Sweet Faces of Celiac Disease: Meet Chase

Chase is 6 years old and 
was diagnosed with celiac disease at 2 years old.

What symptoms was your child having before being diagnosed?

Vomiting, bloody diarrhea, distended abdomen, no energy, vitamin d deficient and iron deficient, weight loss and no height growth.

Any other family members diagnosed with celiac disease?


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

He has grown over 13" and gained over 17 pounds in 3 1/2 years. He's healthy, happy and thriving and now has more energy than any of my other children.

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

Breath. It will get easier! Take it one day at a time and don't beat yourself up over the mess ups.

Chase, look at you - getting BIG and STRONG! You were diagnosed at the same age as Jack. :)

Keep it up kiddo, you're doing AWESOME!

  1. I am sure that he will make it through it. My prayers are with him and he will be out of this in no time. Will make sure to donate and ask my friends to do the same.
