    Dr. Ivor D. Hill on Celiac Disease

    Scott Adams


    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac disease is a permanent (lifelong) condition which affects genetically predisposed individuals who are exposed to gluten and related products from rye, barley and oats. Once the diagnosis has been confirmed there is absolutely no indication for periodically undertaking a gluten challenge. It is well known that patients with celiac disease who start ingesting gluten again after having been on a gluten free diet may go for years without apparently having any symptoms. Despite this there will be ongoing histological damage to the intestines. It was this apparent prolonged symptom free state that led doctors in the past to believe that people could grow out out of the condition. This is no longer accepted as correct.

    Dr. Ivor Dennis Hill left the University of Baltimore and is now in North Carolina. He is the Chief of the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, Bowman Gray School of Medicine, Winston-Salem. His new phone number is (910) 716 4431. As such he will be very involved in all aspects of Clinical Pediatric Gastroenterology. Dr. Hill has every intention of continuing his work with celiac disease and sees this as an opportunity to open another center of interest. Colleagues at Duke and Chapel Hill are keen to join Dr. Hill in a Pediatric Gastroenterology Group.

  • About Me

    Celiac.com's Founder and CEO, Scott was diagnosed with celiac disease  in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. Scott launched the site that later became Celiac.com in 1995 "To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives."  In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

They may go out of their way to eat a wholesome, balanced diet including plenty of fruits and vegetables, a good variety of whole-grain foods, and a modest amount of meat and dairy, yet still find themselves suffering a whole range of bothersome stomach...

    No doubt that global awareness about celiac disease and its possible involvement in a myriad of other (mostly autoimmune response related) conditions is growing. Growing, unfortunately, is confusion about terminologies and medical implications.
