Gluten-free for: 2 years
Why she’s gluten-free: I am gluten-free because of constant stomach problems. When I went to college I developed a terrible rash that kept me awake at night. It would not go away after many creams, medications, and changes in soap and detergent. Finally, my dermatologist suggested the gluten-free diet. It cleared up my rashes, stomach problems, and eczema. Since I waited too long to take the celiac test, I will never know if I actually have the disease, but my doctors seem to assume that I have celiac disease.
Career ambitions: I am interested in continuing my musical education by going to graduate school for musicology.
