One of my biggest symptoms before being diagnosed was losing a significant amount of weight in a relatively short period of time - due to malabsorption and chronic diarrhea.
I'm 5'2" and at one point saw the scale dip below 100#. I stopped weighing myself for a very long time after that, and hated looking at myself in the mirror.
Now, even having been gluten free for 3.5 years, I still struggle with putting weight on and keeping it on.
Just wondering if there's anyone else here like me.
PS. Don't hate on me. Being underweight is tough too. Clothes don't fit me right unless I shop in the junior's section - and have you SEEN those fashions lately?! Oh and my doctor actually asked me if I was anorexic, and when I answered no, he asked if I was bulimic. I said no, and he just looked at me funny. :(
You never know how strong you truly are until you have no other choice.
