Recommended Posts

I don't know any doctors there.  I bet there are some GI docs in Sacramento that would be good.  

 

I am not sure why you need immediate medical treatment?  Celiac disease doesn't usually need a lot of treatment besides the gluten free diet.  If you are having some sort of issue that can't wait for your doctor to come back - is there a doctor covering his/her practice?  or The Emergency room if you are having some extreme issues?

thanks......... but my condition is more serious than most gluten intolerant people..... therefore 'time is more important in  my complicated case.. and a knowlegable dr. could help my regular doc help me to stay alive.

Have you been diagnosed with Celiac disease?  Are you looking for a GI for that?  Even if you are already diagnosed,  there isn't much for a doctor to do.

Heres a reliable site with good info about Celic disease -

http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/treatment

"The only treatment available

When you have biopsy-diagnosed celiac disease, you will be instructed to begin a gluten-free diet....."

Also, just a positive DNA for Celiac does not mean you have Celiac. About 30% of people have the gene but only about 1% have Celiac. You would want to get some antibody blood tests & maybe an endoscopy with biopsies.
