Feel Abnormal

I have only been recently been tested for celiac disease, but one of the signs my dr took as me having celiac disease was my startling weight GAIN! I gained 36 pounds in less than 3 months. After checking my thyroid (I do have Hypothyroidism) and seeing that being good, she checked my vitamin levels and saw I was deficient in everything. She then sent me to a GI, who I see next week.

I have gained a massive amount of weight in such a short time, and I am already overweight to begin with. Most people here say they were losing weight fast befoer diagnosed...I feel abnormal.

Now I am going to be struggling double to lose this weight. :(

Just ranting.

Rant away. This is the place.

I think there are just as many overweight celiacs as there are underweight celiacs. some gain weight, some lose weight & some CAN'T gain weight & some CAN'T lose weight pre diagnosis. I think a lot depends too on the stage you're at with the celiac disease. Maybe. This stuff is weird & there's no one size fits all. But I can say you are NOT abnormal.

Im in same boat. I've totally gained on gluten-free diet and don't feel energetic or satisfied from eating. I'm looking out for a diet that will work for me.

I had unexplained weight gain no matter how hard I exercised before diagnosis. Still struggling to lose it 2 1/2 years later.

Thanks everyone.

I have always been a good 40-50 pounds over weight. Last year, I worked for the Post Office (temp) and walked between 8-9 hours a day, up and down stairs, carrying a 30lb bag, etc. I quickly lost 28 pounds in a few months. I left in Dec and by March, I had gained all 28, plus 5 more. In 3 months.

My Dr agreed that I shouldnt have gained that much..granted the amount of exercise changed, but my diet did not. I ate a little less since I wasn't using so much energy, if anything, but I didnt just sit around eating chips and stuff.

I do have a thyroid issue but my levels have been great.

So frustrating. I honestly thought food allergies happened to other people, not me :(

    • Hi I was wondering if anyone knew if red rose tea bags were gluten free? I have been drinking this tea for years now and the past few weeks I have not been able to drink it. I get cramps in my lower abdomen and this morning I got nauseated. I was wondering if this is something to do with the tea?
    • @LouiseBea Welcome!  Has celiac disease (dermatitis herpetiformis, skin version) been ruled out?  DH treatment requires a life-long gluten free diet.  
    •  I'm a new member and totally frustrated with Dapsone which has done absolutely nothing for my autoimmune skin disease.  This is a condition where the white blood cells attack the skin, and it's been on-going for 6 years.  Only 1 in 2,000 have this rare disease so zero research has been done unfortunately.  My dermatologist put me on a stronger dose which merely worsened it.  So back to the drawing board of what to do.  Redirecting the white blood cells must be an impossible task to figure out, but in this age of technology surely some doctor, chemist, etc., could come up with a solution? I've read where many people become antibiotic resistant and this may have happened to me.  I'm sick to death of my problematic skin, and any suggestions would be helpful.    
    • Hello and welcome It's true that there's a connection between thyroid conditions and celiac.  Loose stools and other digestion issues can be symptoms of celiac and you should definitely explore this issue with your doctor. This is the full celiac panel, try and get as many of these as available to you: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA You must be eating some gluten each day up to the test date for an accurate response.  Here's some more info. Also check out the forum FAQ   Best of luck    
    • This is a really good serum for moms to reduce dark circles and Puffiness.My mom really liked it and she uses it everyday. I thought it might feel sticky as it dries or sinks in but it doesn’t.It minimizes the dark circles under your eyes and its results get better over time.You don't need to use a lot, a tiny amount will do. If you use too much it could feel sticky. Overall, Excellent product for sensitive skin! And its fragrance free. Very happy with dermalmd's serum and would recommend it to anyone with skin that tends to react to most other creams
