    It'll be different with every person, but it can take about 2 weeks for the gut to rebuild villi. Then it can take a little longer for all the other things to resolve -- and the more severe things are before dx, the longer that can take.

    For my son, it was about three weeks before he started noticing the "brain fog" lifting. (He had zero symptoms before dx, and we only learned about him having celiac when the bloodwork came back hugely positive.)
