The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the lived experience of women who have been diagnosed with celiac disease. Celiac disease is a multisystem autoimmune disease and affects approximately 1% of the population. In addition, celiac disease is seen 1–2 times more often in women and they tend to have more severe disease and treatment burden. Quantitative research has been completed on celiac disease, but there remains a gap related to the implications of the disease from a qualitative perspective. The research tradition used for this qualitative study was phenomenology. Interviews were audio-recorded using a developed questionnaire. Saturation of the data occurred after 12 participant interviews. Following the analysis, 5 themes resulted: (a) Who am I? (b) medical aspects; (c) challenges; (d) daily living; and (e) facing the challenges. There remains a gap in the education, support, advocacy, and follow-up care of this population.
