It does vary greatly from person to person. With some, a period of D can actually start after going gluten-free, so I suppose it's possible you may be experiencing this too. Perhaps the body is trying to clear itself out.

Also, do be sure you have eliminated all gluten, not just in foods, but skin and hair care products, soaps, laundry detergents, etc. And, many find it necessary to avoid dairy as well, so you might try that, and reintroduce it when you feel ready.

Give it some more time, like maybe two or three weeks. I think I've seen some posts about D lasting for months, though that's hopefully the exception and not the rule.

As RiceGuy wrote many celiacs just grin and bear it until their gut heals enough so you don't have this problem as much. But there are quite a few inexpensive herbal treatments that your can use to help the healing along and control your problem. There are some online sites that have some explainations and remedies for you. Cure Zone and The Dr. Clark Information Center are two.

Imodium can help with the diarrhea and a very bland diet, but there is no magic potion.
