8 Months In And No Improvements

22 March 2013 - 01:55 PM

Hey all, I was diagnosed in early August 2012 and went gluten-free immediatly after. I had Iron deficiency anaemia that won't go away which led to an endoscopy (that proved Celiac). Since then, I got an iron infusion in December (which did nothing at all, other then bumping my Iron levels back to normal). I still have anaemia symptoms and overall i'm standing exactly where i was 8 months ago as far as symptoms go.


I have an appointment with my Doctor next week and will see what he has to say about this. I am careful with my gluten-free diet. I'm 18 years old so I was looking for a quicker recovery then most but have been very disappointed so far. Would love to get some of your oponions on this. Thanks guys!

How Long To Feel Better After Iron Vi Infusion?

10 December 2012 - 06:23 PM

I had one today about 8 hours ago and thankfully no bad reactions to it. It went smoothly. However, the only symptom i have of celiac disease (and that led to my diagnosis) was anemia / low iron. I was really hoping for some improvements after my infusion. Some of the symptoms i have are slight yellowing of the whites of eyes (no yellow skin), cold hands / feet, light headedness, pale skin.

I know it sounds a bit impatient of me but i've lived with these symptoms for over six years and was thinking of the infusion as an overnight solution but so far I don't feel one bit different. So my question is how long woudl it take for those symptoms to go away?

Thanks for reading!

EDIT: I meant to type IV in the title, not Vi

Recently Diagnosed But No Reaction To Eating Gluten

24 September 2012 - 05:03 PM

Hey everyone,

I'm an 18 year old male that was diagnosed with celiac disease two weeks ago. I'm a pretty active and outgoing person and I have no symptoms of celiac disease whatsoever. Except, I have been iron deficient for the last few years which led to an endoscopy (my diet is pretty healthy and balanced) and thus i was diagnosed with celiac disease.

Now, I've been eating gluten free for about 2 weeks now and i don't feel one bit different. My question is, how do i know if I'm doing this right? I've cut out all the gluten free foods but please note i still use the same utensils as my family (none of them eat gluten free). I just rinse them with hand prior to using even they have been already washed. Is this good enough to heal my intestines?

Again, I dont react at all to gluten but intestines's lining is flattened so I obviously have celiac disease.
