Could it be 10 months.?

 

What are you dealing with now:?

How long did you experience symptoms?

Most of my life (39 years).

 

How long have you been gluten free?

Only 8 months.
 

What are you dealing with now:?

Still have some fatigue. "C" is still with me but less. Joint pain is greatly reduced; I am now mostly stiff and weaker than before. I still get back pain but I don't think it's gluten related. My thinking is still not as clear as it once was; I'm not sure how much that will improve. I do react badly to cc or accidental glutening but I alwaus did. I still have dairy issues.

 

I do have other autoimmune issues that aren't fully resolved though, so they could be causing the above symptoms.

 

the things that resolved are the stomach aches, bloating, hypoglycemia, hairloss, migraines, some fatigue, muscle cramps, most of my joint pain, and my skin is improving slightly (less acne).

How long did you experience symptoms?

 

Most of my life (30 years). Although i didnt know it was caused by glutened. 95% of symptoms came in the last 5 years.

 

How long have you been gluten free?

 

3 weeks.

 

What are you dealing with now:?

 

Anxiety i didnt have before, vitiligo, leaky gut (probably), understanding where gluten is hiding, understanding what i can eat, other food intolerances i didnt know i had, bloating, stomach pain i didnt have before.

 

 

What has been resolved?

 

I added this question to make it bit more positive to read :)

 

Brain fog gone, drowsiness gone, ridges and white spots on nails are gone, hair better, skin better, irritability gone, much more nice/understanding to people, stress gone (!), couple of kilos gone, arm pit sweat gone (wtf?), feelings of anger gone.

 

Im pretty sure my fatigue is gone too. I only say "pretty sure" cause it feels it will get even better soon. But im actually already happy with my energy levels after 3 weeks off. And few more other things are gone.

    • Weird things people have said
      You are right Dania, you cannot have "mild Coelic" disease and you cannot eat "a bit of gluten here and there" if you've been gluten free for a while. Coelic disease is a lifetime commitment to being gluten free, even if you don't have symptoms, it is still damaging the villi in the gut, which can lead to more serious health problems, (not that Coelic disease is not serious, because it is).  Some people may question whether it is safe to use the same colander as those cooking gluten, but it depends how well it is washed up as it is quite easy to miss bits. Personally, I bought a new one and I would definitely not use the same sieve as the mesh is far too tight not to collect  small amounts of gluten. I'm not too surprised at doctors not knowing all they should know about Coelic disease, it's the same here in the UK where Coelic UK actually advise doctors on the disease.

      Hi Chris, haven't had a chance to read the whole conversation but regarding dairy, if you are suspicious of something, drop it for some time and see. You are still healing so maybe dairy is bothering you now. Also look at the nightshades, corn, dairy, soy, and eggs. I had a horrible time last year. I had muscle twitches, brain fog, pain, was tired,etc. I searched online and decided to drop all of those things I mentioned above. I am not sure what bothered me since I dropped them all at once but i slowly began feeling better. Now, i reintroduced eggs again and sometimes have lactose free milk with my coffee. I recommend eating salmon, tuna, bone broth soups, using olive oil and coconut oil and not eating much or not at all processed food even if it is marked gluten free.

      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
