  1. I've been gluten free for bout a month now and I am eating dairy. Ive seen that lots of people starting out on the gluten-free diet also cut dairy from their diet as well as gluten because the villi can't absorb the dairy in the damaged state they are in. So if I continue to eat dairy does it hurt my villi or what other harmful effects could it cause? The only thing I think I have from it is a little gas.
  2. I was wondering if UNTREATED celiac disease can prevent cancer. I know this might sound stupid but bear with me. So here is my train of thought. If celiac disease is left untreated then the villi dont heal. If they dont heal then the body cannot grow and get nutrients. So if like a mole for ex. becomes cancerous it can not grow and spread because of the lack of nutrients. So maybe untreated celiac disease can maybe at least slow down cancer. I know this is really retarted but just tell me why this is not possible if its not or ur opinion.
  3. Thanks everyone for answering, I kinda knew the answer to that but I just wanted to see what everyone else said. I am not planning to eat tiny crumbs lol I just wanted to know the effects of an accidental crumb being ingested.
  4. I was wondering if a little crumb glutens me will it be not as bad as like a whole piece of bread or is it just as bad?
  5. Yea, thanks for answering, I am getting better and better at this gluten-free diet
  6. thanks alot, I understand better now, I am still trying to find the cause of this glutening
  7. thanks for the info, i think u are right despite me being diagnosed earlier lol, and good luck on your gluten-free diet (:
  8. I am 15 and was diagnosed with celiac disease about a month ago and have been gluten free for about 3 weeks until now when i ingested some gluten. I know cuz I started having really bad gas. So my question is everytime i get glutened is it like COMPLETELY starting over with the diet and completely destroy my villi or does it only hurt my progress moderately?
  9. Well props to you for overcoming so many challenges. If u can cut all that from ur diet i should be able to atleast cut out gluten lol.
  10. i have not had my had my vitamin and mineral levels tested, but i did have an endoscopy, the biopsys showed that my villi were damaged but still not totally flat and i had inflammation as well. But before that i had two blood tests the first one being 90 and the second one 64 so idk why the second one was better than the first. And just curious how have you cut soy, gluten AND dairy from ur diet, that seems impossible to me, im just speechless, and i thought i had it bad with type 1 diabetes and celiac disease, but i reallly shouldnt be complaining lol
