Does anyone know of a good dr. in the atlanta area that really understands celiac and the diet ? My dr. just say " just follow the diet" looks to me like he has never had to do this diet. I also am a diabetic and need to lose like 150 pounds so I am having a horrible time trying to put all this together. I need help ! Karen

Hi, this is probably going to be the worst good news you've ever received, there is

supposed to be an "expert" in Celiac disease in Atlanta, I can't remember her name, but I got it off the internet by doing a search for Celiac disease specialists/physicians on the Google search engine, I even went as far as to call this doctor's office to see about an appointment (I live in northeastern part of Alabama), anyway, she is supposed to be the foremost expert on celiac disease in the south, however, her office will not file any insurance, the receptionist did assure me that most insurances will pay for the M.D. services but that all fees have to be paid to the physician and then you have to wait for reimbursement. This was just something I cannot afford to do at this time. After I log off, I'll try the search again

to see if I can hit her name again. (Also, she does have hospital privileges according to the receptionist, but I can't remember which hospital) I'm sorry, this is virtually useless information for you, but at least it lets you know there is someone right there in Atlanta that is a leader in the field.

Thank you for that information. It at least give me something to look for.

I can always call around to alot of GI doctors to find out or I will look on the

site myself. Thank you so much. Not sure I can afford it either right now, but

I will check it out. Thanks again. Are you a new Celiac ?

I live in the Atlanta area too. I like my doctor, but he didn't help at all regarding figuring out the diet. Maybe if you, or someone else, finds a good dietician or doctor in the area we could get the information posted somewhere. It would be a huge help to have a good doctor or dietician to help figure out the diet.

I am a patient of Dr. Rudert and she is wonderful. In addition, there is a meeting on April 24 at the PF Chang's Perimeter of the Cobb Support Group and Suzanne Magni, a registered dietician, is speaking. You may be interested in attending that as well. If so, I can post the time and other pertinent information.

Good luck.

Kim.

I can't make it to the 24th meeting. I am still trying to find a support group that I could make the meetings. It seems something always comes up on the day of the meetings.

Could you post the contact information for the Cobb Support Group?

Thanks!

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
