What Type Of Doctor To See Next

I originally went to a dermatologist because of rashes. After putting a few puzzle pieces together, we decided to test for celiac. The derm feels my results are negative, though I do have an elevated ttg IgG level. My GI symptoms were never awful, and have really cleared up on a 10 day or so gluten-free diet. Other possible symptoms include tingling in hands and feet, along with many other possible auto immune symptoms.

So, given my test results and my symptoms, what kind of doctor do I see? If it's not celiac, I feel something isn't right. Do I go to a GI? A neorologist? What type of doc generally sees autoimmune patients?

I am still awaiting patch testing by the dermatologist.

I should add that I faxed my blood work to my GP, and I was called and told he couldn't comment because it's not his area of expertise.

I'd try the GI doc next.

My MD works in a regular setting but his practice is part of an "Integrative Medicine" practice. So, maybe look for that sort of practice and ask the receptionist or intake person which one(s) of the doctors work with nutrition and autoimmune problems. Also see if the practice has a nutritionist on staff (who knows about Celiac Disease!)
