    I believe all of the people in the video were officially diagnosed except one (the young girl), including myself in 1998. The majority are from our local Celiac Sprue Association support group. We asked for only those who had been officially diagnosed to participate. The video demonstrates how many varied symptoms there are!

    Wow I’m glad this video is getting lots of views, and I am so happy for all those people in the video that they can have their live back.

    I found out by fasting for ten days on water that something was wrong with me because despite not eating any food, I felt better than ever. When I ended my fast, I ate nothing but home cooked, healthy food, with plenty of vegetables, rice, and beans with absolutely no breads of any kind or diary. I felt like Superman. As the months went on, I reverted back to my old ways and these same symptoms this video says came back, especially pain and gas. Get checked out folks if you think you have it.

    It is truly surprising how many different symptoms people have who are diagnosed with celiac disease. Most of the people in the video were diagnosed by lab test and biopsy. One of the reasons it makes it so difficult to get diagnosed and tested. Please keep spreading the word.

    This video succinctly tells the story of celiac disease through the voices of real people with celiac disease. Thank you for posting it, and I hope it is seen by many – including some of those 3 million undiagnosed!
