coeliac disease urinary tract infections

I have recently been diagnosed with coeliac disease, however I have been having many kidney infections every 4 to 5 weeks. I have been taking many antibiotics and some just aren't working. I am getting worried can you help? is it related?

There is no direct link to celiac disease and kidney disorders that I ma aware of, however, the immune systems of untreated and recovering celiacs are much more compromised than those of others in the population. For example, I used to get a yeast infection about every 6 weeks, but since I have been treating with a strict gluten free diet, I no longer have them. It takes time for our systems to get to normal. I hope this helps you.

How do you find the diet? What was your health like before you were diagnosed with it? How long did it take for you to feel substantially better?

The diet is fine-you just need to re-learn how to bake and cook the things you love and make them gluten free. I was very sick before I found out-frail, thin, exhausted and bowels that were sooo not right! I started to feel better in about 6 weeks, and felt recovered by about 6 months, but I never ever cheat!
