I saw this in another post you wrote and am wondering if you could give me some more info please :D

"When I talked to a nutritionist, Anne Lee (who works with famous celiac Dr. Green), she said that one of the key things is not to worry -- stress is not good for dealing with and recovering from celiac disease...

"

Do you have contact information for Dr. Green and his/her nutritionist ?

Our whole family-me, husband and each of our triplets has celiac disease or is gluten intolerant. One of my boys also has major GI challenges besides celiac disease- He has had over 70% of his small intestines, his ileocecal valve and part of his colon removed, so he has SBS (short bowel syndrome). He also has damage to his common bile duct from gal bladder surgery removal when he was 5 yrs old. He now has a biliary stent in place after 3 recent proceedure to remove stones in his bile duct. He may also have a liver disorder called Caroli's disease. So obviously not just a 'simple' case of celiac disease as far as nutrition challenges. I have been looking for a really good nutritionist to help us. More info than you needed :D but.. thanks for any info you can provide.

Not to barge in , but have you contacted the peds GI department at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh? Or did he have the SBS surgeries there? I know they do lots of work with short bowel kids and the GI department has it's own nutritionist, who we see whenever we have a GI doc appointment. They have a really good website, too, with contact information, but the nutritionist's name is Carey O'Brien.

Hi Lisa

Thanks for the number :)

Hi Joanna

My son's Gi drs have their own nutritionist and we have also seen several nutritionists at our local children's hospital, but it has been a while since we have been there. My son has also seen a peds GI dr who specializes in nutrition, but I haven't been real thrilled with any of them. He has a very unique combination of GI issues-the SBS, celiac and Caroli's disease(possibly-we don't know if he has it for certain now) is extremely unusual. I have heard thet the clinic you are referring to has a GI motility clinic is that true ? My son also has some yet to be definitively diagnosed motility issues, even though he has seen a dr in Kansas City for diagnostic testing (the dr there was a JERK) Long story, but a complete waste of time :angry:

Yes, children's has a motility clinic -- it's one of their areas of expertise. Through the experience of hospitalization we met almost all of the Pittsburgh GI peds at Children's Hospital, and while I personally liked some of them more than others, they are all really good at what they do. Good luck in your journey

    • Rectal bleeding and abdominal pain
      I had a lot of bad abdominal pain for at least 6 months.  A few of the ER nurses told me to watch soy.  I think they were on the right track because I ended up having a few other food intolerances besides gluten causing the pain.  Food intolerances are tough to figure out.  Could be anything, but there aren't tests to figure it out if it is a food intolerance aside from eliminating it for a while. That being said, it sounds like you are on the right track going to a GI doctor.
      I wonder if they checked your gallbladder? I'm assuming they would have done appendix with it being in that location.
    • Nothing left to eat
      Buckwheat cereal is what I go to a lot.  Oats may or may not be ok with you.  If you go to a gluten free store there are lots of gluten free cereal options.  Instead of cow's milk there is almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, hemp milk, soy milk.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I agree Katie, the gluten challenge isn't worthwhile for some people.  Regardless of your test results, I think you know the answer is not to eat gluten anymore.  I hope you recover quickly from the damage.

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
