My husband was diagnosed with celiac last week. We have been trying so hard to eliminate all gluten but this is a learning process. I've learned that some of the multivitamens are not gluten-free. Could someone please help us? He is so tired and fatigued. We can't see his GI doctor until August so we need to find something safe to take. I'm also afraid he's anemic.

Thank you for any help!

Centrum says that their mulitvit (the regular one) is gluten-free. I think they may have said all of their vits are gluten-free, but I don't remember off the top of my head, only for the regular multi since I take that one. ;-)

Nature Made Vitamins and Minerals state it clearly on the label if they are gluten free. Their multivitamin is gluten-free

Gluten free and also free of other ingredients which might be unacceptable for other food sensitivities. Also kosher.

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Pioneer has a gluten-free chewable vitamin. You may want to take chewable because your body absorbs the vitamins/minerals better. good luck. Kim.

Nature Made has a "Plus Energy" Multi Vitamin that will help your husband. It has ginsing, not caffiene. I was always severly anemic and therefore very tired. I live on the Nature Made Multi Plus energy vitamins. It really gives me an added boost and I do not feel so exhausted all day.

I teake Custom Essentials- an affordable customized nutritional supplement. They test your metabolic function and then determine what you need in a multivitamin. The vitamins are also made of pharmaceutical grade ingredients so it is better absorbed in your system. You can contact my supplier, Kate at vitamingirl1@verizon.net or contact me and I'll give you her number. I am sure she'd be happy to answer any questions you may have. Hope this helps! -Michelle
