Hello Everyone!

I am 42 years old and was diagnosed with celiac disease several weeks ago and have been gluten-free for 6 days now! I am starting to feel better in ways that I didn't realize. I too am going to DO THIS and make this WORK.

I'm still having a lot of issues on WHY ME and IS THIS DIAGNOSIS accurate? I have been in excellent health, and generally health-minded about my eating and nutritional supplementation habits! I did experience hypoglycemia as a teenager and into my mid-20's, and have been able to manage sugar in my diet without much problem.

My doctor wants me to go gluten-free for about 6 weeks and then do another blood test. I had an endoscopy and blood tests that confirmed I was Celiac. I have read about so many varying degrees of the disease and guess perhaps that without hardly any symptons other than bloating, gas and some discomfort from digestion of various foods that I am at the early stages of this disease.

It's like you almost have to self-diagnose your day to day agenda. I have started a journal of everything I'm eating since going gluten-free.

I am anxious to get to know many of you on this forum, and hear of your stories about your diagnosis of celiac disease.

Happy New Year! Brian
