    • Welcome!   Sorry to hear that you had been gluten free when you were tested for celiac disease.  The only way to get an official diagnosis is to do a gluten challenge under a doctor's care: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ As far as recovering from a glutening?  Everyone is different.  It can take a week or months to recover.  There is no speedy way...rest, stay hydrated....  
    • 🤗.  Okay.....but what is the cause for the low ferritin?  A glutening?  When was the last time you had a celiac antibodies test or do you use DH flare-ups as a gauge?  
    • Ok... drum roll.... Cyclinglady wins! I am just anemic - ferritin is quite bad (10ng/mL), but hemoglobin still intact. Didn't get a look at the full results (Canada problems - doctors only give you the full print-off if you harass them for it), but everything else was apparently ok. I'll be downloading the full results for my file tomorrow from the lab. Not too worried about this, as I've been much more anemic in the past and managed to recover pretty quickly via supplementation. I'll be back for a second blood test in 6 weeks to check it's worked. So while this certainly answers the question of why I've been feeling so crappy for the last few months, the iodine thing still remains a bit of a mystery. I have been avoiding large hits of iodine for about a week and will probably keep at it for a few more to see what (if anything) happens. But for now... more steak and liver haha.
