  1. I have felt the same way, I have been gluten free for 5 weeks and I still feel fatigued, muscle weakness, etc. it has improved a bit from before going gluten free but it has been slow. Two steps forward, one step back, some days are better than others. I have looked into dropping other foods besides gluten just to be on the safe side but I'm not sure that is the problem either. All I can say is I am in the same boat.
  2. How do you test your intolerance to dairy? I had a LEAP test done and it said I wasn't sensitive to dairy
  3. I am 24 years old and was diagnosed 5 weeks ago with Celiac disease, I am a professional cyclist and doing my job requires me to be 110% healthy. My problems first started with a distended belly, cramps, diarrhea, swollen glands and sever fatigue. I felt amazing one day and boom the next it was game over, I could hardly get out of bed (it felt like mono). After extensive testing both in America and Italy the doctors couldn't come up with anything (I was tested for Celiac but the blood test was negative). In the mean time my G.I. symptoms quickly subsided and all I was left with was fatigue more or less. After returning to the states I had an endoscopy done by a G.I. specialist in Denver. He said everything looked healthy and great but the biopsy came back a week later
  4. I am a 24 yr old athlete I suffered from an onset of symptoms starting 8 weeks ago, I am a professional athlete and so I was quickly diagnosed and have started a 100% gluten free diet. As my job relies significantly on my health and even small issues are noticeable for me. I suffered very few G.I. issues during my experience for me the majority of the symptoms were fatigue, sleepiness, sore muscles and joints. I have had my vit and iron levels checked and everything appears to be okay there. My biopsy results were a 1 on a scale of 0-4. I am able to train some since going gluten free a bit over 2 weeks ago but I am no where near 100% and how I feel really changes day to day, it isn't steady progress which is really frustrating. I know it really varies person to person but what should I expect for recovery time (knowing that I am young in extremely good health and very strict with my diet) and are my recovery patterns normal? Thanks for any input! Feel free to DM me as well.
  5. 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. I am a professional athlete and I ony showed symptoms for 6 weeks before being diagnosed. I was neg. on the blood test but biopsy showed moderately damaged villi. In the first week gluten free I saw a fair bit of improvement training went back up to 3 hours from only being able to do 1 hour (normal is 6hrs+). After traveling internationally and being glutened by beef jerky (didn't even think to look), I have felt like crap this whole week. For me the bulk of the symptoms are fatigue, muscle aches and joint aches, my stomach is not digesting aweosme but I don't seem to have a lot of other GI issues. I am young, fit and had a very quick diagnosis it seems weird to me that I would recover some in the first week and then be completely back to go in the second week. I am EXTREMELY careful with my diet as my job depends on me feeling 100% I am doing everything right, supplements, I always cook at home and only the best ingredients. I understand recovery can be a bit up and down for people who have been suffering many years but I have only been suffering for 6 weeks, I feel like recovery would be very quick for me. Thank you for any input, also are there any athletes out there? Feel free to DM me.
