Sweet Faces of Celiac Disease: Meet Kendra

Kendra is 17 years old and was diagnosed with celiac disease at 15 years old.

What symptoms was your child having before being diagnosed?

Fatigue, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, bloated

Any other family members diagnosed with celiac disease?


How has your child’s life changed since being diagnosed?

Since going gluten free, Kendra is back to her old self and most of her friends are very understanding about the disease which is great! Although things can be complicated, it is all worth it.

What advice would you offer a parent who’s child was just diagnosed with celiac disease?

Don't be afraid to educate others or to ask for help. We are all in this together!

Yes, it is ALL worth it!! You look beautiful Kendra! So happy to see that you are back to your old self and feeling so much better. Enjoy your summer!
