  1. Hi Helen
    In severel of your blogs you have talked about autoimmune diseases and asked if anyone also have a number of them like you to get in touch. I have 3 including suspected Celiac, be labeled as Non Gluten Celiac Intolerence. Like you I was already off the gluten before I was tested.
    Been reading your really interesting Blog and see that you are fairly local to me. Would love to know who your really helpful consultant specialist is as I don’t have one at the moment and Need a colonoscopy!yuk…
    Love to hear from you if you have time.

    • Hi Lynn
      Lovely to hear from you.
      I see Mr Jonathan Stenner based at East Surrey hospital & Dorking hospital Honestly Im not very impressed with him. He Never allows me time to speak or takes in what I have to say. I use diet to help me ( grain free / sugar free ) low cows milk etc I think he thinks I’m a nutter He eventually got me in for an Iron infusion But only because I went private in the end.
      I think there are a number of Gastro specialists locally . I think you have to be referred by your GP. All the best
