May is Celiac Awareness Month. I thought this post might benefit someone like you or someone you know.

Several years ago, I wondered why my belly blew up like a balloon after each meal. I looked like I was four months pregnant. At the same time, I had purply-blue nail beds, couldn’t find...

The underside had a very thin needle sticking out which had been inside the skin of her leg. Two reddish marks were left to heal. She then pulled a new pod out of the package, wiped the skin ...
