SharonF posted a topic in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac DiseaseAfter reading on here that Kid Rock's sidekick Joe C died of celiac, I did some googling. Not only do the websites say he died of celiac, they say that he was taking 60 pills a day. I have some questions about this. How do you die of celiac? I mean, nothing said "Cancer, caused by celiac," they just all said "died of celiac." And 60 pills a day? What on earth for? Educate me.
