jcossentino21 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)New To CeliacI was just diagnosed with Celiac today. I have been complaining of joint pain for years and more recently complaining of memory loss, anxiety and poor vision. My doctor requested I get tested for auto-immune diseases every year and this time Celiac came back positive.
This is all completely new to me. I don't think I know a single person with Celiac and not really sure where to start. I have no allergies and I am not picky so I have pretty much no restraints when it comes to putting food in my mouth. LOL! I was told I have "borderline" Celiac. My know-it-all husband thinks that I don't have to go completely gluten-free. Is he right?
I guess, I am looking for help/support because all of my favorites contain gluten! Also, let me say that I have not talked to my doctor yet. My cousin is a medical assistant at the doctors office I go to and I have been bugging her for results because I have been in so much pain lately.
Oh and should I get my 4 year old daughter tested for Celiac? Now that I think about it, she says her belly hurts every now and then after she eats (breakfast mainly).
