In Topic: How Long Would It Take To Feel Different/better?

06 December 2012 - 10:56 PM

We are definitely all different, and some of the differences might depend on if you're totally gluten free and how you've gone about making the changes. I ended up going almost low-carb at first because I found it hard to figure out what to eat, and that can definitely change how you feel in hurry.

I'm so glad I started this thread. Thank you all for clearing up some misconceptions I had and for talking sense. I'm not always the most sensible person!

I'm not sure what deficiencies. I read it here:

As Lara Field, pediatric dietitian specializing in celiac disease at the University of Chicago (http://www.feedkids.com) points out, going gluten-free can also lead to certain nutritional deficiencies, so you should be certain of the diagnosis before committing you — and perhaps your entire family — to this diet.


I went to that website, but didn't see any deficiencies listed there.

Thanks for putting this in perspective for me. I was reading something a few weeks ago where a GI doctor really didn't want patients to go on a gluten free diet without being diagnosed with a problem because gluten free diets are deficient. Is this anything to be concerned about, if I add in a multi-vitamin, etc.?

Thank you all for your good information and advice.

Do I need the diagnosis? I honestly might. I have a desire to have it be scienfically verified, you know? I think because my diagnosis was IBS for so many years. But boy oh boy was I in pain. So I need to figure out what I can live with.'

I was hoping someone would say that once I got over the first few days or week, I'd settle back into my previous level of discomfort. I know, pipe dreams. :D
