I have been diagnosed two weeks ago today, but i'm feeling very weak, my doc put me back on the iron 2/daily. How long will it take for my body to start absorbing the nutrients, I wanna put on some weight, I really need it..I'm very thin. :(

Not to get you down, but for some it can take several weeks, months and a few can even take up tp a year. It really depepnds on how much healing your gut needs to do. You may take a while to heal, but you will probably begin to notice the positive effects of being gluten-free long before your healing is complete, maybe even very soon. When my son went gluten-free, he was back to normal in about 6 weeks.

I know it's difficult and learning the diet can be very frustrating, but think about how good you will feel when your body is at it's best for the first time in your life. Also the extended healing time just serves as more of an incentive to remain gluten-free, because you will realize how long it takes to get better if you cheat.

Take care and you'll be gaining weight before you know it!

Mario,
I've been gluten free for 2 months now and am just getting enough energy to climb the stairs without getting out of breath. My energy is returning in tiny increments, but I am noticing a difference.
Hang in there!!!!

Mario,

I've been gluten-free 2 months today and I'm feeling better energy-wise. I used to faint A LOT... but I'm on iron now as well as centrum ( a multi-vitamin ) and calcium with Vitamin D. It will take some time, but believe me, you'll start to feel different. My nails used to be soooooooooooo brittle and weak and wouldn't really grow that long. Now, I can't believe it... they are strong and are growing and look healthy. You'll see results in time. Keep it up and remember, taking that iron is very important!
