 My husband was diagnosed with celiac the beginning of this week .  His doctor said to go gluten-free and he will be fine well the more research I have done the more I have found that is not the case that he has to heal his gut first before actually getting any better.   What do we do ?   Does he need probiotics does he need more vitamins than he's already taking ?  Maybe nutrients ? I don't completely understand is there a book I should buy any classes to go to or other website ?? Thank you

Hi :)

theres a lot of useful info in this thread:

including some good recommendations for books which go into more detail.

has your husbands doctors tested his vitamin, iron levels etc? There's a chance he hasn't been absorbing them well due to the celiac.

The University of Chicago's celiac website is a great resource to browse.  You can learn a lot there like recommendations for follow-up testing:

Most of all, be patient!  Recovery times vary, but many do feel better within a few weeks or months.  The learning curve for the gluten-free is steep, so expect some set-backs.
