Is A Nutritionist Needed ?
Posted 12 May 2005 - 05:19 AM
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 -
