Hi there, I do not have celiac but am trying a gluten-free diet to see if it alleviates any of my symptoms. I Know that with celiac, it can take months on a gluten-free diet to really see/feel any change, but was told that if it is only a sensitivity, that you should feel results rather quickly (within days). This was per my dr (MD). Can anyone share their experience with Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and time to feeling better on a gluten-free diet? Thanks!

I have Celiac and I asked my doctor this question he did not have an answer.  It took me 4 1/2 weeks to feel better. I had a food diary I wrote everything I ate down and how I felt every day all day.  You just have to keep at it, but Gluten my not be your problem. I hope you feel better soon.

Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

A noticeable improvement within 3 days for me. Many more improvements over longer term.

Thank you. Personally, I don't feel it is my issue...but wanted to do a gluten-free trial just to rule that out.

Suggest you keep a diary logging how you feel, what you eat and what time. If changes are gradual it can be hard to notice but looking back over the diary entries can give you an insight into just how you were feeling as your diet changed.
