    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Searching For A Pediatrician

Recommended Posts

Is there any one on here who lives in the Arlington Heights, IL area who goes to a great pediatrician? I'm expecting my first baby in the spring and need to start compiling a list of practices to look into, a plus would be that they have experience with celiac disease. both my husband and i are celiacs with two genes each so we know the baby will have genetic markers and we'll need/want to monitor the baby on a regular basis. Not having to put up a fight every time I mention celiac would be nice :-)

thanks a ton!

Wish I had some info, Amy, but I'm just saying Hi because I grew up next door in Mt. Prospect.

Oh wait, I have run into some info. Perhaps you already know, but I saw mention somewhere of a Celiac Support group that meets in ArlHts. Curiously, I think it's the one w/ Park Ridge in the name.

I'd bet that some of them know a good Pediatrician.

I can probably find a link, if you haven't heard of this celiac group before.

Hi Amy!

My family doctor is in Lake Zurich, so I don't think that will help you. The Whole Foods in Palatine (Rand & Dundee) has a gluten-free support group that meets every month. You might go there and see if anyone can help you. The next meeting is on the 20th and it fills up pretty fast. There is a $5 fee. I'd love to go to these meetings, but I live so far away that I can't find the time to go . . .

Congratulations on your new baby and good luck!

thanks for the replies. i've been slacking on the support group front the past few months. I was a regular at the Palatine WF meetings and then life got busy. Maybe I'll try going back to them. The last time I was there there was one little boy at the meeting with his mom and several people from the local CSA chapter attend those meetings as well.
