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.

Hey, Patti...you beat me to it! I heard Elizabeth mention something about gluten-free beer and was shocked to actually hear her say she has Celiac! Can't wait to see what The View segment on Celiac will be next week!

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!

That's awesome!

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.

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.

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

    • Matt,  Your post has literally changed my attitude over my morning coffee today In a matter of minutes.  You have done a wonderful job summing up the experience of not only myself, and you as well, but my guess is probably a lot of people who come to this board.   I know from having some email conversations with researchers that even those in the gluten Community do not see eye-to-eye on all of this. So we certainly do have a long way to go.  As for the three months you're absolutely right, as I had already tried a strict diet for 2 or 3 months and still had a lot of symptoms. I think the doctor just wants to meet after 3 months to see if there's any Improvement, the test. But I'll give it a good 6 to 12 as you suggest.  There is that lingering fear that nothing will get better and I'll continue to go undiagnosed with something sinister.  it is hard not to think that way in my case. however, again, your post is giving me some hope. And even if that hope is not realistic at the very least it's a distraction for a little while which I need.  And hey, it may just be the answer!  I am often on the fence about whether or not I should be bitching about my doctors.  in reality, two of the things in life I would never want to be would be a doctor or a landlord.  people really do look to doctors as if they are God.  a friend of mine is a physician and told me that it's quite frustrating for doctors when they can't figure out what's wrong with the patient and they get burnt out.  so I have a lot of respect for the Physicians who keep trying to find what's wrong and do so while being polite and courteous to the patient even though they may inside be feeling frustrated. I have absolutely no respect for the ones who  fail to notice that there are recalls out on their models of the God complex.
    • I'm currently searching for a brand of rice that is safe for even the most sensitive. I saw posts on here from around 2009 (I believe) and was just curious what everyone ate without issues lately?       
    • I'm not really sure what you mean? 
    • Hello and welcome I'd just echo CyclingLady - do you need to put yourself through this? There are lots of good reasons for pursuing a diagnosis but amongst the strongest are helping you to 'keep honest' on the diet or ensuring that your not denying yourselves a lot of foods for good reason. Neither of these apply to you and so I'd have to ask what you have to gain by putting yourself through it?  Oh and: Me too, but every so often I fall of the wagon into a gluten free cheesecake or similar Best of luck!
    • My own bugbear is that in dismissing the fad diet journalists will typically reference Celiac but will often say that only Celiac patients should be following the gluten free diet. Whatever the consensus medical opinion of NCGS, it's a fact that there are many people who are not diagnosed Celiac but who have been advised by their doctors to follow a gluten free diet. That distinction is typically too subtle for such articles and they therefore help to support the idea amongst the wider populace that if you're not celiac you can eat gluten and if you're avoiding it your either deluded, a chronic attention seeker or jumping on a bandwagon. A reductive and potentially harmful generalisation.
