Elizabeth Haselbeck Said She Has Celiac!

Recommended Posts

I just heard on The View this morning that Elizabeth Hasselbeck has celiac disease. She mentioned it, explained it briefly as they were closing, and Rosie told viewers to Google it and they will have a segment on it next week. That's great!

I just heard (in the closing moments of the show) Rosie O'Donnell say that the reason Elizabeth never eats on the show is because she has Celiac Disease and they will be doing a whole segment on it next week.

Elizabeth herself said she has Celiac, and described it as an allergy (!) to wheat, oats, barley and rye. She also said something about being able to drink gluten-free beer.

Can't wait to see how they handle the subject.

woohoo! I was coming over here to post this exciting news too!

Wouldn't it be great if she were to become a national spokesperson for celiac disease. It could be beneficial for her too. Imagine the money ..comercials, endorsements.

Can't wait to see how the view deals with this!!!

So happy to hear her come out and say this! We've known she's had a "problem" with gluten, and we all wondered!

Nice to have it confirmed! Yay Elisabeth!

Let me know when it comes on...I figured out how to Tivo finally :)

dairyqueen: Heidi Collins, a CNN anchor, is a recently appointed spokesperson for Celiac Awareness. Google her and you'll find the info. Yay media people with Celiac!

Do you know what comes up first when you google Celiac? Celiac.com! That means we'll probably be getting more visitors and "lurkers" here, which is GREAT! Let's all get ready to welcome newbies and answer questions. Just think about how many people will be interested and possibly visiting here after next week's show!

That's awesome!

It's so nice to watch awareness grow, even in the two years since my diagnosis. It's going to help a lot of people, hopefully.

Jess,

I looked at the schedule on their website, but didn't see this ... I'm sure I am missing something ..

I wrote a letter to Elisabeth and included info on my experience and nuerological celiac ... Marcia

No relief from Nexium, Prilosec, Protonix, Zelnorm, Miralax, Imodium, Lomotil ...

Immediately stopped needing naps and digestive pain reduced.

June 2006 - Dx B12 and iron deficient. Started B12 injections and using cast iron pan.

August 2006 - MYOCLONUS GONE. (off Klonopin)

Nov 2007 - Started Paleo diet for chronic hypoglycemia

April 2008 - GTT normal. I'm no longer hypoglycemic. Started Low oxalate diet for kidney stones.

May 1, 2008 - Began salt loading for OI/NMH - noticed immediately muscle weakness was gone. I was sodium deficient but my labs don't reflect it. Still working on OI and PEM.

Where did you see that the celiac disease discussion show will air on Friday (1/26/07)? I also emailed Elizabeth to thank her for openly sharing about her celiac disease experience. I encourage anyone reading this to email her a thank you note. Let's STUFF her inbox with appreciation for promoting celiac disease awareness!

It would probably be a good idea for those who have been diagnosed via biopsy or blood work and have nuerological problems that have resolved by going gluten free to email Elisabeth too ....

Thanks ... marcia
