Hi guys,

I am still waiting for the results of my blood test (hopefully tomorrow) so I am still eating as per always. I couldn't agree with you more about the brain fog. That and the feeling of total fatigue (ALL THE TIME) have been crippling for me for more than 15 years and I was getting sick of seeing my doctor becasue I was beginning to feel like I was the problem..... Anyway my wife heard a story on the radio about celiacs and couldn't believe what she was hearing as the lady was discussing all the same symptons that I have been living with all these years. WELL, hopefully I am about to discover that I am a celiac and that some I will be on the mend.

Once I change my diet to eliminate gluton, can you give me an idea on time frames for feeling better? Thanks so much for listening.

Ta from the land down under.....(Australia)

Hi there!

much luck with the results. as far as feeling better, my digestive symptoms went away within a couple of weeks of going gluten free. the fatigue and fog took longer... i really only got my energy back around 3 months or so later. and then everything i ate made me incredibly bloated (sorry) and i didn't feel good in general. i then heard we are supposed to treat our stomachs like babies' in order to give them a chance to heal up, so i cut out lactose for a little bit and also cut way back on very fibrous fruits and veggies. i still take Lactaid but i have been adding in all the fruits and vegetables i want for a month or so. now i'd say i'm back to feeling 100%! hope you feel better soon.

Some people get better right away and for others it is much longer. For me it was around three months before I could say I was really getting better and about a year to say I felt healthy. It has been almost two years now and I can really say I am truly healthy. Don't try to rush and give it time.
