When should I see an improvement in my leg and ankle swelling? I have been gluten free for 2 weeks now.

Thanks

Ankle and leg swelling can be signs of heart disease. Please go see your regular dr and be checked out. I do not think this can be related to Celiacs.

I would also recommend seeing a doctor - to rule out any heart problems BUT I have to add my hubby had very swollen legs/ankles/feet prior to going gluten-free - which disappeared (in answer to the original question) a couple of months into the gluten-free diet. :)

if you know for sure it's not heart disease and is related to your diet then probably within a few weeks depending on how sick you were prior to diagnosis. my old co-workers feet and ankles used to swell up to the size of balloons when she ate something she was allergic too (if i remember correctly her biggest allergy was corn). i used to laugh at her (she was very light hearted about her condition). little did i know three years later i'd be right in the same boat (minus the swelling).

Hi Everyone,

I am due to see my doctor on Tuesday. I will ask her about it then. I have done some reading that does say swelling is common with food allergies.
