  1. Please help me out. Hello, I am a 17 year old boy in CA. I have recently been made aware that i 90% have celiac. And after research, it is almost certain that I have the disease. I am scheduled for an endoscopy within the next 2 months or so. I am fairly healthy with eating and exercise as I started this lifestyle over a year ago. I lift weights 6/7 days a week. And do some form of cardio 6/7 as well. I have become overly obsessed with exercise as I get anxiety and depression if I miss a workout. I have lost 60 pounds over the course of a year, (whether or not celiac helped.) Although over the past few months I have been feeling fatigued and brain foggy, I am tired, and the only relief is through vigorous exercise. I work so hard and see little to no results so far. And over the course of a few months I have been getting worse at my physical activity. I went from doing 30+ pull ups to struggling to do 10. People tell me to take more rest days, even a week of to repair my muscles, but whenever I do, I lose all muscle tone and feel terrible. I get severely depressed. I am a little underweight and want to get bigger. So I eat more and rest more to rebuild and repair my muscles. And when I do, I feel bloated, sick, and I only gain dead weight to my stomach and lose muscle. It's terrible. I want to start gluten free now because of the wonderful stories of getting stronger and feeling clearer but I need to wait for the endoscopy. I hear problems of people who needed to stop working out for their body to heal (the villi, neuro, and muscular systems), and they eventually lose their motivation to work out. The twisted part in me is that I want to sort of keep this terrible feeling so I stay motivated to work out. Because my motivation is everything. I am severely lost, and depressed. My goal in life was to join the military, yet celiac shuts the door on those who want to join the armed forces. So my question is.. What do you suppose will change for me after the gluten-free diet? Will I feel better? Will I get stronger? Will my performance be affected? Will the depression stop? What do I do if my endoscopy result come back negative? Thank you, this is a huge problem for me.
  2. For those of you who work with this, how do you do it??  I was diagnosed 6 months ago and while it has gotten easier it's still not easy.    Tuesday night I ate something, I suspect the scoop of gluten free gelato I ate, wasn't.  I couldn't get out of bed until 6:00PM on Wednesday, and it was noon today.  When I get glutened I'm just flattened, I can't do anything else.  Sometimes for a day, sometimes for as long as 5 days.  I'm sure I don't have to explain that to anyone here.    I had to call into work the last two days.  I'm trying to work from home now but my head is in a fog.    I have neurological problems with this and sometimes I have a hard time focusing or just can't seem to get myself to care about work.  I keep wondering if I should look into my disability benefits or consider a career change.  Something less performance based with more flexible hours maybe.  It's weird to even think about doing that, I've always loved working and have worked a lot of long hard hours.  I just don't feel like I have it in me anymore. I've wondered about taking short term disability too, maybe just for a few weeks to try and reset.  I don't know.  Up until 2 months ago I wasn't sure I could maintain my job at all, I was failing miserably.  I don't know if it will still get better from here or if this is the best it's going to get.   I'm a divorced Mom so I don't have the option to stay home, I have to work.  I work 8:00 - 5:00 and some mornings just waking up is a big accomplishment.  It has been a struggle to get there by 8:00 most days.  That has improved lately as my glutenings are getting further apart.    I get 15 days of vacation each year and I'm hording them because I'm so afraid I'm going to need them for sick days ( I'll have to use 2 this week ).  What I really need is to take an actual vacation and to go to the beach.  Right now I'm trying to work and all I really want to do is go crawl back into bed and sleep this off.    Help, wondering how others cope.   
  3. I am 15 years old and I was diagnosed with celiac disease about a month ago. I think I am about average when it comes to strength for a 15 yr old guy. My plan for the summer was to work out and get a six-pack and all that and of course be gluten free. I think I have been gluten free for about half a month now and my fatigue is a little better but I know that isn't enough time for the villi to heal. And without villi I can't get nutrients. Sooo, my question is if I work out, go to the gym, run will it improve my muscles or will it just be pointless??  Any help would be greatly appreciated cause I'm really running out of time 2 more months until schools back.
  4. Hi, I am 17 and have just begun looking into gluten free. One of symptoms that i believe I have is malabsorption because I have been working out, chugging protien, and eating a lot for the past few years without gaining a pound. My arms and legs are very skinny. Have any of you also experienced lack of mass gain despite working out? Thanks
