House Tv Show Will Feature Celiac Disease

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I saw last night's episode and the previews for next week. I doubt celiac will be mentionned more then once or twice. I'm thinking House might write it on his board as a current disease that either the mom or the baby has already.

Anxious to see it though.

I just came across this--it gives a preview of the 5/9 episode--

It will be interesting to see how it ties in. I don't think celiac will be a major part of the plot though. Some of the symptoms described in the Fox link could be celiac, but this statement wouldn't make sense if it was celiac:
"Kara’s husband learns some shocking information about his wife and struggles to deal with his newfound emotions towards her. "

Time will tell!!!!

I know--the more I find out, the more I think Celiac will be a sideline. But, we'll wait and see--any mention is better than none at all!

I also saw preview and was wondering how they are going to tie celiac disease to this womans problems. Although with all the reading I've done I know some people do get seizures. I do hope this show is good. I for one will be Tivo'g it so I can watch again.

Hey all, just checked on the time in my neck of the woods, and the summary says this (on tvguide.com site)

"A mother almost drowns her newborn son when she has a seizure while bathing him, but that's not what's causing his serious illness. And the mother's "seizure" turns out not to be a seizure at all. Meanwhile, Chase begins working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit; Cuddy and Wilson have dinner together; and Foreman's back at work, though his mental acuity isn't all the way back."

So........hm.......maybe she has celiac? Tune in to find out! LOL! I will :D

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
    • tTG-IgA Tissue Transglutaminase Immunoglobulin A Self The enzyme TTG deamidates gliadin (a broken-down component of gluten). In reaction to the presence of TTG, the antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA) is produced. Raised IgA antibodies indicate short-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten 2-4 weeks preceding the test.   Not 100% specific: there are other causes of a positive test, including diabetes, heart failure, Crohn’s and others. Also, people who have celiac disease can get a negative result with this test. Machine-read. tTG-IgG Tissue Transglutaminase Immunoglobulin G Self In reaction to TTG, IgG is produced. Raised IgG antibodies demonstrate long-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten from 3-6 months, sometimes up to a year, preceding test.   Valuable in diagnosing Celiac in patients with selective IgA deficiency. DGP-IgG   Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Immunoglobulin G   Newer, excellent test that detects an immune response to a very specific fragment of the gluten molecule (gliadin peptide).   If both DGP are high, celiac disease almost certain. Accurate for detecting gut damage of celiac disease, so good it is likely to make endoscopy redundant. Does not replace the IgG-gliadin test. DGP-IgA Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Immunoglobulin A   (ELISA) measures antibodies directed against deamidated Gliadin peptides (DGP) in human serum or plasma. AGA-IgG Anti-Gliadin Antibody Immunoglobulin G Anti-self (Older gliadin test.) The antibody immunoglobulin G (IgG) is produced in response to gliadin. Raised IgG antibodies demonstrate long-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten from three to six months, sometimes up to a year, preceding the test.   Not specific & sensitive for Celiac, but accurate as an inexpensive test for evidence of a gluten reaction AGA-IgA Antigliadin Antibody Immunoglobulin A Anti-self The antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA) is produced in response to gliadin. Raised IgA antibodies indicate short-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten 2-4 weeks preceding the test.   Not specific & sensitive for Celiac, but accurate as an inexpensive test for evidence of a gluten reaction Total IgA Immunoglobulin A Self The celiac blood test panel includes the total serum IgA test because some people (3%) are IgA-deficient. If you have a very low total serum IgA, that can invalidate the three blood tests that rely on your IgA levels. People with celiac disease suffer from low total IgA levels about 10 to 15 times more frequently than people in the general population. EMA IgA Anti-endomysial antibody IgA Self EMA stands for antiendomysial antibodies, which are antibodies produced by the body that attack the body's own tissue. When the EMA-IgA is positive, the patient almost certainly has celiac disease. However, the test also can produce false negative results in patients with celiac disease but only partial villous atrophy.   Highly specific (>95%), and >90% sensitive. The EMA antibodies correlate to degree of villous atrophy. Observer-dependent.
    • Thanks  so much for your response ravenwoodglass - I do have a slip to get bloods done before my visit but I'm guessing he is not testing for celiac diease.  He has requested FBC and diff, electrolytes, LFT's, LDH, ESR - Erythrocyte Sedimentation rte, C-Reactive Protein.  What would be the test for Celiac Diesase?
