Tic Tacs G/f?
0

12 posts in this topic

I can't find them on any list....

If they are not, does anyone know of any mints that are gluten free? I find eating mints helps me with the indigestion.....

And also, can you take Immodium and take Pepto Bismol at the same time?

Thanks!

Karen

Tic Tacs contain dextrin which is a questionable ingredient. You would have to contact the manufacturer to find out if the dextrin is derived from wheat. I have one list that has them on it, but I would still call to check if I were you. I believe Lifesavers are gluten-free.

Why would you need to take Pepto Bismol and Imodium at the same time?? If your symptoms are that bad that one or the other doesn't help, then I would suggest seeing your doctor about it.

God bless,

Hi Mariann,

I think I will not take a chance with Tic Tac's..... I have already found a few contaminants that I recently eliminated and don't want to take any chances....

I go to see a Celiac specialist at St. Michael's here in Toronto on August 18th. I was referred to him by my GI dr. because the chronic diarrhea just won't go away. I find that Immodium slows it down a bit where I am only going 4 - 5 times a day instead of 12-14 times a day, but it is still diarrhea, nonetheless.... I was hoping maybe a double shot of Pepto Bismol and Immodium might help it along even more.....

Have a great day!

Karen

Mint, especially peppermint has been proven to help with digestion.

I chew the Dentyne cool mint gum - there are several flavors. I'm pretty sure all Dentyne gums are gluten-free.

Altoids are gluten-free

I know :P I accidentally ate one once without even thinking about it--I really scared myself, but then found out they were gluten-free......close call

I think Tic Tacs are gluten-free; I thought I heard that somewhere; but don't chance it unless you've called the company.

wait! altoids gum is NOT gluten-free. It contains wheat maltodextrin. here's a direct reading of the ingredients:

Gum Base, Xylitol, Isomalt, Sorbitol, Mannitol, Gum Arabic, Oil of Peppermint, Natural Flavor, Artificial Color, Aspartame**, Acesulfame Potassium, Wheat Maltodextrin, Artificial Flavor, Carnauba Wax, **Phenylketonurics: Contains Phenylalanine

I was disappointed when I learned that. :-(

I wouldn't take Pepto and Imodium together because sometimes if I've had a bad day and had to take the maximum Imodium allowed, I get severe stomach cramps, then diarrhea. Taking Pepto with it might make that worse. :P

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      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.
