I was diagnosed with celiac disease a little over two years ago. If you have celiac disease you know that means the villi in my small intestine, the little fingerlike projections responsible for absorbing nutrients, were essentially trashed by my immune system in response to the presence of gluten.
Now that I'm on a gluten-free diet, my villi are repaired and I'm absorbing nutrients a little too well: I'm about 25 pounds heavier than when I was diagnosed. Has anyone else had that problem after getting your celiac disease under control? What did you do about it?
