My answer atleast 30 years, but the more I sit back and consider the more I think it was before then.

 

How long have you been gluten free?

 

Could it be 10 months.?

 

What are you dealing with now:?

 

leaky gut

more severe reactions to gluten mistakes.

bloating

food intolerances

mal absorption

super sensitivity/cross contamination

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.

    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
