Could be it inteferes with your bodies ability to use it? Like you say though it seems improbable its deficiency overnight????
It doesn't explain why I get brain fog every time I get glutened though. I mean, I don't just suddenly turn iron deficient one day and then not iron deficient the next when the brain fog lifts again.
But interesting nevertheless.
(just a wild guess)

I have apparently been a Celiac my whole life, and the nerve damage I thought was from a car accident is actually stripped nerves from the Celiac. Now I feel like I ought to send the settlement back to the trucking company that hit me. Oh, well. At least if I stay gluten free, it should heal over time, according to the neurologist & GI.

I thought this was thought provoking, granted the numbers of patients isn't all that high. We all have likely felt what we call brain fog......this article seems to give a reason that is often directly connected to celiac sprue! So many of us are iron deficient....and it looks like replacing our iron stores will help .
There could be some people with celiac that this has been true - but.....
I don't think I put to much into iron deficiency and brain fog - I had a high level of iron, but such a bad, bad brain brain fog. The celiac diease chose to pick my brain as the organ of choice to destroy. I still am only in the first month of gluten-free and I have a long way to go. My short term memory seems to have been effected - but I believe it will not be as bad six months from now.
Positive blood test for antibodies for celiac
SEVERE Gluten Ataxia - trouble speaking - could not even turn my head side to side - almost bedridden
March 07 - 2 different doctors have documented my records as confirmed Celiac
Oct 07 - found a secret to feeling better - no processed foods - The healing comes from eating raw vegetables, and fruits!
Husband - tested = celiac gene+diabetes gene
youngest - doc wont test has w/ Hashimoto Disease
middle- tested = celiac gene+lymphoma gene - dx-celiac
oldest - ignores warnings

Three words--Chocolate covered pineapple. My fave way of introducing a little iron boost to my system. Pineapple has tons more vitamin C than oranges. Dark chocolate has a bunch of iron. Plant based iron absorbs easier with the help of vitamin C. Is brain fog due to lack of iron? Dunno, but boy can I focus when I'm eating chocolate! LOL!
