Celiac In The News

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was sitting in my family room last night watching the news on Fox channel 5 when they started talking about this misterious disease that is caused by

eating. <_< Hmm.. I said oh please, let it be about celiacs. Low and behold it was!!! :lol: They did a pretty good job on the whole article, but here's the great news....remember a few months back when we were all talking about sending letters to the show 'HOUSE' on the Fox network to see if they would do a show on celiacs? Well, they finally are!!!!! We must have made an impact!! I didn't catch when they said the episode would be on (I was too busy whooping and hollering) :lol: but I know it will be soon. I can't wait!! The only thing I noticed about the article on the news that wasn't good was when they were talking about symtpoms. Once again only diarreah and weight loss were mentioned. What about constipation and weight gain?

Anyway, We'll take what we can get. I am sooo excited!! :D

If anyone else saw this and caught when th HOUSE show will be on please let me know.

Thanks, Wendy

That's great. I emailed them about a month ago. When they air the show, everyone should send appreciative emails. Just flood them.

Yeah, really. Hopefully they do a good job. I like "House" though. I'll have to make sure to watch regularly so I don't miss it. That's really cool!

Does anyone know when that show airs? I've never seen house and hadn't even heard of it, but I'll watch a celiac episode--just to see how it's portrayed and stuff, even though I won't know who any of the characters are.

Tammy was trying to find out, but she says you can't find out from the web site. So ... she is going to tape every show so she doesn't miss it. If I miss it, she is going to send me the tape :lol: But I will be trying to catch it.

House is a medical show where the head doctor "House" keeps coming up with strange diagnosis. Try watching one, you might like it :rolleyes:

I like it. It's on Fox on Tuesdays at 9, I believe. (Depending on where you live for the time.)

Ahh...when is the house on? Oh, and I have a question...I checked the site, looking for information on when it might be on (I'm taping this episode tonight just in case) and I found someone had written a 66 chapter story on a Fox message board in which House diagnosed someone as having Celiac. Is that someone from here?

I still don't know if it was the celiac one--didn't look @ the tape yet. Did anyone watch it so they can tell us if it was or not?

I started to watch it, unfortunately it was the night my whole family decided to phone, so I lost most of the program and didn't catch the end. Just by watch in the pictures (had the mute on with the phone) I don't really think it was. But hope someone can tell us for sure. It started out right with "personality change, anger" problems and stomach pain, but that was as far as I got with it.

Anyone out there can tell us? :rolleyes:

I didn't see it, however, the season premier is Sept. 13 so I would only assume that it was a rerun (You know what happens when you assume! :unsure: ). I watched regularly last year and didn't see anything about Celiacs. Hopefully we will be able to find out when it airs before so we can pass the word along!

Oh, I hadn't realized the season starts on the 13th, so you are likely right :D That means I probably didn't miss it :rolleyes: Thanks for that!

I love the show HOUSE and an episode about Celiac disease would be so COOL! Let me know when it's airing-although I never have missed an episode, not even a repeat.

    • LOL yeah miralax was a joke for me WHOLE BOTTLE NOTHING, doctors thought I was lying. I found the ONLY thing that works for me is Magnesium Citrate, the bottled fizzy stuff for colon preps. Daily maintenance requires me to take Natural Vitality Calm daily, you dose to tolerance start off at 1/4 tsp 1-2 times a day and up it to the full dose over a week. If you get loose stools cut it back. You dose to tolerance with magnesium and with this disease a issue with absorbing it is very common, causing chronic constipation in many and requiring supplementation.
      Try going to a whole foods only diet for a while with soups and stews with veggies and meats also. Nut butters and avocados help lube up the system. I use some other seeds etc to add in bulk but I think we need to focus on clearing your out first before regulating.
    • I would say no even then....it belongs in its own little corner in hell. We have had members get sick from cross contact touching and handling paper mache, playdough, and dry wall spackle containing wheat then touching their mouths, or food.....heck you can inhale the powder from the sanding spackle and have it get trapped in the mucus in you respiratory tract to run down your stomach and make you sick......has happened to a few on many occasions.
    • Cross reactivity is a bit of a myth type thing, but we do get food sensitivities and intolerance issues that do creep up and they are always different for each person. A food diary and keeping track of what causes symptoms is what you need to do. Here is a true gluten avoidance list and a article on food sensitivities.

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden.
