admcs13 added a topic in Gluten-Free Ingredients & Food Labeling IssuesWheat GermHello,
I just started a new vitamin that I need to take. My doctor says that it is gluten free. I called the manufacturer, and they too, said it was gluten-free.
However, the last ingredient is "Wheat (germ)"
What do you think?
Thank you all in advance for your help!
STANDARD PROCESS is the name of the company.

admcs13 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Teenagers & Young Adults OnlyEnterolab TestingI was just wondering if any of you have done it?
I've never had the biopsy done. Back in January I was sent for a blood test where the IGG came back very high. I was told to go for the biopsy, but being personally sensitive to the anesthesia, it would be a problem and I decided not to go for it.
I went gluten-free immediately after the blood test, and after a month, the DH I had my whole life (20 years!) went away along with the other nasty celiac disease symptoms and after 2 months I started to feel like a new person.
However, I would like to go for the Enterolab tests to see if I have any other digestive problems. Has anyone else done it?

My name is Christian, a male from New York City. As I was reading here I realized I'm not really a teenager (I'm 20), but I guess close enough. I've been gluten-free since January and a vegetarian since 2000. Just wanted to say hi to you all...I'll be posting and reading a lot
