I got my official diagnosis this morning.

My doctor said that with the damage I have and my medical records, I have had it my whole life, and it nearly killed me.

I was really surprised to find so much support on the web, though. It is making it easier to be gluten free, which I have had to be since I was released from the hospital a couple of months ago.

You'd have to ask my intestines.

I was unofficially diagnosed a month and a half ago but only officially from biopsy results a week ago. Judging by the fact that I haven't put on any significant weight for 5 years, and have had on-and-off low iron for about 3 years, I'd say it'd be at least that long sinse I've had it. Those are my only symptoms which is good in a way but it also means my diagnosis has been postponed.

I had celiac almost all my life -- nearly 50 years. That's why I refer to myself as a banana baby. Way back then you eliminated everything and were started on bananas, and gradually added things.

About three weeks ago although I've been on the diet for 5 weeks. I've prob. had symtoms all my life but was told it was the Cerebral Palsy. I started having unexplained problems in 95 and my first bout of low iron in 2000. I'd say I've been sytomatic for 13 years it just got to a breaking point 6 months ago.

I have had celiac officially for about 3 years..always had stomach aches though since ealry childhood, so probably longer.

at first it was really hard, but each day it gets easier.

I am a nutrition major in college, so i hope that one day i can help people the way i was helped.

Hi.

I been having symptoms all my life, since I was a kid, and I found out about Celiac at the age of 39.

The worse and more severe symptoms have been with me for the past 20 years.

Best regards to everyone.

I have only known for one month. Some of my symptoms are definately those of celiac. I tested positive for the genetic test so no gluten for life they say. :unsure:
