Hello,

I've just been diagnosed with celiac.  I have gone gluten free, but am wondering what protocol to use to heal the damage to my gut?  Any suggestions on what might work.

 

Thank you!

You can supplement if you want to.  IF you are low on iron or vitamin D - then some vitamins might be helpful.  

The treatment for Celiac disease is a strict gluten free diet.  Some people need to cut out lactose for a few months, too.  The villi that are damaged in Celiac are the part that helps you digest lactose.  So, until they are healed, it might help to skip milk , cream, etc.

Hi and welcome :)

Gluten bread etc is fortified with b vitamins, iron etc. So if you take that out of the diet you may want to replace, ideally with foods but supplements can help.

I also take Vit D (we dont see much sunshine here in the UK) and magnesium, zinc and calcium which seems to really help me mentally. 

For healing the gut you may want to check out paleo sites for info on making bone broth. Also consider probiotics and this page has some foods to try and incorporate:

Good luck!

I know many need magnesium and the full spectrum of b-vitamins niacin, iron, D, C and folate can be others. IF your asking for a targeted celiac vitamins/shake Pioneer Labs specializes in a celiac shake and vitamins. Personally I use Liquid Health for most of mine as I like the liquid in a drink concept over adding more to the handfuls of pills I take. The Stress & Energy and Neurological Support 1 tbsp each 3 times a day does me great, and I use their vitamin D as I need it. All sublingual liquids, I also rotate between Doctores Best Magnesium and Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium and dose to tolerance. I take other stuff but for other issues, IE I take Marshmallow and Slippery elm for my Ulcerative Colitis, I take vitamin C since I can personally not eat fruit, I take a collagen and joint supplement since I can not consume meats, Pancreatic enzymes since I have issues with enzyme production, but again these are all just things I take to fix other issues.

Eat whole food as much as possible and get a sublingual vitamin d supplement. Life extension and superior source are excellent. If you are anemic, red meat is your friend. Basically, even though it's easier to transition by purchasing all the processed gluten free packaged foods, you need whole foods to heal. I eat a lot of meat, veggies, and butter, and my hair and nails came back within 6 or 7 months. You also might find you have additional food intolerances over time. Over all, whole foods, natural ingredients, and listen to your body.

I recommend getting labs drawn to know the various vitamin and mineral levels before you start supplementing. Eat gluten free food that agrees with you, initially. The advice to eat veggies and fruit and whole foods is of course good, but you also have to know what works for you and your stomach in general.

Ask -- how damaged is my gut? Did you have an endoscopy with biopsy?

I know my gut is very damaged. Other test results show severe SUBI and severe Candida. I have tons of food sensitivities. My diet had been whole food for a coupkevyeRs now. No dairy, grains, soy or processed whatso dver

If you have been grain free for a long time, you were lucky to get a positive in the celiac panel.  Gluten must have been in your diet all along.  Be sure to check all labels.  

You might consider getting an endoscopy or a pill camera.    I recently had a follow-up endoscopy.  My celiac antibodies were elevated and I was on a pretty strict gluten-free diet.  I was experiencing GI symptoms.  Discovered that my intestines were healed.  Had gastritis instead most likely from my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.  No H.Pylori, SIBO, etc.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn’s using the pill camera after all other tests were negative.  

It helped to really verify the condition of my small intestine as my blood tests were misleading.
