  1. I was diagnoised about 6 yrs ago with celiac disease. I started after DX using organic products. Then stopped, I have not ever been gluten free. I looked online when I was DX and didn't find much info so being young and dumb I figured eh must not be to big of a deal and would just deal with the symptoms. Well now I have learned is a big deal and so many things can happen from celiac disease. I am wondering what is considered routine on health checks and what I should be doing to moniter celiac disease. I have not been to a GI since DX I am not big on going to Dr's, I only go for my yearly health exam and the occasional strep/cold issues (severe). So as you can tell not big on Dr's. Just wondering if you all could give me some advice. Thanks so much.
