Australian Actress Holy Brisley has coeliac, she is on Home and Away wich is a very popualar soap here. Also I think that country music singer Troy Casser Daily may have it there was a comment made at the ARIAS (Music awards) last year about him having a gluten free bread roll.

I think an interesting followup question - how many celebrities are reading this board? :ph34r:

I think Tiffany is the celebrity - going to elaborate extremes, like pretending to live in Seattle and enjoy hiking and yoga, but in real life... :ph34r:

Susie Essman has Celiac? That's wonderful, not really. But we need her help. She might be able to do a comic act about sillyak.

THANX! --jerseyangel

Ms. Sillyak,

I read your blog..good lord. I'm sorry about all your physical issues. Have you tried TM? I read that meditation can handle a ton of physical issues in Prevention magazine. I meditate and I'm much happier and it helped me greatly when my mother passed away. My sister went on anti depressants and I learned TM instead. I'm drug free... She's still on them.

I give kudos to Heidi Collins for getting the ball rolling...... By her coming out and announcing it and highlighting it, perhaps that's what made Elizabeth Hasselbeck realize there's nothing wrong with admitting it..... Maybe more will come out now and announce they also have it.....

I believe my grandmother died of undiagnosted celiac disease. She has so much troubles with her stomach. Diverticulitis, ulcers, has stomi for a while...so much surgery. She was in the hospital so many times during my life/childhood that it was normal for me for her to be there. In the end she went every two weeks and stayed for a couple of days because of her stomach. The last time they did surgery again and it was so messed up in there that there was no clear path for the food to go. She died 2 weeks after that.

I was just recently diagnosed with celiac and have been on my diet for about a week. I was just wondering if their are any famous people or celebrities that are known to have celiac disease?

Susie Essman from "Curb Your Enthusiasm" was diagnosed with celiac disease a few years ago...around, say 2003?

She plays Jeff's wife. Jeff is Larry's manager.

Emma Rossum and Elizabeth Hasselbeck. I think there are a few others as well.

someone on this thread mentioned jim carrey as a possible celiac. thats not the case. he eats the specific carbohydrate diet (no gluten, no rice, potatoes, other grains, sugar, or lactose...i believe). because his partner, jenny mccarthy's son is austitic and the SCD is shown to be helpful.

If you read her blog, Meg Cabot (writer... wrote the Princess Diary series) has recently been diagnosed with celiac. She talks about dealing with it on her blog.

I follow Ingrid Michaelson's Twitter, and the other day she posted, "Why does everything delicious have to have gluten in it." I assume she must have Celiac.

According to what I've read, the average time to diagnose celiac disease in the US is 11 years, in Europe, it's 3 weeks. So, I agree, we need to educate people, including the medical community.

There is apparently a radio talk show host in Chicago who is celiac disease as well, but I don't know that for a fact.

I am an Emergency physician and my daughter has celiac disease. My husband and I believe she probably came within a few months of dying from the disease. She developed severe constipation at 7 months of age, and spiraled down over the course of the next year. She was blood tested for celiac at 1 year of age, and her tests were negative. As a result, we could not convince our pediatricians or our pediatric GI that there was anything wrong. Our GI told us she "would grow out of it". I was unable to find a new GI, as the earliest next appt time was 6 months away (which I strongly believe would have been too late). After quite a bit of begging and pleading (and a little threatening), our pediatrician pulled some strings and set us up with a ped. GI about 2 hours away the next day. One look at her distended belly, muscle atropy, wasted, gaunt and pale appearance, he suspected celiac. The blood tests nearly deterred him as well, but an endoscopy/biopsy showed severe celiac disease.

I now mention to anyone I see with vague abdominal pain, a history of IBS, or BM problems the possibilty of celiac. I may be known as the crazy ER doc who is convinced everyone has it, but hopefully I will make a difference in at least one person's life.

Thanks for sharing that link, it was interesting. It says he succumbed to celiac disease. I really don't understand how he died from it, unless he didn't stop eating gluten. Can we die from this?

yes you can die from it. basicly it gives you all sorts of auto immune diseses and will attak your intestins . most people die from intestinal cancer, other health problems caused by celiac, or malnutrition caused by your bodies not being able to absorb any nutriants.

Rich Gannon the football player has a daughter with Celiac. He does quite a few publicity things for the disease. You may have heard of Danielle's Decadent chocolate cake mix, it is named after his daughter.

Also Elizabeth Hasselback, new co-host on "The View" talkshow and also a Survivor contestant is possibly a Celiac. She has mentioned several things on air that lead people to believe that she is.

-Jessica :rolleyes:

Hasselbeck is definitely celiac. She wrote an extraordinary book about it. No questions there!
