UKsufferer posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)At 30 ive recently been diagnosed. I'd never heard of it before but it explains health problems ive had since i was a child. Anyway the problem is i've never grown properly and have the appearance of a small child, im in a professional job so obviously this is a problem i feel like im not taken seriously and people speak to me in a patronising way. I do actually have periods but who knows whether i could ever realistically give birth to children, i wouldnt like to try. Is there anything that could be done about this?
