Hey all,

Just got diagnosed with Celiac Disease at the age of 23 this week and thought I would introduce myself while I get my bearings. Still getting accustomed to the lifestyle, but I'm definitely looking forward to feeling better after about 2 years of misdiagnosis'. So far so good!

Hello..and welcome!

You are lucky to get a DX at a young age so you can omit gluten from your diet. It may save you from a lot of other health problems down the line?

There's tons of info here about making sure you aren't getting cc and adjusting to the life changes. If you have any questions..just ask. :D
