Well, for me I never know I had Celiac till I got severely sick and was hospitalized for 4 days.

By a colonoscopy I discovered I had latent Celiac disease meaning beginning stage of it.

All my life I wondered why I had severe stomach aches after pizza or any bread but now I know.

Since that my health has been better and my stomach is better.

I hope everyone chats, discuss and vent!

Feel free!!!

take care

Welcome to the forum Mike! :)

I suggest people new to the gluten-free diet start out with meats, veggies, nuts, and eggs for the first 6 months.  This diet avoids processed foods and the risk of contamination with gluten is low.  Plus you don't have to spend lots of time reading labels in the grocery store! Bonus! :)

I can tell you after 9 years gluten-free that it does get easier with time.  What used to be a big change in diet becomes the new normal.  Do ask your doctor to test you for vitamin and mineral levels in case you have any deficiencies.

Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

Welcome Mike!

if yr going to have celiac there's few better places than Southern California, a place dear to my heart. Look forward to feeling better than you thought possible as you progress on the diet. 

And don't forget there's still plenty that you can have, you just have to find out what brands you can trust and what restaurant s understand cross contamination. This site should help you there.

all the best from the uk
