I was dx with Celiac disease a year after losing 40 lbs in 2 months. However, after going gluten free I continued to have GI symptoms, a year later I lost another 20 lbs or so. I got down to 118 and I'm also 5' 6". It was only after seeing my rheumy and starting Imuran I was able to gain a few pounds back. I too could eat anything I wanted of course with my GI symptoms my diet was still very limited but I could eat the HUGE Hershey's bars daily without gaining a pound.
This is something your rheumy needs to know about
. Please keep us posted on how you are doing. Take care
