It was a good show but the whole hour wasn't about the Murphys. Strange, but the third story sounded more like somebody with celiac than the Murphy story.

Yeah Richard, come to think of it, I did too. I identified more with her case than with the little boy. Of course, I was DX at a much older age than he. Just shows how symptoms of celiac disease get mistaken for other things....

Even Peter Greene said the boy's symptoms were very atypical. To me the real outrage was that the mother's doctor told her not to worry about family members having it, and that it took doctors so long to say, hey, she has celiac, maybe we'd better throw that test in even though this is an unusual symptom.

I havent seen this show, but have heard a lot about it. Its my understanding that the boy had a seizure(s)? I had a seizure (my one and only) about 3 months ago and then was diagnosed Celiac about 1 month after that. Neither my top notch neurologist nor my celiac specialist has been able to tell me if they are connected. Did this show discuss the seizure aspect at all, that any of you can remember?

I dont really remember them getting into the seizure aspect. Did he have a seizure? I saw the episode about a month ago...I dont remember if he actually had a seizure...he would kind of go into a catatonic (sp?) state. It was like he was zoned out...is that a seizure? :unsure:

hmmm... I think it would probably be classified as a type of seizure. There are many different levels. Sometimes you are awake and conscious when its happening - sometimes you are not. I was not - I had a grand mal. I just find it all to be waaaay too coincendental if the seizure and the celiac disease were not related. Anyway - I will have to watch the show - i just keep missing it. Damn! these are the times when i really really wish i had Tivo.

I was cat sitting for my parents when this was supposed to be on and they have this channel, but I don't. So I rushed over there in time to see it, found the channel amongst the hundreds of channels and the show was actually on! I was so excited, I sat through the first two stories and they obviously weren't celiac, then the third one came on and I'm like "this must be it" and the symptoms were tired, diarrhea, but it wasn't celiac! I don't know what happened, but it was obviously a different episode.

    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
    • Ok guys, I messed up. I ate a bag of marshmallows the same day... low and behold, with wheat starch. I did not expect that. Sneaky sneaky marshmallows with with wheat starch. fml
