#663914 Depression Question

Posted by Mama Melissa on 29 December 2010 - 05:33 PM

Hey,
I just wanted to know if anyone here fights bouts of severe depression and feeling hopeless with the diet even when you know your 100% gluten free,i find one of my earlier symptoms before diagnosis was depression and now i do go through phases of severe bouts still although not as long lasting as before diagnosis,it really impacts my life.I wanted to know if anyone here has the same problem and how they combated it??also how long did it take if ever for the diet to get rid of the depression??I'm seriously concidering maybe medicating for atleast the next few months until the diet kicks in a little longer:(

#663625 More Susceptible To Illness?

Posted by Mama Melissa on 28 December 2010 - 02:24 PM

Hey Loey,
My answer to you would be YES celiac disease can supress your immune system because your eating the offending foods and your bodys trying to fight them off which in turn makes you less suseptible to fight off other infections.I however am lucky and was diagnosed fairly early and my blood counts were perfect even tho i sure feel anemic and tired they swear im not:)Still havent done full vitamin levels i will be doing those next week.I also find when i do get sick it tends to be more in the fall/wibter months just lasted longer than most as i did take alot of antibitotics in the past years due to severe sinus problems which i must say have almost 100% improved on the diet:)Now i wonder if my seasonal hayfever for grass/trees will improve or it has no ties?? Time will tell xoxo
