Celiac Disease Discussed Again on The View

Elisabeth Hasselbeck's recent announcement that she has celiac disease has the whole GF community buzzing about it. It's pretty exciting to have such a visible person speaking out and educating the masses -- especially since, of the the 3 million Americans who have celiac, only 3 percent actually know it. People are suffering needlessly, and I'm glad that several prominent people, including a CNN anchor named Heidi Collins, are using their positions to make a positive difference.

Check out the clip of Elisabeth speaking with a well-known Celiac doc, Dr. Peter Green of NYC. It's the best celiac coverage I've seen on TV so far!

Thanks for watching -- you never know when a friend or family member may be able to benefit from your celiac knowledge. :-)

Interesting segment on celiac disease. I didn't realize the complications that could result from celiac disease if left untreated. I remember when you visited me and hadn't been diagnosed yet. You got sick every time we went out to eat! =( I'm glad that you also seem to have found a good Dr. and have learned to manage your diet and health.
