      Thanks. I've had low thyroid for years and for the past 3 years when I started losing weight and feeling tired they thought it was just my thyroid.I drink at least 2 Boost a day.All the info you gave was very helpful.

      Thank you.I've been thinking about asking my doctor about some kind of IV treatments but didn't know what to ask because even though I am taking lots of supplements if my body can't get the nourishment from food then it doesn't seem to be getting the supplements. At work they said if I can hang in there until next week I can have a few extra days off.At least they know how I'm struggling to do my job and are aware of it.I would like to know more about the iv treatments you were talking about.

I haven't been able to sleep much during the night and now I'm a nervous wreck.

      Feeling Overwhelmed
      I was diagnosed 3 months ago with Celiac and I'm not any better. I'm underweight and malnourished.I work a very physical job with employers who don't care. I struggle everyday with fatigue and joint and muscle pain yet I go to work everyday when alot of people call out alot. Today I asked if I could use 2 vacation days along with my regular 2 days off and they said no that I had to give them a week's notice. It's going to be slow at work then and they could get someone to fill in for me.I've been in tears  all day and I am so tired of this.Nobody understands, that's why I came here looking for support.I feel so alone and like nobody cares.I am so depressed. I take vitamins everyday and have been on a gluten-free diet. I started losing weight 3 years ago the doctor said since I'm older it will take awhile to heal.I come home from work and literally and go to bed until the next day. I spend my days off in bed because I'm too tired to do anything. Thanks for listening and would love any advice you may have.

      I'm having this problem. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease 3 months ago and I'm not feeling any better. I work a very physical job and struggle to get through each day because of fatigue and joint and muscle pain I asked today if I could use 2 of my vacation days next week and they said no.I've been in tears all day and still am because I do so much around there and the one time I ask for something they tell me no.
