Woman's Day Article

Recommended Posts

The February 2007 issue of Woman's Day had an article titled Diseases Doctors Miss (page 66). Once I saw this title, the first thing I did was flip the pages to see if Celiac Disease was listed...and it was! :) It was a brief but decent blurb that included someone's story, common symptoms, Dx, treatment a link to celiac.org and the 800-number for the Celiac Foundation.

Other "missed diseases" included MS, Lupas, Fibromyalgia, Polcystic Ovary Disease and Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome. Albeit a little unsettling, it was certainly an interesting article.

I DID TOO!!! LOL How funny!

I thought for sure it wasn't going to be in there. I bet a bunch of people are going to get tested for it. I swear, had I not known about it before - that article would have caused me to look.

I'm so glad they mentioned it!

Woman's Day February 2004 had a great article on celiac disease. That article is what directed me to this site. Woman's Day seems to be pretty 'with it' when it comes to medical awareness.
