Celiac Sprue On "doc"
0

7 posts in this topic

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!!

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.

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:

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
