Re: Bone & Joint Pain

Maybe you should get a referral to a rheumatologist.

The malnutrition caused by celiac can cause early onset osteoarthritis or osteoporosis, or both. Have you had a DEXA scan?

It can take up to two years for the small intestine to heal itself after the start of a strict GF diet. While most people steadily improve the first year, it often takes 2 or 3 years for lingering health problems to resolve.
