How To Heal Fast?
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am 23 years old and I was diagnosed with Celiac over a year ago. I am somewhat better, but my energy level is not even close to where it should be.

For those who have completely healed from Celiac, what did you do that you think may have helped you heal quickly?

I've been taking multivitamnins, digestive enzymes, and iron supplements. I have also been exercising on a regular basis via yoga, swimming and running

Have your thyroid checked.

Hashimoto's is very common with Celiac.

It totally destroys your energy level.

Be extremely careful about eating out and be vigilant about cross contamination at home.

Traces of gluten can keep you from healing completely.

Even tiny amounts can sap your energy.

Be sure you are getting enough protein.

The body needs protein to heal.

It's harder if you are vegan, but still possible.

Look at Mark's Daily Apple and consider whether Paleo is appropriate for you.

Too many carbs and grains make me totally weak and tired even without gluten.

The stricter I limit grains and sugars the better I feel.

It's true for others as well.

Eliminating basically all lectins (grains, legumes, nightshades) I have been able to start healing, and not until then really, unfortunately. But that is just my case.

I personally am finding a low acidic diet is helping me.

eat a whole, natural foods diet. Eliminate if possible manufactured and processed foods. Stick with the gluten free that Mother Nature made. Properly balanced frequent meals with fats, proteins and controlled carbs will increase your energy levels 10-fold. Whereas the extremely high carb manufactured gluten free foods will cause sugar spikes and crashes and leave you feeling less energetic and oogy all the time.

Tingling in the hnds and feet is typical of low calcium levels. You might want to think about a calcium supplement with vit D to help absorb it.

Thank you!! I am taking 2000iu's a day of Vitamin D. A test showed VERY low levels before all this started.

I will call my Dr on Monday.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
