    I’ve been gluten free since June 2003, and, after the initial shock, very happily so! :-)

    I have been gluten free since June 2006. I sometime stuggle with recipes since I’m the only one in my family that is gluten free, but it’s getting better and so worth it! I feel a million times better!!!!

    I was diagnosed with Celiac disease when I was a baby going from formula to solid foods. At the time they said that when I got older I could go back to gluten laced foods. Which is what happened and my symptoms came back worse then ever. Since then (which was 2004-5) I run from the stuff. In fact I take an airplane and fly away from the stuff. Lol.

    I have been gluten-free since February of 2004, just a couple of months after completing my bachelor’s degree. I only wish it hadn’t taken 10 or more years.

    I have been gluten-free since January 2006. I found out on Jan 9th (my birthday) that my blood work for Celiac had come back positive. Nice present, huh? My primary care dr told me that I had to start eating GF and that was all she wrote. She told me I could see a GI dr if I wanted to, but it wasn’t necessary. I told her that I would like to see one and I made an appt. GI wanted me to go back on gluten for an endoscopy/biospy. I declined b/c I saw a significant improvement when I removed gluten from my diet. My son was biopsy diagnosed 6 months later in July 2006.

    I have been gluten free since 2001. My friend called my diagnosis “A blessing in disguise.” People always feel sorry for me when I tell them about my diet. I can’t imagine why, there is so much food available now, great blogs to read (like this one), support groups and my health. Eating gluten free, luckily, is an easy choice for me.

    We have been gluten free since March of 2005, that is when my 3 year old daughter was finally diagnosed after 2 years of being one sick little girl. I have since put my other 3 kids on the diet, and I truly believe Celiac has been the best thing to happen to our family. We are healthier than ever, and I finally learned how to really cook, lol.

    My son was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago, he is 10 yrs old and is a picky eater so finding stuff he likes and can have is hard. It is really a life changing thing to have for a child. Thank you for the information you have on this site!

    Thanks for taking on the amazing and fun task of checking out all the new products available for us Gluten Free folks.

    My family of 4 have been gluten free since November 2006. My husband was diagnosed with osteoporosis (at 43!) my kids had stopped growing at 6 years old and I was the GI presentation.
    Living GF for the past two years has changed all of that. The girls are thriving, my husband’s dexa scan has improved and I no longer have all the gas, bloating etc.

    Funny I never realized in medical school that all these presentations meant gluten intolerance. I was taught that celiac disease looked like malnutrition, not that there was a gradual presentation.
    I am so glad that I know now. Now I can help to spread the awareness.

    I was diagnosed in February 2008 and still finding new foods to try. I find it very hard to eat out and being a home health nurse on the road all the time I can never find a gluten free snack. This sounds like it would be a perfect snack to keep in the car. Can’t wait to try it. Thank you so much for all of the information here on your site to help those of us that are still learning.

    Hi, I have been GF for 5 years now and my daughter for 3 years. It was a big adjustment at first-but it does get easier and easier as time goes on. It is a big encouragement to eat healthy. A good thing. Thanks for all the Gf food reviews. Much appreciated it.
