They say children heal the fastest and adults can take 6 months to 2 years to fully heal.

It takes a while.

Hi,

it's wonderful that you've started seeing improvement. I've heard that you will start seeing results between 2 - 4 months, but like mentioned above it's going to take a lot longer for your body to build up it's vitamin and mineral stores again and for your body to heal and work effectively.

It'll be worth it!

All the best!

Thank you very much!! sometimes I feel that gluten is creeping into my diet!! I try very hard to be gluten free, although I have small children, and I handle bread on a regular basis. I try to sanitize but sometimes I feel it is not enough,

I hope you get resultsd quickly.

I guess I am lucky, or maybe it is not celiac disease. I had experienced 6 different kinds of pains in my intestines and nausea. They went away immediately. I was shocked. I expected maybe two weeks or 2-3 years as I read somewhere for complete healing.

I had food sensitivities before, beef and eggs, and after the waiting period of a week or so the only change was the 1 1/2 years of diahreah quit cold turkey. I noticed no other changes.

Eliminating wheat has changed a lot of things, dry eye-very painful is almost gone and nose stopped running. Also rice does not bother me now, it was a problem before.

I hope this is not celiac, would be nice to have a piece of wedding cake or something good in a restaurant.

First, let me start by saying I am so thrilled to have found this forum. I am about as newbie as they come. I started eating gluten-free on Tuesday so I've only been on the diet a few days. I already feel better but yesterday I started having symptoms again. My question is, is this normal or have I glutened myself? I felt so great for the first couple of days. It was really frustrating to suddenly have a pounding headache and stomach pains again. Should I not have these symptoms anymore?

At this point it is hard to know if you have been glutened. It IS normal to have ups and downs, our good days and bad days, when we first start the diet. Or you could have gotten some cross-contamination somewhere, which is easy to do - especially if you haven't had much experience at avoiding gluten :) Hope you are feeling better soon.

Maybe you got some cross contamination...I am feeling pretty crappy for the last couple of days, all my symptoms are back..I got sick from taking a multivitamin that claimed it was gluten free..I have been paying for it...when I get glutened it takes me a good week to recover. Is that normal? does anyone else take that long...I feel like I have no energy to move. I have 3 small children and find that I am dragging my butt around... I just want to feel better!!

Thanks Mushroom and Chili! I appreciate the words of wisdom. I am starting to wonder if my medication is making me sick. I've been on Synthroid for about 7 years now and I just ran across a website last night that said it could contain gluten. I tend to feel worse at night which leads me to believe that it may be something I am taking regularly (I take Synthroid every morning). I am going to talk to my doctor about switching to the generic that is gluten-free.

Thanks again!

gfreecarboholic,

I'm new to this forum too! I found out that I was celiac back in Nov 2010, at first it was difficult but now its getting easier. They say it takes awhile to heal. I was sick for a year before I found out, so I'm wondering if it will take another year to be back to normal, if theres such a thing anymore. I wish I would've joined sooner. Good luck and I hope you find your answers!

I'm almost at the one year gluten-free point. I feel so much better than before, but not up to the level I used to be.

I've been to multiple specialists and they've all run oodles of blood tests. Based on what I'd read on this forum, I recently requested that my endocrinoligist check my Vitamin D level. It's really low, even though I live in the sub-tropics and don't use sunscreen. (I also asked for a B-12 and Iron, those were normal, but other forum members have had results below the normal range.)

The specialist copped an attitude with me about asking for blood tests but I was insistent. She told me being soy intolerant could just be in my mind. When I told my boyfriend about that, he said, "Don't you wish you could just wiggle your finger at her to give her diarreah? You could ask her if that was in her mind or in her PANTS?"

I guess I'm keeping the dear Irish BF, thinking about ditching the doctor. (Her office hasn't called me about my blood tests, I only learned about them because I picked up a copy of them up myself today. They were drawn on 3/15/11.

My advice is to read (especially from this forum), search symptoms, and become a pitt bull in your doctor's office visits. Hope that helps, and hope you feel better soon!
