Sweet Faces of Celiac Disease: Meet Ruby

Ruby is 13 years old and was diagnosed at the young age of   
11 months old with celiac disease.  

At what age were you or your child diagnosed with celiac disease?

11 months old

What symptoms were you or your child having before being diagnosed?

Throwing up, diarrhea, stopped eating and drinking, extremely tired ,weight loss, always crying...hospitalized with failure to thrive.

Any other family members diagnosed with celiac disease?


How has your life or your child's life changed since being diagnosed?

She is now happy healthy 13 year old. She is very positive about her lifestyle.She has only had a few negative days usually due to being glutened. I figured out early on that she has to eat often or she would get grouchy or even have a break down and cry. Not really sure why but still to this day she carries food with her and eats about every 2 hours even at school and sports. She also enjoys baking as well.

Ruby, you look so happy and healthy! Another sweet baby diagnosed very young. I'm happy to hear Ruby is doing well and enjoys baking! Have a wonderful summer and keep smiling! :)
