I watched it last night. The show is called "Mystery Diagnosis" and it's on the Discovery Health Channel. I think it was the first segment of the show. It told the story of a little boy who was really sick, he kept having seziures and they had no idea why. His mother had celiac disease but her doctors told her it was "rare" and not genetic so not to worry about her family. Well, low and behold, it turned out that his problem was in fact celiac disease but he had atypical symptoms. He had no GI problems at all.

I was so happy to see the subject being discussed. There was also discussion about the fact that celiac disease is not as rare as doctors used to think and should be considered regardless of symptoms if family members have it.

Yeah, the show usually covers people who go from doctor to doctor, knowing something is wrong but being unsatisfied with what doctors were telling them, essentially not knowing what was wrong. (Sound familiar?) They usually cover a few different people's stories (who have finallly found out what is wrong) in an hour episode. Last time we watched this, my husband said I should be on it - I am glad they are doing one on Celiac.

I was thrilled to turn on this new show and discover they were talking about celiac! I taped the second showing so I could have documentation of this when we have to switch doctors or a second child has atypical symptoms. Anyone know when the House celiac episode is to be aired? I hope I didn't miss it!

Me too! I was diagnosed with "IBS" 4 years ago and Celiac in July! You know, IBS isn't a diagnosis right? It's something the doctor says when he cant figure out you have diarrhea. LOL I hate doctors!

    • I will just share an experience I had..... I went to a steak house where there weren't a lot of safe options for me. So, I decided just to order a drink and eat later.  I asked the bar tender about how they made their margaritas - fresh lime juice, fresh orange juice and gluten free tequila. gluten-free all the way.  My husband went back to order for me and noticed that the bartender was juicing the limes and serving bread to the customers at the bar at the same time.  I would have totally drank that margarita had he not seen him doing that.  I decided to skip the margarita because of the high chance of CC
    • If you're going to continue to push for a diagnosis stay on gluten! A break could lead to a false negative. It's a lot harder to go off it and then go back on...   
    • I still prefer steaming, but I wash my white rice throughly.  I purchase California rice which has a lower level of arsenic.  Moderation is key to most everything!  😊
    • I eat pretty much grain free just fine, I eat fats instead. But on a side note I posted some specialty and grain free options as of late in the food alternative page where I list companies and food product alternatives. I honestly just welcomed bread back into my life, I found a company that makes grain free bread out of nut flours. Given you have to toast the dang bread to use it well but seems to work decently. Pasta there are carb free versions out there, and there are ones made with quinoa, buckwheat, or other grains, I even know one company that makes nut flour based ones. You can get these gluten-free options and avoid the rice. As to levels of arsenic they do test foods for these, and all should be safe, the trace amounts and the sheer amount you would have to eat to get effected is staggering, a bit of rice will not hurt you regardless if your concerned I know gluten-free watchdog does arsenic testing on products you could check and find the "safest ones" for your concerns.
    • I've forgotten them, just remember the good stuff. Weekends in Baja or Vegas or up Pacific highway to see the Redwoods and Frisco. Watching the sunrise at Mount Soledad and watching it drop into the Pacific in the evening. Carne Asada Burritos on Garnet* Solana beach ale* Gorgeous women entranced by my exotic accent, humboldt county weed, raves at the romper room, *1.99 are you out of your mind Denny Breakfasts, Christmas on the beach, *Beers in the gaslamp quarter. I need one of these                                      * which by the power of my imagination have magically become gluten free     AANNNYWAAY... Arsenic in rice. Yeah.
