Yasemin added a topic in Celiac Disease - Friends and Loved Ones of CeliacsBoyfriend With CeliacHi all!!
OK heres the thing me and my boyfriend have been dating for just a little over a year. And he has Celiac, when we first started dating I obviously had no idea about celiac disease, so he taught me what he can and can not eat, etc. And now I'm more cautious then he is with what enters his mouth. He was diagnosed w/ celiac when he was 19 he is now 22, while he was younger he partied a lot..drank a lot of beer..ate a lot of gluten etc. He also ended up getting Ecoli from some food place..he recovered. He would tell me that he would feel sick everyday, he used to not be able to stand for too long, he would be in the hospital for months at a time. Ever since he has been diagnosed he has tried very hard w/ sticking to a strictly gluten free diet. But ever since we met we started going to restaurants eating out everyday..i started realizing that he was getting sick a lot( i dont know if he let his guard down or what)..but then i told him we should stop going out as much..I have limited going out to dinner etc..we go out everyonce and a while and he usally only eats nachos or hamburger no bun or UNOS new gluten free pizza.
But it seems like nothing really matters, his stomach is constantly bloated. He complains of stomach pain a couple times a week. And about once a month or eveyonce in a while his stomach will hurt for weeks at a time. And i feel like he is always eating gluten free because we also cook a lot of home cooked meals(gluten free). He gets really run down and tired. and i get really stressed out becuase i dont know if this is a common thing. he doesnt have insurance to get a doctors appt. to see whats going on. I just really wanted to talk to some ppl about this issue..
