How long does it usually take for the diet to kick in...and to see a major improvement with every symptom?...and how do you control the gas? :(:ph34r::o *farts painfully* ... and by me being 19 does that rank me as an adult or kid in speaking of the problem?

Mr. Mackey:

The gas lasts a while for me. Weeks, sometimes longer. Sometimes I do a liquid diet for several days. That helps a little. The longer I am able to tolerate a liquid diet the better I feel but it still does not eliminate the gas.

Make sure EVERYTHING is gluten-free. Even shampoo and hair products. I make my husband feed the dog to avoid the gluten there. I have done that for 2 years. Recently dog sat for a neighbor, and even with really great hand washing, I got glutened. I guess I am more sensitive than I even want to admit!

Good luck. The whole thing gets better with time. And by the way I would see any doctor that understood Celiac Disease, adult or childrens.

I second what Debbie said. I've been gluten-free for almost six months and I'm STILL finding hidden gluten in the most random places. There's definately a learning curve that goes along with being gluten-free, and it will take you some time.

For me, the first week was like...I don't know. Amazing! :rolleyes: I couldn't belive how wonderful I felt. Then the honeymoon was over and my body readjusted to not having massive amounts of constant gluten. One thing's for sure: I may not feel 100% yet, but I feel a 100x better than I did a year ago.

Good luck, hang in there, and feel free to ask questions or vent here on the board. That's what we're here for!

Gluten-free since July 8, 2006

Casein-free since October 16, 2006

Went six weeks, and fell back into a deliciously painful world of cheese.

Casein-free (again and for serious this time) December 11, 2006

Stupid cheese addiction....2/07

Dx Hypothyroid in 1993

Dx Gluten & Casein Sensitive through Enterolab 10/06

Dx Adrenal *Exhaustion* 2/07

Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.
