Austin, Tx Doctor Recommendations
0

3 posts in this topic

Can anyone recommend a doctor in Austin, TX or surrounding areas (could go to San Antonio or Houston) that is knowledgeable about treating the secondary conditions related to Celiac disease (skin rashes, Sjogren's, nutrient deficiencies, etc.)? After eliminating glutens and other allergens from my diet, I just need help diagnosing and managing other conditions and symptoms. Unfortunately, I have had a few bad experiences with so-called specialists who are completely uninformed and make me feel crazy when I suggest my symptoms may be related to Celiac disease or start asking if whatever medication they are prescribing contains gluten or other allergens.

Thanks for the help.

While I don't know about your specific issue, my family has been going to Dr. Lubin for years for my mom's crohn's and when I first started having gastro issues. But you could call Austin Gastroenterology (http://www.austingastro.com/) and ask about specialists in Celiac's. They have locations all over Austin. Sorry I don't know more specifics, but I hope this can help point you in the right direction of finding someone.

Hi! Have you found anyone?? I live in Austin (also willing to go to someone in Houston) and am desperate to figure out what is causing my other symptoms! I was diagnosed with Celiac in August and have been gluten-free since. My anemia healed, but I am still struggling with other symptoms (nasal congestion, dry eyes, etc.) and have gone to multiple specialists to try to figure it out. I finally found a nutritionist in Austin who specializes in Celiac, but she does not take insurance :( and I cannot afford anymore medical bills right now.

 

Have you figured out anything about any nutritional deficiences or other autoimmune diseases??

 

Thank you!!!

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
