Hunger has returned after three months gluten free

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have always been overweight, although I am not a big eater. I thought I had a slow metabolism or hypothyroid, although it checked out OK. After three months of going gluten free (non celiac gluten sensitivity), suddenly I  have the appetite of my teenage son! I Also, my normal intolerance to cold is disappearing, and I am getting occasional hot flashes! Kind of like him-he never wears a coat!  I am worried about gaining more weight so I have to keep  the calories  in check and watch what I eat. Is there a recognised medical reason for this? I dont think I was ever undernourished. Is it possible my metabolism, thanks to my thyroid and other organs healing, is returning to normal?

I'm only a week in on gluten free. I was diagnosed with celiacs disease a week ago. I'm finding it's pretty serious, too. I'm a bigger woman but since I've went gluten-free I don't crave anything or get hungry and when I do eat, I get full quick. I'm confused but enjoying the lessened calories! I also found out I have sluggish thyroid. I'm about 4 days in on the meds for that.

Welcome to the forum, Mrs. Morgan!  

Please read our "Newbie 101" thread pinned at the top of the "Coping" section of the forum.  It contains lots of great tips on avoiding gluten and places where it could hide.  Cross contamination (like sharing a toaster) are big issues for us.  

The good news is that your health is going to improve!  

Be sure to have your thyroid checked every six weeks to see how the medication is being absorbed.  It takes that long for the body to adjust thyroid medication (replacement).  Your thyroid could even improve on the gluten free diet.  Let's hope!

Thank you! It's all a little overwhelming but I'm also hoping for improvements. :)
