I just heard on The View this morning that Elizabeth Hasselbeck has celiac disease. She mentioned it, explained it briefly as they were closing, and Rosie told viewers to Google it and they will have a segment on it next week. That's great!

I just heard (in the closing moments of the show) Rosie O'Donnell say that the reason Elizabeth never eats on the show is because she has Celiac Disease and they will be doing a whole segment on it next week.

Elizabeth herself said she has Celiac, and described it as an allergy (!) to wheat, oats, barley and rye. She also said something about being able to drink gluten-free beer.

Can't wait to see how they handle the subject.

woohoo! I was coming over here to post this exciting news too!

Wouldn't it be great if she were to become a national spokesperson for celiac disease. It could be beneficial for her too. Imagine the money ..comercials, endorsements.

Can't wait to see how the view deals with this!!!

So happy to hear her come out and say this! We've known she's had a "problem" with gluten, and we all wondered!

Nice to have it confirmed! Yay Elisabeth!

Let me know when it comes on...I figured out how to Tivo finally :)

dairyqueen: Heidi Collins, a CNN anchor, is a recently appointed spokesperson for Celiac Awareness. Google her and you'll find the info. Yay media people with Celiac!

Do you know what comes up first when you google Celiac? Celiac.com! That means we'll probably be getting more visitors and "lurkers" here, which is GREAT! Let's all get ready to welcome newbies and answer questions. Just think about how many people will be interested and possibly visiting here after next week's show!

It's so nice to watch awareness grow, even in the two years since my diagnosis. It's going to help a lot of people, hopefully.

Well i think if you check the schedule next week they may have it online or on the recap part of the website.

http://abc.go.com/daytime/theview/index.html

I also think it maybe a good idea to email the show or Elisabeth, I did, and just let them know how many people are thankful for them bringing this to their show.

Jess

Where did you see that the celiac disease discussion show will air on Friday (1/26/07)? I also emailed Elizabeth to thank her for openly sharing about her celiac disease experience. I encourage anyone reading this to email her a thank you note. Let's STUFF her inbox with appreciation for promoting celiac disease awareness!

It would probably be a good idea for those who have been diagnosed via biopsy or blood work and have nuerological problems that have resolved by going gluten free to email Elisabeth too ....

Thanks ... marcia

    • All the issues you said came up after going gluten-free. Three points
      1. Are you sure you eating gluten free? If you eat out good chance your getting CCed, and is everything your eating really gluten free? There are many that are iffy on the market now days and CC can get in on some of the oddest aspects like shampoo, make up, lotion, medication, sauces, spices. etc.
      2. Sounds like your have deficiency issues, what are you eating? Your supposed to eat a varied diet when gluten free, most gluten free processed foods are not enriched...most gluten food is essentially sprayed with vitamins. SO you need to eat a varied diet eating leafy greens meats, eggs, etc. I myself have other limitations and have to supplement what I would get from these. ALSO celiac makes it where you do not absorb all the nutrients from your food I have 2 suggestion of stuff you NEED to take. Liquid health Stress & Energy, Liquid Health Nurological Support, and Doctors Best Magnesium.... these will help with stress, muscle aches, and energy issues. NOW you might need some other things like D and a few others.
      3. Sugars can cause all kinds of issues I know the issues with the craving.....I can not avoid them myself. I use some sweeteners like erythrol, stevia, monk fruit, etc to avoid the real sugar and the chemical BS ones. I make grain free, dairy free, gluten free baked goods, nut butters and snacks and even make a living off of selling them......I have a focus on making everything super moist as I know that is a huge craving for those of us with this.  Try moving to a healthier option if you can spiking your insulin and glucose levels is going to raise all kinds of havoc and the excess sugars can lead to candida or sibo in your intestines.

      Oh and yeah if you think death is bad we had a member have to get a emergency colonstomy. They ignored it and ate gluten and kept on doing it.....yeah having to poop in a bag sounds worse then death or cancer to me....and those are your other options.
    • Your daughter is only 7 years old.    I believe with a strict gluten-free diet, and some time, she will grow. My daughter was diagnosed at age 10.   When she was younger, she was always tall for her age.   She was in the 90% percentile as a toddler.   When she was finally diagnosed at age 10, we noticed that she did not grow at all for a little over a year, and she was at 25% percentile, and shorter than all her girl friends.   (She used to be one of the taller kids in the class) She is 14 years old now, still growing, and she is catching up with her friends, (no longer the shortest).   She is 5' 3'' right now.   She does not have her period yet, so we hope she will grow another few inches.   If she can be 5' 6", that would be a very good height for a girl. I think your daughter will be fine.  With a strict gluten-free diet, of course.
    • Thank you for the info cyclinglady! As far as repeated celiac antibodies testing, I think my dr had me tested for that several months ago, and it was improving. I think that's when she had mentioned that "you're an 8 now and you used to be a 12". That was about 3-4 months ago if I recall. As far as my thyroid, I don't ever remember my dr mentioning anything like Hashimoto or Graves, just that my T3 levels were off. When I went to the dr recently (4 days ago), she had mentioned that I HAVE to take a synthetic or natural Rx for it (like Nature Throid) and said I basically can't just stop taking it, and if I stopped taking it that, worst case, I could end up dying. 
    • Welcome!  Glad you found us.  Have you had follow-up testing?  This may determine if active celiac disease is your source of your current issues.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ If celiac disease is not the source of your joint issues, you might need to go back to your doctor to rule out other autoimmune disorders.   Are you really sure your diet is truly gluten free?  Do you eat out?  Eat processed foods?  Consider a Whole Foods diet until you see improvement.  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/2013/03/04/the-gluten-contamination-elimination-diet/ it sounds like your friends are not very supportive.  I travel and dine with friends.  I usually bring my own food or eat prior.  I order a drink.  Everyone is used to it now.  I never feel excluded as I value feeling well.  But I had to let them know that I was okay with them eating and my not eating.  The goal is not to eat, but to maintain relationships.  I also plan outings that are not food focused.  Like going to the movies (I bring my snacks) or having a picnic where we bring our own foods.  I also host lots of gatherings too.   I hope this helps.   Hang in there.  😊  
    • When we have DH (the skin form of celiac) and neuro impact (depression and anxiety) we have to be very strict for those problems to resolve. The rash can take a long time to clear as the antibodies take time to clear out of the skin. Many also have to avoid iodine. I only had to avoid iodized salt but some have to also avoid high iodine foods. After the rash heals we need to add iodine back in though as it is a needed nutrient.  Do check your toiletries for gluten ingredients. While gluten can not be absorbed by intact skin if you have a rash present then your skin is not intact. You say you have increased the amount of sugar you eat. That is not good. There is a lot of food that is naturally gluten free. That is what we need to go with. It can be hard on us socially but there are ways to cope with that effect. Many bring food to a restaurant that is safe or eat before leaving home and just get a drink. Celiac is only isolating if you let it be. Have you had a repeat Celiac panel run? That would be a good idea to make sure that your levels are going down. If they are not then you have gluten sneaking in somewhere. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section. It has a lot of good info for you. You may find you haven't been as gluten free as you think as gluten can be sneaky. I hope things resolve for you soon. It is very important you follow the diet strictly. It isn't just a case of perhaps dieing early. Celiac antibodies can attack pretty much any organ and can also contribute to the development of cancer and thyroid issues. It is a pain to get used to but get used to it you must for your sake and for the sake of those who care about you.
