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

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 do not have DH, but if I have ever had it I would not remember. From what i've read I'm in the beginning demographic of when DH would appear (Which is apparently 20-40; I'm 20) but from what I can tell I don't have anything other than hyperpigmentation on my legs and a few bumps and similar things on my legs. Never had DH. My aunt has a weird rash that doesn't go away and her doctor doesn't know what it is but I wouldn't know unless I saw it again. I have 2 family members with conditions related to celiac. My mother, who is schizophrenic, and my aunt who developed MS in her 50's and has had it for 20 years, which I hear is very rare. My mother's side of the family also has a host of issues including thyroid related and etc, but the general consensus was that these things were part of aging and nothing else. I myself have had things like post-nasal drip and other minor symptoms for years because I just assumed they were normal. There have also been a couple of instances where I ate something like a PB&J in my childhood and threw it back up for no reason. I'm known to be a picky eater, and I've always avoided certain foods and condiments that make me gag like ketchup. I'm probably just going on, but I never really felt too normal, but I just kinda figured everyone was like that.
    • If the citrate version bothers you in small amounts as low as 1/2tsp then you need to change to Magnesium Glycinate like Doctors best. Some people do not react well to the citrate. NOTE Citrate version of magnesium is used as a laxative in higher doses and sold in stores that way mixed up in bottles.    Some of us just react that way to it, I use both myself on rotation, and actually use the citrate version sometimes to help move along gut when it needs that extra boost. As raven suggested eating more in foods is also a options. But I Found NO amount of food consumption could boost my levels where I needed them not even with stuff like pea protein and pumpkin seed protein. Also on the glycinate version try halving the dose starting off, perhaps drinking it with less juice or liquid. Magnesium makes your body retain water naturally so can give a bit of a heart burn sensation. This is normal, mine normally passes within a hour to two, I also drink it warm to help it start going through my gut faster and promote it hurry on along.    You might want to play with when and how to take it, perhaps it might work better with a food? >.> I have used glycinate as a food additive in homemade dips, and ice cream as it has a doughish flavor when mixed into something sweet.
    • Can you give her some magnesium rich foods instead of the supplement?  Foods are always the best way to get nutrients. Here is a link to a list http://www.healthbeckon.com/magnesium-rich-foods/
    • Thanks for pointing the date out .
    • Thyroid disorders are common with those who have celiac disease.  Being hypothyroid can cause fatigue.  Anemia is another cause for fatigue and is very common for this with celiac disease.  Have those two issues been ruled out?
