Doctor Not Following Through
Posted 03 July 2004 - 08:45 AM
Shouldn't the doctor be watching me for other signs of malabsortion? Right now my diet is pretty limited since I am trying to heal and I am starting to lose weight again. I don't even have a followup appointment.
Also shouldn't my son be tested too? He definitely shows signs. As a child we had a hard time keeping weight on him, he gets pimple like sores on his legs and back and around his mouth that don't respond to antibiotics (I have even taken him to a dermitologist who could not get rid of them). Right now is the first time in his life he is gaining weight. He is almost 16 and is on the high school wrestling team. He eats alot more but his diet is very high protein and not alot of junk food. He does get very tired and sleeps alot, over 12 hours on the weekends.
I am curious what other doctors did after diagnosis. I know I am not going back to this one but I don't know where else to go. Also did they do tests for other food allergies? I seem to be getting more and more sensitive to preservatives. I guess I am not quite sure what to do next.

I would find a new doctor if possible if I were you, or ask for a follow-up appt. if it is not possible to get another doctor. I personally don't want another follow-up with my doctor and she is the second referral I've gotten. I just don't feel sick enough anymore to go pester the doctors for more tests or a new referral.

I was totally left on my on. Someone recommended Betty Haagmans gluten-free book so I used that and celiac.com's list of safe and not safe list to get me started.
