Weight Gain After gluten-free?
Posted 01 May 2012 - 07:18 AM
Her endocrinologist that she sees for growth hormone deficiency was really excited about the Enterolab test results and the positive response from her gluten-free diet. He has long suspected a food absorption issue for her and he is the one that initially sent us to a pediatric GI specialist to try to figure out why she was underweight.
He left me with the impression that if gluten is really an issue she will start to gain weight but so far she has not gained any at all over the past six weeks. She will be 9 in July and weighs 40 lbs.
When did you see any noticeable change in weight after starting gluten-free diet?
