I diagnosed myself for gluten intolerance after a lifetime of bizarre, seemingly unrelated afflictions. If my doctors had their way, I would have already undergone neck surgery, still be on 3 different inhalers for asthma, be vomiting daily and having chronic panic attacks. However, since eliminating gluten from my diet in May 2009, I no longer suffer from any of those things. Even with the proof in the pudding (or gluten) my doctors now want me to ingest gluten to test for celiac-no can do.
Celiac Disease Foundation is pleased to announce that UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) is now offering a Celiac Clinic.
Adult gastroenterologists, Eric Esrailian MD and Shannon Lewis MD will see patients on Tuesday mornings at 100 UCLA Medical Plaza, Suite 700, Los Angeles CA.
The UCLA Celiac Clinic will serve anyone who requires testing, is seeking a diagnosis or who is already diagnosed and needs follow-up care or a referral to another specialist.
