I was diagnosed with Celiac around 2 years ago when one morning during my school I had strong cramps.
However when she went to Jaipur to meet her maternal grandparents, there we just wanted to consult doctors for a second opinion and the doctors had suspicion looking at her height and weight. Also, Jaipur has many such cases so doctors are very much hands-on in this situation and their suspicion was right. She was tested and confirmed as Celiac!
I went to the hospital, the doctors told me that could be gastritis or gastroenteritis.
After 2/3 days my pediatrician asked me to go for blood tests to determine the possibility that it was celiac.
One day after school my mother and I were discussing random stuff while having lunch, it was then she told me, “Iris, we have to go to the Gastroenterologist! “
After the diagnosis, it was confirmed that I was celiac.
It took so many days for me to adapt to a gluten free diet.
It was hard for me to accept that I could no longer go to my favorite restaurants.
I would never be able to eat the things I used to eat before.
But above all this, the hardest part was answering people’s questions.
How do you live like this? You can’t eat pizza? You can have bread. You will live like this forever? And the list was endless.
