Panda123 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)8 Months In And No ImprovementsHey all, I was diagnosed in early August 2012 and went gluten-free immediatly after. I had Iron deficiency anaemia that won't go away which led to an endoscopy (that proved Celiac). Since then, I got an iron infusion in December (which did nothing at all, other then bumping my Iron levels back to normal). I still have anaemia symptoms and overall i'm standing exactly where i was 8 months ago as far as symptoms go.
I have an appointment with my Doctor next week and will see what he has to say about this. I am careful with my gluten-free diet. I'm 18 years old so I was looking for a quicker recovery then most but have been very disappointed so far. Would love to get some of your oponions on this. Thanks guys!

Panda123 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)How Long To Feel Better After Iron Vi Infusion?I had one today about 8 hours ago and thankfully no bad reactions to it. It went smoothly. However, the only symptom i have of celiac disease (and that led to my diagnosis) was anemia / low iron. I was really hoping for some improvements after my infusion. Some of the symptoms i have are slight yellowing of the whites of eyes (no yellow skin), cold hands / feet, light headedness, pale skin.
I know it sounds a bit impatient of me but i've lived with these symptoms for over six years and was thinking of the infusion as an overnight solution but so far I don't feel one bit different. So my question is how long woudl it take for those symptoms to go away?
Thanks for reading!
EDIT: I meant to type IV in the title, not Vi

Panda123 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithRecently Diagnosed But No Reaction To Eating GlutenHey everyone,
I'm an 18 year old male that was diagnosed with celiac disease two weeks ago. I'm a pretty active and outgoing person and I have no symptoms of celiac disease whatsoever. Except, I have been iron deficient for the last few years which led to an endoscopy (my diet is pretty healthy and balanced) and thus i was diagnosed with celiac disease.
Now, I've been eating gluten free for about 2 weeks now and i don't feel one bit different. My question is, how do i know if I'm doing this right? I've cut out all the gluten free foods but please note i still use the same utensils as my family (none of them eat gluten free). I just rinse them with hand prior to using even they have been already washed. Is this good enough to heal my intestines?
Again, I dont react at all to gluten but intestines's lining is flattened so I obviously have celiac disease.
