Suffering from undiagnosed celiac disease and then quickly adjusting to a gluten-free diet is no walk in the park whether you’re a child or an adult. Whether you need help now on a specific issue or you want to be well-educated about this major lifestyle change, this site is for smart people who want to become savvy celiacs.
Now is the time to embrace the only treatment for this disease – the gluten-free diet. I have a lot of passion for this cause: my daughter was diagnosed at 15-months-old in 2000 and my brother was diagnosed more recently at the age of 40. My professional background is nearly 15 years in television news, which means I am always looking for the newsier and timelier story to discuss or a hot topic I can develop with an interview. On occasion you will also see a personal story, like when my dog ate the gluten-free chocolate cake. But my hope is to educate people by combining my journalism/writing background with my experiences, frustrations, and successes managing the gluten-free lifestyle in my home. I hope you enjoy the information as well.
For parents, this blog is about educating and helping you with your celiac kids at home, daycare or at school; including information speaking directly to caregivers and nutritional directors. But it’s also for adult celiacs and providing information to empower you to fight for your health and maintain the gluten-free lifestyle, wherever you go!
