Two-Part Podcast Series: When Your Doctor Won't Test for Celiac Disease
We know that many family members run into pushback from their doctors when asking to be tested for celiac disease after learning about their genetic risk. Although we discuss family member testing during these podcasts, we think the tips from Anne Lee, EdD, RDN, LD, Professionals Manager at Dr. Schar USA, Inc., would be helpful for anyone going through the celiac disease testing and diagnosis process.
Listen to this two-part podcast series from Beyond Celiac, featuring Anne Lee, to learn what helpful tips and advice you can use if your doctor is hesitant to test you for celiac disease. Listen to part one to learn how to become an educated patient and check out the resources below to help guide the conversation during your next doctor’s appointment. Then, tune in to part two to learn where to draw the line when it comes to doctor pushback and what to do if your doctor doesn’t follow the proper testing guidelines.
Note: At the time this podcast was recorded, Beyond Celiac was known as the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness. Learn more about the name change here.
