Doctor In Nyc / Doceliac Have More Hormone Problems?

Recommended Posts

I am new to this website today. Have so many questions.

Does anyone know a good doctor in NYC that understands celiacs?

It took me 3 years to get diagnosed. I was having joint problems, hair falling out, tired all the time, back pain, and problems seeing at night. Each doctor sent me to a new doctor. Finally a nurse in one of the doctors office noticed I have an Irish accent and asked me if I ever had been tested for gluten intolerance. Said she had it and was popular in people of Irish decent. Love that nurse!!! Went to an allergist he said that I probably wasn't since I was overweight. I told him that the weight thing had recently started and that I ate very healthy. Don't think he believed me and was shocked that I came back allergic to wheat/gluten, and five other foods.

Its been a year since I have been gluten free I am still having some fatigue and trouble losing weight I put on in the last few years. Have an appointment to go to an endirconolgist to have my thyroid and hormone levels checked.

I feel like I am starting the going to a doctor to be told I have to go to another doctor thing again.

Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know a doctor in the NYC area that specialize in Celiac Disease and all the problems that can occur due to it?

So frustrating

Definately Dr. Peter Green as suggested by previous poster. Look on his website. He is affiliated with Columbia Presb, so you are also getting the best care. Easy access via the A train too :lol:

I have been going to him. He literally wrote the book on celiac disease and is the guru. You can't go wrong, and are in the right city for this disease.

By the way, for some great desserts, try Babycakes on Broome St --YUM!!
