OK - I know I will get killed for stating this but WTF?

If she is following a gluten-free diet why wouldn't she be able to work?

Sounds like it is indeed a negotiating ploy that CBS called her out on.

Just my opinion.

I had that same thought as well.

After experiencing "Celiac recovery" and reading others accounts; I'd refrain from judgement.

I'm only speculating, but one of the articles mentioned that the network gave the impression they think it's 'all in her head'. Sound familiar? And It may be while they're 'on set', they put in very long days. And trying to maintain a gluten-free diet in those conditions may be pretty challenging. Plus they were apparently not allowing her to work elsewhere, and she's on unpaid leave. Though I could certainly give her some pointers on living a very low-budget lifestyle. :)

I don't watch the show myself, but I'm on the side of thinking she may well have a valid complaint.

When I read this my thought was her job requires her to work long hours - if she can't she needs to find another job. Might seem harsh, but I couldn't work long hours long after removing gluten and don't believe my employers were responsible for my not being able to work long hours nor should they be responsible to make provisions for my work to be done for me when my absences increased. In my case, I had some very good days and then would be unable to work without notice - if this is happening to Jennifer, perhaps she should wait until she is completely healed to accept a full time acting role.

I don't think she was using it as a negotiating tool and perhaps CBS could have handled it better...just not enough details to know.

Fellow celiacs could be more sympathetic. TSK TSK

Like me, this woman suffered for MANY years before she was diagnosed, so she may have some residual complications. It's not "Go gluten free and you are all better" for everyone.

Do not judge anyone until you have the facts first. I could never work full time right now as I heal from long unDXed celiac.

She took the job with the understanding it was part time.

The Gluten Dude has met Ms. Esposito and knows the FACTS.

Do not believe the media bullsh*t

This poor woman is getting her ass kicked and celiacs everywhere should be blasting CBS with emails.

"CBS cares"? No, they don't.

We are not hearing the whole story here. I only know it because I read the Gluten Dude's blog and he met with JE on Saturday.

This is BS. She agreed to a part time role while she heals and her part grew as her character became more popular. She tried to keep up, but it was too much and she collapsed from fatigue on the set. Her doc said she needs a reduced work load, but they will not accommodate her.

They claim she is "doing this for more money". No, she isn't.

So they are writing her character out ---and she's been blocked from working elsewhere.

Does this seem fair?

    • That is some odd allergy testing.  I don't get the separating the dairy?  Are you supposed to be allergic to the protein in dairy?  Then  it would be for all dairy.   like Peter said, "malt" isn't a thing to be allergic to.  Usually, foods with " malt" say  " barley malt".  Like a malted milk ball has barley malt.  But your "allergy test" should say an allergy to barley not malt.     Sorry to say, I think you wasted your money on those " tests".  
    • I definitely went for the monster roller coaster ride myself.  I ended up doing elimination diets multiple times over the years to identify problem foods beyond gluten.  And yes, you are a bright and shiny newbie at 5 months!   Usually we think of children as healing faster than adults.  After all, they do other things faster than adults too, like running into walls, and pissing off parents. Remember you are trying to heal your gut, and that means giving it an easier job than normal to reduce irritation and the work of digestion.  Stopping the immune response is important, but healing the physical damage and also restoring a healthy gut flora is important too.  It's not a simple thing and the gotchas are many.  That's why a whole foods diet with no or very few processed foods is helpful, as it eliminates many sources of gluten contamination and also carbs and sugars that feed bad bacteria in the gut.  Healing the gut allows more minerals and vitamins to be absorbed which also aids the healing process. Five months was the very beginning of my healing journey.  YMMV, but mine was more on the order of 5 to 7 years, although some of my health issues weren't (I don't think) directly related to gluten.  I would guess I am on the slow side of things recovery wise.  But it did happen, just not as fast I would of liked. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/11/161107143029.htm Even after a year on a gluten-free diet, nearly 20 percent of children with celiac disease continue to have intestinal abnormalities (enteropathy) on repeat biopsies, reports a study in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, official journal of the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition and the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer.  
    • "Gluten-Free" is a regulated term in Canada and the USA. It refers to wheat, rye, and barely content.  It does not specifically refer to "malt" since, while most malt is from barley, other grains can be malted without resulting in gluten content. Your allergist is wrong if he says "malt" is an issue. Wheat is gluten; yoghurt is dairy; but "malt" is not specific. You may react to certain things when malted.  But it depends on what the malt is made from. If it says "gluten-free" it does not contain wheat, barley or rye. Other top allergens are are listed in FALCPA, which came into effect in 2006.
    • I have been gluten-free per doctor recommendation for 2 years now. Since I was still having stomach problems, I went in for allergy testing. It came back as: Highly reactive: wheat, malt, yogurt Moderately reactive: barley, cows milk, mushrooms, cottage cheese, mozzarella, kelp, sesame, ginger Mildly reactive: green beans, chicken, sunflower, cheddar cheese, safflower I have never gone through official celiac testing; I simply followed the doctor's orders to rid myself of gluten and see if it helped. It helped tremendously, but I still had stomach issues, unexplained fevers, and fatigue a couple of times a month. Thus the allergy testing. My question is, is everything labeled "gluten free" also malt and barley free? Are there hidden places I should be cautious of sesame, ginger, or the other allergens? I'm willing to eliminate anything...I just want to feel better consistently. Also, I have three kids who don't currently seem to have issues. How hereditary are these problems? 
    • I compost.  I never add any bread products (even gluten-free) to my bin.  Why?  Critters.  Yep, rats, raccoons, oppossums..... You can not get glutened from it, unless you eat or swallow it.  Just wash your veggies.
