Celiac.com 02/07/2014 - Emmy-winning actor, Dan Bucatinsky, best known to his fans for playing journalist James Novak on the popular ABC drama "Scandal," just shared a little dietary secret.
For more than ten years, Bucatinsky has lived with celiac disease, and relied on a strict gluten-free diet to remain healthy, and to thrive in his profession.
In a phone interview with Healthy Hollywood, Bucatinsky explained how he was diagnosed with celiac disease right after his father's death.
Even though he was overwhelmed at first with all of the hidden gluten in so many grocery items, Bucatinsky rose to the occasion and took action.
"Once I knew that I had celiac disease, even if I didn’t feel any symptoms, I knew that inside my body was an autoimmune disease that had to be treated and I cleaned the gluten right out of my diet.”
