I started having "stomach" issues when I was not yet a teenager. I am now 52. I just went through another series of tests and finally got a definitive diagnosis of CD. It might sound weird but I am very happy to finally have a label and a treatment plan. Compared to some here I have symptons at a "1" level, but feeling sick 3 times a week including now has not been good for me (mentally and physically) or my family. In any case I am posting this, to encourage others who are not getting a diagnosis. Keep at it. Thank you

Still trying to figure this all out
