I saw this in another post you wrote and am wondering if you could give me some more info please :D

"When I talked to a nutritionist, Anne Lee (who works with famous celiac Dr. Green), she said that one of the key things is not to worry -- stress is not good for dealing with and recovering from celiac disease...

"

Do you have contact information for Dr. Green and his/her nutritionist ?

Our whole family-me, husband and each of our triplets has celiac disease or is gluten intolerant. One of my boys also has major GI challenges besides celiac disease- He has had over 70% of his small intestines, his ileocecal valve and part of his colon removed, so he has SBS (short bowel syndrome). He also has damage to his common bile duct from gal bladder surgery removal when he was 5 yrs old. He now has a biliary stent in place after 3 recent proceedure to remove stones in his bile duct. He may also have a liver disorder called Caroli's disease. So obviously not just a 'simple' case of celiac disease as far as nutrition challenges. I have been looking for a really good nutritionist to help us. More info than you needed :D but.. thanks for any info you can provide.

Not to barge in , but have you contacted the peds GI department at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh? Or did he have the SBS surgeries there? I know they do lots of work with short bowel kids and the GI department has it's own nutritionist, who we see whenever we have a GI doc appointment. They have a really good website, too, with contact information, but the nutritionist's name is Carey O'Brien.

Hi Lisa

Thanks for the number :)

Hi Joanna

My son's Gi drs have their own nutritionist and we have also seen several nutritionists at our local children's hospital, but it has been a while since we have been there. My son has also seen a peds GI dr who specializes in nutrition, but I haven't been real thrilled with any of them. He has a very unique combination of GI issues-the SBS, celiac and Caroli's disease(possibly-we don't know if he has it for certain now) is extremely unusual. I have heard thet the clinic you are referring to has a GI motility clinic is that true ? My son also has some yet to be definitively diagnosed motility issues, even though he has seen a dr in Kansas City for diagnostic testing (the dr there was a JERK) Long story, but a complete waste of time :angry:

Yes, children's has a motility clinic -- it's one of their areas of expertise. Through the experience of hospitalization we met almost all of the Pittsburgh GI peds at Children's Hospital, and while I personally liked some of them more than others, they are all really good at what they do. Good luck in your journey

    • I'm glad you have a diagnosis.  Fibromyalgia is recognized by western medicine, FDA has even approved several drugs for its treatment.  This article from the NIH is interesting, saying that not all doctors are familiar with it ( those are probably the ones who minimize it).   I hope your health improves now that you know what you have and can begin to do something for it. https://www.niams.nih.gov/health_info/fibromyalgia/#c
    • Hi Casy and welcome! I say welcome, you've been here before! Welcome back then You probably know already that you tick a lot of the celiac boxes (so answer to a) is no you're not crazy ). It's a bugger to diagnose however and you have to be eating gluten for the tests to work. So your previous test when the mess hall diet was eggs rice and chicken may not have been accurate.  I collected some faqs on the diagnosis process sometime ago. They're here along with a couple of links that may be of use in regard to the second question about the tests available:  There's also the board FAQ stickied above of course: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/  If I were you I'd be tempted to try cutting gluten. My advice would be not to do that at least just yet - if the test comes back positive they may want to run an endoscopy or other blood test. It's not pleasant to go back on it if its a problem for you, the 'gluten challenge' in other words.  One final point, I don't know what a positive diagnosis would do for your military career prospects. Maybe thats something you should think about or discuss with someone in confidence? The diagnosis can't do much for you practically, treatment is to not consume gluten. So you may be able to not pursue the diagnosis and just do your own test with avoiding gluten. Although I don't know how practical that is with MRE's etc... There may be others here who can help with that question.  Oh and theres a genetic element, so your son's GI issues may also be related... Best of luck! Matt  
    • Perhaps you were run down and your immune system was compromised? Here's a good paper on the subject: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3579488/ Not much definitive, but this for instance is interesting: In my own case I know that under gluten I lived for years with an impaired immune system. Any cold going around I got it and kept it for longer than everyone else. I was often 'under the weather' and I had unexplained urinary infections etc. The skin issues were one part of that and the SD the most visible. So many things resolved when going gluten free that I was upset that the SD, whilst improving, didn't also disappear.  I saw a consultant dermatologist and he diagnosed it and said that Nizoral had the best chance of impacting on it - in fact its the active ingredient: ketoconazole that you need to look for: I only use the shampoo now if its bad and it isn't too bad at all, I think because I'm broadly healthy, eating well and strict on the diet. I have an itchy scalp and occasional spots at bottom of scalp but I can always go back to the shampoo if needed. Like you I have a couple of others sat around for an alternative.  My research has suggested its a case of treating symptoms and staying well, but its control rather than cure.  Sorry!  
    • Yours looks safe I was using paleo pro back then and the company changed from gluten free to manufactured in the same facility as.
    • Hello all! Does anyone take the Claritin non drowsy reditabs for indoor and outdoor allergies? Its the dissolvable ones. I was prescribed loratadine as prescription but pharmacist told me the pill form had gluten in its ingredients and that this Claritin reditabs were gluten free. I will call manufacture company as well just wanted to see if my fellow celiacs took this or what type of allergy medicine do you guys take? Any advice is helpful. Also for my post nasal drip I was prescribed Fluticasone Propionate Nasal spray. I have yet to use this as it is the generic equivalent for Flonase. Anyone know if it is gluten free? The manufacturing company said they could not state if it was free of gluten because they do not test it but she did say nothing in the inactive ingredients looks like it contains gluten???? I really  need to you a nasal spray as I cannot breathe or swallow due to allergies in the air.
