When Do Symptoms Subside?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I'm a newbie, diagnosed in May with celiac disease after the blood tests and biopsy. My diagnosis came after 4 years of lots of issues (which I'm sure you hear all the time) but what finally got me to demand an answer was the horrific reflux and vomiting I started to experience about 6 months ago. Last month during a doctor visit he told me that once I go gluten-free my symptoms should subside pretty drastically within a month. Well, I spent the morning puking and running to the bathroom. I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance that it will, indeed, get better eventually.

Are you getting gluten from anywhere non-food? Medicines, cosmetics, old pans or cutting boards? Gluten is insidious and can hide anywhere, for a long time.

Brand-new here too. I discovered that along with gluten, I was also intolerant to soy (at least for the time being anyway). I'd definitely double-check for the gluten, but keep in mind there may be another intolerance or two that's bugging you.

Hope your tummy gets happy as quickly as possible!

I was in pain and had issues for almost a year. It wasn't until I gave up corn and soy that I had a pain free day. Gluten can be everywhere in a shared household. I was CC myself in the beginning a lot. You need your own toaster and strainer, cutting board etc. It's a lot to wrapped your mind around in the beginning, but with time, it does get better! Read and read here you will learn a lot to help you. Keep a food diary also to help you figure out if other foods bother you. Everyone is different, it depends on how much damage you have. It will get better!!! It takes time, be patient with yourself and know you're learning how to be gluten-free. Right now I would focus on any CC in your home. Make sure your food is on a top shelf. Baggies to hold food in fridge is good. Seperate condiments etc. Probiotics and vitamins as well! Hang in there!!

I've been gluten-free for 2 1/2 weeks. I'm glad you asked the question. I still feel pretty lousy and wasn't given any sort of time frame to feel better. I felt awful after eating last night and wondered if it was normal.

I'd like to add...yesterday my son grabbed the can opener to open his spaghettios. He asked if I had gotten a seperate can opener for myself..and I hadn't thought of that! Be sure you have seperate everything.

It could be cc or another food allergy or intolerence. I had to stop dairy cause of the lactose.
