Newly diagnosed seeking advice

Hi guys, 

I was diagnosed with celiac 4 days ago after months of quite severe symptoms. After 4 days of following a gluten free diet I have noticed dramatic improvement. 
 

however tonight I vomited again , I have ingested zero gluten however I did drink a bottle of apple cider so I’m wondering if it could be alcohol related ? I was also diagnosed with malabsorption and am currently treating that through vit b12 and iron pills.

I will add that celiac disease is autoimmune.  That means gluten is the trigger that sets off a flare up (those with IBD, lupus or Rheumatoid Arthritis never really know what triggers their immune system).    Antibodies can take time to ramp up.  So, just because gluten is physically no longer lingering in your gut, does not mean your immune system has turned off (remission).    It takes time.  Most celiacs report needing a year to feel good.  Expect some set backs, but stay the course.  You can heal!  

Alcohol?  Avoid it until your gut is not so damaged and raw.   Give it a few weeks and then experiment.
