Dr Fasano Won't Be Seeing Patients At Univ Of Md After December 31, 2012
0

8 posts in this topic

So, just picked up the mail and there's a letter from Univ of MD saying that Dr. Fasano won't be seeing patients after December 31, 2012. The letter says he'll continue in a 'collaborative relationship' with Clinical and Research activities at the University but the letter refers adult patients (over 25) to the Adult Gastroenterology department...hmmmmm...guess it is good I got to see him when I did!

For so many reasons it is good you saw him in a clinical setting before he moves on !! (he is pretty hunky. :) )

Well, perhaps his research has him very busy (which is all good for us) I see he has stepped up research on zonulin and how it makes celiacs have "leaky" guts.

He is looking at preventative meds for us. He he has always been an outstanding celiac advocate.

I think this man has our best interests at heart.

OMG, I think I have a crush on him. :)

Stepping up zonulin research is outstanding....the other trials are moving along at snails pace - actually I think snails are quicker.

I had a crush on him from reading his research - years before I saw his picture ;)

Me too! and then, I saw a pic of him and it was confirmed...and when Babs met with him, my first question was...so, is he as handsome as I think??

Maybe we aren't the only ones and now he has to hide is his lab from all of us?

Thank the heavens for this man.

Not sure if this has already been mentioned elsewhere (I've not been able to keep up with all the forums) but Fasano moved the entire Center for Celiac Research to MassGeneral Hospital for Children in Boston! He's seeing patients there apparently.

 

The letter I received didn't say ANYTHING about this. University of Maryland must have been peevish about his departure!

    • @kkgirl can you get copies of your old lab results?  You can get them from your doctor (and you should keep copies).  Do your parents have them?  Can you check to see if you actually had the entire celiac panel?   I ask because I test positive to only ONE on the panel (DGP IGA), yet I had a intestinal damage.  Did you have biopsies six years ago or just a screening celiac blood test?  
    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
