Flagstaff Celiac Support Group
Meetings: The third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. Meetings are usually held at the Flagstaff Medical Center (east campus) cafeteria on the first floor of the main hospital. Go in the entrance next to the cafeteria and look for the group in the seating area to the left.
Meeting Recap: Al joined us this month. He has been experiencing gastro-intestinal problems and has had all sorts of tests but is wondering if his doctors are missing celiac disease. Based on our discussion it sounded like he could be lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, or both. Many of us had experienced the same symptoms and could relate to what he was telling us. Susanna suggested that he talk with his gastroenterologist and get the blood test for celiac disease while he is still eating wheat. She also asked him to come back next month and report to the group.
Next Meeting: The next meeting will be May 16.
