About Me

My name is Alexa and I'm from Philadelphia. I'm 19 years old and I was diagnosed with celiac disease in january of 2011. I had symptoms of celiac for most of my life, but because I thought it was normal to constantly be in pain, I never said anything to my parents. Finally, the truth came out once I started missing school regularly, and after 3 years of seeing a GI who told me my issues were because I was overweight, I finally got my diagnosis. I had complete villous atrophy at that point, and I am still in the healing process! Going gluten free was easier than I had originally anticipated because I was lucky to have such interested and supportive family and friends. If you have anything you'd like to ask me about my celiac disease or anything else, please feel free to contact me!
