charisvet added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)How Long Does It Take To Heal?I started going gluten free a year ago, but I still have pain. I am better than I used to be, but definitely not without digestive problems. I get glutened still from cross contamination from my roommates, and accidentally eating something little (like gum) that has trace amounts of gluten in. But I am learning how to eat, and I'll be out of this cc environment in 2.5 weeks.
How long did it take for you to heal up?

charisvet added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Gas, Flatulence, And Healing My Annoying InsidesI have serious gas issues. As soon as I get rid of it, it builds up again! I make jokes of it since I am in college and have nice roommates. However, the flatulence is stinky, loud, and painful. The bloating is bad and it is relieved when the gas comes out. Coffee enemas help a lot, but I'm really tired of doing those.
I've been gluten free for a year and also have cut out dairy, soy, eggs, and corn. I have to eat really naturally and am very strict. I really try to limit anything questionable, and eat almost nothing refined.
I get glutened every few days from my roommates using flour, or accidentally when I eat food at someone's house (Thanksgiving ham gravy = gluten). It gets better in a few days and then I get glutened again. I know from a colonoscopy from before that I had little or no microvilli in my intestines. They were flat and probably covered in mucous.
What can I do? When will the gas and pain go away? What do the rest of you do to get rid of gas? When will healing finally come?
