laurie added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithCeliacs On Gf Diet For More Than 20 YearsI was diagnosed with Celiac more than 30 years ago and have carefull maintained a gluten free diet for all those years. Although my symptoms improved, I have never been completely symptom free.
I am now 68 years old. My health and energy level are excellent, but my primary gastrointestinal symptom (chronic constipation and gas) has gotten worse.
Is there anyone else out there who has maintained the diet for many years? Is it still helping? Also, I'd love to share experinces with someone who has lived with this dietary restriction for many years as I have.
