Celebrities With Celiac Disease?

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry because I don't know exactly where to post this soooo, feel free to move it around.

Okay, anyone know of any celebrities with Celiac Disease?

The only thing I've heard is that Bill Clinton has it but wouldn't announce it publically because wheat is so cheap to produce that he didn't want to hurt the economy by people getting tested and then eliminating some of the wheat eaters.....

This sounds very rumorish to me....

10-06 Diagnosed Urinary Tract Infection (Allergic to Cipro, Bactrim, Macrobid, Doxycycline, Monocycline, Penicillin) - This UTI is still present with no symptoms.

10-06 Diagnosed "Acid Reflux" (Nexium didn't work)

12-06 Endoscopy diagnosed Gastritis (Negative Bioposy)

12-06 Negative bloodwork for Celiac Disease, Diagnosed "Gastroparesis" - Started Zelnorm

1-07 Diagnosed "IBS-C" - Still taking Zelnorm

3-07 HIDA scan to check gallbladder which was fully functional.

3-07 Zelnorm taken off market, started Domperidone

4-21-07 Emergency Appendectomy (FUUUNN!)

7-24-07 Enterolab results came back positive

Gluten Free since that night....

...Still not feeling great.

Bill Clinton said that he has a "wheat allergy" and eats gluten-free on the Rachel Ray show last year. I saw the episode, so that much isn't a rumor.

Elizabeth Haselback from The View is a Celiac--she has spoken about it and even had Dr. Peter Green (her doctor) on the show.

Susie Essman from Curb Your Enthusiasm, as well as Heidi Collins, a CNN Anchor and her son are also Celiac.

There is a UFC fighter who recently found out he has Celiac.

It was very inspirational to my son.

There was an article posted here about this guy earlier this week.

Don't know if that counts as a celebrity, but it did the trick for my son!
