IF you spend 3 months eating non gluten stuff and your villi grows back? What if you ate some gluten stuff, does it take those 3 months again to come back????

It may take longer than 3 months for your system to heal depends on how long your Celiac has been active. Your need to maintain a gluten free diet for at least 6 months to 1 year to give your system time to heal. Even after healing your villi may not be back to 100%. Even after maintaining a gluten free diet anytime you eat gluten you will do dammage to your villi that may not heal again so it's not worth the risk.

I agree. It took at least a year for my villi to "reactivate" after becoming gluten-free. If I accidently eat something with gluten, I have problems for at least 2 weeks after the incident. It is better to avoid the gluten!

This is a useful post thanku for writing it.

For me I found out that it can take two years. I am not expecting short term healing because of also my trigger event experience I am going through and this has revealed the process
of healing for me, is going to be a very slow journey that is going to need a lot of patience. But in the end, healing is a possibility that I really didn't have before. Had Gerds and Ibs and other things for over twenty years.

Even if ur villi does come back, u need to maintain and live the diet anyway. My focus is now on, this is a new way of living and a new thing for me, that I must do for the rest of my life, so I can live with that. Because the alternative was worse that brought no true relief or healing. for me it has become a blessing.

Of course this in one of those things with no pat answer. It all depends on the person, the amount of damage, what and how much you ate, and so on.
