How Long Until The Body Is Healed?

Recommended Posts

How long after being gluten free will it take for nutrient stores to be back to normal? I am sure it's different for everyone but does anyone know a timeline?


~Ill for 5 years with progressive symptoms: anxiety, brain fog, joint pain, "D", and the noisiest stomach you've ever heard, and a lovely itchy rash on my buttocks, scalp, and sometimes thighs. ~ Family history of Celiac disease (Uncle, cousins, grandmother) ~ Blood work showed some antibodies but not enough to be dx celiac ~ Dq7 & Dq4. ~ I can't call myself Celiac but I know gluten is bad for my body.

There are alot of factors here, like age at diagnosis, how long were you undiagnosed etc...etc but it's said it can take an adult 'up to' 2 yrs to fully heal (of course some heal before that timeline) :)
