Just watching it, it has to do with a mom and baby that have celiac and the complications that can occur. It was actually quite sad, but it's on tonight.

"blood work show's a disease called celiac,

but it can't be that because it's rare!"

Diagnosed via blood and biopsy 2003

Not a medical professional just a silly celiac

It was on tonight, and I am so glad that I recorded it!!!! It was so good.

I am expecting about 40 phone calls tomorrow about "isn't that what your girls have?" LOL oh, well, can't ask for better awareness than to be on a show that a lot of people watch.

Yeah, but what most of us have wouldn't make an exciting show though......

I personally am quite happy that they featured it, even though it made it out to be a really obscure complication of celiac....... They did a good explanation of not absorbing, etc. etc.......

WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!?!?!

The baby was on meds for what, a week, max? With a *little* wheat starch as a binder and he has flat villi?

How did they know the celiac came from her? Why didn't they do a blood test?

What were they doing giving a baby that small oral potassium anyway?

She has the rare intestinal lymphoma with no other classic symptoms?

And what was the psychosis all about?!?!


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

That was one of the hardest things to watch. How heartbreaking. My husband said ,"thank God we didn't have to go through anything like that to get diagnosed.

As for those complications... I have brain calcifications, and have bled excessively after surgery (vitamin K defiency) my breast fed infant had symptoms, but wasn't diagnosed until she was 17 months.

No. Chase came in saying the baby had "slight villous atrophy". So celiac was in it's early stages for the baby, but full blown for the mom. The mom could have been an asymptomatic celiac, there are many out there......

I thought it was going to really be about Celiacs and not a bunch of stuff happening to someone who also finds out she and her baby have it. I think the show will confuse people about what are symptoms are.

how many of us have had those complications? well not to that extreme, but YES, resounding yes... I had those symptoms... I would say that they took it to the extreme on the show and very very sad indeed, but OMG, I certainly could relate... I got very sick during my pregnancy, then after sunk into PPD and anxiety and was having seizures... my hubby said that he could see similarities in what I went through and her story, BUT her story is much more extreme. I think the show HOUSE always pushes it to the extreme anyway, it wouldn't be interesting if it was run of the mill Celiac, now would it!

They did do a decent but very brief job of explaining the malabsorption. I'm disappointed. I really wish Celiac had not been portrayed as causing baby-killing psychosis. How often do you hear of that. And yet, what does it make the unelightened think? Celiacs are nutcases.

I'm not.

I am not talking about those symptoms, Nini. Lots of people get the anxiety and seizures but how many of us hear voices and harm other people? They shouldn't have mixed it in with her other problems.

I think he said that stress "triggers" celiac (I could be mistaken, but that's what I thought I heard), and that statement is absolutely 100% true.
