stony-brook-childrens-300x130Long Island’s Stony Brook Children’s Hospital has opened a new Celiac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity Center. They specialize in diagnosing and treating children who suffer from celiac disease and gluten sensitivities.

The team is led by pediatric gastroenterologists and also includes highly trained nurse practitioners and a registered dietician. Having all of these people with years or expertise and experience of treating children with celiac disease in the one place makes it greatly accessible for patients. In this facility, patients and their families can receive help with diagnosis, treatment, management and support during the often challenging transition to a strict gluten-free diet.

“We take a multidisciplinary, whole child approach, which means that we not only treat the disease or the gluten sensitivity, but every aspect of your child’s health — the physical, social and emotional aspects of the disease.”

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there were a hospital or a center specializing in Celiac Disease in every state!
