Orange county ca referral

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Looking to see if anyone on here is from Orange county ca and could give us a referral.  I posted a couple of days ago about my type 1 daughter testing positive for the ttg iga antibodies (greater than 100)  her IgA immunoglobulin was 78--just slightly lower than range and I'm looking to get her seen by a gastro as soon as possible since she is only home from college until August.  She is still seeing a pediatric endocrinologist and was referred to a pediatric gastro but they are unable to even see her for an appointment until the end of July--then we would still need to schedule a biopsy!

 

Not only do I want to get this sorted out as soon as possible due to her going back to school--she is also experiencing lots of symptoms and is feeling unwell most of the time.  Stomach issues-pain in her legs-she seems very pale--I think anemic?

 

Since she is aging out of pediatrics---I would be open to either a pediatric or an adult gastro who specializes in celiac.  Anybody have any referrals?

 

Thanks!

A great celiac research group is located at UC San Diego.  Worth a drive.

Consider calling the Ped GI daily to see if there are any cancellations.  

Or check this directory from the Celiac Foundation:
