House Tv Show Will Feature Celiac Disease

Recommended Posts

I saw last night's episode and the previews for next week. I doubt celiac will be mentionned more then once or twice. I'm thinking House might write it on his board as a current disease that either the mom or the baby has already.

Anxious to see it though.

I just came across this--it gives a preview of the 5/9 episode--

It will be interesting to see how it ties in. I don't think celiac will be a major part of the plot though. Some of the symptoms described in the Fox link could be celiac, but this statement wouldn't make sense if it was celiac:
"Kara’s husband learns some shocking information about his wife and struggles to deal with his newfound emotions towards her. "

Time will tell!!!!

I know--the more I find out, the more I think Celiac will be a sideline. But, we'll wait and see--any mention is better than none at all!

I also saw preview and was wondering how they are going to tie celiac disease to this womans problems. Although with all the reading I've done I know some people do get seizures. I do hope this show is good. I for one will be Tivo'g it so I can watch again.

It will be interesting to see what the "research" section of the website will reveal after tonight's episode.

Yeah, good luck moderators!

I meant that I hope it doesn't make celiacs look like crazy baby-drowning posessed crazies.

Hey all, just checked on the time in my neck of the woods, and the summary says this (on tvguide.com site)

"A mother almost drowns her newborn son when she has a seizure while bathing him, but that's not what's causing his serious illness. And the mother's "seizure" turns out not to be a seizure at all. Meanwhile, Chase begins working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit; Cuddy and Wilson have dinner together; and Foreman's back at work, though his mental acuity isn't all the way back."

So........hm.......maybe she has celiac? Tune in to find out! LOL! I will :D


EnteroLab test positive for gluten intolerence and 2 gluten intolerence and celiac genes

DQ2 and DQ3 sub type DQ7 in December 2005

Gluten-free since Enterolab test, December 2, 2005.

Lame Advertisement Test positive for gluten intolerence in Sept 2005.

THEN found out that my fathers mother had nontropical sprue, she passed away at 40 from (stomach) cancer, had holes in her intestines when they caught it. I had no idea....
