Okay so I'm 2 and 1/2 years gluten free. A couple weeks ago I ate some oven baked veggies and I peed bright yellow. From what I understand we pee bright yellow it means we are getting rid of vitamins. I never pee bright yellow unless I'm taking vitamins and then it is always bright yellow. So does that mean my body isn't absorbing the vitamins at all?
I was reading in another section of the forum about Celiacs and premature gray/white. Some said their hair returned to its natural color after they got gluten out of their systems. My hair is now mostly white and I'm 39. These folks whose hair went back to normal were older.
My pant size jumped in Feb from 4-6 and by mid March to 8, now the 8's are skin tight, I can't even have a full range of motion in them.
Now to full disclose I added back dairy and egg in December but only in limited amounts so I just can't see that being the cause of the weight gain.
PS I have been glutenated a couple times this year. My elderly mother who lives with me has decided since I can't have bread and Velvetta Shells and cheese she has to eat three times as much. One time I think it was just that there were toast crumbs all over the kitchen. Another time I found one of her macaroni shells in my big bowl of plain dried beans.
PSPS I looked up Pee on the message board just now and found a discussion about Asparagus and how before diagnoses your pee doesn't smell bad after eating it but after going gluten-free it does. I've never noticed my pee smelling bad. In fact I think when I can smell it, it smells syrupy.
