I've been gluten free for about four months now with a few accidental glutenings from cc, but I've been pretty careful about what I'm eating and lately I have been craving salty foods like crazy, is it possible this is related to celiacs? I craved salt before going gluten-free too just not this badly, its like an insatiable craving.

When I first went off gluten, I HAD TO HAVE CHOCOLATE. I could have eaten it for breakfast lunch and supper, that passed and then it was potato chips. Thankfully my cravings have passed but for a while there I was not sure whose body I was living in cause it sure wasn't mine! I think it probably takes our bodies some time to re-boot after the gluten is removed. We all have nutritional deficiencies from the malabsorption so maybe salt is what your body needs right now.

No not yet, I figured I'd give my body a little more time to heal and see if it improves, also I still can't get enough sleep. I could sleep all day and still be exhausted doesn't matter if I get 4,8,14 hours of sleep
