Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Since you're going on the assumption you might be a celiac, recovery all depends on age, the severity of damage to your intestines, and how well you follow the diet. Younger people recover more quickly than older. I was dx 08-08, and I'm still recovering. I had severe blunting of the villi. I've improved to mild blunting. It can take anywhere from 1-2 years to recover.
I also wake up feeling better than when I go to bed. I also found I have problems digesting fats/proteins. Are you often constipated? Are you on a proton pump inhibitor (PPI)? If not, you might want to try the OTC Prilosec and see if that helps you. I was up to as much as 80 mg and have reduced it to 40 mg. I feel worse at night because I've been eating all day, and my intestines move the food out slowly, I think...particularly the small intestines. I seem to have the most problems with protein...particularly meat.
Hope that helps. Good luck!
Thank you, I really appreciate your reply.
I am aware that everyones recovery time will vary, I'm just looking for some personal stories.
