As I said in my reply to your question about smells: Look for other intolerances. Colgate has mint flavour in it, which is extremely high in salicylates, and makes me ill. I brush my teeth with baking soda, because all tootpastes make me ill.

Check out the link in my signature on salicylates. It might be your answer.

Yes, Colgate Toothpaste is gluten-free.

As Ursula said, you may be reacting to another ingredient, or you were glutened by something else altogether. It's so hard sometimes to pinpoint the cause of a glutening.

I keep hearing about how gluten is in some health and beauty products, I have yet to find anything in my home with gluten. So what products do have it, or is the gluten hidden under some other name I'm not catching? :unsure: Thanks Julie

Some people are sensitive to floride, which is in most drinking water and some toothpaste.

Jules, oat flour (avena sativa) is VERY common in makeup. Wheat protein is common in shampoos. I find wheat or oat in many lotions. Oat is in almost all Bath & Body Works brand lotions. Maybe you're just already using all the right stuff??? Don't forget to check your makeup, chap stick, etc...

Tailz, the link is in my signature. My signature is under all my posts, where it says: intolerant to salicylates, that's the link to follow, just click on that.

I have put some baking soda into an empty (washed) skin-creme container, and just dip my damp toothbrush into that. A little goes a long way, a lot would feel awfully salty (yuck).

Rinne, fluoride is poisonous to EVERYBODY, but I don't think anybody gets an immediate reaction to it (at least I have never heard of that).

Tailz, if Tom's of Maine has a strawberry toothpaste, forget it. ALL berries are out on a low salicylate diet. Really, there is NOTHING in a tube that doesn't have something you don't want in it. Trust me on that, I've tried finding a toothpaste I can use, and you might as well save the time and forget it.

    • So my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
    • when they first came out, I read the ingredients on them, and they don't seem to contain malt.  But the company, at that time specifically posted on the website that they  are not gluten-free.  So I don't drink them.
    • Rum is naturally gluten free, but in cases where it is flavored, spiced, etc. you have to be careful where they might add a malt in the natural flavorings. I been using Admiral Nelsons coconut rums in cooking for finishing off stir frys, and adding a bit of flavor to caramelized ingredients for a few years now, I have never had issues with those. As for the Morgan, I would be careful with the spiced version as they might use a malt based ingredient in it. I did a bit of research and like you found no conclusive evidence to if it contains gluten or not. The plain rum from them is listed on many and been tested by several groups and has come up gluten free. On a side note if your a celiac or have intestinal damage I would avoid alcohol or drink in moderation. I personally only use it in cooking.
    • Hi, It seems they advertise it as a malt beverage.  Malt is made from barley normally, so it would not be gluten-free.  Unless they specify the malt is corn malt, it is always assumed to be barley malt per FDA labeling regs.
