Some very good stuff happening here, however as I mentioned earlier, we do need an "accredited agent" to even get the script in the door at FOX! :( Kaiti have you had any luck?

Oh good, will have to catch the show tonight :P After I finished painting the sign I promised to do for the golf course :rolleyes:

You have to remember when you're writing the script, is that quite a few Celiacs become bleeders with the disease ... none of the right blood clotting vitamins. My poor hubby was accused twice of beating his wife because I was always covered in bruises :o:lol:

This idea is so cool. :D

Last night I was watching a show called (I think) 'medical mysteries'. True story about a man who kept ending up in the emergency room doubled over with excruciating stomache pain, tingling in his arms and legs numbness in his hands and feet, extremem fatigue, loss of memory, blurred vision. I can't remember what else. (symptoms sound familiar?) <_< I sat there in my family room practically crying watching this actor doing a reinactment of the tortorous stomache pains, remembering how I felt. I was mesmorized by the show, I just knew it was going to turn out to be celiacs. The ER doctors could never figure out what it was, they diagnosed him with lung cancer, did tons of tests, the whole gammit. Meanwhile this man is wasting away and obviously dying. It turns out that the patient figures it out for himself, (of course) he was being poisoned by a business partner, with arsenic, mercury, and lead.

I found it very interesting that he had to figure out the diagnosis himslf and that although he was literally being poisoned with toxic substances that many of his symptoms were just like having celiacs. HMMM...after all... we are being "poisoned" by gluten.

I would love to see the Dr. House show do a celiacs segment, I would definately make sure they know what they are talking about though. I wouldn't want them to mess it up like they did when someone came in complaining of fibromyalgia symptoms and House humiliated the guy by making it look like he was a nutcase. Like it was all in his head. <_<:angry: good luck

I'm for starting the script Sally...does everyone think it's a good idea to try this out? I can write some of it...we need characters, scene where this happens, and so forth...ideas anyone?I think I can get someone to present it I've been looking myself but if I can't find one my friend can hook me up with one I am sure so I think I have that part covered but I'll keep everyone posted. :D

Hmmm Celiac Disease is many times misdiagnosed so that would be an interesting show if they do it correctly. I will e mail fox right now.

I think it's a great idea. Celiac presents with so many diffirent symptoms that it would be interesting to see how he figures it out.

I registered at Fox.Com and posted the message about celiac disease. I briefly stated that it is misdiagnosed and the only treatment is diet. I am hoping that it is forwarded to the right people. If they are a lot of replies to that suggestion then it would be a reality

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
