I am seeking a Doctor that actually has experience with celiac disease. My symptoms are getting quite severe and want to be reffered to a few specialists. My present experience has been medical proffessionals scratching their heads and filling me full of painkillers :P
Thanks :)

I live in Edmonton Alberta, but I have to tell you to find a G.I. doctor that might be involved with the celiac association of canada. I personally have not found a good doctor around here, I've seen two and they were really harsh, mean, and uncaring. But none the less, I'm sure that if you wrote the celiace association of canada a suggestion for a doctor, they might be able to help.

HI Athena

I live in BC too, and was just diagnosed with celiac disease, and am looking for a good doctor. Actually, I need a good nutritionist too. I will let you know if I find anything :)

Don't know if you've found a doctor in Vancouver but I've just been in contact today with one and he's supposedly an expert in gluten intolerance. He's at Sage Clinic. His name is Arjuna Veeravagu. He's a naturopathic physician. The web site is www.sageclinic.com Hope this helps.

Lynne: did you see Arjuna Veeravagu?  I can't find a review of him online.  If you saw him, could you please comment on your experience?  Thank you!

Severely gluten-sensitive.  1 celiac blood test negative, after a week of being gluten-free.  Whether it's celiac or not, we'll never know.

 

110% gluten-free for life.  :D

kareng: Thanks.  I saw that, but I was hoping she was still active.  I didn't check her user profile and activity, though... next time, I'll do so!

Has anyone made progress finding a doctor in the Vancouver, BC or surrounding area who specializes in gluten intolerance (both celiac and non-celiac)?

 

I am looking especially for someone who knows the neurological manifestations.  I'd prefer an MD to a Naturopath Doctor, but suggestions for a naturopath are welcome as well.  Has anyone seen the naturopath mentioned earlier on this thread, Arjuna Veeravagu?

 

Thank you for your help!!!

Good luck finding a doctor.  You can contact the Canadian Celiac Association at http://www.celiac.ca/ and they might be able to inform you of any doctors that are in your area.  More likely they will tell you of the lack of doctors, as they did for me.  There are no doctors in Calgary where I live that have expertise in celiac disease, but maybe Vancouver will be different.

 

You may be interested to know about a great new book out by neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter called 'Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar--Your Brain's Silent Killers'.  It's not entirely about celiac disease, although it comes up a lot.  He thinks that 30 to 40 percent of all people are negatively affected by gluten.  He seems pretty convinced that lots of different conditions out there are the result of eating wheat and also too much sugar.  For example the explosion of Alzheimer's disease patients seem to be linked to the increased consumption of wheat in recent decades.  It's a fascinating read if you want some background on all the bad things gluten can do to the brain.  Dr. Perlmutter is also on Facebook and actually seems to answer questions there.
