Newly Diagnosed

28 November 2013 - 06:38 PM

I am 44 years old and have been very recently diagnosed with celiac disease. This came as a huge surprise to me because I had no symptoms. Went in for a routine endoscopy and the doctor said there was some inflammation he saw and requested the blood test. The test came back positive with no doubt as was confirmed by the pathology report. The doctor was actually surprised at the results. Not really sure what to make of this whole thing. I understand changes will need to be made but what happens if I don't go full gluten free? I hi k this would be easier to accept if I had any symptoms at all. Doctor said I would feel better in a few months but I don't feel bad at all.
