Being Celiac - Natalie Jill Fitness ..chronicles the TWO years it took me to figure out that I had celiac disease.

Being Celiac - Natalie Jill Fitness ..chronicles the TWO years it took me to figure out that I had celiac disease. | diabetes and more | Scoop.it

I have Celiac Sprue so I have been truly gluten-free for over a decade now. The following article chronicles the TWO years it took me to figure out that I had celiac disease.

Looking back over those two years I think I appeared a healthy, fit and energetic person. I am known among my friends and family for my dedicated fitness routine and healthy eating. However, I was struggling in the worst way. What no one knew at that time, including me, was that my immune system was attacking my own body. I was seriously ill and getting worse every day.

My illness started with the types of symptoms that you try to ignore. In the beginning, all of my symptoms seemed pretty typical and they were easy to mask. I experienced excessive tiredness in the afternoons, extreme hunger all of the time, but “bloated” every time I ate and experienced intense stomach cramping after every meal. All of these seemed like common problems that others faced. I mean, aren’t all of us tired after lunch and hungry at times? As we get older, don’t we think that we have a potbelly?
