Medical Info and Links
Here is a list of the disorders I am currently diagnosed with. I know it seems like a lot, trust me I know. It can be overwhelming. It all stems from Celiac Disease, which has no cure or medication. The only treatment is eating a gluten free diet. Celiac disease can be fatal in the more serious of cases and other autoimmune disorders can spring up if a strict gluten free diet is not followed. Along with additional autoimmune disorders, other conditions may occur due to the lack of vitamin and mineral absorption. It is believed that since I was undiagnosed until adult hood I developed 2 autoimmune thyroid disorders which caused adrenal fatigue and cardiac complications. I am currently under the care of a few specialists but still have to conquer one day at a time.
I have found writing to be therapeutic, which is why I started to blog. I am puzzled by the difficulty in getting properly diagnosed, especially with modern day medicine. I did not have these links to educate myself and have found that doctors don’t disclose everything that patients need to know. So, if anyone is interested in this information or has been diagnosed with one, or all, of these disorders the information is here. If anyone has any questions at all, don’t be afraid to ask. I’ll be happy to share what I’ve learned over my medical journey.
