiac disease masking poor thyroid function. Does anyone have info about this? Should thyroid testing be done differently for us with celiac disease?
