I am 32 years old and just recently diagnosed via endoscope said they found a little sprue!
I have been having symptoms since as far back as I can remember, I would say about 16 years now. I always told doctors of my stomach troubles and weird rash and they would say take Imodium and here is some cream for your contact dermatitis...
Both of these symptoms were debilitating until I told the dr that my stools had changed color and I could not stand it anymore and I demanded something be done, that was the beginning of this year, and just this past Saturday I had a diagnosis, Celiac Disease no more gluten!!! :0
My family and friends thought I was nuts and that I just would use my stomach as a excuse not to want to go anywhere far or do anything fun, but if only they could live in my shoes and not have to worry where the closest bathroom was or being prepared to go anywhere by having to load up on Imodium or Lomotil...
Now I know I am not crazy!! and can breathe a sigh of relief! Now the hard part I am an avid baker and cook not realizing that I was making myself sick!!! Now to become an avid gluten-free baker and cook!!! and to make my friends and family take this seriously, they all say you lived this long with it!! (not by my choice) I look forward to the day that I am symptom free!!
