In July, the This Is Us star headed to Instagram to ask for help from fans who have celiac disease.
‘Well, this definitely takes the (now gluten free) cake for bummer news. Any celiac sufferers out there with any helpful tips??,’ she wrote over a screenshot of a Wikipedia definition of the disease, according to Popculture.com.

According to the Mayo Clinic, the autoimmune disorder ‘sometimes called sprue or coeliac, is an immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.’
There is no cure for the disease, but those diagnosed can keep symptoms at bay through the adoption of a gluten-free diet.
It appears that the star has already taken on the restricted form of eating, as she spoke of ‘delightful gluten-free tea sandwiches’ at her engagement party last month.
My heart bursts for each and every one of these ladies. If you are the company you keep, then I am in excellent standing,’ she began.
‘Thank you @rp1313for being the greatest hostess/sister/bff and for giving us all a reason to hang, celebrate and enjoy some delightful gluten-free tea sandwiches… like ladies do.’
