  4. Hi Newburyport, Since we are both on the No. Shore and I have only been dx/d (by blood test) about 2 weeks..I am looking for a good GI person as well as interested in naturopath...wondered if you oculd share the names of your docs...if they come highly recommended! I don't want to have the endoscopy either! Thanks
  5. North Shore Boston, Ma.

    Hi, thanks for the welcome...do you have a G.I. doc? And, do you know of any support groups in our area/or are you interested in getting together with other "celiac disease" people? May I ask what town you are from? Well, so long for now!
  6. Hi Jenny, Thank you for your reply...so how long have you been dx/d with celiac disease? And, is the hypothyroid reversible? Or are you on medication i.e. synthroid? And, how do you feel now? Are you tired or were you tired? Has your cholesterol improved or has it goten higher? Mine is 223! Looking ofrward to hearing from you. Pink Lady
  7. Hi, Thanks for the leads on the North Shore...so far not coming up with a lot, but will keep trying. QUESTION: Has anyone here had hypothyroid numbers at same tme as being dx'd w/ celiac? I was dx'd a week and a half a go and when I met with the dr. today he informed me that my TSH was low indicating possible hypothyroidism (as well as WAY TOO HIGH CHOLESTEROL -223). Is it possible to recover from hypothyroid on a gluten free diet? Also, does anyone know if high cholesterol is at all linked to celiac? I exercise and eat right (sounds like a geritol commercial (if hyou are old enough to remembr!) Thanks
  8. Hi, thanks for the heads up...I have just been dx/ last week and live on the North shore of Boston...do you know of any people interested in a support group perahps between Boston and North Shore along Rte. 1? Thanks. :Pink Lady
  9. Yes, I was diagnosed jjust a week ago for the first time and I am 61! It is kind of fun to try out all these gluten free products and restaurants! What part of the country do you live in and how old are you?
  10. Hi, I have recently been diagnosed Celiac (6 days ago) and am wondering if anyone knows of a support group locally in the North Shore Boston area? Also, interested in suggestions for restaurants, nutritionists, doc's.
