Sweet Faces of Celiac Disease: Meet Aden

Aden is 9 years old and was  
diagnosed with celiac disease 
when he was 7 years old.

What symptoms was your child having before being diagnosed?

Stomach pain, vomiting, failure to thrive.

Any other family members diagnosed with celiac disease?


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

He went from weighing just 35 pounds at age 7 to now 53 pounds. No more trips to the ER with him screaming his stomach hurts.

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

There are lots of support groups out there and many parents who know what your going through. Know that your not alone.

Happy to hear you are growing Aden and doing so well!! Keep it up kiddo!
