Happy 1 Year Anniversary To Me!

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed 2/12/07 and went gluten free a year ago today. I could NEVER have done it without you wonderful people. Truly, you all were lifesavers.

I had many tests, a few mistakes along the way and a did a lot of learning. I'm very happy that I am basically healthy and that there is nothing else (major) wrong with me and my health. I think I dodged other celiac bullets, including diabetes and thyroid problems. I am eating much better than I did before-- no trans fats, no high-fructose corn syrup, few empty carbs. I still haven't lost the weight that I gained during the two years when my celiac became active (25 pounds) but I have faith that I will eventually.

Eating is easy except for eating out and at business functions. I'm so glad I can cook and that there are many gluten-free things available. My hope is that celiac becomes more well known, that doctors can diagnose it more accurately and that all of us can live healthily ever after.


Diagnosed by biopsy 2/12/07. Negative blood tests. Gluten-free (except for accidents) since 2/15/07. DQ2.5 (HLA DQA1*05:DQB1*0201)

Congratulations on a successful, healthy year! :D

My son will hit his 3 year mark March 13.
