Plumber, Long Island

At the age of 39, Joseph Mercogliano, despite always having been a fit person, gained forty pounds and started the long road down the path of illness and misdiagnosis. Along with the weight gain, he began feeling tired, as well as having chest pain. After a visit to the ER and a stay in the hospital, he was wrongly diagnosed with lymphoma, and eventually lupus and a variety of other ailments. After going from one physician and illness to another, Joseph was finally diagnosed with celiac disease. He now follows a strict diet free of gluten and dairy, has lost the weight he gained, is back to his fit self and feeling great. Joseph works as a plumber and lives in Long Island with his wife and 5 children.
