Celiac On Gma

I saw it too! I heard Robin say "the hidden medical reason women might feel bloated" (or something similar) and was hoping it was about celiac. I sat glued to the tv for 45 minutes waiting, and wouldn't you know it, the second I take a break to go to the bathroom, that's when it comes on!

I caught most of it though, and it seemed pretty good. I always get chills when something about Celiac is publicized, feels like it's a small victory. I"ll e-mail a big thank you too. I've also been meaning to e-mail Elizabeth Hasselback from the view, doesn't she have it?? It would be great if the women on The View could talk about it too, I mean heck, they talk about everything else under the sun, right?.....but if she hasn't already mentioned it, it may be a lost cause. Worth a shot though. Thought a before and after piccie of my little girl might help pull at the heartstrings a bit, or is that terrible? If it helped another parent, or anyone else suffering, it would be worth it. Anyway, I am proud of GMA, and I just hope this is the start of something good.

HI

There was a thread earlier about some one on the forum going to the View and during a break giving her a tee shirt about celiac disease or a note about it......

I really am sorry, I can't remember the whole issue.

If you have been dx'd and your daughter also, she might be interested as 'Gracie' is that her name, might have it...It's your call on whether to do this or not. If you do, might mention Dr. Tim's report today...but again,,,it's up to you

taweavmo3 - I would totally use the sympathy card if I had one like that.

I agree wholeheartedly.

I didn't see the show, but my daughter's godmother called me to tell me about it, and then I hear about it here! So, I e-mailed them... I pointed out though that not all Celiacs lose weight, some are overweight...

Just wanted to say that the GMA exposure did a LOT for us, more than I imagined. I have a client who remembers seeing the story but didn't write down the name so she was thrilled I could tell her about it. She needed the info for a friend's daughter who has had every test in the book - for stomach aches - to no avail. Anyway, I sent her the links to the NIH and Univ. of Chicago Celiac program sites. The word is getting out people! Together we actually can make a difference.

    • I'm a scientist, and I did a little research into the study. Looks valid and it was published in a respected journal.  http://www.gastrojournal.org/article/S0016-5085(17)36352-7/pdf The science looks solid. As someone who didn't have a super clean cut diagnosis before going gluten free, I'd love to see something like this become available. Then again, there's no doubt in my mind that I can't have gluten, so any additional testing would be purely academic. But like I said, I'm a scientist. I can't help myself. 
    • Update: I have tried calling the company several times and have emailed twice. I have yet to talk to a person on the phone and no one has emailed me back.    I did a little research and they were are already involved with a class action lawsuit about being labeled as salt free and one of the first ingredients is sodium chloride.  I am done with this shampoo because this whole company seems a little shady now! 
    • I've actually been glutened by shampoo with hydrolyzed wheat protein, and I wasn't even the one using it. It was my husbands! I swear I don't go around eating my husbands hair.  I am pretty sensitive though, so it's entirely believable that the trace amounts in his hair were getting onto his and my hands and then making its way to my mouth, etc. etc.  It was a slow and steady low grade glutening that eventually built up to something that I was able to recognize as more definitively "a glutening". Once we ditched the shampoo and I recovered, I realized that I'd been feeling it for weeks.  It's going to depend on your level of sensitivity, but even if you don't feel it, it could still be doing damage. Also... I second that. Starch is a carbohydrate, protein is a protein (obviously), there is no simple process that would convert one into the other. Also, as gluten is a protein, converting starch to protein wouldn't be expected to do anything to gluten ANYWAY.  Speaking as a biologist here. I call poppycock. 
    • I just want you to remind you that I just had a repeat endoscopy last week after my diagnosis some five years ago.   Even though my antibodies are still elevated, my intestinal tract has healed.  But why have I been feeling sick?  I have chronic gastritis.  Who would have guessed?   I do not drink (rarely), take any meds other than my thyroid replacement, and do not have H. Pylori.  That leave autoimmune as the most likely culprit.  I also have some other minor issues that I think is related to Hashimoto’s.  So, I am in an autoimmune flare-up, but celiac disease is not the cause of current my woes. My endoscopy results have validated that I have been doing a good job about avoiding gluten.  I can relax a bit now!   I think because the treatment for celiac disease is a burden placed on us, it can become overwhelming.  Sure, we all eventually master the diet and most of us go on to lead plain old normal lives, but if something is off, celiac disease is the first thing that many of us blame.  Actually, we blame ourselves, to be honest.  We have to remember that we are often dealing with other health issues too.   As far as hair, I buy gluten free shampoo.  It is from Costco and it says it right on the label.  Nice and inexpensive.   Do I really need it to be gluten free?  No.  I think the last time I swallowed shampoo, my mother was most likely bathing me and I did not heed her warning to keep my mouth shut (baby shampoo may not sting your eyes but it tastes awful!).   Like you, sometimes I think it helps to have one less thing to think about and that can be priceless.           
    • https://www.twinings.co.uk/hot-chocolate-coffee-other-drinks/hot-chocolate-and-malt-drinks/twinings-swiss-chocolate-drink Have discovered this drink - it's great, labelled gluten free and is also fortified.   I can't drink too much milk as I get bloated, but find it tastes really nice even made mostly with hot water and just a small amount of milk.  Thank you Twinings.
