Doctors are so helpful, aren't they?

Celiac is the only disease that a doctor says, " you have it & good luck with that". Can you imagine them saying that to a newly diagnosed diabetic or cancer patient?

Anyway, here is a good place to start:

If bedside manners meant the difference between having a job and not, 90 percent of doctors would be unemployed. I always find it funny how as a financial planner for a big bank I would lose my job in a second if I treated my customers the way doctors do their patients. If I rolled my eyes whenever a client was confused about some finance term and said "here is your investment portfolio, go find out what I invested for you by yourself." it doesn't make sense in any other industry, why do doctors get away with it?

Luckily celiac research is very easy and accessible, let me know if you have any specific questions.

Aren't doctors awesome? I got the same treatment... you have celiac, good luck! Obnoxious. The link Karen shared is great. Ask any questions you have after you check it out, we're all here to help. And keep in mind that no matter how you feel, you aren't crazy and it is normal.

Welcome!

In 4-6 weeks you will likely know far more than your doctor about Celiac Disease.

Start with the Newbie 101 thread, then ask as many questions as you need. Transitioning to a gluten-free life is not easy, but it does become much easier with time.

Let us know how we can help :)

-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.

- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Hi Josey,

Take two aspirin, read all the threads below, and call me in the morning. :D

Ok, you don't have to read all those, some are just for reference.

Some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months:

Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
Don't eat in restaurants
Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
Take probiotics.
Take gluten-free vitamins.
Take digestive enzymes.
Avoid dairy.
Avoid sugars and starchy foods.
Avoid alcohol.
