Still Losing Weight

Recommended Posts

I've been trying so hard to stay gluten (and corn) free and have been mostly successful over the past few weeks, but I'm still losing weight. I understand that it can take a while, but I'm eating as much as I can and still the scale goes backwards. I have a few of questions:

1. How much of a setback does an accidental glutening cause? Do the villi go completely flat again immediately or does it take time and sustained glutening before you redamage them as severely as you did before you knew what was happening?

2. Is there and drug or herb that will speed up the villi healing process?

3. Is it easier for flattened villi to extract nutrients from liquids or solids, or does it not make a difference? Any specific foods whose nutrients are easier for sick villi to absorb?

Thank you,

Richard

I don't have answers for you (I'm new too.) But I think if you're having these issues you may need the support of a dietician. Certainly your doctor should want/need to help you so you don't become (more) malnorished.

I still have the opposite problem (overweight) but wonder if I'm malnorished, too. Talking to my doctor next Tuesday. Strange paradox.

Good luck!
