  1. Yes, I was diagnosed with it about two years ago. They said that it was very mild though when they did an endoscopy.
  2. How do you guys stay gluten free and resist the temptation to eat normal food? I'm in high school so it's really hard to not eat normal food especially when i'm with my friends.I had very minor symptoms. My only problem was that I was too short when I was little so I was gluten free for about a year but then i stopped because gluten free food is GROSS! I hated all the disgusting breads and snacks my parents made me eat. The bread was all frozen and sour and disgusting. I actually lost weight when I was supposed to gain it because I didn't eat much. I never went to parties or anything because I knew I would give in and eat good food while I was there. And it doesn't help that while I'm eating rice and vegetables everyday, my family gets to eat out and order delicious treats like pizza, pasta, and burgers. I don't really see the point in being gluten free either because I feel no different than when I wasn't gluten free. I was never sick or tired or anything like that. I was just short. But I'm actually taller than three of my aunts and my two of my grandparents because I come from a family of tiny people on my mother's side.
