Hi Paul, you don't say how old you are but generally a rule of thumb is the older you are when diagnosed with celiac disease the longer it takes to heal. Children usually bounce right back once gluten-free.

Of course everyone is different.

My husband was 40 yrs old when diagnosed and it took a good 6 months or more before he felt any benefit. He also suffered with reflux and used to get a terrible sore throat. That too gradually lessened.

You are on the right track!! - keep plugging away - you will get there!! :)
