Sweet Faces of Celiac Disease: Meet Gabriel

Gabriel is 5 years old and was diagnosed with celiac disease when he was 4 years old. 

What symptoms was your child having before being diagnosed?

At the very week he was born he was colic, tummy pain, GERD, Rash so bad it blistered, vomiting, constant hungry, constant thirst, diarrhea, weight loss, failure to thrive, sick all the time

Any other family members diagnosed with celiac disease?

Not yet

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

Is gaining weight, no more tummy pain, off all gerd and any other meds and getting ready to attend school in the fall.

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

It is very scary at first just keep trying and find or keep a good support system.

WOW Gabriel! You're getting so big and strong! Thank you for sharing your story with us and keep taking good care of yourself! Have a great summer! :)
