I'm more celiac than you's Activity
I'm more celiac than you added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Joint PainI play High School lacrosse and last season (before being diagnosed) I experienced joint pains so bad that I was put on the injured list for over half the season. The pains occured mostly in my knees and ankles but some times in other areas such as my hip and groin. I was told by my doctor that it was probably related to celiac. Has anybody else had symptoms like these?

I'm more celiac than you added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsAmstel Light Gluten Free?This was quoted from a different post:
"Dear Ms. Johnson:
Thank you for your recent email message. We appreciate you taking time to
contact us, as we value comments from consumers. Heineken USA has been
informed by our parent company, Heineken NV, that our beer does not contain
wheat or other grain adjuncts. Our recipe contains only barley, hops,
yeast and water. Although barley has a source of gluten, the gluten
contents of our products is lower than the gluten free level.
Consequently, Amstel Light is considered gluten free.
Thank you for your interest in Heineken USA.
Is that possible that although it contains barley, the gluten content is lower than the "gluten free level"? I personally thought that even trace amounts of gluten were harmful.
