In Topic: Any Celiac Teens Out There?

23 March 2010 - 09:54 AM

Hey! Well I'm Gintare. Normally referred as Gina. I actually have had it since about 5th grade. I remember I went to the ER multiple multiple times due to severe abdominal pain. Not one doctor knew what it was. So I recently started to do some research on my own. And I have come across "celiac disease". It sounded JUST like what I have been phasing with. So actually, just about 2 weeks ago, I went to get tested for the disease. It turns out I have it. Not to mention, I am also lactose intolerant and vegan. What a small range of food now! haha. How depressing. I literally look 8 months pregnant at night after I have foods with gluten in it. Its horrible!! XD


Hi, I'm 12 almost 13 and I started having problems when I was 5 and like you went to ER, Even the famous Cook Children’s Hospital in Dallas of which they took out my Gallbladder. Anyhow I was just diagnosed a year ago with celiac disease and have felt SO much better. I too am Lactose intolerant, I can tolerate sherbet though. I am so sensitive that I can't even have food that might be cross contaminated or I am sick. I'm in Texas btw.
