Here are some things that have improved for me. Please I would like others to list their improvements.

Sometimes I feel invigorated after excercise instead of devastated.

High blood pressure lowered to almost athletic level

Orthostatic blood pressure curve normalizes

Dry skin relieved

Dry hay stack hair turns to silky

Insatiable appetite slackened

Dizziness abates

Fatigue becomes infrequent or is based on activity level.

Age spots fall off neck.

Heavy eyes are lighter.

I lost 30lbs and kept it study 3 years.

My gums are getting less likely to bleed.

I have also been getting Chiropractic adjustments and can feel that they help now.

I'm only 1 month in to recovery, but I was severely malnourished - I have no way of knowing if I was more severe than anybody else but I know I have an incredibly high pain threshold and I was reduced to not getting out of bed 2-3 entire days a week.

My "repair" seems to be happening at an astronomical pace.

Fingernails need to be cut every 2-3 days -- previously once a month

I get shooting hairs out of my bald area that grow 2 inches overnight

Skin conditioner not needed - I live in super dry Phoenix and my skin is no longer dry and flaking.

Blood pressure is coming down steadily

Weight is coming down steadily

Ability to exercise is "through the roof" Now, when I work out, the next day I feel stronger instead of weaker.

Depression is gone.

Can't do has been replaced with Can do.

My severe body aches and pains are completely gone, even on days when I run 5-7 miles.

I like this thread. The no constant vomiting and other GI issues is how many of us start here, but it is nice to see all this other stuff that hopefully will help us stay gluten-free.

This is just what I wanted. Thanks, I don't think I was done with my list; however it may come in snatches. Please others can you add to this? I am glad people like it. The more variety in our symptoms shared the more encouraging it can be! There is hope.

Hi,

I have severe dermatitis herpetiformis and have had it come and go for the past 4 years. I'm an East Texas girl who loves her fried chicken and gravy, chicken and spaghetti casserole, etc. but the truth is, I suffer from other symptoms besides DH.

Your list has made me more determined to stick to a gluten-free lifestyle. (It ain't easy.)

I have itchy, dry, flaky skin all over my body and scalp.

Thank you for the motivation. I need it.

    • Yep I nailed a JAXpac meal prep kit on amazon day and have been leaving my house more with it packing my own gluten-free herbed flat bread, salads, almond butter, and seeds with me. Made a nice vegan  taco soup the other day with my own cheese sauce, keto salsa (watered down low carb version thickened to a sauce with konjac) miracle rice, and jackfruit meat sub, was great with some taco seasoned thin flat breads from my newest recipe used as tortillas. Lifes been good for me this month celiac health wise. >.< everything else is SUPER bad lol.
    • Yep, we really have it good when you think about it. The only treatment for us is eating gluten free. No pills, no chemo, no radiation. And there is plenty for us to eat, especially now with so many gluten-free foods on the market that are tasty. Labeling laws make it easier too. 20 years ago, these things were not true and celiacs had to be wary of so much. I am glad to hear you are taking your own food when eating out. Kudos!
    • D3 should be taken every 3-7days not daily. It stays in your body for awhile and is easy to OD with causing nausea and vomiting.
    • I am only 7 weeks gluten free and it hasn't been that bad.  I am a silent celiac so I may be glutening myself without knowing it. However, it hasn't been as bad as I thought.  There are a lot of foods I can eat.  When I have had to eat out, I bring my own salad.  At home, whatever I prepare is gluten free.  A friend of mine who had breast cancer a few years back, contracted Parkinson's last year and the. Found out her cancer is back.  It really put this in perspective for me.  I don't have to take pills and deal with side effects, I don't have cancer.  I have to watch my food intake.  I can do it.
    • Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than the moment when you're in the middle of it. I forgot to mention, yeah, I have had a full vitamin, mineral, and general blood panel done and everything came back normal. Regardless I still supplement with a good (and expensive) multivitamin plus sublingual D3 and B12 every day, and naturally I scrutinize the labels on those and everything else for anything even non-gluten that sounds fishy, including the possibility of CC at the factory. I guess it will just take longer to stabilize.
