So if my digestive tract is damage by celiacs and i try to go gluten free how will my body absorb nutrients? Will taking vitamins be effective now?

So if my digestive tract is damage by celiacs and i try to go gluten free how will my body absorb nutrients? Will taking vitamins be effective now?

The way it does now: Gluten sensitivity can be minor or quite major.Think of a street with a variable amount of potholes. Normal intestinal absorption relies on healthy walls, so if gluten sensitive, you exist in whatever condition you are in with damaged intestines. If your switch to gluten free living is successful, your intestinal walls become healthier and your absorption more efficient. ...Read more

See a good nutritionist who works with functional medicine, or one who is familiar with the specific carbohydrate diet (scd). This diet was developed for people with celiac disease. Look at the book, breaking the vicious cycle, by elaine gottschall, which describes the diet. ...Read more

Hye .I see premium multivitamin( example GNC mega man, now adam) has high dosage of vitamin / mineral than suggested daily value.Is it safe for us?

SAFE and ADVISABLE: The recommended daily intake is the amount that will prevent obvious deficiency symptoms in most healthy people. They have nothing to do with the optimal levels for maintaining good health and preventing disease. See http://blissfulwriter.Hubpages.Com/hub/recommended-dietary-allowance-rda-is-too-low for example, the rdi of vit d is 600 iu/day but most adults need 5-8000 iu/day for optimal levels. ...Read more
