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!!"
