gluten-free For 2 Years, Now What?

04 March 2013 - 03:20 PM

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. 


Frequent Heart Burn

29 August 2012 - 01:44 PM

I have been gluten-free since Feb 2011 but in the last few months I have been getting frequent heart burn, even while eating things that aren't typical culprits. Has anyone else had frequent Heart Burn after going gluten-free or is this just me getting old LOL?
