You better believe I signed that petition.

Jennifer Esposito is really going to battle for all Celiacs here. There have been numerous posts about people losing their jobs and personal relationships from Celiac symptoms.

Dr. Drew was a jacka$$ for asking such personal questions of her about medical tests and symptoms. He said he is a doctor, but he proved himself ignorant of Celiac disease.

That was so awful, I wonder if celebrity addiction "doctor" Drew Pinsky he thought she just had a "celebrity eating disorder" and he was the celebrity doctor who thought he could make a celebrity $ buck off of it. :angry:

Now in its third season, "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" was critically acclaimed by the addiction community for pulling back the veil of secrecy about what goes on in rehabilitation programs. "Sober House," which chronicles the sober living process, began airing in January 2009 and is now in it's second season. "Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew" looks at the struggles and treatment of those dealing with serious sex addictions.

    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
    • Thank you so much for responding, it's so hard to go on this journey of questions and Drs. I really appreciate the time you took to respond. God bless you 💖
    • Do you have copies of your blood test results? Can you post them? Don't forget to list the reference ranges. Is the TTG the only celiac test they did?  Do you have a copy of your pathology report? Get it if you don't. How many biopsies did they take & from what areas? Were you eating gluten right up until the biopsy?
    • I got them on the back side of my knees too. All the literature points out knees & elbows but doesn't mention the "behind the knee" portion of your leg. I eventually got them ON the knees itself but that was one of the last places to present. I also got them on the inside bend of my arm instead of the elbow and just like the knees, it eventually presented on my elbows. Not to be forgotten; the literature also states it can present anywhere on the body. If you found those links I've posted about how a dh biopsy is done correctly then print them out & take them with you to SHOW them. Any derm should be able to follow the directions or they should turn in their license.  As to them saying herpes, well duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, dh does have a herpes like presentation. That's why they call it dermatitis herpetiformis! Remember, they work for YOU, not the other way around. Insist. Make sure you're still eating gluten. Let us know how it goes. The best of luck to you!
