    Don’t let the Hollywood snobbery get to you. I’ve been in zero anything, not even a high school play because I chickened out. I don’t count the ballet recital when I was 4. What actors go through is pretty heroic.

    I sincerely hope that in both of these celeb’s case, someone close to them pulled them aside and helped them get a real diagnosis, or at least attempt to get one. Sometimes I think only a simple and clear message can get through misleading stuff like this. Like, “please see a gastroenterologist for a celiac screening and a genetic test, for your own health” or something like “have you been diagnosed with it by an MD or is this a personal opinion?” (if you’re really annoyed with them)

    Since their premise is wrong, the “therefore I am drinking this beer… ” or “therefore… whatever” part is not worth arguing with.

    I had a hard time finding an MD who thought I was Celiac. I had no positive blood test. But my genetic test was positive. I had already given up gluten by the time I saw a gastro. He didn’t want to risk endoscopy because I have a history of bleeding and a history of blood clots. So I’m Celiac in name but not in any way that would qualify me for a clinical trial. Every subjective symptom is there too, including the symptoms of gut healing. I think we need some alternative and accepted means of diagnosing it with certainty. I had to fight hard to get clarity on it.

    I think most people don’t go that far. They get nonsense from the first or second confused doctor and then they ask their alternative practitioner. I don’t mind alternative health practitioners, but I like my diagnosis to come from an MD. Then later if they want to help me then fine.

    In the case of celeb’s I think there is a phenomenon of pushing alternative health on them because they can afford it. And human curiosity pulls them into it too. But when it comes to something that can destroy your thyroid and thereby your career in Hollywood, I really think they should see a real MD about it.
