    I have recently found out that I have celiac disease. My doctor recommended that I learn more about it and suggested that I begin my gluten free diet. I still have to see a specialist this coming Tuesday. If I tested positive what more could he tell me about this? Is there something else I should be concerned about? I am struggling with this since I am not consistant with diets and that sort of thing. Is this it? Is this a new life style I must abide to? I feel like I'm in denial since I never really lost weight. On the contrary I have gained weight this past week or is it different for everyone? Someone please help. I already know the facts but living it is something different.
