#903476 gluten-free For 2 Years, Now What?

Posted by MegRie on 22 January 2014 - 07:06 AM

Last week was the 2 year anniversary for me being diagnosed with celiac disease.  Overall I feel 100% better than I did two years ago.  Like most of you I have a few vitamin deficiencies to deal with.  So here I am still dealing with other issues.  For the last year and a half I've gained 15lbs (i know this can be related to celiac disease)  Extreme tiredness for the last 4-5 weeks, I have had issues with my hair and skin being dry, Brittle nails. I get 8-9 hours of sleep a night and yet still tired daily to the extreme.  Tired of being tired.   I have been tested for my thryroid but it's been a year or more since the last test.  I have emailed my doctor about following up with her.  

 

So for all you who have been gluten-free for awhile does this seem par for the course?  Knowing my luck my Doc will tell me it's all still related to my celiac disease but not much more I can do at home to be gluten-free at this point.  Have any of you had normal thyroid test and then within a year that changed?  TIA for any info you may have. 

Nicole,

 

Have you had any luck with figuring out what was making you so tired, or how to have more energy.  I've been gluten-free for about 3 years now.  Overall I feel so much better, but over the last few months I have been extremely tired again.  I started taking vitamins and those seem to be helping, but I feel like fatigue is a pretty consistent issue with me.
