Celiac on CNN
Last week, CNN's Wolf Blitzer hosted a great segment on Celiac Disease. The segment featured Dr. John Snyder of the Celiac Disease Program at Children's National Medical Center, Vanessa Weisbrod, Executive Editor of Delight Gluten-Free Magazine and Sarah Marx, a patient living with celiac disease. I am very impressed with Mr. Blitzer's knowledge of Celiac and his professional and thorough questions. Great job to Vanessa, Dr. Snyder, and Sarah for their participation in this interview.

Well presented, gang. We thank you for shedding light on celiac. With 309 symptoms, anyone could have celiac. What we do now affects our health in the future. Thanks for the post, Erin.

Yes, well presented and good questions Wolf. Of course there is only so much you can say in a short segment, but two things that could have been clarified is that the Doc said a gluten free diet for non-celiac folks is fine. Well.... yes and no. There is a risk of vitamin defficiency on a GF diet. The doc should know that. Also, it would have been good to mention that there are a lot of folks getting diagnosed with Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance and talk about that briefly.
