Since Folic Acid and B vitamins nearly did me in (prior to the Celiac diagnosis) I thought this would be good info. The hardest thing for me to realize when I was diagnosed was how I could be deficient in these nutrients when I took supplements but if you can't absorb them, it does no good. Thankfully, it didn't take me long to heal up after I went gluten-free.

Thanks for the article, very timely for me. Regular blood panels show everything is okay, but I did a spectracell ananysis a couple weeks ago. The doc called with the results yesterday, "No wonder you feel bad" I am unable to metabolize B-12, C, E, and selenium. I begin injections today. I hope this works because the pain and the mental deterioration is both scary and exhausting.

    Chances are if you have lumps on your body for years and the Dr. isn't concerned they're probably not lymph nodes. Chronically swollen lymph nodes would be something every Dr. would be concerned with.  Chances are you just have cysts ...
    It's different  for everyone, it can be a month or maybe a year. Most probably within a few months. This is assuming the symptoms are in fact related to gluten, which they may not be. 
    Hi Laura I'm so pleased you found answers.  This is very encouraging.  Seven years on from my own diagnosis I wish I could have some vitamin and mineral screening, I'm sure I'm still deficient. Cristiana
