msfw added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithHas Anyone Gained Weight Without Gaining Size Or Muscle?I'm assuming this is related to the Celiac disease because it all started when I got really sick, but my doctors have been essentially useless.
I'm a fairly skinny 19 year old girl. I was just recently diagnosed but I've probably been dealing with Celiac since infancy. I'm tall - 5'8 - and I wear either a size 4 or a 6, sometimes an 8 (my measurements are 36 - 28 - 36) and I normally weigh about 145 lbs. Recently I've been weighing in at about 165 lbs but I haven't gained any size or muscle. The doctors are kind of ignoring it but it's really bothering me, I guess. 165 is very, very heavy for me. My PCP theorized that it could be built up fecal matter.
Has this happened to anyone else? It's driving me bananas.

msfw added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithNausea/indigestion With A Lot Of Other FoodsI just found out about my Celiac about a month ago and have been adjusting fairly well to the gluten-free diet and, for the most part, am feeling much better.
However, I'm getting REALLY bad nausea and upset stomach (diarrhea, exhaustion, acid reflux) whenever I eat a lot of different food that don't have gluten. I haven't really been glutened except for a few times there was a dirty pot or my roommate left crumbs out and I had severe cramping and bloating that doesn't feel like this does. I'm writing this after having eaten some gluten-free mac and cheese that I made last night, that also made me feel incredibly ill then but I thought it was just because I had a long day. None of the ingredients are spoiled and I checked for CC. All that was in it was corn noodles, Smart Balance light, cheddar cheese, Bob's gluten-free flour, milk, chex, and salt/pepper. Could it be that I have lactose intolerance? I understand that's fairly common amongst us. Is it just that those with Celiac are just oftentimes ill by things? I'm new to this, so I'd really appreciate the help.
