Hi James,

It could take a couple weeks, or it could take years.  It depends on  how well you do at avoiding gluten (wheat, rye and barley) in your diet.  Some of us also have to avoid oats.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition and flares up when even a tiny amount of gluten is ingested.  And the immune response can keep going for weeks to months.  So set backs can be somewhat expected during the first 6 months of getting used to the gluten-free diet.

Other foods you should avoid for several months are dairy and processed foods of any kind.  It's better and safer to make your own foods at home and not eat at restaurants.

Concentrate your diet on meats, veggies, eggs, nuts and fruit.  There are gluten-free breads available but they may not agree with you for a few months.  It takes some time for the gut villi to recover and the GI system to get back in good working order.

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
