  1. I am coming up on my one year anniversary of being diagnosed with celiac and being gluten free. I am still not feeling back to my old self, although I have seen several improvements in my health since I have been gluten free, I am still nowhere near where I want to be. I still get nauseated very...
  2. Thank you both for the replies. At my 6 month mark I had a repeat endoscopy and colonoscopy. A bunch of biopsies were taken and from what my doctor told me I had no other gastro issues besides the celiac and my villi looked much better but not healed. I have also been tested for nutrient deficiencies...
  3. I was diagnosed around 7 months ago and have been eating strict strict strict gluten-free ever since. I finally started to see some major improvements in my symptoms at my 5-6 month mark. I'm only 24 and I have always been very athletic and healthy with no other health problems that I know of,...
  4. Hello! I am going on my first vacation since the diagnosis and am feeling a tad overwhelmed. We will be camping in CO, the closest city to us will be Grand Junction. Does anyone know of any safe places to eat in that area? Or even just fun things to do. Thanks!
  5. You may want to count your calories for a week or so to make sure you are eating enough. When I was diagnosed with Celiac I had to change my diet COMPLETELY. I went from eating mainly carbs and dairy to eating mainly fruits and veggies and I lost about 15 pounds (that I didn't have to lose) in...
  6. I'm so happy! after 6 months on the gluten-free diet, I have TONS of new hair coming in all over my head (I didn't even know I was losing so much hair). I'm still not back to feeling 100% but it's so good to see improvements happening!
  7. Hello Ravenwoodglass, I know this is a verrry old thread but I recently got some biopsy results that also said I had Gastric Metaplasia. Can you tell me what you are doing to monitor this condition, and what you know about it? My doctor just told me not to worry about it, but the fact that...
  8. Hello, I am so sorry to hear that your daughter is feeling unwell. I'm new the Celiac diagnosis myself, I was diagnosed in November of 2017 at the age of 24. I know I'm quite a bit older then your daughter but I can relate to many of her symptoms and the "rollercoaster" of a healing process she...
  9. This same thing happened to me. After I had been gluten-free for about a month and a half I began having dizzy spells and lightheadedness. On top of this, I also developed the sensation of having pressure on my chest. I am now 5 months gluten-free and this has gotten much better!
  10. I can definitely relate! I was diagnosed with celiac disease in November after suffering from GI issues. After I had been gluten-free for about 2 months I started experiencing that "lump in my throat" sensation. It did seem to be worse after eating or swallowing pills but generally, I felt it all...
  11. Ok, so I was diagnosed with celiac disease four months ago and have been gluten-free ever since. Some symptoms have improved but I still feel nauseous and just generally sick a lot of the time. My GI doctor re-tested my antibody levels and they were in the normal range. My doctor said that since...
  12. So I have been gluten free for about 3.5 months now and I was finally starting to feel pretty good. Last weekend I had a couple shots of Jim Beam Whiskey and I have been sick ever since. I have read a lot of conflicting information on whether or not it is possible to have a reaction from distilled...
  13. Hello, it's me again! So I have been gluten-free for 3 months after Celiac diagnosis. I am 25 and I was sick about 3 years prior to diagnosis. The recovery process has been extremely slow and has been full of many ups and downs. I assume the damage to my small intestine was pretty bad because...
