It was a good show but the whole hour wasn't about the Murphys. Strange, but the third story sounded more like somebody with celiac than the Murphy story.

Yeah Richard, come to think of it, I did too. I identified more with her case than with the little boy. Of course, I was DX at a much older age than he. Just shows how symptoms of celiac disease get mistaken for other things....

Even Peter Greene said the boy's symptoms were very atypical. To me the real outrage was that the mother's doctor told her not to worry about family members having it, and that it took doctors so long to say, hey, she has celiac, maybe we'd better throw that test in even though this is an unusual symptom.

I havent seen this show, but have heard a lot about it. Its my understanding that the boy had a seizure(s)? I had a seizure (my one and only) about 3 months ago and then was diagnosed Celiac about 1 month after that. Neither my top notch neurologist nor my celiac specialist has been able to tell me if they are connected. Did this show discuss the seizure aspect at all, that any of you can remember?

I dont really remember them getting into the seizure aspect. Did he have a seizure? I saw the episode about a month ago...I dont remember if he actually had a seizure...he would kind of go into a catatonic (sp?) state. It was like he was zoned out...is that a seizure? :unsure:

hmmm... I think it would probably be classified as a type of seizure. There are many different levels. Sometimes you are awake and conscious when its happening - sometimes you are not. I was not - I had a grand mal. I just find it all to be waaaay too coincendental if the seizure and the celiac disease were not related. Anyway - I will have to watch the show - i just keep missing it. Damn! these are the times when i really really wish i had Tivo.

I was cat sitting for my parents when this was supposed to be on and they have this channel, but I don't. So I rushed over there in time to see it, found the channel amongst the hundreds of channels and the show was actually on! I was so excited, I sat through the first two stories and they obviously weren't celiac, then the third one came on and I'm like "this must be it" and the symptoms were tired, diarrhea, but it wasn't celiac! I don't know what happened, but it was obviously a different episode.

    • Washing Dishes
      Gluten is a very sticky protein that cannot be removed easily. Non porous items can be washed safely and effectively, being very careful to throughly rinse, use a dedicated sponge/washcloth to wash. If washed by hand wash and rinse under hot running water not in a sink of water if you don't have a dedicated gluten free kitchen. My kitchen is totally gluten free and I still rinse under running water. I attempted to use the dishwasher for the first time yesterday and I feel like I've been glutened so I'm not sure if it's safe or not. There was no gluten containing dishes in it, but it's a rental house so God knows how the previous tenants used it and whether there may be any lingering gluten in it. I also have other issues that cause a lot of the same problems so I'm going to keep trying to use it for a few days and see if I continue to feel glutened or not. As far as counter tops, sinks etc, any non porous surfaces can be wiped clean, but it takes multiple wipe downs with multiple sponges. Thoroughly wipe down and rinse out the sink to rid it off any lose gluten particles. The same thing I did when first going gluten free. Only the kitchen I had then had laminated counter tops that were all scratched up. There is no getting gluten out of those kind of counter tops or cracks around the sink, etc. The ONLY way to possibly destroy/remove gluten from surfaces it's stuck in is to heat it above temperatures most things cannot tolerate and not all ovens can reach. You're looking at like 600°-700° F for a minimum of 30 min. So some stuff can be effectively cleaned in the self cleaning mode of an oven if it has one. Most cookware and utensils cannot tolerate those temperatures though and it's impossible to heat counters and other items to that temperature. Therefore being in a blended house is very risky if not done right. When I went gluten free everyone in my house went gluten free. Except the fish, you can't find gluten free fish food. My husband who shouldn't eat gluten anyway is gluten free and all our animals are on a grain free diet. Even my snake is gluten free since I breed my own feeder mice and feed them a gluten free organic diet. 
    • to biopsy or not?
      A small suggestion........for banana bread, try the King Arthur gluten free banana bread mix.  Yeah, I know......it's a mix but sometimes, time is short and a mix works well.  My husband and I were shocked at how good this is!  it rose up high and beautiful in the oven and has a really good banana flavor to it.  Really....give it a try.  It is so easy to make also! http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/gluten-free-banana-bread   The ATK cookbook is a keeper for every Celiac!
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Yup.....what she said!  In non-porous materials such as stainless steel or aluminum pans, a good washing is all you need to make the pan safe to use.
    • Hawaiian-style BBQ Shrimp (Gluten-Free)
      Mayonnaise is the key to this recipe, which delivers tasty, tangy, golden grilled shrimp. View the full article
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
