Yogurt?
0

14 posts in this topic

I was just at back to school night and one of the aides asked if my son was the one with Celiac. She went on to say that she noticed I send in yogurt for him and that she is a Celiac as well and was told by her doctor not to eat yogurt. I have read the ingredients and they appear safe. Am I wrong?

I have read and heard somewhere that we should not eat yoghurt. But I think that is just being extra careful. Not all yoghurts have gluten, but some will. I check and recheck the yoghurts I eat, and have never had any reaction to it, except once, when I think it might have been the favour or colouring.

I tend to stick to the same yoghurt, it is plain and seems to have the least additives, but I add whatever I like to it and have no problem with that.

Again, I don't know where this information is comming from....

It's just that simple, read wheat, barley, rye, barley.

Yoplait , without the crumbs and such, is gluten-free.

I eat and drink (the smoothies) Yoplait all the time. I have never had a problem. I have heard somewhere on here, I think, that Dannon will not guarentee that their flavors are gluten free. I think I remember something about their plain yogurt being ok. I am sure others can enlighten us about the Dannon.

Danon is completely untrust worthy in thier ingrendients from a gluten stand point, there is no way to know if they are safe or not, they much around with defintions, and make up new terms. I personaly will not knowingly eat anything with the Danon name on it, and certinlay would not risk my son to them.

It's just that simple, read wheat, barley, rye, barley.

In America you have to add OATS to that list as all mainstream oats in America are contiminated with wheat. I also always add malt to that list, just for carlity since its often listed by itself.

After finishing a round of antibiotics, I grabbed a yogurt container to try and replace some of the bacteria in my gut. It was Breyer's Cream Savers Strawberries and Cream. I read the label, but evidently not carefully enough. I could have sworn it said "corn starch," but I started feeling glutening symptoms afterward. I checked the ingredients on the website and it contains modified food starch, a big red flag for gluten in my book. :( I feel foolish because I was doing so well up til now. I hope it passes soon...

There are several yogurts that are safe for celiacs to eat. Yoplait (made by Kraft), Mountain High Yougurt (says gluten-free on the container and is lower in sugar than other brands), and Kroger yogurts (if I remember correctly VydorScope called and found out they were safe). Hope this helps.

If you have a yogurt maker you can make your own and know that it is safe. Does anyone do that? :rolleyes:

I believe that's true as long as you make sure the live cultures you buy are grown from gluten-free stuff.

Last year, when I was very sick(Spent basically May, June and July in the hospital) I was having Dannon Strawberry yogurt I had called the company a few times, and they basically wouldn't say it was or wasn't. But, it didn't make me sick. I was in a low enough state of health that even tiiny cross contaimination was enough to make me horrible ill. But then the meds I was taking were harsh too.

I was one of the few people that I think had a good hospital exp. with the food. The hospital had a gluten free menu. Two of my nurses had celiac children. They had a briefing with all the nurses that worked shifts on the floor and made them aware of what I could and couldn't eat. They did send my plate back a number of times I didn't even know. They also had two different head chefs of the kitchen come up and talk to me. It was Both chefs said they would prepare my meal themselves. The only time my meal was sent back, was breakfast time, when a few didn't realize they couldn't use the deep fry'ers. But the nurses caught it each time(ok once they didn't but they had already warned me)

I was basically told by the hospital nutrionist. order whatever you want, ignore what the "daily menu" has. Order of the gluten free menu, they can make you whatever you want. I enjoyed a plain chicken breast and baked potato(or two) for lunch and dinner. I had eggs for breakfast, and pan fried hash browns (Ore-Ida)

A few of the nurses even went across the street during lunch breaks and bought those delicious Wild Oats gluten free chocolate chip cookies for me. My Dr. actually ordered me to eat half a package of those cookies a day( I had lost 50 pounds in about a month. was only waying 118 for a bit)

In any event I rambled too much. The Danon didn't bother me, the strawberry kind that is. But then they special ordered Yoplait for me after one nurse just said I should have that instead of Danon.

    • Anxiously waiting
      Thanks heaps. I will def be going private if the wait is too long. I have done a little research but i thought a gluten intolerance and coeliac was the same lol. My iron levels are just below average apparently but she said not bad enough for me to be this tired.

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
