  1. I was diagnosed with celiac diesase 7 years ago when I was 14. I have never had symptoms until a few weeks ago so I never took the diet seriously. I went on a gluten free diet when I was 14 for about 2 months but I went from 108 lbs. to 98 lbs. so I stopped the diet. I had no symptoms so I wasn't concerned about it. The same thing happened about two years ago when a doctor informed me of the long term effects of leaving the disease untreated even though I was symptom free. I tried again but once I dropped below 100 lbs. I again stopped the diet. I am 5' 8" and cannot afford to be that thin. Now that I developed symptoms I no longer have a choice and must live gluten free. I am so scared about losing weight again and was wondering if anyone else has had problems with maintaining weight on the diet and if anyone has suggestions for me. Any ideas are greatly appreciated because I am so scared and I need help. Thanks- Jillian
