eyedltr replied to Cinderella64's topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Cinderalla64, Weight loss is very, very common especially if you are having issues with anxiety. Even after going gluten-free you may still lose some weight. As far as the antibody test, you do not necessarily need to go back on gluten. Depending on your antibody levels (initial diagnosis can be above 180 - normal is <10), they will still be above 10 up to 6 months to a year. However, antibody tests miss about 10-15% of those that should be positive.
