Support Groups In Brisbane Area

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am in Philippines. I have a sister in Brisbane who has been diagnosed with Celiac through blood tests (I am self diagnosed but not medically confirmed). I talked to her and she says she still can tolerate some gluten... so basically she is not following the diet... though she is gluten lite.

Anyway... recently my other sisters have been worried about her (even their husbands have been asking what's wrong with her so she must be looking pretty bad).. she is apparently really thin and is having difficulty coping / is even more scatterbrained than usual. Her two kids also have food problems (gluten, salicilates, dairy, amines....) We think she needs to get serious about gluten free and the other stuff....

Maybe it would help if we can get her to a support group so she can learn about this condition and start coping a bit better.

Can anyone advise of a good support group / good dr. in Brisbane area - she lives near Corinda.

Thanks.

Sally
