Local Dieticians who specialize in the GF Diet

When I was first diagnosed, I was sent to a dietitian. Back 12 years ago, dietitians really knew relatively little about following the gluten free diet. My dietitian gave me a hand out that had four or five recipes on it and told me not to eat gluten. When I asked her to define gluten, she stumbled a bit and then handed me more pieces of paper with information on gluten. Unfortunately, the information contained on these pages was far from complete and made my first grocery shopping trip a very emotional and frustrating ordeal.

I have since found there are a number of local dietitians who are very capable of helping patients navigate the gluten free diet. I really think it is important to work with a dietitian to learn about not only eating gluten free, but how to eat healthful foods. There are a number of prepared GF products do not contain fiber and/or protein.
