Children at the time of testing were 6 1/2 and 3 3/4. Youngest hasn't been tested but gluten's a problem with him. His reaction started at 2 1/2 months.

I voted for Ty (between ages 5 - 10) he was diagnosed about 3 months before his sixth birthday. He's the only one of us with a diagnosis.

(As for me, I'm 29 with 11 years experience :P .)

I'm 14 and found out when i was like 11... do you guys think it would be harder to of had gluten all your life and have to give up or resist the curiosity FOREVER! I think I have it pretty easy... I know what it tastes like but still am young enough to "release' the habit i guess.

I was diagnosed when i was 14. That was about a year ago. i wish i would have found this site sooner. after a year i have learned a lot and it would have been easier if i had found the site.

Lizzie i dont no if i agree that it is easier 2 give up gluten after having eaten it. once u no wut it tastes like, then u cant forget. i think it would be easier if i had been eating gluten free since i was really little.

Ya, that makes sense.... but I think that after a while your taste buds "dull" because I remember that when I wasn't cel. I had this glutenfree store bought bread and it tasted HORRIBLE but now its not so bad... I dunno. Maybe I'm JUst special.. :P
