    • A quick perusal of Dr. Brownstein's website outs him quite quickly as a purveyor of pseudoscience. Though he may be an MD, he appears to have abandoned evidence in favour of selling stuff people don't need by making them afraid, using his authority as a doctor. Like all such individuals, what he says has some basis of truth (eg. hypothyroid disorders are quite common, the average North American has a terrible diet), but he twists it to create fear and take advantage of those who are less scientifically literate. Conspiracy theories abound to be found at: http://www.drbrownstein.com/dr-bs-blog/ Here is a criticism of his work: https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/does-your-antivax-doctor-have-another-agenda/
    • Almost 2 years into my diagnosis after losing about 35-40 pounds I have now added about 60 with clean gluten free eating. I also changed jobs which for me has been much more of a physical change, thus needing more calories I have finally been able to put back some pounds. It is possible, for me the clean diet which helped restore my guts let me finally start absorbing the nutrients I was lacking. 
    • Hi Niza, Try to eat lots of protein.  Meats, peanut butter, avocadoes, things like that.  Try to avoid processed (pre-made) foods like frozen pizza, cereals, pot pies, cookies etc.   There gluten-free versions of many of these foods, but they are best saved for later on like 6 months after going gluten-free. If you are just starting out gluten-free, eat a simple diet of mostly foods you make yourself at home.  Also, try not eat eating any dairy (milk, cheese etc) for a couple months.  Oats are also a thing to avoid eating for a couple months.  You may not have any problem with dairy or oats, but some people do. Welcome to the forum Niza!
    • I am. I went undiagnosed for years and years and I honestly thought I was dying. I had been trying to gain weight even before my diagnosis and could barely gain a thing. I am so relieved to actually have an answer as to WHY! I was just diagnosed last weekend so I still have a lot of internal healing to do after years of villus atrophy. I have been drastically underweight for some time now, although I am slowly gaining. I am currently eating around 2,500 calories a day and not doing any strenuous exercise. I am only 74 lb (at 5'2") and I started out at 67 back in the beginning of December. I eat as much as some of my guy friends eat in order to "bulk" when they are lifting heavy at the gym and yet I still seem to gain at a slower rate. Just goes to show how messed up your intestines can become after years of abuse. 
    • Hey Deb, In theory (based on some studies), your small instestine should heal pretty fast (within weeks), but often there is collateral damage that can take longer (like your bone pain).  For me, personally, a gluten exposure can set me back three to six months.  My antibodies can last over a year.  And worse, I now developed autoimmune gastritis and hives.  Yikes!   I had  some hip and rib cage pain when I was first diagnosed.  Two months later I fractured some vertebrae.  I had been undiagnosed for so long, that I developed osteoporosis.  I assume that once on a gluten free diet, your pain should diminish based on a strict adherence to the diet and  your previous experience.   I hope you feel better soon!
