About Me

My name is Michelle and I'm 23. I live in Kentucky, where I am a full-time student majoring in Special Education.

Ever since infancy, I have had stomach troubles. I was diagnosed with IBS-A when I was about 12 years old. At age 19, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. In March 2011, I learned that I'm lactose intolerant, so now I take lactase supplements before eating anything with dairy in it and lactose-free milk is the only milk I drink now.

In May 2011, I have learned more about celiac and the gluten free diet. As a result, I have paid more attention to how my body reacts to gluten (it's not pleasant). I'm waiting to find out if my insurance will cover celiac testing. I want to get tested to find out if I am in fact celiac, as it explains so many of my symptoms. I would hope to get tested sometime during the summer of 2011.

  1. Nurse practitioner is looking to see if my insurance covers celiac testing. I sure hope so, to get an answer!
