I have a friend at work who is also celiac- I'll ask tomorrow if there is anyone she can recommend and I'll get back to you. In the meantime, take it easy and eat foods that you know can't hurt. Plain chicken, tuna, etc... nothing spicy,... until you feel better. Believe me, with time you will feel better

Hi, I'm new to this & was just diagnosed as a "weak positive" for gluten-sensitive enteropathy & the doctor advised I try a gluten-free diet for 3 months & then have the bloodwork checked again for antibodies. Anyway, he is an experienced gastroenterologist who seemed knowledgeable about celiac disease, and I was especially impressed with how thorough his questioning of my medical history was, which is unusual & I appreciated him for that alone. Several other doctors I've seen (including another gastroenterologist) were fairly dismissive of my symptoms (I heard the old "probably just stress" -- a popular catch-all diagnosis when you're a woman). I happened to notice New York magazine named him one of NYC's top doctors last year, if that carries any weight with you. I'm not exactly sure of the rules with this but feel free to email me and I will give you his name & number, if you are interested. He is located in lower Manhattan right near City Hall and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Does anyone know of a "super" Celiac knowlegable gastro in the central to northeastern part of New Jersey? I live in Union County. I'll even go out of my HMO network if I have to....
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
