Dr. Stuart Berezin is the Chief of Pediatric Gastroenterology at Children’s and Women’s Physicians of Westchester. He is the Director of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Associate Professor at New York Medical College. He attended the University of Pennsylvania and is a Graduate of the Hahnemann Medical College. His special interests include celiac disease, chronic abdominal pain and inflammatory bowel disease.

“With the proliferation of information surrounding gluten as the trigger for gastrointestinal symptoms in susceptible children, Dr. Berezin says that it’s now easier for patients to stay on a gluten-free diet. Dietary choices have markedly improved in recent years, he says, making it easier for parents to nourish their children with healthy food options — while avoiding gluten altogether.”

For children who are diagnosed with celiac disease and those who exhibit symptoms, there is no substitute for a healthy diet that excludes gluten, Dr. Berezin says. “It’s crucial to stay on a gluten-free diet,” he stresses. “Parents of patients who suffer from gluten intolerance need to meet with a dietitian, he says, to help guide them through the maze of healthy foods, and foods that might pose gastrointestinal problems.”
