Question HELP! Celiac disease.can't tollerate wheat/gluten

I have tested positive for celiac july 2004. This is where the villi in the intestine go flat and malabsorbtion, anemia, rash, etc.
Since going on a gf diet, I have gained weight. 40lbs. I have so many other medical issues such as seizures (non epi), fatigue, weakness. Does anyone else have these or simular problems?

Re: HELP! Celiac disease.can't tollerate wheat/gluten

Hi,

Most people lose weight on a gluten free diet, however- I am wondering if you were suffering from diarrhea and most likely malabsorption from the stomach rejecting the gluten in your diet.
In that case- your stomach might be returning to normal and you now actually absorb the food that you eat- causing a weight gain until your system gets used to having the food in it again.

Re: HELP! Celiac disease.can't tollerate wheat/gluten

it is normal for the first year to feel like this, because I was the same, the villi is healing and, you are also getting use to your new life stlye..give your self a little bit more time, maybe 4, 5 months or so. I also want to know how strict you are following your diet and, what exaclty you are eating..make me a list of everything you'r eating(breakfast, lunch, supper)

How long did it take you guys until your doctor diagnosed you with celiac? Did you have positive tests? I'm almost certain I have it, but the test came out negative. It's been 4 years. Whenever I eat anything containing gluten, I run to the bathroom.

Yup, I get the depression, acid reflux, diahrea...

Losec, who told you? Did a doctor do any tests? Or did they determine through elimination diet that you were celiac?

Re: HELP! Celiac disease.can't tollerate wheat/gluten

hi,
they did tests on me because I was at the end of my rope(Iwas like deing.LOL)..I know so many people that got tested negative for celiac, but then do sooo much better when they don;t eat gluten, go figure. anyhow, you should go get tested..if you'r positive then you know but, before the tests you must consume large amounts of gluten..lots of fast foods everyday....if that doesn't work then you do the ilimination diet..remember you'r aiming to feel better, never mind what the docs tell you, they are there to make money with you..

take care, and let me know
