Celiac Girl: A Blog by 9-Year-Old Alexis C.

Alexis C - Celiac Girl

Alexis C. is a 9-year-old with celiac disease. Like other kids, she likes to dance and spend time with friends. Recently, Alexis has been struggling to stay healthy, even though she's on a gluten-free diet. Doctors think she may have refractory celiac disease, which means her body isn't responding to the gluten-free diet.

Alexis can only eat certain foods, like fresh fish, eggs, fruits and vegetables. She doesn't always feel good, but she's keeping her spirits up. Most of all, she wants to share her story with kids like you!
