For those interested, as of 1:00p PST this article is the "Most Viewed" and "Most Emailed" article in today's WSJ!!

I'm glad to read that a lot of you are emailing the reporter who wrote the article - there's nothing better than postive feedback.

WOW! :)

George



Yep, George, you are the personification of the old adage that one person can make a difference. Again, kudos to your efforts.

I think that's a fabulous way to get the public to actually read the article - attracts the "theory conspiracy"-type curiosity in many people, not to mention nudging into the area of patriotism in the comparison of the US versus Europe. (Given the recent news stories, I won't even go there! ;-) )

Good to see it's getting out there!

Did you all see the figures for how common celiac is in a few countries, on the actual article on the website? Celiac is more common both in Finland and in Italy than in Ireland... I bet it's fairly common elsewhere in the Mediterranean as well. Just to say, that only irish people get celiac is really a myth...

Thank you so much for posting the article, and for pushing for it in the first place!

For what it's worth, as of 10:00p PST Sunday Dec 11 according to the WSJOnline statistics, this celiac article from Friday is the number 3 "Most emailed" article of all articles within the last week and number 7 for all articles within the last month. The reporter seems to have attracted lots of interest in celiac - hopes it helps raise the awareness.

Hi All :)

My husband is "Mr. Martin" and I am sure the WSJ editors in NYC cut some addtional info about him out as his interview with the author was about 40 minutes long. As many of you know, Mike has been plagued with other health problems over the years that stem from his misdiagnosed celiac.

We were very excited to be included in this story and we were caught off guard that it was finally published on 12/9 (the interview happened over a month ago). The photo is from our 2004 25th Wedding Anniversary.

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Deb, many thanks to your husband for participating in the WSJ celiac story. What a great opportunity to help spread celiac awareness.

Speaking of celiac in the media, in attempts to get more celiac coverage in the media to increase awareness keep in mind that one of the media's primary criteria for selecting topics is business based: how many customers would read, listen, view, etc. When there is an article such as this in a rather prestigious publication and it gets such high visibility (see my earlier post regarding how high it has rated in "Most Emailed" on WSJOnline) it can provide a good "attention getter" when you try to promote coverage in other media. (e.g. I have emailed the article to NPR's "Talk of the Nation Science Friday", one of my favorite radio programs, highlighting it's popularity at WSJ and suggested celiac as a Science Friday segment topic.) We need to keep up the momentum in spreading celiac awareness.

Deb -- Sorry about hubby. Many thanx! And God bless you.
You both have helped change and bring about awareness for celiac's, people and doctors.

We need to keep up the momentum in spreading celiac awareness.


I agree!

Any ideas?

Don't laugh. Call me silly.
I think I'm going to send the article in my Xmas cards this year.
So people will get 'it'?!
