I've been recently diagnosed with Celiac's and I found your post inspiring as I'm struggling with the diagnosis and have been
prolonging the inevitable (My GI said I could start gluten-free after the holidays if it helped). I've been reading the posts and
in between my pity party , I find glimpses of excitement in the thought of feeling better, so I'm try to hang onto it !
My husband has been so supportive and said he would go gluten free too (until he has a guys night out ) and has
been encouraging me to get started on this diet! I just turned 41 and have been getting iron infusions for iron deficiency anemia, which
at first they thought was attributed to heavy cycles, but after two years of infusions, they ran the celiac blood panel and even though it came
back negative (with the exception of an elevated TTG-IGG antibody test), an endoscopy confirmed blunted villi and Celiac's. But, I wanted to thank everyone who posted such
positive comments ! I need to continue to learn more about Celiac's, not get too overwhelmed and be thankful for
a disease that can be controlled via your diet.
Happy New Year ! Best of luck to you !
