Here's a YouTube video of Heidi Collins's substantial October 15, 2007 CNN Newsroom overview of celiac disease featuring Georgetown University gastroenterologist Dr. Aline Charabaty, who talks about the range of symptoms (which can include diarrhea, bloating, fatigue, anemia, depression, malnutrition, infertility, osteoporosis, joint pains, abdominal pain, neurological disorders, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, gastrointestinal malignancies, and weight and growth problems), the fact that celiac disease can manifest at any age, difficulties in raising research money, and the presence of gluten in many items including some pharmaceuticals.

I hope that week's other celiac disease coverage shows up on YouTube too.
