Celiac On Gma

Recommended Posts

I saw it too! I heard Robin say "the hidden medical reason women might feel bloated" (or something similar) and was hoping it was about celiac. I sat glued to the tv for 45 minutes waiting, and wouldn't you know it, the second I take a break to go to the bathroom, that's when it comes on!

I caught most of it though, and it seemed pretty good. I always get chills when something about Celiac is publicized, feels like it's a small victory. I"ll e-mail a big thank you too. I've also been meaning to e-mail Elizabeth Hasselback from the view, doesn't she have it?? It would be great if the women on The View could talk about it too, I mean heck, they talk about everything else under the sun, right?.....but if she hasn't already mentioned it, it may be a lost cause. Worth a shot though. Thought a before and after piccie of my little girl might help pull at the heartstrings a bit, or is that terrible? If it helped another parent, or anyone else suffering, it would be worth it. Anyway, I am proud of GMA, and I just hope this is the start of something good.

HI

There was a thread earlier about some one on the forum going to the View and during a break giving her a tee shirt about celiac disease or a note about it......

I really am sorry, I can't remember the whole issue.

If you have been dx'd and your daughter also, she might be interested as 'Gracie' is that her name, might have it...It's your call on whether to do this or not. If you do, might mention Dr. Tim's report today...but again,,,it's up to you

I didn't see the show, but my daughter's godmother called me to tell me about it, and then I hear about it here! So, I e-mailed them... I pointed out though that not all Celiacs lose weight, some are overweight...

Just wanted to say that the GMA exposure did a LOT for us, more than I imagined. I have a client who remembers seeing the story but didn't write down the name so she was thrilled I could tell her about it. She needed the info for a friend's daughter who has had every test in the book - for stomach aches - to no avail. Anyway, I sent her the links to the NIH and Univ. of Chicago Celiac program sites. The word is getting out people! Together we actually can make a difference.
