Fat Celiacs

I wanted to see if there were others out there like me dealing with a gluten problem or out and out celiac and obesity at the same time. I know some weight has come off doing all this. I don't have the same cravings anymore. It is nice to go days without itching to death too. [celiac skin disorder] One thing I found out from the doctor, is malabsorption issues seem to be changing. I need B vitamin shots for at least over a year, now suddenly I don't.


  1. Seems we have a few things in common! The medication you mentioned that made you gain weight (I was fat before but now I am fatter still) and I have Celiac symptoms but even with colonoscopies being done every few years, they say I don't have it.

  2. Yes sounds like we do. I still have to take some steroids for the lungs, more inhaled, tried to wean off but failed. With celiac, there are levels, of gluten intolerance and full blown celiac. They considered a conlonscopie too high risk for me. All I know considering the wheat I don't miss itching to death. The doctors were actually in shock how labs changed. A lot of the blood tests will have false negatives, I would read a book on celiac disease, it can be complicated.
