  1. Hi guys, So I've been 'in recovery' for about 2 years and I feel great. My only problem is that if I get less than 9 hours of sleep I am really tired the next day. Is this normal or am I having celiac related issues that I should do something about? Thanks so much!
  2. THANK YOU!!! your replies gave me a great sense of what to explore next, and empowerment over the gluten demon. I got a probiotic and multi to start. Exercise does help, but when I'm tired it's just fighting through the fatigue and tired after. Good for the mind, doesn't feel good for the body. I mention blood sugar because I often get really tired directly after eating, and when I haven't eaten in a while. Per your suggestions I will get an allergy panel done, but I was wondering if anyone has experienced the same thing. 1) Anyone experience the same type of fatigue? 2) I eat a lot of gluten-free granola and oats, does anyone have problems with these? 3) I heard vitamins are no good if they turn your pee colors, am I not absorbing my multi then?
  3. Hey fellow Celiacs, first off thanks for the sense of support and knowledge you all offer. this forum is a wealth of knowledge. I'm a 23 year old male and was diagnosed almost 3 months ago. I've been really good the past 2 months with ingredients and CC, and have seen improvements in my energy levels. I do however, still have times where I'm exhausted, unmotivated and hence pessimistic. These bouts are between a couple hours and a couple days, and are particularly frustrating because I work with people in the wilderness 8 days in a row (energy needed!). Also, I'm frequently tired just after eating, even when I'm positive it's all gluten-free. Some mornings I'm ready to rock, sometimes I don't leave to house. What's the deal!? My question is where to go from here. Reading the forums has left me confused as to what to pursue next. Should I pursue: 1) Vitamins? I'm taking omega 3 fish oil and vit D daily, last checked my D levels were deficient but B were OK. Should I take magnesium or multis? 2) Do I just need to give it more time? 3) Do I have blood sugar issues? Often getting tired right after eating is weird to me, and I feel like my energy is variable throughout the days and weeks. 4) What should I do when I get into a low energy funk? I try to eat nutritious foods, but otherwise I just get discouraged. 5) Should I get tested for anything else? 6) Doctor vs Nutritionist? Either? Neither? Both? Thank you thank you thank you for sharing your knowledge with me.
