Katie Couric Talks Celiac Diagnosis

via www.twitter.com/katiecouric

Katie Couric interviews Dr. Peter Green of Columbia University to discuss the basics of celiac disease. According to Dr. Green, 1 in every 133 Americans has celiac disease, though 90% of those cases go undiagnosed. Because many common symptoms of celiac disease (IBS, gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea, among others) resemble other gastrointestinal issues, celiac can be difficult to properly diagnose.

My husband developed enteropathy associated T-cell lymphoma, a very rare type of cancer, caused from his allergy to gluten. His small bowel ruptured which led to the discovery of his cancer. He also was diagnosed with Celiac Disease which he did not know he had. There is much more to this story. -- His long battle with this incurable type of cancer, the discovery of a new drug which has allowed him to be in remission for several months, the gluten free diet, etc. We would love to share his story with you if you are interested. He is currently under the care of Dr. Nashitha Reddy at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, TN. I believe he is the only patient that the Vanderbilt Oncology Dept has ever treated with this type of cancer because it is so rare.
Thank you,
