Episode 116: Nadine Grzeskowiak, The Gluten Free RN


Nadine Grzeskowiak, RN, CEN, began her nursing career in emergency departments and trauma centers across Oregon in 1992. Then, in October 2006, she was diagnosed with Celiac disease. At the time Nadine received this correct diagnosis, she had been so ill she expected to only live six months – or less.

Additionally, she had been an ER nurse for 18 years and had consulted with many doctors but, until this point, had found no answer to what was killing her. Within just two weeks of being on a gluten free diet, Nadine’s health took a remarkable turn for the better and Nadine’s career also took a dramatic change.

In March 2007, after immersing herself in celiac disease research and data, she became a gluten intolerance/celiac disease educator. Nadine realized that she could help more people with this information then she ever could have in the emergency department.

Presently Nadine is a national expert and speaker for the recognition and treatment of gluten intolerance and celiac disease. Additionally she is also the CEO of three independent businesses, RN on call, Inc.,Gluten Free RN, and Celiac Nurse Consulting.

Nadine is first and foremost a patient advocate and an educator. Her mission is to educate people globally about gluten intolerance and celiac disease: empowering them to improve their health and quality of life with food. She is available for professional speaking engagements focusing on gluten intolerance and celiac disease and is also available for private consultations, professional speaking engagements, and seminars for healthcare professionals.
