Re: Anemia and Gluten Intolerance

Thanks for the info, I will look into it further.
My GP is Great!! She's my 6th GP and we finally found someone who does everything in her power to solve problems and then last week she moved to America.
Once again I am Without GP so i now need to find someone else. I have quite the team of specialists, some good, some not so that i ask for advice too, so i shall look into it and talk to them and let you know if anything comes out of it

Oh, how very frustrating to say the least! And yes, it does take some time, and trial and error to find a good one. I always thought I had a "good" one until I had blood pressure issues, and all of the med side effects that come with that.

The medical community in the US acknowledges that we have a Lyme epidemic along the coastal areas in the NE (there is some thought that Lyme carriers fall off of migratory birds), and in some parts of the midwest...they also have documented cases of this disease in all 50 states in our union. Despite this, some of the best clinics/specialists in our country have the worst reputation for diagnosing and/or treating this disease.

You live in a country that is still denying a problem even though evidence of Lyme exists there...keep that in mind when picking the brains of your medical team...if you can, do some independent research as it helps to go "armed" with sources of data to back up your case, should you think you have one.

Good luck, and good health!

Re: Anemia and Gluten Intolerance

jazzabella - did you know your gp was moving to America? sometimes one good doctor knows another good doctor and can refer someone else equally as good. I'm sure you have learnt a lot so as to enable you to weed out the bad gp's.

I couldn't find a good gp or specialist. I had a range of symptoms but my main one which bothered me was abnormal hair shedding. I found myself a Trichologist after doing loads of research. My research and new found knowledge helped me pick what i felt was a good one, and he was. He knew more than all the gp's put together and diagnosed my problems.

An excellent suggestion, which I am going to use, by the way.
