How many doctor’s does it take? By Katie Butler

I suffered with symptoms of Celiac’s Disease for 8 years before being diagnosed. After several doctors (At least 14) and lots of random tests I still felt sick all of the time and so I finally took things into my own hands.

I have been overweight for a lot of my life but suddenly started loosing weight because I couldn’t keep anything down. I researched health information based on my personal symptoms until I eventually came across Celiac’s. I suffered from just about every symptom on the typical Celiac’s lists but my doctor didn’t believe me because I wasn’t skinny. I went off gluten to give it a try and 3 days later my life was completely different. Several long and frustrating trips back to the doctor finally confirmed the diagnoses and I have been gluten free ever since.

My new goal in life is to help find all those poor suffering people that have Celiac’s that continue to poison themselves without knowing it and help them learn about living gluten free.

Along with my Celiac’s I have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and have also been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and TMD.

Every day is a little bit better and the diet becomes easier. I am so thankful to online resources just like this site that helped my find the information I needed.
