I've been watching "House" looking for the celiac disease Show. Do you think it might be on tonight? The previews from last week showed a bicyclist racing, falling, and something about his system(s) shutting down or dying. Do you think that might be the one??

I checked the listing and I think that the issue is steriods--House dosen't want to treat the guy because he suspects he's used them. I look ahead on my TiVo and haven't found the Celiac episode yet. If I do, I'll post it.

There's always the possibility that it could be mentioned in such a way that it is one of the first diagnoses they come up with before they find the right one.....

I thought it might be it last night when a guy came into the clinic and told House that he was have diarrhea 13+ times a day (and he was a flight attendant, so it was REALLY inconvenient!). I was thinking, Please don't let this be it...It ended up he had quit smoking and was chewing 6 packs of sugarless gum a day and the artifical sweeteners was having a laxative effect on him.

I am hoping they do a complete show on it, since celiac disease is so difficult to diagnose, and gets misdiagnosed with so many things first, it would make a good disease for House.

When they started talking about lupus and MS for the cyclist, I thought that they were going to end up with celiac, but it wasn't.......

I cracked up when House came out of that room as said "Clean up in aisle 5!!"

    • I have never had bone issues or anemic.  Honestly nothing.  If anything my energy levels have dropped since going gluten free, not the other way around.  I attribute it to the anxiety and mild depression caused by the diagnosis.  Before that I was extremely happy, healthy, with absolutely nothing to indicate anything at all is wrong.  The doctor told me that I don't need the additional test... I don't know why.  I guess the blood work was enough for them.  I requested that they send me the blood test results after the second doctor didn't give further insight.  But it will be a week or so before they arrive.  It's just so incredibly frustrating.
    • I went into menopause at age 42. I didn't know I had celiac until I was 56.  Now I know why my menopause was so early. 
    • Have been dealing with splinter hemorrhages on three of my toe nails since February. I did go to my doctor who rightly so did a very complete blood work-up ruling out other diseases such as lupus and RA and referred me to several other doctors to make sure that it was not cancer, endocarditis, or something serious. I went to the doctors.   I have done some research on vitamin deficiency and it seems that some link splinter hemorrhages to vitamin C deficiency. For the past 2 1/2 weeks I have been eating 3 clementines a day (in addition to the usual multivitamin that I take) and it seems to be helping the splinter hemorrhages. One has grown out and not returned. Visited my GI doctor today and talked about malabsorption of nutrients as a potential issue. We are doing more blood work and checking nutrient levels.  I have to believe it has something to do with the celiac. Sorry I don't have a better answer, but like you am trying to figure this out. Please let me know if you find any answers, and yes, be sure to check with your doctor to rule out anything serious.
    • You only need one positive on the celiac panel.  I tested positive only to the DGP IgA and had a Marsh Stage IIIB intestinal damage.   Good luck!  
    • Welcome to the forum.  First, you need to get copies of your celiac test to confirm you actually had it done and what the results were.  Second, to confirm a diagnosis, you must obtain biopsies via an endoscopy.  Were the doctors gastroenterologists?  Third you need to research  celiac disease.  Yes, you can be asymptomatic, but could still have instestinal damage as the small intestine is vast. here is a good place to start:  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You might think you are a silent celiac, but ever been anemic?  Had your bones checked?
