It could be your metabolism is fast so it requires you to then have more calories.

Also could there be gluten slipping in through any shampoos or lotions, etc? Try to go through and see if any products or foods could be slipping in. Hope you find it out soon :D

I weigh less than I used to before getting sick with celiac disease. I also eat tons of food and never gain a pound. (Although I have always been that way). It's kind of weird I guess. Maybe Vote4PresBush04 idea is right in that we may have high metabolisms. I'd also check all your products for hidden gluten just in case ;)

I agree have your products checked. If you are not eating anything with gluten maybe a product of yours is giving you trouble.

I have a fast metabolism. I can eat and eat and not put on much weight. It just means we have to eat more. I eat about 500-700 more calories than I would normally eat and I've been able to gain weight. I finally am up to what I was before I got sick. Try eating high calorie foods and if your not gaining weight eat more. If you still can't gain weight my guess would be maybe some gluten might be slipping into your system. Keep me updated Lisa and I'll talk to you soon :D

I have the same problem as alot of you. I wrote in another post. I was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue when I was about 3. That would have been about 1971. I don't ever remember them telling me it was Celiac disease though. They just always called it Malabsorbtion. From what my parents tell me, I was starving to death and they didn't know why. Anyway, I've been thin all of my life and always trying to gain weight. Nothing really works that I can find. I try to stay as gluten-free as possible, but should probably keep a better eye on it. I travel alot and it's hard to stay completely gluten-free on the road. I am taking a vaction for the next several months because of some family problems and I'm going to really try to watch my diet and other things that I may come in contact with and see if this makes any difference. By the way, what is Graves disease? Thanks.

    • Consider Graves Disease.  My mother struggled with it.  She did not have all the classic symptoms of Graves, but she did end up with permanent eye damage (she sees double).  My cousin had it even more severe.  Besides eye muscle pain, she had the classic eye budge (Grave’s affects the muscles in the eye and/or other muscles in the body producing weakness). I have have Rosacea, but it presented  as Ocular Rosacea and not on my face.  My Hashi’s first presented with thyroid enlargement.  I was never cold, lost hair or gained a pound.  My celiac disease presented as anemia with none of the classic GI issues.  What I am saying is that Autoimmune Issues can have various symptoms and are often systemic.   There was a point where I was having thyroid swings.  When hyper my eye muscles hurt.  Scared me because my mom was pretty much forced to give up working.  So...... Do not mess with your eyes.  Get checked by an ophthalmologist.  
    • My son was diagnosed celiac in May 2017 and been gluten free since April. He still has mucus in his bowel movements even though he eats gluten free only. Has anyone else got these symptoms.  Going to the Dr tomorrow as getting  no answers off his paediatrician. I am wondering if he got intolerance to something else as well. 
    • Hi there. I've had ongoing issues with my eyes for a few months now, including pain in my eye orbit, swelling over and under my eyes, dry, wrinkled and flaking under eye skin that comes and goes. I thought that I was allergic to mascara that I had just purchased; that seemed to be when my symptoms began. I'm presently I'm thinking that I have blepharitis. I'm also wondering about Sjorgens syndrome. I have an appointment with my ophthalmologist in a few weeks (my GP told me to put vaseline around my eyes-thanks for nothing!). I'm practicing good eyelid hygiene and have noticed an improvement in just a day! Maybe you can check into those? Good luck to you!
    • I am feeling this right now! It just started and has been going for 15 minutes or so. I just ate some jalapenos, so it could be spicy food related!
    • Seriously check my list Simple Mills, grain free corn free mixes, Enjoy Life, is corn free also but uses a bunch of starches and grains, I listed a rice/cavassa tortilla on there, I listed coconut wraps as alternatives also and those are grain free. I also listed alternatives go gluten free and corn free tortilla chips......I have a corn allergy, like 100F+ fever and blood blisters forming in my mouth, stomach, intestines, and if I touch the stuff I break out in a poison ivy like rash.
