Sorry, I forgot to be more specific about needing a doctor in New York. I live in Westchester County. I need a Doctor in Manhattan, Bronx or Westchester Country.

Thanks.

Hi irish. I live in NYC and haven't found one who specializes yet but I am still looking. Have you been tested- do you know if you definitely have celiac? My primary care Dr gave me the blood test. Just wanted to make sure you weren't waiting to get tested until you found a specialist b/c that's not necessary.

Good luck!

Hi! Erica. My primary care doctor did give me a blood test for Celiac Disease. I definitely have Celiac Disease. I found a Doctor that specializes in Celiac Disease. Dr. Green was recommended to me. But unfortunately, he does not take me coverage. Consultation with him is $450.00 plus extra if he takes blood.

Please e-mail if you want his telephone number. Have you gone to any support groups in NY. Thanks Loretta

Hi Irish! Thanks for the info but I'd rather not pay if I already pay for insurance every month. I found that Columbia University has a Celiac Disease Center. My mother-in-law, who is affiliated at Columbia, is going to ask one of her colleagues there to recommend someone in the city. I'll definitely keep you posted! I haven't gone to any support groups but a friend of mine at work also has celiac so she is my main support. I alsos pend a lot of time at fairway shopping- they have a great gluten free assortment.

Erica, I feel the same way. I just do not know where to turn. I was told that Dr. Green runs the Celiac Center in Columbia. I hope your mother-in-law can recommend someone. Please let me know. Where is there a Fairway in New York. I go to Whole Foods but they are very expensive. I had to leave work tonight because I got sick again. I just want a doctor that could help. Thanks Loretta

If you live in Westchester, Fairway is a pretty quick and easy drive for you. I go to the one on 74th & Broadway since it is near my apartment. Upstairs is all health food and although there is no gluten free section, there are tons of gluten free options: cereal, pasta, frozen pizza, waffles, cookies, bread mizes, tons of flour options, etc... There is also a Fairway just off the highway on 125th street. It is huge but I am not sure what their gluten free selection is like. Whole Foods does get pretty expensive... but I find it is easiest to eat as many "normal" foods as possible and then use gluten-free foods when necessary. For example, for lunch I often have a salad which plain tuna on top and I use plain olive oil as my salad dressing. It is actually very tasty. I'll often make chicken cutelts (using gluten-free breadcrumbs I buy online) which rice and some vegetables. Investing in an indoor grill (unless you have a real one) is also great- I have one i bought from Crate & Barrell- I use it to cook fish and meat and the grill locks in the juciness and taste so you don't need to use seasonings or marinade- just alittle salt, pepper and a few herbs if you like.

I have a friend at work who is also celiac- I'll ask tomorrow if there is anyone she can recommend and I'll get back to you. In the meantime, take it easy and eat foods that you know can't hurt. Plain chicken, tuna, etc... nothing spicy,... until you feel better. Believe me, with time you will feel better :)

Irish,

Hi, I'm new to this & was just diagnosed as a "weak positive" for gluten-sensitive enteropathy & the doctor advised I try a gluten-free diet for 3 months & then have the bloodwork checked again for antibodies. Anyway, he is an experienced gastroenterologist who seemed knowledgeable about celiac disease, and I was especially impressed with how thorough his questioning of my medical history was, which is unusual & I appreciated him for that alone. Several other doctors I've seen (including another gastroenterologist) were fairly dismissive of my symptoms (I heard the old "probably just stress" -- a popular catch-all diagnosis when you're a woman). I happened to notice New York magazine named him one of NYC's top doctors last year, if that carries any weight with you. I'm not exactly sure of the rules with this but feel free to email me and I will give you his name & number, if you are interested. He is located in lower Manhattan right near City Hall and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Good luck.

Ellen

Hi All! Let me add my name to the list of those who are looking for a gastro who knows more than the average gastro about celiac disease. My husband newly diagnosed and it appears that the Dr. he has is only going "so far" with the problem. I feel like "Well, here's you diagnosis -- now live with it." is coming from the Dr. I'd like more direction: such as "what should I do if I inadvertently ingest gluten?" Would pepto bismol help? What anti- gas tablets are best? Is activated charcoal best? The Dr. should have the CSA food directory at his office - not to give it away, but to show it to you that it exists also should have a list of the gluten-free websites, including this one. More direction from Dr. on topic of weight loss, what to do if still getting gas after being 100% gluten-free after 3 mos....

Does anyone know of a "super" Celiac knowlegable gastro in the central to northeastern part of New Jersey? I live in Union County. I'll even go out of my HMO network if I have to....

Thanks.

    • Soft blended, soups, porridge, Personally I had to avoid the follow for my last gluten attack Spices (made it burn),  any carbs, sugars even in trace amounts caused gas, We normally suggest removing dairy and oats also as they become problematic during healing. Simple soft cooked egg dishes (coconut/almond meal quiche and microwaved omelettes), nut meal porridge sit best for me. Many swear by peppermint and camomilla tea, and peptobismal but neither of those work for me personally, other swear by Imodium for the D.

      There is a product out there that is supposed to lessen the symptoms of a exposure called GlidainX that helps to break down some of the gluten in the intestines so it is not as bad but you have to take it right after realizing the issue. Not tried it personally but after my last exposure and the following 4 weeks of random bouts of D I had I would have tried anything lol. MY D did no stop til my antibodies went back down and my exposure was a low and slow exposure to a CCed food staple....
       
    • Hi lex, I haven't tested anything with NIMA myself, since I don't have one.   I did find some honey sites that claim they have gluten-free honey.  This is just a couple I found in a quick search.  It seems to me honey is made from nectar of flowers.  The nectar is a precursor to the seed.  So the seed isn't formed until the flower is fertilized.  Then gluten is formed as the seed matures.  So normally I think there is little chance of honey having gluten in it because the nectar and gluten are not present at the same time in the plants. I don't think it's impossible for honey to somehow get some gluten in it.  Honey from china has been adulterated with other things already.  Generally high fructose corn syrup.  But who know what else they put in it? I think's its safer to buy local honey where you know the farmer than imported brands IMHO. If there were a large flour mill in the area where the honey was being harvested I'd be a little wary of it myself.  At least for honey produced during the harvest season. http://www.barkmanhoney.com/faqs/does-honey-contain-gluten/ http://www.capilanohoney.com/au-en/faq/is-your-honey-gluten-free Is your honey gluten free?       Honey is naturally free of gluten. It does not contain wheat or its by-products. Our honey is 100% pure and natural, nothing has been added to it, therefore it is 100% gluten free. In addition to this, no gluten containing products are handled or stored in our packing facilities.  
    • Hi everyone! New to the forum. I was diagnosed in 2012, told to never eat gluten again, and never had a follow-up or anyone really care about the diagnosis. My Endo checked my vitamin D levels (the low level and genetic history lead to my diagnosis) bi-annually which have remained now in the normal range. This level is what I was always told determined if absorption was happening or not. I have never heard of the things everyone on here gets tested for  I feel so cheated out of my health in a way. anyways. I have severe, severe brain fog. I used to be so smart, sharp, witty, focused. I even have some personality changes and severe anxiety. I was put on Xanax after I was diagnosed but my tolerance to that medication is outrageous. I have to take three times the prescribed dose (my doctor knows this) in order to get any relief/clarity. I have a weight problem even though I work out four days a week (with a trainer), probably due to my flip floppy thyroid levels. Anyways, that’s my story! I have appointments with a new PCP, Endo, and GI doc in March! Just wanted to share with you all because you’re so kind and helpful. If anyone has any advice for this brain fog, I would be so appreciative.  I should also mention that I was extremely smart and sharp before stopping gluten, ironic? Like the lack of gluten dumbed me down 🙈 I never ever cheat. I know restaurants aren’t 100%, but I rarely chance that. There may be SOME cross contamination but I never feel repercussions.  Thanks for reading ☺️
