My sons were diagnosed with Celiac Disease when they were only seven and eight. After that everything changed for our family.
First, my youngest boy was diagnosed and then our gastroenterologist told us that all of our children would have to be tested. That was when we discovered that my other boy had it too. Both had to go to the hospital to get a biopsy of their small intestine to confirm their diagnosis.

So if you're planning a visit, check out where and how to find healthy, vegan and special diet eats!...more
