    • Sure, you should consider getting tested for celiac disease.  There is no test for Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance or Sensivity.  However, you have to be consuming gluten daily for at least 12 weeks as ALL celiac tests require you to be consuming gluten.   Learn more about testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Welcome Isabel!   It is hard having celiac disease, but after a while it does get easier.  Just so you know, I am an adult, but I am a Girl Scout Leader, have a daughter who is 16 and one of my daughter’s friends was just diagnosed with celiac disease just three weeks ago!   Social events can be hard, but you can bring some food that is actually better than just snacks.  If I am going to a friends house, I can bring food and reheat it in the microwave.  I also have a good thermos that I can fill with Spaghetti, chili or soup.  I also bring ice cream and keep it in the freezer.  One of our troop members is really allergic  to nuts and milk, yet all her friends (true friends) accommodate her.  For example, I make some pretty good gluten free, dairy free, and nut free brownies for her.  At our troop meetings or camping, we never bring nuts.  She is never left out.  Now, we are working with our Newbie celiac friend.   My daughter and I took her a care package, so that she can start baking gluten-free chocolate chip cookies.   Short!  That is me.  Not everyone with celiac disease is short.  You may find that you end up growing more, but remember, genetics plays into it too.  My brother grew after high school!   I think that you probably see your doctor often, because they want to insure that you are following the gluten free diet.  Consider yourself lucky because some people do not have access to medical care.  They must manage this all on their own.   Take care and be safe!  Do not give out too much private information (did I say I was a Mom?”)  be patient and some other teens should show up in the other sections, but you can always ask anyone here a question.   P.S. Check out celiac summer camps.  Google it.  Imagine a ton of kids just like you!    I wanna go!    
    • I have two suggestions. First try switching to mostly natural gluten free foods. It makes the diet much easier. Second, i know you said you know the consequences, but really think deeply. in some ways, gluten is poison to your intestines. it literally eats away at it! so next time you think about eating gluten, think what you are really putting your body.
