  1. So funny I found him today and made an appointment, thanks for your help!

    I was on the Clan Thompson Celiac Website and they had a few Docs listed under Ask the Doctor...

    And this one was from Atlanta...Other than what is below I don't know of him personally...

    Dr. Jeffery Lewis received his undergraduate degree from Emory and graduated from Wake Forest University Medical School in 1989. From 1992-95 he was a fellow in gastroenterology at Harvard Medical School while training at Children's Hospital of Boston and the Massachusetts General Hospital - two of the highest rated teaching hospitals in the world. He stayed an additional year as a faculty member at Harvard in order to further enhance his research and clinical skills before returning to his native city of Atlanta, Georgia in 1996. He has been with the Children's Center for Digestive Healthcare, LLC since its inception in 1999.

    Dr. Lewis has a special interest in a variety of pediatric gastrointestinal disorders, including celiac disease. His projects have examined treatment of Hepatitis B, acid reflux, and autism. He currently is conducting research on eosinophilic esophagitis and the role of reflux in severe asthma. He has received private and National Institutes of Health funding for his work and has presented his research at national conferences and published in high quality medical journals.

    Dr. Lewis founded the only chapter of R.O.C.K. - Raising Our Celiac Kids - in Georgia. After just two years, there are almost a hundred families in the Georgia chapter. To learn more, send an email to celiacgroup@ccdhc.org.

    He is a fellow of The American Academy of Pediatrics and has served on several committees. Dr. Lewis has also served on a number of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Committees and is very active in the community as an advocate for children's health. He is currently the chief of gastroenterology for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. He is an active member of the North American Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition and is board certified in pediatrics and gastroenterology. When he's not hard at work for his patients or research, he likes to travel, play baseball or soccer with his kids, and spend time with his wife.

  2. In addition to a multi-vitamin, I give my kids calcium (Nutrition Now Soft Chews) and omega 3 (Rainbow Light Gummy Omegalicious.) The calcium is because I have one child who has a bone cyst repairing itself and another who avoids milk due to an automimmune response to casein - nothing to do with focus. But the omega 3s are to help with focus. Whether it works or not, I can't really say, but they love them, and I figure it can't hurt. I have purchased both products at grocery stores with good health food sections and in Whole Foods. The other thing I do to help my children with focus is to make sure they start the day with protein in their breakfast.

    I have tried a liquid and gummy with fish oil in it and he gagged, can you taste the fish oil in the gummy?
