Three months after my biopsy, my celiac blood test results are almost normal; which means I’ve been successful at avoiding gluten.
Only that first result is problematic, and even then, it’s in the equivocal range. Not outright bad.
I did, however, have a magnesium deficiency. And a chloride deficiency (I didn’t even know that was possible). I’m also skirting the edge of having a sodium deficiency, which seems utterly insane considering how much salt I pour onto my food.
The magnesium deficiency may explain the frequent muscle spasms and cramps I’ve been getting in my legs lately, the massive increase in migraines, and my recent chocolate cravings. The low sodium, no doubt, explains the light headedness when I stand.
I’m definitely not fully recovered. That could take up to a year. But I am making progress.
