Hi there, My name is Tania and I am 35 yrs. old I recently have been diagnosed with Celiac. It has been a hard start however, I am learning and educating myself w/ (books, Dr., internet, friends, family etc..) one question still remains unanswered? Does anyone know if you can ever eat wheat/gluten ever again. I have been told yes and no? I can't see myself eating and feeling like I have in the past... now that I'm feeling much better each day.

Welcome,

This simple answer to your questions is...if you want to remain healthy for the rest of your life, gluten cannot be a part of your life.

On the bright side, there are so many wonderful alternatives to wheat/gluten available now.

I am glad that you found this site. It's full of very knowledgeable people, current product information, research information and some really wonderful recipes.

Celiac disease is a life-long condition. You do not ever grow out of it, but by remaining gluten free you keep it in remission. Eating gluten (wheat or another source) will restart the active phase of the disease where the body attacks itself.

You will find many answers here. Welcome aboard.

No, you can't ever eat gluten again. Some people do start eating it after healing and go through a period where they don't have symptoms, but they are still doing damage. These people tend to get very, very sick again at some point in the future. If you want to be healthy, you cannot eat gluten again.

I'd like to add, be very, very careful of anyone who's told you you CAN start eating it again someday. They are people to be very suspicious of, especially if they're a doctor. If my doctor said that to me I would promptly find another one. Glad you found the board, ask whatever questions you like!

Thank you... Yes I will definitely be aware of anyone telling me that celiac disease will go away on its own. I appreciate all your feed back and I am very excited I have this site to share and learn from everyone else.
