    Hi Kelly,

    It would be great if you would add the American Celiac Disease Alliance to your listings. The web site is

    This is the only organization that unites other organizations and patients on a national scale. Primary mission is to advocate for the celiac patient through legislation, medical protocol, and diet.

    Many thanks. Beth

    Dr. Weinstock in St. Louis is wonderful for celiac disease and post-diagnosis care. He is one of the few gastros who understand that diagnosis isn’t the end of it. He’s treated me with Xifaxzn for SIBO. I’ve had another GI who had never heard of SIBO. They do research there too.

    Charleston, S.C. AT MUSC at Rutledge Tower
    Medical University of South Carolina
    For those of you who have a rash
    Dermatologist Dr. Maize Sr. on tenth floor at MUSC is very good at diagnosis.
    After over ten years of the rash and 7 doctors he diagnosed me with celiac on the first trip. Of course after diagnosis it was followed by biopsy or two for insurance purposes.

    Carl Fulton says:

    I’ve had Celiac for 22 years. Before moving to the Atlanta area I did not have problems finding gluten free foods, including prepared foods and ingredients. Not so here. I’m using mail order supplies, but the cost is extreme. Know of any local stores as a source?

The world has been my gluten-free oyster for 14 years now and I love sharing what I've learned in order to help others adapt to a gluten-free diet. Have a look around and feel free to leave a comment. Connecting with people like you is what has kept me going this long! Seriously.
