On average, how long was it before panic attacks subsided? I've read some were quickly, some were months, and now I see it took some many many years. I'm only on day 3 of gluten-free.
Celiac.com 02/24/2017 - Have wheat and gluten changed over time? Is the wheat we consume today substantially different to the wheat we ate fifty or one-hundred years ago? These are interesting questions that have invited a good deal of speculation, but so far, at least, no good answers. Dr. Chris Miller, a former faculty member at Kansas State University in Grain Science and Industry, now the director of wheat quality research at Heartland Plant Innovations, is working on a project that could allow people with celiac disease to safely consume wheat. As part of that project, Dr. Miller is studying different wheat varieties from the Kansas State University breeding program. So far, he has examined 50 Hard Red Winter wheat lines, which include current commercial varieties, older varieties once common, but rarely planted today, and wild relatives of wheat. "With these different varieties we can get a broad understanding of how genetics change over time, or if they have changed through our breeding selection," Miller says. Miller and his colleagues started by characterizing the varieties' traits from the field all the way through their protein characterization, their genetic makeup (which involves the plants' genotypes), end-product testing (which examines the plants' milling and baking qualities), and health and nutrition attributes. Eventually, they hope to have good data on all of the wheat varieties in the study. This is exploratory research, says Aaron Harries, Vice President of Research and Operations at Kansas Wheat, "We're not sure what we are going to find." They hope their preliminary research data will help them toward their main goal of helping people with celiac disease be able to consume wheat products without any digestion problems. "This is a study that's focused for the good of all human health. We're doing research here that they aren't doing anywhere else," Jordan Hildebrand, program assistant at Kansas Wheat, said. "The fact that Kansas wheat farmers took the initiative to fund the research showed their foresight and their desire to deliver a wholesome product for everyone who wants to have their bread and eat it too."

funkflex posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Hi, fellow celiacs I have some questions on how this celiac thing is going to work out. Hopefully there´s someone out there with a story similar to mine: The first two and a half months on the gluten free diet, I felt crap basically. Two weeks ago I started sleeping less and being able to do more during the day. Then came this weekend and I am feeling crap again with balloon-belly and constipation. During the night I wake up every three hours because I am so thirsty and my mouth feels dried out. I then drink a litre or so of water, eat a couple of prunes to help get my system working, go to sleep again and repeat until morning. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 3 months ago by gastroscopy with "moderate atrophy Marsh 3b". Anti-deaminated gliadin IgG was 49 in September 2012 (down to 11 in January this year). I am a male in his mid twenties. The celiac was discovered after me being ill and partially bedridden during two years, for what doctors thought was "postviral fatigue syndrome". I have no other known illnesses. I regularly drink probiotics and try to keep a high-fibre diet. I work around two hours from home every day and do very little apart from that. If I talk too much I become hoarse and feel thirsty again. If I try to exercise more than a brief swim once a week, my limbs become heavy and I just start feeling incredibly tired. Staying out of bed then turns into an exercise in determination and self-discipline. After years of being ill I want a social life, be able to do sports and to get ahead in my career like everyone else. WHEN will there be an end to this? WHY am I tired, constipated, bloated and extremely thirsty? HOW will I know if I am heading in the right direction recoverywise?
