You beat me to the punch! I was just about to post about this....I'm so excited! I know it's not as good as having a whole Oprah tv show but it's better then nothing! I think you may be able to sign up for a three day or week trial for free on XM site but not certain about that. That's how I listened to the Celiac story on Martha Stewart's Sirius show for free.

p.s. okay you can sign up for a three day free trial. I just did it, it's easy and I use a 'trash' e-mail address that I just empty out every so often. I use it just for a reason such as this so my real addresses don't get crammed with unwanted ads. I figure if Oprah is finally doing something for us, we'd better show our appreciation to her or her staff at her radio show at least.

That is pretty ironic that Dr. Green is on an Oprah produced program. A year or two ago, the satelite sisters, who had an oprah magazine column got themselves into a stink in the celiac community for something dumb they said They made some comments about the parents of celiac children which of course upset everybody and had them writing into the magazine. Just funny that this segment is also an oprah production :)

Woo hoo! I've signed up for my free trial, and I'm all set. Plus, I just learned that there are archives of the shows so anyone who misses it will be able to catch it later. (With XM, of course)

I must be asking the obvious, but I don't see on the XM site or on the Oprah & Friends' site where it say that Thursday will include a discussion of Celiac. Someone please point me to that. It would be nice to be able to look ahead to what else may be coming, but I just see the "today" and "tomorrow" links.

When I saw the topic of this post I had a panic attack! You see, I listen to Oprah and Friends every day in my car. This past weekend my son brought my XM radio into the house while we were decorating for Christmas, and we never took it back to my car. Soooooooooo I have been without my XM radio and then I see this! I thought for sure that I missed it!

I will be listening for sure!

Thanks for the info!

Dr. Green's assistant is the one who put out the listserv notice about Thursdays show so it should be at the times specified. I can't wait! I'm not even going to answer my business phone from 1-2. It's like Christmas came early for me this year! All this great media exposure in such a short time. I think 2007 will be the year for that Celiac and gluten become household words. Not like everyone will have it but there are more of us that have Celiac than many other well know diseases combined. It's our turn to be in the medical spotlight so to speak!

The times listed in the post above are Eastern. If you follow the oprah.xm link above you'll see a link for Program Schedule. Times are listed in Eastern, but for those who don't want to do the math, there's even a drop-down and you can choose your time zone to adjust the schedule :D

Thanks for asking that question....hehehe, I always assume times listed anywhere reference "my" time zone. I would have missed it! We all know what they say about assuming! But I never learn.

I'm not sure but you may be able to listen in the archive files. I found the interview to be very well done. Dr Green really pushes the biopsy for dx which I don't think necessary if you have positive blood markers for Celaic but like everyone on this board, people can make their own decisions on that matter. He really talked about anemia (yea! that was me) patients who had a hard time getting dx'd if that is their only symptom and he spoke a lot about dental enamel defects and how they are often caused by Celiac as well. He talked about how the med schools here in the US are funded greatly by pharma companies so that's why dcos don't know the currect stats on Celiac as there is no pill for it. He said it was much harder to be on the gluten free diet here than in most of Europe.

After Dr. Green was off Dr. Oz's friend (forgot his name) came on and said that Dr. Oz almost eats gluten free from what he's observed and Dr. Oz said that anyone could probably benefit from eating gluten free as it's very healthy. Knowing my Celiac Mother loves her Snickers and chips I had to laugh at that comment. You can eat a ton of junk and still be gluten free. Dr. Oz also noted that he had never heard that infertility could be caused so that shocked him. He commented that the US is way behind Europe in getting the correct dx for people with Celiac and this is not the first time this has happened. Other conditions have had similar issues. Why does everyone always say we have the best medical care in the US? Do they just mean for cancer since we have more people with cancer than anywhere else on earth? I wonder.

For anyone who missed the Dr. Peter Green/Dr. Mehmet Oz broadcast, it has already been placed in the archives

http://www2.oprah.com/xm/moz/moz_archive.jhtml

I'm sure you'll need to do as Floridanative suggested earlier and sign up at least for the free 3 day trial. That's what I did to be able to listen to the broadcast live.

If I understood correctly, Dr. Green, thought the test was painless/inexpensive enough that he thought it would be worthwhile if the blood test for Celiac became a population test. (I haven't re-listened, did anyone else pick up on that?)

I'm not sure i heard that as there was so much good info but i did hear (i think) that all people w/the dx of IBS should get it done.

As it turns out, I was able to sign up (thanks Judy) and listen to the last 45 munutes of the 7PM show. It was good, I thought.

Dr. Green did say that the disease meets the criteria for widespread testing. He discussed how in parts of Italy, children are routinely tested.

I thought it was interesting that after Dr. Green left, Dr. Roisen and Dr. Oz were still taliking about Celiac, and they both didn't think it was a bad idea for someone with suspicious symptoms to try the gluten-free diet on their own. Dr. Green, while he was still there, said it was better to persue a diagnosis first.

Hi All!

Thank you for the Link to the interview. I don't get XM radio!! Anyway, at the top of the interview, there is a spot to click to "ask Dr. Oz" a question. I thanked him a million times over and asked him to please ask Oprah to do a show on Celiac Disease. If we all write to him, maybe we can get Oprah to do a show!!!!

If Oprah does a show, public awareness will be key!!!! If anyone can make the public aware of celiac disease, it's Oprah! Please write to Dr. Oz AND Oprah too!! (I've been for years!!) THank you!

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
