I'm nearly 3 months out from my gluten free diet. Things have been really rough for me. I'm starting to discover that fruit and starch and other high carb foods are not really good for me, especially if I eat too many of them. I'm still very skinny.
I also discovered that I develop new allergies to foods if I eat them too much. An IgE test proved it, I developed allergies to 3 vegetables I had been eating recently up until the appointment.
Today I just feel so anxious and sick. I just can't wait for this day to end. I know there's alot more people here that have it worse than I do too, but sometimes I just feel like I'm dying.
Edit: Anyone have to take iron supplements on top of this diet? Wow, they hurt so much. >.>
Take heart. Be good to yourself, be patient, and consider that the "allergies" may not be permanent conditions at all, but instead temporary intolerances as your body adjusts and heals. I've been gluten-free for three months, and it's not always been smooth going. At first I feared I had a myriad of food intolerances in addition to gluten, but eventually I decided that I was paying such close attention to my body that I noticed every little thing. You'll likely find you can eat many things, in moderation, in several months. Until then, here are some things to try: my body responds EXTREMELY well to fish, kale, sauteed onions, garlic, flax seeds, sesame seeds, millet, amaranth, carrots, winter squash, and beets. Coconut is very good to me, as is green tea. Eat only whole foods--NO prepackaged gluten-free anything for a week and see if it helps. We're all different, but I feel bionic when I eat only whole foods.
As for an iron supplement, there's a naturally-derived iron supplement in liquid form (made in Germany) that I get from my local natural food store. It's expensive. But I was hospitalized for iron-deficiency anemia (I needed two blood transfusions before a doctor would even think about doing an endoscopy for a biopsy) and I'm regaining iron. It takes a long time for the body to convert food into heme iron and red blood cells. I left the hospital with a hemoglobin count of 10.9, and eight weeks later it was only 11.6. But hey, at least it's headed in the right direction.
