Scary stuff in there, Lisa. Basically, Peter Greene is saying that the doctors only know what the drug companies want them to know :o :o

Lisa, what a good find! Thanks for posting this. It is worth the read! And, another reason why the Celiac community is lucky to have Dr. Green! This quote was interesting: "About 75 percent of all patients now diagnosed at the Celiac Disease Center arrive not by physician referrals, but because patients learned about Green’s practice by searching the Internet or through a patient advocacy group. " and "And the only way that’s going to change is if patients take charge of their own care. If they suspect they have a problem with gluten, they need to go to their internist and say, ‘Is it possible I’ve got celiac disease? Why don’t you test me? Why don’t you refer me to somebody who treats this?’ "

Thanks Lisa! I'm printing the article off and giving a copy to my chiropractor (he wants to learn more about Celiac).

Happy New Year! Happy New Decade!

Thank you so much for posting this. I have book marked this and will share it with everyone I possibly can. Just curious as to whether it would be useful/prudent for many of us to forward our medical records to the good doctor in interest of increasing his data base for research purposes. Any thoughts on this?

Well, you could contact the Columbia Celiac Disease Center and inquire.

I don't know where you live but, the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA is enrolling participants in a study to evaluate the type of symptoms that occur in celiac disease and to look at how living with Celiac Disease affects peoples lives.

You can contact them at:
