I've been on an off keto for a few years now (unrelated to celiacs), and I have found my concentration and alertness is SO much better when I'm eating a ketosis amount of carbs (under 20 net) and a little bit more fat. I'm not sure if you exercise or not, but try some sort of exercise (I like lifting but others feel better doing cardio) and once your body starts going through ketosis, it's a whole new world!
Hello! I'm glad you're feeling better. It says 12 weeks, but it can be very little. A few crackers a day or something like that. It's worth it, though, to know for sure and see other things too. Good luck!
I agree that it can take years to feel completely healed and then you still might have some less than good days. Being celiac will be a lifelong challenge but you will become a very exceptional cook of gluten free meals.
As for the bloating, have you considered SIBO. Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. The symptoms often mimic IBS and Celiac Disease. I know because I have it all. Research it and see what you think. Just another idea. Stay strong!
Tell me about it, when you can not eat meats, and a bunch of other things, it becomes really quite annoying getting the optimal fat/protein ratios. The amount of nuts, seeds, and vegan protein powders I go through is crazy. Diet cost me over $600 a month for a single male at 125-128lbs and 5' 11" Egg whites is about the only animal product I can eat in large amounts (8-12) with no issues (Yolks bother me). And I only eat them for breakfast mixed with coconut flour, and nuts/seed butters to bring the fats up then use in omelettes, pancakes, waffles, or scramble them. I also normally go light for lunch, salad with jack fruit and vegan cheese or cheese sauce I make, or this week making portabello pizzas/fake bagel bites for lunch with s salad. Dinner I normally just make a huge bowl of vegan icecream with a few scoops of protein powder, and almond butter in it >.> I just get depressed at the end of hte day and want icecream and not cook over a hot stove/oven.
Hi, same story here. However, my daughter does not have diabetes....Which came first Diabetes or Celiac?
My daughter's TTG is now at 6, and GI wants her to get it below 4. (What!?!? I was high fiving my daughter that she finally got to a 6 after being greater than 200, and is now 4'11!)
We decided to forgo the endoscopy as well. Have you seen this article? http://wolterskluwer.com/company/newsroom/news/2016/11/twenty-percent-of-children-with-celiac-disease-do-not-heal-on-a-gluten-free-diet.html
