Hi everyone,

I've been gluten-free for about 3 days and I was just wondering if it gets worse before it gets better. I've had more stomach pain these few days and have been a little more nauseous than usual...definitely more tired although that may have to do with something else, who knows.

Thanks guys. Hope you're all doing great.

That is a difficult question to answer. Three days is a very short time to see improvements. It took me several months before I felt that I could safely venture out about town, and I live in a very small town. I don't recall you mode of diagnosis, but it took some time for most damage to occure and it will equally take time for healing to begin.

During this time, make sure that you are checking your toiletries as in cosmetics, shampoos, lipstick or lip balm. Gluten can hide everywhere from your Teflon pans, wooden spoons, old toasters, previously used bread machines, pots and pans not thoroughly cleaned, medications, vitamins.

Stick to a simple diet of meats, fish, fresh veggies, fruits, rice and potatos and processed foods until you have the ability to read labels.

This too will pass with dilegence and you will find yourself on the road to recovery. I do hope you feel better soon. I DO remember.
