Type Of Doctor To Treat Nutritional Deficiencies?
Posted 05 May 2012 - 07:42 AM
My question is -- what type of doctor should I consult to:
a) Assess my level of vitamin (primarily b vitamin) deficiencies
Suggest alternatives for getting the vitamins I need w/o suffering reactions?
It is very frustrating not be able to get my body to accept nutritional sources of any kind. Thanks

I wish you luck in finding someone who understands vitamins--at celiac conferences, the dietitians who speak oftentimes say that very few nutritionists and dietitians really understand how to work with celiac patients with regard to their vitamin/mineral deficiencies. I've been using a hit-and-miss approach for years, because every time I get glutened and begin to suffer from odd symptoms, I have to do my own research to find out which vitamin or mineral may be deficient. So far, this method has worked.

I had already ordered Kirkman Labs B-Complex and plan on trying that. I have not tried Country Life and will try those if I do not have much luck with Kirkman.
