Actress Dana Delany Now Gluten-free: Diagnosed with Gluten Intolerance

Dana Delany, the Emmy Award winning actress best known for her roles in China Beach, Desperate Housewives and the new ABC series Body of Proof, revealed she was diagnosed with gluten intolerance in this month’s edition of Prevention Magazine

“I don’t like meat, so I don’t eat it. I just prefer vegetables, tofu, and fish. And recently I was told by my endocrinologist that I am gluten intolerant. I’m not supposed to eat bread or pasta, which is really hard when you don’t eat meat. But I’m trying gluten-free pasta, bread. It makes you less bloated and sluggish when you cut it out of your diet.”

It should come as no surprise that an endocrinologist made the diagnosis.  After all, celiac disease and gluten sensitivity are linked to many endocrine disorders: Addison’s disease, autoimmune hepatitis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, Grave’s disease, diabetes type 1, pancreatic insufficiency and Hashimoto’s disease.  Recognizing Celiac Disease, by Cleo Libonati, RN, BSN presents these and many others.  Some are due to the immune reaction gluten causes.  Others are due to chronic malabsorption of nutrient.

Every endocrinologist should be on the lookout for celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.  The entertainment industry is fortunate that this one got it right.

    I wish people would say “me” rather than “you” when they are really talking about themselves. Here, she says “It makes you less bloated…” when she is talking about her experience. People with no gluten sensitivity don’t get that symptom.
