Hi Kevin,

I'm new to all this as well. Just wanted to say welcome and I'm sure you'll find some good information and support here. It's been pretty overwhelming the last week for me, but I'm doing ok and finding there are lots of gluten-free products to try, and of course the naturally gluten-free food as well! So far I'm not starving!

Welcome to the board. I'm sorry you need to be here, but glad you found us.

As for how hard celiac disease is to cope with, it pretty much depends on how well you cope with the diet. And that varies widely. If it means that you have to greatly change your eating habits, and you also are very uncomfortable being "different" from the crowd, it'll be harder than if neither of those is true. But it's a learning curve, and it'll take some time to learn and adjust to the diet.

Are your parents supportive of the diet and will be helping you keep the kitchen/food safe?

Welcome to the board.It is very easy to manage as long as you are 100% gluten free...if you stay gluten free you are good to go. You have to be extremely careful. It may seem a bit overwhelming at first because gluten is hidden under so much but then you'll see how much we can still have and good substitutes for the stuff we now can't have. If you need any info or someone to talk you can contact me anytime. I am 18 and I was diagnosed when I was 16 too.

It can be hard, especially at first, when people make comments about it...some people do not understand it.

Hi Kevin

I have been recently diagnosed along with my 16 year old son. There are a lot of gluten-free choices available which help to make dealing with this disease easier. The hard part is going to restaurants or just out with people, you have to be careful not to be glutened. I have found this forum an excellent place to find out information. My son is finding the diet not to bad to deal with. I hope you find some gluten-free food that you like.

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
    • A negative result from a biopsy that is.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
