Welcome to Glutefreeliac! I’m Kassia Krozser, and this site is the result of my journey from sick to healthy. I want to share what I’ve learned, how I’ve gotten through the transition to gluten-free, and how I eat better than I’ve ever eaten my life.
Like so many of you, I spent far too long waiting for doctors to help me find answers to why I felt…awful. All the time. Why I was exhausted. Why I dreaded post-lunch meetings.
Finally, after a inconclusive blood test, though there was one more test I could take to confirm my doctor’s belief I have celiac, I self-diagnosed myself as possibly celiac, possibly non-celiac gluten-intolerant. I needed to do something, and it was obvious almost immediately that eliminating all gluten from diet was the key to regaining my health. Yes, I could have waited for that final test, but, for me, it didn’t matter if I were officially diagnosed or not. Gluten is bad for me. Very, very bad.
Even before I took my last bite of Thanksgiving sourdough dressing, I was looking forward to my gluten-free life. Looking forward: looking into the future and anticipating what the next months and years would bring. Surprises, definitely. On that Thanksgiving, I could barely drag myself out of bed. A little over a year later, I completed a marathon in Honolulu.
For people like me, a gluten-free lifestyle is a lifelong commitment. It’s not always easy, it’s not always fun, but it’s always, always worth the time and effort I make to maintain my health!
