Doctor In Oklahoma City?
0

13 posts in this topic

I had a Celiac Sprue test done by my GI doctor and he said it came back negative. He said it's IBS but I don't think so. I've been in constant pain for two months now. I have lyme disease and many lyme patients are gluten intolerant.

Is this test 100% accurate?

Anyone know of a good GI doctor (or any doctor) in OKC that knows about Celiac disease?

Thanks!

Gary

I am from a small rural town south of okc, and I am looking for a good doctor knowledgable about celiac. I visited by family doctor today and got nowhere. Have you been successful in your search for a good doctor in OK?

I am also looking for a good dr in the central OK area. My GI doctor did a biopsy suspecting Chron's but it came back with Celiac. My blood test was negative, and from what I have read there is a change of negative blood tests and if Celiac is still suspected then they should do a biopsy. However you should talk to your dr to see if you chould be gluten free or if you need to still consume gluten in order to get accurate test results.

While my dr seem to be pretty good and diagonising, I am having issues with communication. His nurse called to tell me that biopsy showed Celiac, didnt give me any other information and that was it. I dont see the dr until Sept 15, so I am a little upset that I have to naviagte this on my own for now.

Good luck to you all!

There has to be a physician somewhere on the OKC area familiar with celiac disease / gluten intolerance and nutritional issues related to these disease processes. I am 49 and have had severe problems off and on depending on my diet. I've been gluten free for over 6 months and all the gross symptoms have resolved. However I continue with the others such as chronic fatigue and have been basically blown off with go see a psychiatrist for depression or it's IBS deal with it. The funny is I'm a psychiatric professional lol! Let me know if anyone has luck finding a physician!

I'm from norman also. And like many of you dealing with this on my own so far. I have yet to find a dr other than my dentist willing to listen to my concerns. I am preparing to go Gluten-Free but was hoping for some validation before doing so. Although, I am hoping that my GYN will listen even though this is not their specialty but this disease does affect fertility, hormones, cysts etc...so I am hoping he will listen and order the tests. It is good to see others here in the same area that I am in!

I am in Edmond. Looking for a doctor for our daughter, 8 years. So far we have seen our family doc, allergist, and a pediatrician recommended by a celiac friend. So confused by her symptoms that seem to be celiac after doing my own research, but docs say no (she should have diarrhea not constipation; thin not weight gain). If anyone finds a good doc in OKC please post!

Hey guys, just a thought. I am in NYS but I saw this thread and I know if you call the nearest Celiac Support Group and ask them--they usually have a good celiac-savvy GI doc on their advisory board.

this info may be outdated (I found it here on c.com) but there may be forwarding info.

Did you ever find a doctor? I live in Edmond as well and by process of elimination found Dr. Susan Redwine. She is so savvy in regards to Celiac. Literally changed our lives. My kids are 8 and 6 and both have celiac

We live in Oklahoma.  A couple years ago, we discovered Faye Elahi, a nutritionist located in Plano, Texas that is an authority on gut issues.  After an affordable phone consultation with Faye, we received testing kits through the mail.  UPS returned the kits and specimens to Enterolab in Dallas, Texas.  Within days, we were positively diagnosed for having gluten sensitivity and other food allergies. (We received a copy of our test results via email.)  We also learned, due to the food allergies, that we were very malnourished.  After adjusting our diets (it isn't as difficult as we first thought), and taking various supplements, we feel like different people.  

 

Faye has a couple websites that may enlighten you:  www.specialneedsnutrition.com and www.glutenfreenutritionforlife.com.  She also has an informative book that may be purchased from Amazon.com.  It's titled: Ready, Set, Eat!  Gluten-Free Nutrition Basics.  Enterolab also has an informative website at:  www.enterolab.com.   Read the Testimonials.  

 

We learned that stool testing is the most reliable type of test.  Enterolab sends the kit and the discrete return packaging directly to your home.  It is best to consult a nutritionist, such as Faye Elahi, for ordering the appropriate test and for interpreting the test results.  By the way, some insurance companies recently started covering part of these tests!!  Yippee!!  

 

I can't express how thankful we are to have found a nutritionist (Faye Elahi) that has had similar dietary issues as ours.   Not only is she knowledgeable, but she is very kind.  I'm confident she may have saved our lives.

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
