Ironically, I didn't have time to track down additional links because I was headed out the door to the dentist.
But having a "moderator" treat me with so little respect, I have little interest in continuing.
Goodbye celiac forum.
Thanks for the link, Jess.
Unfortunately, being a mod means I sometimes have to remind people of the rules they agreed to when they signed on here. One of those rules pertains to making statements of fact that are not generally known and having reliable back-up to show us, so we can learn from it.
Also, sometimes, I have to steer the topics back to the original posters intention. If a member wants to discuss something unrelated to the topic or even the forum, they can start their own, new topic in Related disorders/research or the chat/Gab section or another section it might fit.
"I'm not an expert on liquor I barely know what half the things are in the store but the owner seemed to have a lot of gluten-free customers and said many report getting sick with certain wines or "wine like drinks" (he said anything made in a day and not aged isn't wine haha referring to my arbor mist question) and he saw some consistency in the complaints of real wines making him wonder if some have contamination issues. "
A lot of wine coolers and "wine like drinks" have malt in them, which is barley, and are not gluten-free. I've not had a problem getting glutened by actual wine though. But I have noticed that alcohol affects me differently since going gluten-free. It takes much less of it for me to feel the effects now.
Blood tested 8-11 positive, Biopsy 9-11 negative (long story, most gastro drs. are morons)

Issues related to gluten: depression, low iron, hair loss, positive ana test for lupus, low vitamin D, headache, sinusitis, environmental allergies, brain fog, GI problems, weight gain....the list goes on....
