Yesterday, I inquired with the dietician at the clinic I work in, as to what I can eat in the hospital cafeteria. I know I can eat the salad and the veggies and I was asking about what the turkey is soaked in or the ham. She did not have much information for me and when we discussed eating the hamburgers and i said "they flip the buns with the same turner they flip the hamburgers," and she says, "Oh, that little bit won't hurt you!" Now, here she is, a registered dietician, and I am led to believe from my friends here in this forum that just a crumb or two can cause damage and pain. So, who do I believe? :(

Well, you don't believe her.....you know the diet better than any dietician. I went to a dietician a month or two in and I already knew more, so it was useless. Fortunately, I went to a good dietician who knows about celiac, but obviously, you can't trust someone who is so ignorant regarding celiac.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

I concur--even a crumb can build up your antibodies.

Maybe you should tell her that eating a "pinch" of the gluten is equivalent to her/him eating a "pinch" of rodent droppings in the food. Just a little shouldn't bother you!!

Husband has Celiac Disease and
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 2006
It 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
