Celiac disease is popping up on premium cable. In Monday’s episode of “Weeds,” a character mentioned the digestive disorder during an awkward bedroom scene. While kissing Andy in a motel room, Rebekah asked whether he had celiac disease, among other conditions, in his family. Andy, surprised by the encounter, responded with confusion, according to a recap.
The scenario was similar to a recent nod to celiac on HBO’s “Hung,” when a husband told his wife that his family medical history was free of celiac disease.
