Was your child recently diagnosed with celiac disease? You are not alone. At the Center for Celiac Disease at CHOP, we have a core team of doctors, nurses and nutritionists available to guide your child's care and answer any questions you have.
One thing we've learned is that sometimes children need answers and input from people other than the medical team or their parents. Sometimes they just want to hear from their peers — other kids dealing with the same everyday challenges that accompany celiac disease and living a gluten-free life.
To help you and your child learn from other children and teens, we've created this section of quotes and pictures of patients at CHOP. They've agreed to share their insights to help others.

Do you want to get involved and share what you've learned about celiac disease? If so, email us with your quote, digital photo and contact information. We'll try to include you as we update and add to this section of the celiac website.
