Symptoms After Going Gluten Free

Recommended Posts

Hi,

i wondered if anyone could help me, ive been on a gluten free diet since the end of january now. ive noticed some changes im feeling alot more enegetic and im actually experiencing the feeling of hunger!! which i havent had for months! im also putting on weight, i had been told i was quite under weight so i guess its a good thing. i also havent had periods for over a year which im thinking could be related? just recently ive broken out in lots of spots and my eyes are extremly puffy could this mean that my body is starting to heal? and get the nutrients it needs or is that a bit early?

also im being reffered to hospital for tests for celiac but i have been gluten free for couple of months so would that mean the test would come back negative?

hope ive made sense! would be really gratefull for your advise thankyou all!

hollyxx

Holly if your already gluten free that will impact the tests and they are not all that reliable anyway. The fact that you are feeling better is really a good indication that the diet is needed. Have you eliminated gluten from your toiletries and cosmetics and other sources of CC? Once our bodies are starting to heal even tiny amounts can set off the antibody reaction, this is a good thing and our bodies way fo telling us how toxic it is. It can be hard at first to ferret out all the potential gluten sources and it takes time for the body to heal. The spots (do they itch?) and the puffy eyes could be an indication that there is gluten in your eye makeup or lotions etc. and your body is letting you know it sneaked in. Be sure to check all your OTC meds and scripts also, something doctors don't always think to tell us.
