I was sitting in my family room last night watching the news on Fox channel 5 when they started talking about this misterious disease that is caused by
eating. <_< Hmm.. I said oh please, let it be about celiacs. Low and behold it was!!! :lol: They did a pretty good job on the whole article, but here's the great news....remember a few months back when we were all talking about sending letters to the show 'HOUSE' on the Fox network to see if they would do a show on celiacs? Well, they finally are!!!!! We must have made an impact!! I didn't catch when they said the episode would be on (I was too busy whooping and hollering) :lol: but I know it will be soon. I can't wait!! The only thing I noticed about the article on the news that wasn't good was when they were talking about symtpoms. Once again only diarreah and weight loss were mentioned. What about constipation and weight gain?

Anyway, We'll take what we can get. I am sooo excited!! :D

If anyone else saw this and caught when th HOUSE show will be on please let me know.

Thanks, Wendy

That's great. I emailed them about a month ago. When they air the show, everyone should send appreciative emails. Just flood them.

Yeah, really. Hopefully they do a good job. I like "House" though. I'll have to make sure to watch regularly so I don't miss it. That's really cool!

Does anyone know when that show airs? I've never seen house and hadn't even heard of it, but I'll watch a celiac episode--just to see how it's portrayed and stuff, even though I won't know who any of the characters are.

Tammy was trying to find out, but she says you can't find out from the web site. So ... she is going to tape every show so she doesn't miss it. If I miss it, she is going to send me the tape :lol: But I will be trying to catch it.

House is a medical show where the head doctor "House" keeps coming up with strange diagnosis. Try watching one, you might like it :rolleyes:

Ahh...when is the house on? Oh, and I have a question...I checked the site, looking for information on when it might be on (I'm taping this episode tonight just in case) and I found someone had written a 66 chapter story on a Fox message board in which House diagnosed someone as having Celiac. Is that someone from here?

I still don't know if it was the celiac one--didn't look @ the tape yet. Did anyone watch it so they can tell us if it was or not?
