Dr. Ivor D. Hill on Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is a permanent (lifelong) condition which affects genetically predisposed individuals who are exposed to gluten and related products from rye, barley and oats. Once the diagnosis has been confirmed there is absolutely no indication for periodically undertaking a gluten challenge. It is well known that patients with celiac disease who start ingesting gluten again after having been on a gluten free diet may go for years without apparently having any symptoms. Despite this there will be ongoing histological damage to the intestines. It was this apparent prolonged symptom free state that led doctors in the past to believe that people could grow out out of the

condition. This is no longer accepted as correct.

Dr. Ivor Dennis Hill left the University of Baltimore and is now in North Carolina. He is the Chief of the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, Bowman Gray School of Medicine, Winston-Salem. His new phone number is (910) 716 4431. As such he will be very involved in all aspects of Clinical Pediatric Gastroenterology. Dr. Hill has every intention of continuing his work with celiac disease and sees this as an opportunity to open another center of interest. Colleagues at Duke and Chapel Hill are keen to join Dr. Hill in a Pediatric Gastroenterology Group.
