I've been gluten-free for just over a week now, and I find that my stomach is still bloated. I never expected it to go away within a week, but in your experience (those who have had it as a symptom), how long did it take for it to go away after you went gluten-free?
Months. And then it comes back intermittently if you get glutened or go through a new "phase".
Some people see bloat go away quickly.
Just depends. No two people are the same.
Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.
Hashimoto's DX 2005.
Gluten-Free since 6/2011.
DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.
Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).

Every body is different. Don't worry about it.
"Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way we cope with it makes the difference." Virginia Satir
"It isn't for the moment you are struck that you need courage, but for the long uphill climb back to sanity, faith and security." Anne Morrow Lindbergh
"Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love."

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; finally DXed on 11/01/10. I figured it out myself. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.
