Going Gluten-Free: What Every Newly Diagnosed Celiac Should Know & Why You Shouldn’t Wait To Get Tested
In theory, the cure for celiac disease and gluten sensitivity is simple; just stop eating gluten, that’s it! In reality, this one little change is a massive lifestyle adjustment that takes months, if not years to accept and adapt to. For lots people, the diagnosis comes after years of suffering, so removing gluten from their diet is a small price to pay for the road to recovery. For some however, it’s a new found reality that doesn’t make any sense. Not everyone exhibits the traditional digestive symptoms associated with celiac, not everyone is horribly sick, so to find out you can’t eat a staple food in your diet anymore, especially if you don’t have severe symptoms or any symptoms, is a hard sell.
