Is A Nutritionist Needed ?

3 posts in this topic

Hi all-

I wonder if most of you found it helpful to go to a nutritionist / dietician after being diagnosed with Celiac ? I had a friend recommend one - and wonder if it is necessary or can I just find out the necessary information on this site and other web sites ?

My background: I recently received a confirmed diagnosis of having Celiac Disease. The GI doctor that did the endoscopy/biopsy stated that I had moderate to severe damage to the villa - the good news was I did not show a significant deficiency in Folate, Potassium, B12 or B6. I am, and have been, dealing with Iron deficiency anemia. He said I should just continue taking a good multi-vitamin. I also have liquid based iron pills that my other doctor gave me that I plan on continuing.

I am now just really learning what I need to change in my food intake and am hopeful to see some improvement in my health once I go gluten-free. (while the digestive problems have been difficult to deal with - the fatigue, no energy, and emotional ups & downs are the symptoms I find hardest to handle.)

thank you - :D

Mary

It entirely depends on what nutritionist you find and how much knowledge you already have about gluten, food ingredients, and cooking in general. There's another active thread on the topic that you might want to check out for reference.

Thank you - I found the thread. I guess I also thought a nutritionist may be able to assist me in the amount of additional vitamins/minerals I could take to help me feel better quicker.
