Just tuned in Larry King Live and a woman named Deborah Scaling Kiley on her lead in was talking about people and survival and she actually mentioned people who survive celiac disease. I wish he had asked about it, but was shocked to hear it mentioned.

Sally--I did Tivo it and forgot about it till now! I just checked--the show was about people who survived life-threatening situations. The woman you mentioned was talking about her boat sinking and being attacked be sharks. 2 of her companions didn't survive. I heard no mention of Celiac....

Hey Patti:

Can you listen to it one more time. If I heard it right she said it at the same time she said something about many people surviving different things and I am just sure she mentioned celiac. If not maybe I am finally losing it!

Thank you Patti for finding the transcripts. I just read the transcripts and wow quite a story. It is amazing to say the least, I remember when this happened back in the early 80s. I also read her first book.

From what I can gather the person with celiac disease didn't come out on the show. This is what was said...

--------------------------------------------------------------------

""""KING: boy, that's all from "I Shouldn't Be Alive," a weekly on the Discovery Channel. Our guest is Deborah Scaling Kiley, author of, "No Victims, Only Survivors."

You have a foundation with that name, right?

KILEY: We're working on it right now. My lawyers are establishing it right now. It's really my goal, through this book, to really work with people and take them from that victimization into being survivors.

I tell stories of many different survivors here, and breast cancer, celiac's disease, there's diabetes. Yossi's story, who is here tonight, is also in there. """"

--------------------------------------------------------------------

If Deborah “Debbie” Kiley Blackmon speak of celiac disease in her book -- we need her as our celiac disease spokesperson!

I'll link her web site and if anyone wants to write and ask her more questions... www.thesinking.com/ Click on the link 'the author' then choose 'eMail the author'

I thought that's what I heard, wow thanks for finding the transcript. I wish he had asked about the celiac, but I think it's a good thing that it was mentioned.

If no -one wants to write to her and ask -- I will... Just let me know...

I remember her story and read her first book about the boat the 'trashman'. I know what it feels like being at the mercy of the ocean. I'm a boater, have been my whole life, learned to swim before I learn to walk. And I've made the same trip from the NE to south Florida by yacht, and the gulf stream crossing many many times... and can imagine what it must have been like for them. I can't imagaine being a celiac and a drift for days with nothing... I've been in 12' seas and no navigational tools, only a compass in the middle if a fierce storm.

It's not clear by Larry Kings interview who was the Celiac...

Deborah Scaling Kiley wrote me back -- Celiac is in her NEW BOOK. Her dear friends daughter almost died from celiac disease. They used her "The Ten Lessons For Survival" - in the book.

We have to get a copy. I'm ordering one...

If you want me to post a link to amazon, just ask and I will.

my daughter almost died, if she hadn't been diagnosed in time she would have, she dropped 50% of her body weight in less than a month, at a year old she weighed less than she did when she was born. The doctors thought that we had caught it too late, they thought they were going to send her home to die. :(

Lister, make no mistake, people have died from this disease..... Undiagnosed celiac kills......

Even diagnosed, there are cases (and complications), google up refractory celiac sprue, or ulcerative jejunitis.

Every person's response to the gluten free diet is different. Some people experience immediate improvment, others it takes over 2 years for the healing to begin...... Depends on the severity of the damage, I guess......

sorry this kinda went off topic. yeah i had immediat improvments the first week but then i was back to where i was the next week really strange its like some days im improving and some days im getting worse. as for damage and me, the only thing my doctor has found was subsarean folds in my small intestine, so it looks like im in pretty good shape. o bye the way if anyone is looking for a copy of the book on lary king live, go to well pm me and i will give u a website where you can find a free copy of the book, its really good i just started reading it today, also the site has gluten free cookbooks and what not i just dont want to publicly post it
