Some Questions?
Hello,
I've been getting some mixed answers for some questions I've had about Celiac disease so maybe some of you can clarify? Could iron deficiency (not anemia, just iron deficiency) be a symptom of malabsorption caused by celiac disease? And what about Vitamin D deficiency?

Much appreciated.

Yes. Any vitamin deficiency can be related to malabsorption. Are you recently GF? It may take a while to start properly absorbing nutrients.

I am sure there are others but I have read that 3 deficiencies that just about everyone with Celiac/gluten intolerance have are iron, Vit D and Vit B12.

I was deficient in vitamin D and I think iron.  It took 18 months for my guts to heal to a point where everything is finally working right and my body is actually sending some unused vitamins to my urine.  When it happens, your urine gets brighter yellow pretty dramatically.  Until now, I really felt best when I took iron supplements or ate beef, and I was taking iron now and then.  I have been taking 2000 IU of vitamin D for years.  I knew I needed it because when I started a job outside, absorbing vitamin D from the sun every day, I felt so energized.  Oh, and I take zinc now and then, and that helps too. I'm scared to take 50 mg all the time, but will take it every other day for a week or two, plus any time I get a virus I take it every day.
