wj73 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Newly DiagnosedI was diagnosed 3 days ago with celiac disease and am feeling very overwhelmed. I had an endoscopy done for other reasons and as a way to eliminate causes for problems I was having the Dr did a biopsy to check for celiac. I did not know she was going to do this and did not think anything of it until she called me 3 days latter to tell me I have early stage celiac disease. I meet with a dietician this week and have been trying to do some research nonlinear but it has only made me feel more anxious.
I am a 38 year old wife and mother of 2 teenagers. I teach special education in an elementary school and I am nervous about what life style changes this means and how it will affect my family. Any advice would be appreciated.
