I was recently diagnosed too and asked the same question...I am still feeling pretty tired and weak myself. I had felt better, then started feeling like I had gluten and I did find some hidden gluten in my vitamins, herbal teas, and possibly ketchup. I tried going off dairy but it made no difference. The only answers I have found on this are that it is individual and to just try and be patient.
Smokey. Everyone's recovery is different and also depends on your nutritional intake as well as supplements if needed. I'm still tweaking after four years, but I can say after 6 months I was feeling more "human" again. Take it easy on yourself and know that your best days are to come.
KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB! One person's food is another person's poison. __________ Celiac Disease: An autoimmune reaction from eating gluten grains: wheat, rye, barley and contaminated oats=nutrient deficiency=cancer.

I can't answer all of your questions. Everyone has a different time table for improvement depending on the damage that has already been done. I started to see improvements within a week as far as bloating decreasing. It took several weeks for my skin to begin looking better. I still have to avoid all dairy products, corn and peanuts, and remain gf, to see level moods and keep my sinuses clear. For calcium I take a liquid form which also contains magnesium and vitamin D3. That form seems to absorb best for me. I take a liquid sublingual B12 but I'm sure shots will be absorbed best. Eating plenty of rice, quinoa, sweet potatoes and other healthy carbs and healthy fats such as nuts and nut butters should help you gain some weight once your body starts healing.
I am a 47 year old female who was diagnosed with Celiacs disease a month ago. Along with the celiacs disease I have a number of other foods that have shown up as being problematic. My question is, will any lactose intolerance start to subside as you turn to a gluten free diet? I have been told to cut out cows milk by my naturopath for a month to try and get my body straightened around. I need to gain weight and had cut alot of calcium out of my diet prior to being diagnosed as lactose intolerance was really a problem for me. As I look back with the symptoms I had I probably could have been diagnosed with this 15 years ago. I have lost all muscle mass and need to get it back. When will I see some improvement in getting back the muscle mass. My energy levels are low and I am getting a vitamin B12 shot once a week and trying to take iron so I feel human again. How long should it take to feel normal?
