Celia the Celiac

Change Of Lifestyle

Recommended Posts

This is my first time on. I found out I had Celiac a year ago but started taking my illness seriously these past two months. I've probably had it all my life. About four years ago, I had vertical banded gastroplasty and lost 172 pounds. After my drastic weight loss, problems came about. One being a serious digestive problem. Test resulted in Celiac. Now I have a stapled and banded stomache along with Celiac. It's very troubling because most of my day is spent trying to get in "food of worth" along with water just to stay hydrated. I love working out at the gym but this malnutrition thing has really put a damper on that. I stay weak alot and faint sometimes. I do now take coral calcium, liquid gluten free multivitamins and drink and green drink with organic fruits and vegetables (yuck!) so that's really helps.

How long does it take to heal? I haven't really seen any change yet. Some people get that automatic 190 degree turn but it's different with me for some reason.

There's no single answer to how long it takes. It could be a few weeks, or a few months, or a year or two. It really depends on your body. Making sure to get plenty of nutrient dense food will be even more important for you - no white rice, brown or wild, things like that. Make sure you *do* eat enough fat. I'm not saying lots and lots, I'm saying don't avoid it like the plague. It carries essential vitamins as well, and is needed for proper absorbtion.
