I wonder how many times "House" can misdiagnose a celiac disease patient??? :lol:
Any takers on a letter writing campaign to see if they'll do an episode on our lovely affliction??

I'm sure with over 200 symptoms and side effects they ought to be able to write some interesting script! Hey the first fatality I've seen on the show was from Rabies! :blink: I'm a huge fan and I know it's growing in popularity!

I nominate celiac3270 and Kaiti for the form letter, and we can all add our own personal experience to it! :D See, I'm the idea person here... then I like to delegate! :lol: Seriously though, I think it would be very interesting to see! B)

Thoughts...???

. . .the same could be said forany hospital show.

So, you want to send a letter to them asking for a thing on Celiacs?

I'd be afraid they would mess up and say some misconception.

I think it's a challenging enough disease in itself that they would do a fairly good job of it. It would certainly be interesting! :P

We could also encourage the writers to research this board, even do a poll such as some of the many researchers have done!

The whole premise of the show is at least three mis-diagnosis'... :blink: how many celiac disease patients go on and on being told they have everything under the sun before they find it's celiac disease?? :angry:

The drama of course would have to come from the extreme, immediately life threatening situations such as those who pass out from doing a gluten challenge, or have extreme cases of DH...

Since I am relatively symptom free, it would be good for those who have extreme symptoms to give some input!

Let's hear some ideas! :D

how about the time I went to the emergency room thinking I was having a heart attack, and while I was there I couldn't stop vomiting !!!!!! fun fun fun!!! Of course they determined I wasn't having a heart attack, but since they didn't suspect celiac they said I just had a stomach virus and the "heart" pain was just "anxiety"

this was about 6 months before my diagnosis of celiac.

Not to make light of what must have been an extremely distressing experience... :( BUT that is exactly what we're looking for! :D Maybe they'd even do a "casting call" on the board! :lol:

what about someone who has gluten "shock" and doesn't realize they have celiac and goes to the ER a few times and and then the common factor is eating something with gluten and a doctor picks up on it and orders tests done and it turns out they are celiac and then he explains it.....ok I have never seen this show so I may be way off on my idea but just a thought. :D

Oh Kaiti, you have to see it! :lol: House is the kind of Dr. real Dr.'s love to hate, he starts treatment before he's got a conclusive diagnosis, and then when the patient almost dies (or worse! :blink: ) then he looks for something else! There's a lot of humor, sarcasm and drama in the show!

Btw, glad you just posted again, I noticed the last post was #666! :blink: :lol:
