I plan to start my diet on the 15th. Should I be seeing a dietician before I start?.

You don't necessarily need to see one before you start your diet, but I would strongly recommend seeing one at some point. I know a lot of people here won't agree with me, and I can see where they are coming from, a lot of health professionals are not really as familiar with Celiac and the gluten-free diet as they should be, but it will most definitely be of value to you. A dietician, if they are familiar with the diet, can help you with ideas for what to eat. If they're not familiar with the gluten-free diet, they can still help you to balance your diet to be sure to get the optimal nutrients from what you are eating. That knowledge will help you to eat the best you can so that you can recover as quickly as possible and also will help you to feel your best. A nutritionist can also help you to be sure that you get good vitamins/supplements, and that you get enough of the right ones. Good luck with your transition onto the diet!

My personal feeling is it depends on your degree of nutritional sophistication. If you have the ability to detect gluten in foods (your can learn a lot about that here) and know what constitutes a balanced diet with enough carbs, protein and good quality fats, you can probably do it on your own. But I would recommend at some point quite soon consulting a naturopath as opposed to a dietitian to get the suppplementation you need for vitamin and mineral deficiencies that you probably have. Your body is probably out of whack from dealing with that gluten load and your gut no doubt needs healing.
