Help! I have a long history of gastritis.
Now I have such symptoms as- intolerance to dairy products, acute pain over the navel, especially after eating, decrease in appetite, steatorrhea.
My family doctor says that I probably have celiac disease. Please advise me a good specialist in New York.

Your family doctor can get the diagnosis process started by ordering the Celiac blood panel.  The GI is going to need that, and it might save you a few weeks time by getting it done before your first GI appointment.

Here is some testing information:

Do not go on on gluten free diet until all testing is complete!

Hi, everybody!  Today I visited Manhattan Gastroenterology, where I passed my blood test. Now I'm waiting for the results. I was impressed with  Dr. Shawn Khodadadian's approach to my problem. As soon as I get my results I'll let You know.

Fingers crossed you get the answers you need. :)

The site CyclingLady linked to above is really good if you want to get further information on the diagnostic process and / or celiac in general. 

Best of luck!

I have already got the results of my analyses, thanks GOD I don't have celiac.  I was impressed with  Dr. Shawn Khodadadian's work. If I have some problems with my health I would go to his clinic.

Good news!  Please just make sure that you had the complete celiac panel taken.  I never test positive to the TTG even in follow-up testing.  If my GI had not ordered the entire panel, my diagnosis would have been missed.    Remember, that some celiacs are seronegative (about 10%).  

What was the diagnosis, if you don't mind sharing?

    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
    • Diagnosed at 57
    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
