Australian Actress Holy Brisley has coeliac, she is on Home and Away wich is a very popualar soap here. Also I think that country music singer Troy Casser Daily may have it there was a comment made at the ARIAS (Music awards) last year about him having a gluten free bread roll.

I think an interesting followup question - how many celebrities are reading this board? :ph34r:

I think Tiffany is the celebrity - going to elaborate extremes, like pretending to live in Seattle and enjoy hiking and yoga, but in real life... :ph34r:

Susie Essman has Celiac? That's wonderful, not really. But we need her help. She might be able to do a comic act about sillyak.

THANX! --jerseyangel

Ms. Sillyak,

I read your blog..good lord. I'm sorry about all your physical issues. Have you tried TM? I read that meditation can handle a ton of physical issues in Prevention magazine. I meditate and I'm much happier and it helped me greatly when my mother passed away. My sister went on anti depressants and I learned TM instead. I'm drug free... She's still on them.

I give kudos to Heidi Collins for getting the ball rolling...... By her coming out and announcing it and highlighting it, perhaps that's what made Elizabeth Hasselbeck realize there's nothing wrong with admitting it..... Maybe more will come out now and announce they also have it.....

I believe my grandmother died of undiagnosted celiac disease. She has so much troubles with her stomach. Diverticulitis, ulcers, has stomi for a while...so much surgery. She was in the hospital so many times during my life/childhood that it was normal for me for her to be there. In the end she went every two weeks and stayed for a couple of days because of her stomach. The last time they did surgery again and it was so messed up in there that there was no clear path for the food to go. She died 2 weeks after that.

I was just recently diagnosed with celiac and have been on my diet for about a week. I was just wondering if their are any famous people or celebrities that are known to have celiac disease?

Susie Essman from "Curb Your Enthusiasm" was diagnosed with celiac disease a few years ago...around, say 2003?

She plays Jeff's wife. Jeff is Larry's manager.

someone on this thread mentioned jim carrey as a possible celiac. thats not the case. he eats the specific carbohydrate diet (no gluten, no rice, potatoes, other grains, sugar, or lactose...i believe). because his partner, jenny mccarthy's son is austitic and the SCD is shown to be helpful.

I follow Ingrid Michaelson's Twitter, and the other day she posted, "Why does everything delicious have to have gluten in it." I assume she must have Celiac.

John Forberger is a famous triathlete, runs a blog (www.glutenfreetriathlete.com), has Celiac Disease and kicks butt in his races. He won several events last year.

Talk about motivation. Celiac and TRIATHLONS? That is nuts.

According to what I've read, the average time to diagnose celiac disease in the US is 11 years, in Europe, it's 3 weeks. So, I agree, we need to educate people, including the medical community.

There is apparently a radio talk show host in Chicago who is celiac disease as well, but I don't know that for a fact.

I am an Emergency physician and my daughter has celiac disease. My husband and I believe she probably came within a few months of dying from the disease. She developed severe constipation at 7 months of age, and spiraled down over the course of the next year. She was blood tested for celiac at 1 year of age, and her tests were negative. As a result, we could not convince our pediatricians or our pediatric GI that there was anything wrong. Our GI told us she "would grow out of it". I was unable to find a new GI, as the earliest next appt time was 6 months away (which I strongly believe would have been too late). After quite a bit of begging and pleading (and a little threatening), our pediatrician pulled some strings and set us up with a ped. GI about 2 hours away the next day. One look at her distended belly, muscle atropy, wasted, gaunt and pale appearance, he suspected celiac. The blood tests nearly deterred him as well, but an endoscopy/biopsy showed severe celiac disease.

I now mention to anyone I see with vague abdominal pain, a history of IBS, or BM problems the possibilty of celiac. I may be known as the crazy ER doc who is convinced everyone has it, but hopefully I will make a difference in at least one person's life.

Thanks for sharing that link, it was interesting. It says he succumbed to celiac disease. I really don't understand how he died from it, unless he didn't stop eating gluten. Can we die from this?

yes you can die from it. basicly it gives you all sorts of auto immune diseses and will attak your intestins . most people die from intestinal cancer, other health problems caused by celiac, or malnutrition caused by your bodies not being able to absorb any nutriants.

This thread is several years old and the poster you are replying to may not see your response. Just so you know!

Rich Gannon the football player has a daughter with Celiac. He does quite a few publicity things for the disease. You may have heard of Danielle's Decadent chocolate cake mix, it is named after his daughter.

Also Elizabeth Hasselback, new co-host on "The View" talkshow and also a Survivor contestant is possibly a Celiac. She has mentioned several things on air that lead people to believe that she is.

-Jessica :rolleyes:

Hasselbeck is definitely celiac. She wrote an extraordinary book about it. No questions there!

    • You are not alone. My daughter also has elevated TTG after 3 years on very strict gluten-free diet.   My household is also gluten-free.   My daughter is a silent celiac.   So, I have the NIMA gluten tester, and also use the EZ Gluten test kits to test outside foods. I understand that you are careful with her gluten free diet, as we are careful with our gluten free diet.   This is just frustrating! We were offered to do another endoscopy to see if there are still damages to her stomach lining.   But we decided against that.   Because she is growing, and gaining height. My daughter does have Type 1 diabetes, and this can contribute to her elevated TTG.  I suppose if you really want to know if your child is healing, you can ask for another endoscopy, and see if there are still damages there.   Or just keep going with your gluten-free diet, as long as your child is healthy and growing normally.    
    • It is a cambells product and NOT on their gluten-free list at all. Now the ingredients for the turkey gravy look safe, the beef gravy states it has wheat in the ingredients. I would say just avoid it.....get pacific broth or some other gluten-free broth add seasonings and make your own gravy, I like using potato flour to make gravy for my church when cooking for them. Myself I use konjac flour as it is carb free, NOTE on konjac you use like 1/2tsp to 4-6cups of liquid.....stuff thickens like crazy. Potato start off with half the amount you would for a flour and slowly add more til desired consistency.
    • I have had severe constant bloating for many years. I have diagnosed with celiac diseases about two months ago and have been gluten free since. My skin rashes and constant nausea have improved a little, but the bloating is much worse. Is this because of celiac? If so how long will it take for bloating to settle down?  Is it because my stomach is inflamed? My stomach also gets full and bloated easily, but I am Always hungry. I constantly want to eat since I started eating gluten free. 
    • CeliacMommaX2, Your children may be reacting to corn in their diet. Here a post that talks about this possibility in addition to Oats - Corn can trigger IgA immune response in some Celiacs. Also  you might have them checked for Pellagra some Celiac's also have co-morbid Pellagra and it can contribute to a poor GI response even when someone is 100% gluten free. Celiac.com recently featured an article about why/how this might be so. See this article https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I have also blogged about my experience with Pellagra on celiac.com just search for the posterboy on celiac.com and my blog posts will come up about how many of my GI symptom's got better after taking Niacinamide or as I like to think/say I am a Celiac who also developed Pellagra. ***this is not medical advice only my own personal experience I hope it helps you the way it seemed to help me. I recommend people be tested before beginning any Vitamin so any cases of Pellagra and Celiac disease occurring in the same person can be documented. Since I was not tested before I begin taking Niacinamide I can only advocate that others be tested to rule it out. So if it is Pellagra undiagnosed you won't be fighting a two front war as you seem to be doing now. I am Not sure what else in your kids diet  is causing GI problems as indicated by high TTG levels. But I would look first at the corn then also maybe test to see if it is possible a B-Vitamin deficiency might be triggering some of these issues. It is not as far fetched as it seems. The gluten free works site talks about what low niacin levels look like and how eerily similar are the GI problems a Celiac has looks like in people who have it. http://glutenfreeworks.com/blog/2010/06/23/niacin-vitamin-b3-deficiency-in-celiac-disease/ New research validates that low Niacinamide in pregnant mother influences Ezcema in their babies. see this link about this new ground breaking research about how inherited B-Vitamin deficiencies can affect the health of our children. http://www.medindia.net/news/higher-levels-of-vitamin-b-during-pregnancy-lowers-risk-of-eczema-in-children-163685-1.htm So it seems plausible any deficiency you might of had could of been passed on to your children. And doctor's unfortunately don't know to look for Pellagra any more today and therefore don't find it. see Dr. Heaney's blog post on why this is so. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ quoting and I couldn't agree more. "In the United States, at least .  . . it is doubtful today that most health professionals would recognize it (Pellagra) if a case happened to come to their attention." today. But is it easy enough to check for with a blood test or sometimes a 24 hours urine test is also used.  You don't have to have all the D's of Pellagra to diagnosis it.  ONLY  one of the D's (Digestive) can confirm a diagnosis. In fact the MD guidelines website notes that if you have only one of the D's of Pellagra it is better to have the dermatitis problems or doctor's have trouble identifying it as a Niacin(amide) deficiency today. http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra Quoting " The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash (eczema my words) is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations." as the new research I cited above is bearing out. They forgot what they knew 75+ years when Pellagra was eradicated from the general public and no longer recognize it when it present's other than as a skin disease today.  Pellagra is Italian for rough/sour skin as first described in Italy before Niacinamide was isolated as it cause. The 3 D's of Pellagra are not all separate diseases but one Parent disease with many children like dermatitis issues and/or dementia issues and/or GI issues. I hope this is helpful and good luck on finding out what (else) might be triggering the high TTG levels. Sorry for the long post but I am trying to educate here about why and how Pellagra is often misdiagnosed as Celiac disease today  and sometimes that takes some background information to understand not only what is happening but WHY it is happening. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
