15 Days gluten-free

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am feeling a lot better some days, that's better than bad very day!

Still a lot of gas and bloating.

I have 4 of the 7 symptons of classic celaic. I will contine this lifestyle. Giving up some food for feeling much better, yes I can do this.

I hope and trust some day I will say been gluten-free for 3-4 months and have never felt better.

I've been dealing with Celiac for years. It takes time for the intestines to repair themselves after an episode. Be patient. You'll have set backs, but it definitely gets better.

Well done Sammy :) It can take a while to heal, but you're already seeing improvements so you must be on the right track! I think the hardest part was starting the diet, staying on it once you've got the hang of it is easy in comparison. Most people don't even try, and suffer with their symptoms rather than trying out the diet.

Also - I found that I was getting better every month - soon my "bad" days on the Gluten-free diet was equal to my "Good" days when I was in so much pain eating gluten.

All the best, hope all your symptoms get better soon.

I hear ya Sammy,

Im going on my 15th day as well. Im finding that the diet is not all that difficult, the problem I am having is getting discouraged with the results. Similar to you I still have a lot of gas, and some bloating. The headaches are what really bring me down. They are nowhere as severe as they were when I found out but I was hoping that they would be gone by now. They are getting better and I will hang in there, I just wished they were gone for good already. I want to hit the gym, excersise etc, but its hard to do when your head hurts and you get dizzy all the time.

I just reached a month gluten-free, and it actually snuck up on me, I lost count!

I found it was pretty easy once I made the promise to myself to just do it.

It definitely helps to find food you LOVE, that you know is safe.

I'm eating a lot of smoked salmon with rice and a salad with olive oil and red wine vinegar, food I already really loved but now I have a reason to cook a huge vat of rice and keep it in the fridge. I'm eating fresh fruits and veggies at every meal. I found a few gluten free products, like some delicious cookies, for when I start to feel a little sad about the diet limitations. My withdrawal symptoms were a good 2 weeks, but the storm is clear and it's all better from here.

Good luck, it's nice to know how many people are learning the same things at the same time. I hope you both continue to show improvement :)

It's been a little over two months for me, and although I didn't have much in the way of digestive symptoms, my general overall health has improved, the "unusual symptoms", like insomnia and brain fog are gone, and my psoriasis is COMPLETELY HEALED. I'm also losing weight, and, wonder of wonders, I'm learning to COOK!!

I feel so good I could run a race. I feel like celebrating every day, so I do, in my own quiet way. I'm driving my friends crazy. They used to hear me complain that I was tired and I must be getting old. Now all they hear is, "I feel so GOOD!"

So, give it time. Consider yourself lucky that you have digestive symptoms so you will know when you've been glutened. (The only way I can tell is several days later when my hands start breaking out.) And trust that the longer you stick to your diet, the better EVERYTHING will get.
