I need a suppliment. I can't keep anything in me for so long. Can I take Ensure or is there a suppliment that will not cause problems?

Based on this website I found both Pedialyte and Ensure are gluten-free.

I don't know how old those product statements are so you might want to check the company's website just to be sure. Good luck and I hope you feel better!

I am not sure I understand. What kind of supplement are you looking for?

2 1/2 years ago when I got so dehydrated before diagnosis, I drank pedialite and continued to drink it for about a month after diagnosis. I needed to get some nutrients in me. I really don't think that that has any gluten in it, because I would have thrown it up like I did all other food. A little over a year ago, I lost more weight with our move to a smaller home. I drank high protein Ensure several times a day and I know then that it was gluten free.

Hi,

I drank Ensure (choc or straw) about 1 a day for about the first 2 months on the diet with no problem for me except for the cost. Everything it seemed in the beginning with the exception of naturally gluten free food came with sticker shock. I was eating a lot of food in addition to this supplement and everything was ok.

Problem is I am unable to keep any foods from coming out in the form of D. Also, I cannot eat corn, rice or any soy, eggs or milk products. Does Ensure have any of those in them.

I know that Ensure is gluten free, it says so on the label. BUT it has tons of soy in it and started making me sick after drinking it for a couple of days, and I don't have a soy intolerance (that I know of). So maybe look into something else that doesn't rely so much on soy protein.

Hope this helps.

That list is great. I'm going to add it to my favorites. Thanks

For dehydration, I've been drinking Gatorade as it's gluten free (here in Australia at least). I don't think it has corn/soy/dairy in it either. I have a hard time getting enough water down

I bought pedialyte (or the equiv. here) but I haven't had to use it yet because I'm feeling better already. The chemist said that it was gluten free, but I'm not sure about corn/soy/dairy etc..

If you are severly dehyrdated, you need to get to a doctor asap. Dehydration is no joke and I don't think pedialyte would help enough at that stage.

I've been to the hospital emergency room 3 times in the last week and they give me IV solution and I wonder if the IV solution has anything that would make me ill. My doctor comes back tomorrow and I have an appointment. My GI appointment is still one week away (next Monday) and can't get in anytime sooner as I am a new patient. I'll call the pharmacy (chemist) and see if pedialyte is ok. Thanks

Sorry. Was resting. Yes, I stopped gluten exactly 2 weeks ago and saw some improvement in dizziness and upset stomach, but my bowels contined to get worse. Now I'm really bad with D and weight loss.

Did you ask what was in the IV? You gotta make sure to do that with anything and everything that goes into your body - even if it's at the hospital, they won't know unless you ask them sometimes :s It's like if you're allergic to penicilin and they give it to you because you don't have an allergy alert tag or can't tell them.. Not good!
