Sweet Faces of Celiac Disease: Meet Hadley

Hadley is 6 years old and was diagnosed with celiac disease at 3 years old.

What symptoms was your child having before being diagnosed?

Upset tummy, runny stool her entire life, random vomiting and rash.

Any other family members diagnosed with celiac disease?

Grandma and cousin

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

She adapted very well. No more upset tummy within 3 weeks and all other storms went away fairly quickly

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

Reach out to others with celiac. I would suggest going grocery shopping with someone who has celiac to give you some pointers.

Hadley, you look so HAPPY and HEALTHY! I hope you're having a great summer! 
And yes Mom, when you find someone else who is on the celiac journey, it's a YAHOO moment for sure!
