Little about me:
I was diagnosed with celiac late 2013. I had suspected I might have it after my mom was diagnosed with Celiac in 2009 but I guess I was in denial and in university so I decided to push my diagnosis back for a while. My symptoms for Celiac were constipation, fatigue and anemia . Not having severe symptoms also contributed to not take the Celiac seriously but I guess I should count my blessings and be thankful that the symptoms are not severe.
My mood started getting worse (very angry and irritable) last year and I guess so did the damage to my gut. Endoscopy showed grade 3 out of 4 damage (it sound bad given that my GI looked concerned ). I guess I can't cry about it now given this is a consequence of my own choice .
I have been gluten free for about 3 months (well 4 months of I count the big blunders I made in the first month of the diet) and hoping that my health will go no where but up .
I just completed the follow up blood work yesterday and am hoping that it shows some good results of my hard work for the last 3 month. I need some positive vibes from you guys!!!
