Low Levels Iron/vit D

Recommended Posts

My daughter diagnosed a year ago with positive TTg and also had low vit D and iron.  Went gluten-free, and levels rose nicely at 6 months.

Retested this week and she is very low again.

My question is this...does this mean she is somehow getting gluten again?

OR

Are iron/vit D levels something you struggle with even after going gluten-free?

I had low iron (ferritin) and vitamin D at my dx, but my levels are now normal after a year and a half of being gluten free. Has she has another TTG? It appears that she may be getting gluten somewhere.

Gluten intake and low Vit. D are two different things and one doesn't necessarily have to do anything with the other.  I assume that being in So. Cal means you get plenty of sun?  Did you augment the Vit. D intake when you went gluten free?  There is a chance of there being gluten introduced into her diet- Is she having any of the symptoms she had before? If not, I would suspect a general need to up her intake.

I would be more concerned with the low iron. What is causing her levels to drop when they had improved initially six months after going gluten free?

I live in Sunny California, but we are conditioned to wear sunscreen. Many here have vitamin D deficiencies as a result. I was deficient in vitamin D despite supplementation at the time I was diagnosed. The same for iron supplements.
