My husband and I have been gluten free, caseine free and almost sugar free for 18 months. Our LLMD said it takes about 18 months to really get the diet. Our LLMD also said if you get even just a crumb of gluten it takes 4 to 6 weeks for your body to recover.....makes you think twice before eating something with gluten on purpose. We avoid it like the plague. Our only exposure is purely by accident and that does not happen very often now that we know what questions to ask.
