Well...I remember the day I was at my dads (Sunday) and every meal, that I eventually noticed, had gluten in it. The next day, Monday, I checked my weight in the morning...I lost about a pound. It stayed that way...but today I had a flash of stomach/intestine pains, and it did feel odd because I never experienced it. I didn't think anything of it until when I checked my weight when I got home, if I can remember correctly, it looked like I lost more. Now, my weight seems kind of staying in place. I'm kind of feeling worried about this...I don't think it would be Celiac's disease, or Diabetes because I nevere get the symptoms of diabetes. Celiac disease, I read can cause anemia...well I was anemic. I am not really anemic right now anymore. About 4 months ago, I went a week without eating, and about 2-3 months later, I was anemic. I am not sure if it was from the week without eating or Celiac disease.
Well just one episode of eating a meal rich in gluten and losing weight on it cannot be taken as gluten sensitivity or intolerance. You need to maintain a diary and check this for yourself. Do you get bloating, loose stool, weight loss etc, after a gluten diet. Also, you can opt for gluten sensitivity test.
Anemia can occur due to several reasons. So, you need to consult a doctor and undergo investigations to find that. Take care!
