<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Yep, unfortunately. Sometimes they will put things on the regular Discovery or TLC from the health channel to promote the health channel, but not on a regular basis. It costs way too much for me to extend my cable to include the health channel, darn it. But a friend at work saw that program already and told me about it (and this was after I had a fiasco at a seminar where the meal was provided, banquet style). He said that the mother had celiac disease, didn't realize that her boy had it too, as he was asymptomatic. But he did have learning/memory problems. It was because of that that he was dx with celiac disease. My friend said that she was feeding him healthy foods, but starving him at the same time because of the malabsorption issues. At least ONE person in my office has a better understanding of what I can experience if glutened.

My boss saw it, told me all about it. It was cool, I think she understands it alot more now. She's been cool about it but has been hinting that I've been kinda hypochodriacing a little. I flipped out at someone cause they were eating a sandwich and just walked up and put thier hand in the bag of Cheetos I was munching on, I just gave him the cheetos. She thought I was overreacting, and now she's like "wow, its really hardcore and they think lots of people have it" So its getting out there, slowly.

I couldn't watch it unfortunately. But I'm starting to get interested. What's that? Catatonic seizure like episodes...? testing for epilepsy...? I didn't know, that was possible. Waaay long ago in germany I once had a blood test and my doctor told me, that I have to be careful not to get an epileptic attack??? (not sure what you call this in english???) What's this? And how could he find out with a normal blood test??? Weird...

it's hard to describe... in my case I had periods where I would "zone out" where I was aware of everything going on around me but I couldn't respond at all, and outward appearances looked like I was daydreaming or just not paying attention... but I also had episodes where I would involuntarily jerk all over for a few seconds and forget everything I was saying right before it happened.

Neurological disorders are now being recognized as being connected to celiac and gluten intolerance, the boy on the show didn't have any digestive symptoms, only neurological ones.

Sounds like me, but I never actually "zoned" out!

This is great that they chose to showcase smoeone with neurological symptoms. I find it hard for people to comprehend (believe) how much gluten effects my brain. I think you say food intolerance and people just figure if you eat too much of that food you'll have to run to the bathroom. FOr me it's nothing like that. It's good that they are shattereing the celiac myth of it just being a GI problem.

I had few gut issues, it was all weight, mental and fatigue issues. The brain fog would get so bad I was like a zombie sometimes.

If you go to the Discovery Health Channel website, offshoot of Discovery Channel, they offer you a chance to find out when a show will re aired; and enter in the title of it and they'll email you when it's on next time.

    • I was wondering if anyone could assist me in sore throat remedies. Cough drops? Teas? I am gargling with salt water but wanted something else. Anything gluten free obviously. Thanks. 
    • Over the last 1.5 years I have had a rash that will not go away.  The rash is around the neck, hairline on the front of my head, the back of my scalp, elbows, knees, shins, parts of my ankle, and buttock.  The rash seem to get very itchy during the evening.  I did have a skin biopsy completed and blood tests last year and they came back negative.   I was on oral steroids when I had the test would this possible skew the results? Also its seems the body parts that are exposed to the sun seem to have the rash. Some Pictures

    • Yes the first has wheat gluten in the ingredients, the second via the wheat flour. Here in the UK manufacturers HAVE to highlight gluten sources. Check the ingredients and if WHEAT, BARLEY, or RYE are mentioned *usually highlighted, italicised or underlined, then you will know there's gluten. Most of iceland's processed foods will probably be gluten filled to be honest. Any breadcrumbed or battered foods for instance.  Ps, you and me both have another disease, the british one of apologising  You don't need to, you're very welcome here and all of your questions are valid and understandable. It's going to get better  
    • Hi, I am deeply sorry for posting on here again. As I am scheduled for an Endoscopy on the 9th May, I wanted to make sure that my gluten intake is being kept the same. I was wondering if the ingredients to these products contain gluten even though dextrose is in one of them? http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-32-breaded-chicken-nuggets-448g/p/52275   Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-10-breaded-chicken-burgers-550g/p/52276 Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. Thank you for all your help so far,
    • JMG got it down pretty much, the painful and gluten effects from eating it should clear up in a month, damage symptoms you might notice some differences as early as 2-4months but most do not noticed major improvements til about 6 months to a year. I have been gluten-free for over 3 years all my villi have healed according to the doctor on my last scope. It is very important to not cheat and avoid any kind of CC as it can set you back weeks or months. I would suggest a whole foods only diet for the first month or two, no dairy, simple stews, soups, etc. make for easy to digest and simple meals. Check out the 101 thread for some good information. PS a new combo crockpot, steamer, rice cooker combo and liners for a crock pot will be a life saver for making simple meals and easy clean ups. Quick cook microwave ware will also be handy making sure you have gluten-free cooked meals if you can not get new cookware immediately. I normally suggest cleaning out the entire house, scrubbing down knobs, handles, on the drawers, sink, fridge, cubbards etc.  throw out condiment jars, checking ingredients on everything in the house including your hygiene and makeup. Putting in drawer organizers for new utensils, throwing out scratched glass, teflon, plastic, and steel cookware. Throwing out any Tupperware, and cutting boards, some utensils that can not be cleaned well. Some times you can save cast iron and stainless steel cook ware if you can run it in your ovens cleaning cycle over 600F. Gluten is a protein like blood if you can not clean a item where a CSI team will not find it give it up, it is not a germ that can be killed with disinfectant.  I use freezer paper for clean prep surfaces, also makes clean up a breeze, I tend to use gloves alot also when fixing foods,
