alib91 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping With5 Weeks But No Improvement...I started eating gluten free 5 weeks ago today, and although my doctor told me that I should feel slightly better after a few days gluten-free and then much better about 4 weeks into a gluten-free diet, I am still feeling awful. I have had occasional "not so bad" days, but even then I still have a lingering nausea.
The last week or so, I even think it has got worse and I am feeling very nauseous whenever I eat or drink anything, be it a bowl of brown rice with vegetables, or a cup of tea.
Is this all part of the healing process or am I doing something wrong? I've also limited my dairy intake and am now only having yogurt in the mornings for breakfast but take soya milk in tea/coffee.
Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!

alib91 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Newly Diagnosed And Need Advice!Hello everyone,
I got diagnosed with coeliac disease about 2 weeks ago and have pretty much been gluten-free ever since, but I am still feeling really nauseous all the time, which gets a lot worse after eating/drinking anything. I also feel really bloated and after I eat, I look like I'm about 6 months pregnant, which isn't good for a 21 year old!
I was just wondering how long it should take before I start to feel better and if anyone has any advice to help with the discomfort in the meantime?
I have been eating less dairy since I was diagnosed, but haven't cut it out completely. I'm not sure if this is the right way to go in order to recover quicker?
Also, I gained a lot of weight before I was diagnosed and wondered how long before I starting losing and getting back to my old weight.
Finally, I am feeling really disorientated and my brain just feels like it isn't working at the moment, and I wasn't sure if this is normal!
I would ask my doctor these questions, but I'm in Spain for the next 5 months so unable to get much medical help!
