Hello! After a lot of scary symptoms (with the commonly associated GI symptoms running in the background for some time), I was finally dx with gluten intolerance (very high IgG) back in August. I also started losing weight rapidly due to my intestinal and pancreatic damage and inability to absorb nutrients, though I'd had iron and b12 deficiency for years. I guess those were clues all along.
I was never given a formal dx of celiac disease... By the time that testing was conducted I was already off gluten for a month. My results from being off gluten have been miraculous. I also went off casein (cow's milk) because that also revealed high IgG.
My question is, why might I still losing weight? Is it because I'm not getting the amount of carbs I used to? At first when I started this diet change, I was "hangry" all the time. Now I seem to have gotten over that hump and am more or less grazing throughout the day.
I guess this is just fleeting paranoia. My symptoms were so, so bad with the gluten that I was convinced I had a horrible, devastating disease (i.e. cancer, vasculitis, etc.) Is continued weight loss common with this condition?
I will mention that my body feels like it's done a total reset. I have energy. My metabolism was stunted for a while, even with regular moderate exercise. That no longer seems to be a problem...
