    I am a registered dietitian who works extensively with celiac patients. I'm heavily involved with 3 support groups, one adult group that I direct, another that I serve as nutrition advisor for, and the local chapter of R.O.C.K. My father has DH and my 4 year old daughter has CD, diagnosed by symptomatic improvement on the GF diet.
