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.

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!

    • hey i've been vegetarian for 8 years and gluten free for almost a year. its difficult since they are kind of opposites. i actually just noticed the advertisemnts from the cancer counil here is australia now has meat listed next to alchol, cigarettes and the sun. a few years ago when i read about it, it seemed hot dogs and super processed meats like salami were the only issue. which i only remember when i see a sausage sizzle to raise money for cancer lol  but it surprised me that now the guidelines are including red meat as well and smaller amounts. https://www.cancercouncil.com.au/1752/cancer-prevention/diet-exercise/nutrition-diet/other-foods-nutrients/meat-and-cancer-3/ so i would reccomend easing into it and slowly replace meat with alternatives to make sure you are getting enough protein etc get your iron and b12 levels checked every now and then. buffalo cauliflower and eggplant schnitzels are two of my favorites. you can also make alot of cheeses and sauces out of nuts and tofu. i also eat alot of falafel, hommus and tahini. i can send you some links to recipes if you like
    • I'm going to guess the additive effect of a few months of mystery CC glutenings (since resolved), plus heavy training load. The last time I had my antibodies/iron checked in Feb 2016, both were good. Since diagnosis to that point, I'd been taking iron supplements only sporadically, but stopped altogether at that point as my ferritin was quite high (hemochromatosis runs in my family, so some concern about taking too much iron). Unfortunately, my DH is only speculative - I've seen a dermatologist in an attempt to get it biopsied/prescribed Dapsone, but she was convinced it had to be acne as it "did not look exactly like in her textbook." My protestations that this was because it she was looking at the remains of a rash that I'd picked the heck out of were sadly ignored. I do have a GI appointment coming up in a few weeks though.
    • I'd love to visit! I'm half Irish and half English and would so adore to see Ireland. I loved England when I visited a million years ago. People were so kind.
    • Whatever you do,  run to the store now and eat donuts and bagels. Because I think when your endoscopy is done and over with you're not going to see them again. There are a lot of really good gluten-free cookies, cupcakes, brownies, etc.  Donuts and bagels... not so much. Hope you feel better soon after you get some answers! 
    • Thank you! Im going to check them out now
