Celiac On The View

I have Tivo and I put celiac in as a keyword to look for so I would know if it was ever mentioned on a show. Yesterday, it came up that The View is having a segment on celiac on 3/14. I used to watch The Vew but now I hardly recognize any of the people on it but I think one of them has celiac. Should be interesting to see what it is about. Hopefully, it will be good publicity.

How exciting! I just tivo'd it as well and sure enough, it's in there. They must have had such a great response from Elisabeth's previous blurb on the show about Celiac that they decided to make an entire segment. I can hardly wait to see what is discussed. This is so great. Celiac's unite! It really does make a difference when we all write in and respond when publicity is generated about this topic. I don't think it's that far off when Celiac will be as common of a term as diabetes. Life is good!

It's Elizabeth Hasselbeck who's got celiac. There was a segment a while back when Budweiser came out with RedBridge on it:

Thanks for the info :rolleyes:

But I have 2:1 odds that it takes Rosie about 5 minutes to make some insensitive or rude comment pertaining to weight loss :(

She really dominates the show, doesn't she.

Yes, she does. It makes it hard to watch. THey are all just rude to each other, with the exception of Elizabeth. Hopefully, they'll actually let her talk during the segment. She usually doesn't get a word in edgewise...

There's an interesting article on http://www.celiacchicks.com that includes information on this and a short "interview"with Elizabeth; she says why it took her so long to come "out" with having Celiac. I tried to pull it up to post it here but it didn't work...sorry!

If anyone can cut & paste that article on here that would be great. I couldn't get it to open.

I think the CeliacChicks website is down right now. I couldn't get on either.

I just read on the View's website that Susie Essman is going to be the guest co-host on Wednesday's show.

Susie is a good friend of Joy's and a Celiac.

The CeliacChicks site is up again - http://www.celiacchicks.com ...

The article is the first thing on the home page (dated March 8th). It appears that there are still some issues - the pictures didn't come up as they did before - but the text is there...

That makes so much sense. For anyone who wasn't able to pull it up, Elizabeth was self-diagnosed and she didn't feel it was responsible to say she has a disease when she wasn't sure she even had it. She later did a gene test that confirmed celiac.

If I were in the public eye, I'd probably do the same thing.

Can't wait to see this segment. Having guests will probably make things a lot more respectful.

Does anyone else think that with Rosie's anger issues, she should get some testing done?

I agree. I can't wait to hear her story--all the details. I have DirectTV, and on the schedule grid for Wednesday's View, it actually says "Celiac Disease"! Wow.

Yea, Rosie worries me sometimes :unsure:

Remember when Rosie had her own show and she always used to refer to a nervous stomach? I'd bet she has some sort of food intolerance (not necessarily gluten of course) or maybe even something like candida.

Back to the View segment, I have a suggestion for us all just in case it doesn't turn out the way we'd like it to. Certainly I hope it's the best Celiac segment we've ever seen but just in case it's not, I hope we'll come here to vent our frustrations and not slam the show directly. The way to further our cause is to court those in power. After the piece, if I think they left out something important about Celiac I'll calm down, then send a thank you e-mail to Bill Gedde (producer) and suggest info they should include if they do another Celiac segment. Send Elisabeth a note too if you like but she doesn't have as much power as one might assume so please don't forget Bill, her producer. Click on The Viewmaster to e-mail him. It does make a difference when we flood them with e-mails but they have to be the right e-mails or we'll only hurt ourselves in the end.

Hopefully with both Alice Bast and Dr. Green on the show, the important parts about the disease will be touched on. Keep in mind that if anyone googles celiac this site is the first to come up usually so if Dr. Green says you have to get the biopsy for a dx (which he probably will), don't worry about that. People will come here and decide what's best for them with the help of the great people here. Together we can make a difference but we have to think about how our actions can help and hurt our cause.

I just watched it and thought it was excellent. Dr. Green gave a very complete synopsis of Celiac Disease, and said that the genetic testing was appropriate for family members if a relative has been diagnosed. He said, "None of us digest gluten very well. We did not evolve to digest gluten." A number of issues were covered, including DH, the common issues of "IBS" misdiagnosis', etc. We're very lucky to have people like him, and Alice Bast, at the forefront of the battle to get this disease recognized on a wider scale and slated for futher research.

The whole tone of the segment was upbeat and positive, and there was a large table filled with Gluten-free products on the set, which they discussed.

I am very happy that they did such a good job today - it was very uplifting to see. Bravo!

I agree! Dr. Green doesn't have the most energetic speaking manner so for him this was a wonderful effort! He touched on many important points in a short time. Infertility will get the attn. of many I'm sure as will the term IBS since we know so many out there with that label of IBS really have Celiac. The food table looked great as well and it showed we can eat plenty of great tasting foods - they're just free of gluten. My only criticism was that Alice wasn't given time to share her personal tragic story of delivering an 8 month still birth.

Now I think we all need to e-mail the View's producer (Viewmaster on their site) and thank him for such an informative segment which shows you can live a healthy life free of gluten and not miss out on great tasting foods! Let's hope this is just the tip of the Celiac iceberg!

Can I just say that I LOVE DR. GREEN! :)

I would hug that man if I ever get the chance to meet him. Between him and Dr. Fasano, I truly love these guys!

Did anyone notice the part where he talked about infections and gluten........very interesting, and what I have suspected is my problem.

Bravo to Susie, Elisabeth (who, I swear, is pregnant), Alice, and Dr. Green.

(My boss let me watch in his office...how great is that!)

Laura, How nice of your boss! :)

I thought it was very good. Dr. Green was great, as usual.

I loved it when Susie Essman sopke out about the drug companies, and when Dr. Green said that people weren't actually meant to eat wheat. :o

It was so nice to have them "speaking our language" for a little while :D

    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      I too have more neuro than gastro symptoms...its so weird. I hope we both find answers soon!
    • Silent Celiac or Non-digestive symptoms
      My celiac diagnosis started with me seeking medical attention for an ongoing migraine problem. This lead to MRI's that showed white spots on my brain which lead to blood work that showed a positive ANA (1:640) and a trip to the rheumatologist. The rheumatologist suggested the biopsy and a referral to a GI specialist after he felt confident that I didn't have lupus. The funny thing is that I don't have severe tummy troubles. I have some bloating occasionally and gas along with differing bowel patterns but that's about it. The most annoying and troublesome symptoms for me are migraines, fatigue and sometimes I get a little achy. My results for the prometheus test were high, blood anti-bodies were present and my biopsy revealed Grade B2 villi damage (the worst classification according to Corazza, Roberts, Ensari). Anyway I guess what I am wondering is how long after being "glutened" will I have a migraine, vitamin deficiency or other neurological symptom so that I will know that I am in trouble? I feel like if I had the tummy trouble to go with this I would know when I have eaten something that has been cross-contaminated. I just want to heal soon and not risk further intestinal damage or lymphoma. Thanks for your reply!
    • ANA and Celiac
      Does anyone know if the positive ANA(1:640) I had back in January could be connected to my celiac diagnosis two weeks ago? Does ANA change with celiac or just other AI issues? Thanks!
    • Confused
      Hello,  I'm new to the forum and new to gluten/celiac. I had some abdominal discomfort a couple weeks ago and my doctor (Kaiser) at the last second said he'd also test my blood for gluten issues. Bottom line, last Sunday night i get the results which I didn't quite understand. TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 1.06 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.91 Index <=0.90 Index Then i get an email from him saying you tested celiac positive, I'm referring you to a dietitian for a gluten free lifestyle (head exploded). After scouring the internet for days, I've read my fair share of good and bad celiac articles. Right now it seems like kaiser just wants me to go gluten-free which is fine if I have celiac disease, but I'm not sure what the numbers indicate or how bad they are, or how much potential damage has been done. Has anyone gone through a similar process? Do I need to ask for further tests?  I'm still in shock a bit I guess but really feel like I'm in the dark and reading everying on WebMD and other celiac sites gives me hope and crushes my dreams at the same time. By the way I'm 35 and male, if that matters.   Thanks
    • Teff Intolerance?
      Udi's brand also uses sodium carboxymethyl cellulose in many products, a food additive emulsifier that may cause intestinal symptoms. Emulsifiers help stabilize the bread and give it a great texture but the additive may also possibly be emulsifing the intestinal lining. Our intestinal cell walls are lined with electrically active proteins that are shaped somewhat like bottle brushes with a stiff backbone protein handle topped by electrically active bristles that act like magnets that repel each other and help keep the tube shape of the intestine open. So food additive emulsifiers may be disrupting the ability of the intestinal walls to stay open. Xanthum gum is also an emulsifier.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
