Since Celiac affects our absorption of nutrients, does anyone know the specific needs of people with Celiac disease?? I have heard that Celiac can cause severe Thiamine deficiency. What can THAT do to you?? What can I do about it, myself??
Once your gut is absorbing vitamins again the most tricky ones to replace are B vitamins, Vitamin D and Calcium. Thiamine is a B-complex vitamin. Get a blood test for vitamin D and vitamin B deficiency. Get a DEXA bone scan to check for demineralization of bones. You can request these tests even if you do not have a diagnosis. If you have a deficiency your doctor will do something about it and they know what tests to run to check for the problems caused by vitamin deficiencies. Don't worry.
