What about other food intolerances? Have you tried an elimination diet? I found that corn was a huge culprit and that I felt as bad eating that as I did gluten... Perhaps there is something else in your diet that's causing your fatigue.

You may be super sensitive. You could try a diet of only fruits, veggies, and meat for a week to see what happens.

As stated above, it could be an additional food intolerance in which case it helps to keep a food/symptom journal. Only add one new thing per week so that you can tell what is causing your problems.

Four years is a long time to wait to get better. I hope that you can find a way.

Been gluten-free for almost 4 years - consider myself pretty well educated on celiac disease and NCGS. But I'm close to giving up - I feel like I've tried everything.

I have tried and/or still take:

a food-based multi-vitamin almost every day
digestive enzymes
sublingual b12
fish oil
a supplement call GI Revive which contains a bunch of awesome things for the gut

They have all helped a lot with the brain fog - but I'm still constantly fatigued and rarely feel like doing anything.

I've been tested for nutritional deficiencies, over/under active thyroid, and mono. I also gave up dairy and soy for about 6 months.

I'm willing to try anything at this point.

If you guys have ANY ideas - I'd appreciate the input.

I see you are a male.....have they tested your testosterone levels? If that is low, it can cause fatigue. Just a thought!
