Well it goes like this.... I was diagnosed with coeliac D when I was about 6 (38 years ago) I went on a GF diet which was enforced by my Mother (although I did have the occasional naughty sweet without her knowledge). When I moved in with my now husband at the age of 22 I found making 2 seperate dinners were not affordable and hard work! so I chose to eat the same as him (i was 22 remember).. anyhow FIFETEEN YEARS of eating a normal diet without any adverse reactions, I seriously thought I must have grown out of it, Wrong!! I then started haveing lots of bone pain.. I looked into symptoms of being a coeliac and this was on the very long list so I went back to my doctors and asked him am I still a coeliac ??? I had a biopsy which confirmed that I was. I Cried!!! I was gutted!!! I reminised about the rubbish food and the Party's as a child ; ( not all that again please ........ Oops slightly gone off topic about my question.... The short of it is I did go back onto a GF diet but not strictly.. I found it too hard. The thing is I dont suffer like I did as a child, infact I barely notice any difference. So why cant i just carry on not worrying too much about what a restaurant has made their sauce with ?? as long as I dont eat real bread cakes or biscuits can I not just carry on being a BIT careful ???
Im going back to my docs on wednesday and im thinking about asking to see a dietician, someone who can tell me more about this and why i dont see the damage if any it is causeing.. and how I should deal with it. Also I have read that lots of you take vitiamins.. im wondering if i need to ?? I do take calcium but thats it. ... Jeese I have so much more to write but I think for now thats enough... any helpful comments greatfully received
