Ask your doctor (He/she should actually tell you without asking, but...) about the next steps after being diagnosed. I'm here to support you and your family as I wanted a place for support when we first started out on our gluten-free journey years ago.
I know, it's very overwhelming at first, finding out that your child has to live a gluten-free lifestyle. But I am here to tell you, that you and your child will overcome the fear and embrace the gluten-free lifestyle!
