I was just reading the latest issue of Elle...big article on Jessica Simpson, which mentioned that she'd gotten really sick last year with intestinal bleeding....and discovere that among other "allergies", she was allergic to wheat. I don't know if that means wheat allergy, or rather, something like gluten sensitivity and celiac disease.

Wow. It certainly sounds possible. Maybe it will develop into Pizza Hut learning more about it.

Could be--I remember Elizabeth Hasselbeck referred to her Celiac as a "wheat allergy" for quite a while before she announced on the show that she had Celiac.

I watched a few of the newlywed shows and remember one where she was just coming off a diet (low carb) so she would lose weight to film the dukes movie. She was with Nick eating at a restaurant and having a big plate of pasta and she was so excited to be eating carbs. She got full really fast and all night she complained she had gas. She was rolling around and couldn't sit still. She was drinking maloxx I think to get the gas to escape. Then they ending the show with her farting loud and long and Nick couldn't believe something like that would come out such a pretty little girl. lol It was funny but you could tell she was in pain. I understand it but I don't think alot of people do.

Since we're all talking about The Simpsons, is anyone else doing a Nelson "HA-hah!" over this?

I mean I don't wish any gastrointestinal disease on Jessica or anything. I just find it so deliciously amusing that Pizza Hut's main spokesperson can't even eat their product. It's just...funny.

Plus it's nice that we actually might have a real celebrity among us who is actually famous and stuff. Hasselbeck isn't exactly what I'd call "high profile."

OMG, that's exactly what I was thinking. She's SOO dumb, she would not be the best person to help the world understand the necessity for this particular lifestyle.

I'm quite certain she'll never be required to read a label or cook her own food, so - it won't be any "real" big deal for her.

:lol: OMG I think our friend Steve (GFP) across the pond really does think we're talking about the cartoon Simpson family? yes they are orange...but Jessica is a little orange also...... :lol:

OMG, that's exactly what I was thinking. She's SOO dumb, she would not be the best person to help the world understand the necessity for this particular lifestyle.

I know.....plus she looks fabulous - I mean - - doesn't look sickly or anytyhing, and would be a terrible spokesperson and atypical example of the affects of Celiac......horrors......

you know what, we need someone really famous and older, like......Jack Nicholson or....Barbra Steisand? or something.....to realize the ravages of Celiac.....lose a couple of years of his/her life to illness, and THEN talk about it.......

I used to flip through and catch Newlyweds every now and again, in the beginning I liked her music, but what turned me off was the day she bought the 5000 sheets, (even Nick wanted to know why she had to pay so much for them) and she wanted to wash them and couldn't figure out how to work the washing machine :blink: I honestly always thought people were joking about the chicken/tuna thing as it was a joke on the show.

Hasselbeck is just as dumb. She once said that if gays were allowed to marry each other then people would start marrying their toasters. Um, yeah. I've always wanted to marry my Black and Decker Toaster Oven but thank god the Christian Right is saving me from myself!

Rumor has it that Hasselbeck is really only on The View (as the "conservative voice") because she's so stupid and innarticulate, she only makes her left-leaning co-hosts seem smarter by comparison when an issue is discussed.

The point is mute anyway. Yes, Jessica is an idiot too, but her having Celiac could only help. Even Michael Jackson helped a lot of people with Vitilago (am I spelling that right?) by telling Oprah that he had it and that's why he has to bleach his skin. Sure, none of us believed that Michael Jackson had to bleach his skin THAT PALE because of a medical condition (anymore than we believed that Macauley Culkin was going over to the the Neverland Ranch just to play pinball) but it got the disease discussed and now lots of people know what it is. Before it had been virtually unheard of.

i actually just heard about this on the radio when i was getting ready this morning...looks like a lot of people heard about it! :)

the report i heard was "blah blah i guess jessica simpson won't be doing any more pizza hut commercials because she has an allergy to wheat, tomatoes and cheese." i'm sorry i don't really like her so my first reaction was omg...yeah right *eye rolling* but i guess if people heard it from difference sources maybe it is more plausible. can you really be allergic to just cheese? or is it dairy or something... that's what made me wonder.

but yeah i agree, she is dumb and if people hear about this and then are like oh jessica simpson looks so great maybe i should go wheat free as a "diet" which i'm sorry maybe it's selfish but i think it's an insult. my friend's mom (who is just...don't get me started...) recently decided to eat "wheat free" as a weight less diet and i find it an insult!! she wouldn't even have known what it was until i went gluten-free a year or 2 ago. it's like she just give up wheat on a whim and it's nothing. it is NOT like that! it's hard!! it's not a choice so i can loose weight! besides i saw her eating a "spinach wrap" the other day...seriously you think that's just made of spinach?!? i'm sorry that was a little off topic, but i needed to vent because it makes me really irritated... ;)

You know, I have a very evil thought... Perhaps Jessica Simpson is "allergic to wheat, cheese, and tomatoes" so that she can bow out of her contract with Pizza Hut. Maybe she just got a better offer and down the road her allergies will mysteriously disappear. I'm not trying to offend anyone, just a thought.

Yeah...and in this case she could be the *perfect* spokesperson for Celiac and the effects of gluten on the brain. :lol:

I found it more amusing that although she was the Pizza Hut spokes person every time there was a pizza box in the background of the show (no matter how well they bleeped it out) it was a Domino's box. Haha.

ROFLMAO!!!! I am going to die I'm laughing so hard. This post is genius!

As for JS having celiac, I agree, she may be dumber than a chicken mcnugget, but still it can only help.

    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?  
    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
