Wayne Persky

Biography

Wayne Persky was born, grew up, and currently lives in Central Texas. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, College of Engineering, with postgraduate studies in mechanical engineering, mathematics, and computer science. He has teaching experience in engineering, and business experience in farming and agribusiness.

Faced with debilitating digestive system issues and numerous food sensitivities that developed in mid-life, he discovered that the mainstream medical community was generally unprepared to provide effective support and treatment for health issues that are caused by dietary problems. He was inspired to spend thousands of hours over more than a dozen years studying research articles in medical journals available on the Internet in order to understand and treat his own dietary issues.

He currently administrates an online microscopic colitis discussion and support forum, while continuing to research medical issues that are not adequately addressed by mainstream medicine. He is also the founder and president of the Microscopic Colitis Foundation.

En Español:

Wayne Persky nació, creció, y en la actualidad vive en el centro de Texas. Es graduado por la Universidad de Texas, en Austin, Facultad de Ingeniería, con estudios de posgrado en ingeniería mecánica, matemáticas e informática. Tiene experiencia docente en ingeniería, y experiencia empresarial en agricultura y agroindustria.

Después de la aparición de problemas de salud generales y del sistema digestivo severos a finales de los 90, se sometió a extensas pruebas clinicas, pero el gastroenterólogo falló en tomar biopsias durante una colonoscopia, e incluso falló en realizar la prueba de la enfermedad celíaca. Posteriormente, como era de esperar, fue informado por su gastroenterólogo que no le sucedía nada malo. Incapaz de encontrar una solución médica, se vio forzado a hacer uso de sus habilidades de investigación para descubrir métodos innovadores para resolver sus problemas de salud. Tras un estudio extensivo, identificó la posible causa de su problema como sensibilidades alimenticias. Tardó un año y medio en evitar todas las trazas de gluten, más un experimento de ensayo y error con otros alimentos, y mantener un exhaustivo diario, para identificar todos sus problemas con los alimentos. Pero, una vez eliminados todos de su dieta, consiguió recuperar su vida.

Ahora, administra un foro de conversación en internet sobre colitis microscópica, al mismo tiempo que sigue trabajando en su granja.
