Welcome to the forum, Blue14! :)  I took your reply from this thread: https://www.celiac.com/forums/topic/97225-newly-diagnosed-with-questions/  and made it into its own thread so you can get some better, personalized answers.

 

The damage to the villi in your small intestine from untreated Celiac disease can take a long time to heal up.  Everyone is different, and in individuals with severe damage at the start of a gluten-free diet, this recovery can take longer. Check out the second paragraph here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/treatment

Just like a cut to your skin, the more severe the damage, the longer it takes to heal.  And it takes a long time for things to get back to normal.

Thank you LauraTX. That's the situation I'm in now. I jumped on here today to get some ideas. I have been gluten-free for about nine months and I had a brief time of feeling better but lately it's been worse. My gut box is back to being angry and I've also been getting dermatitis. I've cut out dairy and am at my wits end.
