Hi :-) a little confused by your subject "until six years old"

Were you told you had grown out of it? If so, you were misinformed by your doctor. Celiac is a lifelong illness that requires lifetime strict avoidance of gluten. It cannot be outgrown. Does this answer your question?

It's true that you don't outgrow or get cured from Celiac. It is a life long disease.  But.......

 

35 years ago, they may have not diagnosed it correctly.  You may not be able to get your medical records.  I am assuming you have been eating gluten for years and years.  I would get tested for Celiac.  If you actually had it at 6, it should show up in your blood work.

Seriously, if you have been consuming gluten for the past few years, get retested as Karen suggested.
