You probably had a lot of stored energy and you were rested. The second time around may be a little more laborous. But I rejoice in your report. Seems like your body has experienced healing.

I know this is a couple weeks old, but I just saw this.

How exciting!!! I loved getting my body back after going gluten free. Right now, I'm right smack dab in the middle of dealing with a thrown out back (structural, not gluten). I can't WAIT to get back to being able to be active again.

I love hearing about others who have gotten their mobility, and/or endurance, and/or energy back, via going gluten-free. Nobody truly understands unless they've been through it.

I'm excited for you. I hope you're doing as well now as you were. Don't push yourself too hard or you'll end up in physical therapy like me. :rolleyes: Slow and steady wins the race, and all that...

Cheers!

Nancy

thanx guys,your right that nobody understands how you struggle gluten-free and getting back to your level of fitness as b4, there was a lady at the gym and i could allways go faster and longer than her and i think it miffed her ( im not perticulary competitive) when the gluten-free hit i struggled and the lady beat me on the treadmill, to say i was cross was an understaement!!!!!!! the lady was rejoicing in her run ( and her victory) so i didnt have the heart to tell her i was ill and it would have sounded sour grapes as well. when i did my run she was there on the other treadmill with me so when i beat her i just smiled. may be im more competative than ide like to admit. the second run you were right about and was disastrous and im sooo glad she want at the gym that day. ive bought a treadmill for the house now so the days i dont feel good i can take it slow and i dont push myself too hard in trying to prove things to other people, your right i dont want an injury!!! thanx for replying. x

    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,
