Losing Weight After 6 Months Of Being gluten-free
0

6 posts in this topic

I'm curious to know when you started gaining weight? I have been gluten free for more than 6 months and I just recently had normal antibody levels too. But, I'm still not gaining weight and having a tough time managing my weight.

I'm dairy free. I eat until I'm full, eat 3 meals, 2 snacks and some fruit everyday. Thanks for your help. :)

What do you eat? Do you consume fats, dense calorie foods, and desserts with lunch and dinner? Do you snack on nuts? Do you still have reaction symptoms, which could suggest other allergies?

I was diagnosed with Celiac almost 5 years ago and one of my main symptoms was wieght loss and I also continued to lose wieght after eating completely gluten free. In fact, I was hospitalized 5 months after my diagnosis because I had lost so much even though I was eating a ton. The doctors said it just takes time for your small intestine to heal and start being able to absorb nutrients again. I didn't start gaining anything back until almost 8 months after being diagnosed. So, I know that's not very nice sounding, but sometimes it just takes longer for your body to heal.

are you eating lots of raw nuts/seeds, vegetable oils, whole grains? Those things contain antinutrients which will mess with digestion and thyroid

Have you actually counter the calories you're eating? Many vegetables are extremely low in calories, so you could, say, eat a giant salad but still only get 200, 250 calories. Have you had your blood sugars measured at all? Weight loss despite eating a ton is a symptom of diabetes.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
