Exercise Recovery Is Improving

5 posts in this topic

Yesterday I played hockey with my tenage son. 'Normally', I would be totally incapacitated today. (I am 52). To my surprise I am only a bit stiff-I even did a light workout! Hope this can be some inspiration. Hell-maybe I can still make the Habs!

Yeah! I went running with my teenage, cross country team captain daughter and same thing. Isn't it wonderful to get healthy again? I'm also 52! It is like we are getting younger instead of older now, isn't it?

I hope I can look forward to this soon - I'm 32 and am tired. Been gluten-free for about four months, and still have a lot of vitamin deficiencies (maybe part of why I'm tired, I guess). I really want to get back to working out, but have a hard time starting out as slow as I need to - I want to jump back into where I was. Looking forward to recovering like you both!

Hi, quick introduction....name is Paul and I'm a long term competitive cyclist although I'm doing some running now and hopefully do triathlon at some stage. I think my situation is atypical. I was diagnosed with celiac disease after having DH and mild stomach pain for 1-2 years. I'd say mainstays of my diet were wheat based products such as cereal and bread. I don't think the celiac disease had kicked in enough for it to have affected my speed - infact I had my best year ever on the bike this year. I'm still hoping celiac disease doesn't now go on to affect me even though I'm going gluten-free now...infact some people gave suggested performance my improve with the reduced inflammation. Feel free to get in touch as am learning all the time and use sports nutrition so can suggest which products I've not had an issue with, and my experiences with different foods and how it's fitting into my training.

    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.  
    • I have Common variable immune deficiency (CVID) which has impaired my IgA and my IgG. I have infusions monthly for immunoglobulins. I had a blood test for celiac which showed negative however, I have nearly every celiac symptom. Everything else I have been tested for and believe me I have been tested. Kidneys, Gallbladder, emptying studies, and on and on have all been o.k.    I did go partially gluten free once a long while ago and I did feel better. I wonder if I just go gluten free if it would make a big difference.
