Propel is made by Gatorade, so you may have it over there. It's relatively low-cal, I think 25 calories per serving, which is 8 oz. It also has B vitamins, maybe some others.

Is Gatorade gluten-free? I remember looking at a label and noticing it was made by Pepsi, but the flavour I looked at had "natural flavour", so Non-gluten-free boy got the gatorade and the gluten-free boy got something else.

Hi Cytomax is also gluten free. I got this reply from Cytosport:

Our entire line of Cytomax products are gluten free. However, there are a

few flavors in our other lines that you would want to stay away from:

Cookies n Crème

Chocolate Banana Crunch

Chocolate Mint Chip

Modified food starch can be made of many things.......not just modified wheat starch. Usually it is corn. Coca-cola makes the product. They say it's gluten free. If you don't believe me, then please feel free to e-mail the company then you can feel 100% sure. :)

Also, Hammer Nutrition products...a lot of them are gluten-free. They started making bars that are gluten-free, but they're actually just the same as the Orgnaic Food Bars they sell at whole foods and other stores like that...Seriously, exactly the same, except bigger and cheaper.

I recently wrote to Coca Cola in regards to Powerade. Here is what they told me as of Oct 16th 2006.

"Thank you for contacting The Coca-Cola Company,

We are able to confirm that Coca-Cola classic, caffeine free Coca-Cola classic, Coca-Cola

Blak, Coca-Cola C2, Coca-Cola with Lime, Coca-Cola Zero, Barq's root beer, caffeine free

Barq's root beer, diet Barq's root beer, diet Barq's Red Creme Soda, Diet Coke Black

Cherry Vanilla, Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Lime, caffeine free Diet Coke, Diet Coke

Sweetened with Splenda, Sprite, Diet Sprite Zero, vanilla Coke, diet Coke vanilla, cherry

Coke, Diet Cherry Coke, Fresca, DASANI Lemon, Minute Maid Light Lemonade, Simply Lemonade,

Simply Limeade, POWERade Mountain Blast, and our 100% juice products (without added

ingredients) are gluten free.

Additionally, we can tell you that all of our other products meet Codex's definition of

gluten-free, which is currently less than 200 ppm (parts per million) (0.02%) gluten.

Codex is in the process of reviewing this standard and we are monitoring the progress

closely. At this time the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not have a regulatory

definition of gluten-free.

We can assure you that the exact amount of gluten in these products is very low - perhaps

even zero. Some minor ingredients in these products are manufactured from plants that

gluten-sensitive people could react to, so we are unable to state categorically that they

are totally gluten-free even though they may have undetectable levels of gluten in them.

The Codex guideline provides a very low threshold for gluten content. However, extremely

gluten-sensitive individuals should discuss consumption of these products with their

health care provider.

We hope that this information is helpful. Should you have additional questions or

comments, please visit our website again.

Lesley

Industry and Consumer Affairs

The Coca-Cola Company"

Ok, so that means that only the POWERade Mountain Blast is garenteed to be gluten free. The other flavors may or may not be. I hope this helps clear it up for some of you.

Propel is great....it should fall out of the clouds instead of rain. Haven't noticed anything with powerade, but I don't drink it terribly often, I don't like it as well as propel.

I found this product called nuun, it is a portable electrolyte drink. It does not contain gluten, its vegan, and it does not contain sugar (confirmed by the company) so it will not upset your stomach and its really great. I am a huge fan. you should check it out at nuun.com :D

ok looking for a low cal sports drink, think i may have chronic dehydration as im still C and drink an awfull lot of water, am worried that i may be watering down my nutrition, looking for something packed with nutrients, if there is such a thing, im also lactose intolerant. im in the uk so has to be a company that will deal over seas. anyone have any thoughts? cheers.

We are currently looking into Eload - triathletes, cyclist, runners use this drink to stay hydrated through marathon's and the taste is soft. Helps with recovery and electrolyte balances. Not very expensive either. Great to use during a weight training session also.

Hope to have the official word from the supplier in the next 72 hrs.

All the best,

Pete & Elaine

There is a product on the market called Eload, it is completely gluten free, so is there emmend. These are electrolyte balancers and help with rehydration for high intesity sports. Very much recommended.

If you still have the chronic dehydration, you may want to see a rheumatologist to ask about Sjogren's Syndrome. I've read that it's present in about 15% of celiacs (MUCH higher than the general population). SS is another autoimmune disorder that attacks the moisture glands and can cause dryness anywhere in the body.

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms.
