"Earlier this month I responded about Nature's Plus CAL/MAG. My health food store owner told me it is Gluten-Free. But, it's not!!! It took me a while to figure out that my reaction was from the CAL/MAG. Verified 1-9-2004 from the Nature's Plus company that it is NOT GLUTEN FREE. Pharmaceutical glaze contains gluten. I hope you haven't tried it. If so, please throw it away or give to someone who can use it. "
Does anyone know if capsules are gluten free?

I think most capsules are not gluten free. As far as I've read, capsules use like a gelatin base that contains gluten. I always still to tablets, preferably uncoated at that.
Let me know if you find out different.

since going gluten-free on Nov 1 2003, due to an allergy to wheat, which
I learned of by a blood test done by my gastro doc. I have been coming to this
board almost every night, but didn't feel like communicating. I have a lot of trouble
due to gerd, and IBS, which seems to be triggered by ingestion of fat. To make a
long story short,as a nurse I didn't believe that dietary supplements would make
much difference, but the meds prescribed by my GD weren't working to reduce
the bloating so a few days ago I bought some L-Glutamine and Acidolphus and
wonder of wonders I can actully say that I am actually feeling better and I just
want to thank all of you and I hope I can help others as I have been helped.

especially food enzymes to help the digestion of food? How about HCL to increase stomach acid for digestion?
Initally, a year ago after diagnosis I seemed to be fine on the gluten free diet. Now, I'm not so sure. I don't think I have any food allergies but I continue to have a lot of gas some days, even when I am sure I have eaten as I should. At first, it was only dry beans and I took Beano. Then, broccoli and now a lot of other vegetables produce gas. I eat very little red meat, sugar, no soft drinks, lots of various green teas, some black tea and once a week I have some coffee. I stay away from milk except for yogurt.
I do a lot of reading but have no one to really talk to about enzymes. What do you take?
Otherwise I take vitamins and minerals, copper, manganese, boron in addition to calcium and magnesium. I take Glutamine, Horsetail, Oil of Primrose, MSM, CoQ10, Ginko Biloba, and have just started SAMe and Taurine. I notice that my fingernails are improving.
I know that I have have Celiac at least 14 years and maybe as much as 25.

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 2006It 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
