Changes In Your Body After Diagnosis

3 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

I have a question that I have been wanting to ask other people with this disease.

After you stopped eating gluten, what kind of changes did you experience in your body. Apart from the obvious improvement of the gut in general.

Personally I have lost quite a bit of weight in fat for my size, even though I eat more than I used to, and I am pretty skinny to start with. However, when I go to the gym, the results come much faster than before, and i

My average heart rate has dropped quite substantially.

My skin, especially in my face is much clearer and I don't get zits and things like that at all anymore.

But best of all, the stomach cramps and diarrhea are gone!

There are tons of other things that have changed, but these are just a few.

What have you experienced personally? Since symptoms and recovery seems to be very individual, it would be fun to compare.

My Plantar Fasheitis got dramatically worse and than went away. Sometimes my bloating is down. Other than that, I need to wait and see, because I have yet to have consistency. I am 6 months gluten free.

My stomach aches and migraines are mostly gone, and I usually had one or the other all the time. My bloating went way down in my gut... I thought I had a beer gut and was becoming apple shaped, it was bloat. My hair started to grow back in (but I lost a bunch again due to another issue). My "C" cleared up after 2-3 months but that could have been from thyroid meds. My leg cramps went away. I used to have occasional bouts of plantar fascitis (sp?) too and it hasn't come back since I've been gluten-free.

Unfortunately my joint pain and fatigue hasn't disappeared but I now know that it was due to another health issue that I am treating... I helped me discover I had other problems that needed looking into.

    • I have been strictly gluten free for 90 days now. I went through a detox for two weeks after being gluten-free then started to do better but then 4 or 3 weeks ago I just got very very sick again. All my symptoms came back, but worse plus new symptoms. I have had diarrhea for 3 weeks every day now. I am in so much pain all I can do is sit in bed and go to school. Doctors won't see me because they don't know what is wrong. I am out of money for other docs. I don't know what to do or if celiac is really is my issue. So much fatigue and pain I had to quit my job and sit in bed all day. I am just getting worse and I don't know where to go for help.

    • My question was were you 100% gluten free, as in tossed out your contaminated cook ware, cutting boards, and used clean non contaminated cook ware, utensils etc. Did you get rid of all contaminated spices, condiment, jars with crumbs, clean out the house check your lotions, shampoo, etc. Stop eating out, changed to a whole foods diet. and supplemented for the common nutrients that cause issues for celiacs? Did you get tested for nutrient levels? Did you try removing dairy, and oats? On another note many of us develop food intolerance and random issues with other foods that normally has to be identified by keeping a food jounel and going through a elimination diet seeing how you feel eating different foods and eliminating the ones that cause you to feel bad.
    • Alessio Fasano at Mass General.  or Maureen Leonard.  Mass General has a Celiac disease program at the Children's Hospital there in Boston. You literally could not be any closer to the best. Good luck. http://www.massgeneral.org/children/services/treatmentprograms.aspx?id=1723  I went there as an adult and they do provide virtual visits once you're established as well. So if you're not very close to Boston that is probably also an option.
    • You need to get a full celiac panel including ttg, dgp, ema and overall iga.  all of those should be ordered I would be suspicious of a doctor who did not order the entire panel.  a lot of people on here including myself started off with a GI doctor who was not too Savvy with celiac disease and ended up having to get second opinions.   you may want to consider getting the genetic tests as well however know that 30 to 40% of the population carries the gene it does not mean it will be activated. If you do not carry the gene It practically rules out Celiac. If you do carry it you will need to undergo further testing.  do not stop eating gluten until all the testing has been done. a lot of folks make that mistake as well. Keep us posted.   you should probably get some vitamin levels done as well iron, vitamin D, B12 to start.
