"The Farmer's Daughter Cooks Gluten Free"
Diane Jacobs was diagnosed in 2003 with Celiac Disease after experiencing decades of nebulous autoimmune disease and digestive disease symptoms that culminated with becoming increasingly ill over a period of about two years.
She had been to numerous physicians, autoimmune disease specialists,
over many years.
A diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), colitis, ulcer, and gall bladder disease were suggested, as well as psychotherapy.
Finally, a colonoscopy/endoscopy discovered flattened villi and damaged tissue in the lining of her small intestine indicating intestinal disease. Even then, there was still confusion from the physician regarding clarification as to whether this condition was truly Celiac Disease. In addition, many of her symptoms seemed to be autoimmune in nature.
After abstaining from gluten for a year and a half, and after a second endoscopy showed that there was no longer damage in the small intestine..
... it was more clearly indicated that Ms. Jacobs did indeed have Celiac Disease.
Yet Diane continues to battle
other autoimmune disease...
...that may be partly or completely attributable to the fact that so many years passed without obtaining a correct diagnosis.
Diane's primary background is as an entrepreneur with a sales and marketing focus.She provided sales coverage previously for Xerox Corporation in the Northern Arizona market.
In addition to her desire to help others through sharing information, her personal interests include gluten free cooking and gluten free recipe development, gardening, home decorating, hiking, photography, living a full life, and experiencing the great outdoors.
"It is my wish to thank the author
her Celiac story available to the public and, hopefully,
will prevent the damage that can occur in its' wake.
I have now experienced many issues
with autoimmune disease such as cancer, EDS, and hepatitis C. My family will now have this information available to them. Everyone should be aware of the
dangers lurking in gluten. Through the
now this celiac information is easily accessible to everyone."
