Dr In Cincinnati/n.ky

20 August 2004 - 05:28 AM

Can anyone help me find a DR in the Cincinnati/N.KY area that has actually treated patients with Celiac.

I have seen one gastroenterologist that doesn't have any celiac patients.
He could tell by looking at me that I did not have celiac!

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi!
[SIZE=7]
I'm new to the site.

I saw a gastroenterologist on Monday for my symptoms of chronic diarrhea, bloating, gas, apthus ulcers, angular chelitis.

I told him that my uncle was diagnosed with Celiac Disease recently. He flat out said "You do not have Sprue"and "Your uncle is not close enough to you to be concerned about". But to appease me he would perform a "Keratine" blood test, he said this would show if I had it or not.
From what I've read, there is no mention of Keratine blood testing in diagnosing celiac disease.
Has anyone heard of this???

I am scheduled for an EGD on Monday, maybe a biopsy well tell the tale.

Thanks
