As The Food Doc Journal resumes I would like to thank all of the readers of this blog past and present. I apologize that there have not been any recent posts but that is changing. After a significant break in posting due to personal and professional reasons, I have decided to resume posting regularly. The Food Doc Website, www.thefooddoc.com has also been updated and/or revised, though it is still a work in progress. Any of you who have done any online writing, website development etc. surely can relate to the amount of time and effort required to do such work. As a busy physician who sees patients five days a week, father of five children, a new grandfather, I am constantly time challenged. However, the extent of food and digestive related health issues, increasing awareness and also confusion about food allergies and intolerance, IBS, colitis, and two conditions that I have a great deal of interest in Celiac-Gluten Sensitivity and Mastocytic Enterocolitis or Mastocytic Inflammatory Bowel Disease (MIBD), and the requests from patients and those who have followed my online writing, has led me to decide that to resume posting information to help others struggling with these issues.
To get started I am sharing online two posters I was selected to present at one of our national GI meetings, the American College of Gastroenterologists. These posters summarize my research data collected on 200 patients with Mastocytic Enterocolitis or Mastocytic Inflammatory Bowel Disease and a group of patients with allergic esophagus or Eosinophilic Esophagitis. I also have more information on both conditions at my website www.thefooddoc.com.
Please check the blog and my website soon as I begin to add some very interesting posts on the newest information on food allergy and intolerance, Celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity, leaky gut, colitis, mastocytic enterocolitis, IBS, probiotics and allergic or eosinophilic esophagitis. I will also share my clinical experience diagnosing and treating patients with food and gut related health issues on a daily basis.
