Hey all,

Was watching Doc tonight with Billy Ray Cyrus. I don't know if that's a show everyone gets or not. But anywho, they had a girl on there whose parents and Doc thought had anorexia/bulemia. Nobody believed her, until she was relentless in her plea for innocence. Doc thought it would be wise to do more tests, and decided to do a biopsy. Sure enough....it was celiac sprue!!! Man, did that story ever ring true. I was accused of being anorexic, bulemic, NUTTY.....you name it. Only that period of time for me went on for nearly two years. This girl only had to wait a week. LOL.

Good, good show!!

Celiac, gastroparesis, PCOD, heart problems, pacemaker.

Diagnosed 7-12-04 via bloodwork. Never had a biopsy, doc didn't think it was necessary (said I would know just by going gluten-free).

gluten-free two weeks after diagnosis (and my last bag of Oreos). :-)

Wow! That's wonderful! I'm so sorry you've gone through that. But people are really starting to "get it" out in the real world.

I love "Doc"! I was so sad when they cancelled it. I'll be sure to watch all the reruns (again) to catch that one.

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

Oh darn. I don't know the name of the episode. :( But it's one where Beverly is pregnant (BIG)...and Doc has his hair cut short. I think it's one of the latest ones. I don't think Billy Cyrus is a good actor....but it is a good, clean show. It's something I can let my kids watch without being paranoid. Anyway....I'm sure they'll show it again. Or you might even be able to purchase the whole series of Docs on video, I dunno. ?

BRCoats - I'm sorry to hear you went through that.

I too am still watching House for the Celiac episode. I really enjoy the show but maybe we need to try and e-mail the producers to get to our topic. I'm sure they'll jump right on it :lol: :lol: :lol:
