My husband has suffered for over 20 years that I know of with stomach problems. He has been to all sorts of drs. inc luding a physoicaltist. He takes several meds. and never any change. We've been married for 17 years and together for over 20, and only in the last 5 to 10 years has he really let me know of the things that go on with his stomach and in the bathroom. Because of his health problems we really don't go out much, meaning to eat or movie, just simple dating places and never go on vacation. Well after several doctors and tons of prayers our answers came on March 5, 2007 when I took our 3 yr. old son to his early check up and his dr. has not happy with his growth rate and wanted some blood work done. She says she wanted him to be tested for Celiac dieseaese and I asked her about the symptoms and the symptons she listed sounded just like my husband and I told her that, she said he should be tested also. Well ofcourse I went straight home and informed him of this and he researced Celiac on the internet and said "Oh my gosh they are describing me and my life!" Well that next morning we started his gluten free life with what we had in the house and then off I went to grocery store. He felt great that day!! So it's been over a month now and he still feels better than he did before March the 5th, but has had some bad days. I have done alot of research and have been reading from this forum for a month and it has been such a great help. I have people in my life that have Celiac or gluten intolerance and have been helpful also. I just have so many questions that I don't know where to begin. Just this morning I told my husband to check his toiletress and he had know idea that gluten was also in some shampoos, toothpaste, ect. so we checked and sure enough his shampoo has a wheat protein in it. And his altoids surprised him. Also I think I've read that mylanta or something helps when he feels really bad? He's been using rolaids and I suggested he stop because there was a questionable indredient. I have so many more questions but my 3 yr old is having a melt down at the moment so I must sign off for know.

SORRY FOR THE MISSPELLED WORDS, MY SPELL CHECKS NOT WORKING AND I WAS TYPING AS FAST AS MY BRAIN AND FINGERS WOULD KEEP UP.

Thank you and the gluten-free world:)

I'm not sure about Mylanta, but Pepto Bismo is good stuff. Rolaids are fine, but NOT the soft-chews. I think Tums are questionable too. I also take Pepcid and that's fine.

Welcome to both of you!

Thanks for the info. I just bought him some pepto tablets and the rolaids he takes are chewable also, I not sure what the difference is between chewable and soft-chews though.

Dear T-Bird,

I have a list that should really help. This is overwhelming. I went through this with myself six months ago. You spend most of your day cooking and cleaning obsessively. The rest you are on the phone with reps from companies trying to find out what is safe. I decided to save you the trouble!

1. There are a number of things in the regular grocery that are safe. Some things are labeled already. Wal-Mart's Great Value brand has numerous things you can eat.

2. For the love of God use Coupons on items you are allowed to eat. People can get them and print them out online even. Call some of the local stores and ask if they accept online coupons.

3. Check the ads online and in the newspaper. You would be surprised how many people do not do this.

4. Some items like rice flour and rice noodles are safe to buy at the Chinese or oriental market. The merchants are more than happy to help you if you cannot read the label.

Now, here is my list of great things to get you started:

thanks for so much info noglugirl! do you know much about the glutenease i've been hearing about? my husband has'nt been well for about three days now and not sure why. also is it possible that something could say "gluten free" and not be? that's the only thing i can figure has happened, so i threw the chips away this morning. i guess he should be tested for other allergies also. we have kept dairy out to his diet since we started this on march 5th. what do you know about probotics? how different are probotics compared to glutenease?

Dear PainPill and Tabatha,

You are very welcome for the help! We all understand what you guys are going throught. It is a difficult adjustment to make. I know some foods are not made in dedicated facilities or on dedicated lines. Just because they have no added gluten does not necessarily mean that they are safe. Cross-contamination is a big problem for all of us on here!

The glutenease is a digestive enzyme supplement. Some people on the forum have reported good results from taking it. Certain people just lack the enzyme needed to digest gluten. However, if your husband is Celiac, it will probably not help him much if at all. Celiac is an immune reaction. His immune system is attacking gluten, so any time he ingests it, his intestines are damaged.

A buddy of mine on here, CarlaB has taken it to help her. I think she is gluten intolerant. She could answer this question of yours better than I can.

Probiotics are great to help restore the healthy microfloral balance in the intestines. Bad bacteria can cause dysbiosis. An overgrowth of bad bacteria or low amount of the good bacteria that should be present can cause extreme gastrointestinal discomfort. Antibiotics can cause this. I take Accu-Flora by North West Naturals. It also has prebiotics, which aid probiotics in metabolizing. I definitely feel a difference when I forget to take them. In choosing a supplement, make sure it contains L. Acidophillus, L. Bifidum (I think that is what it is called), L. Plantarum, and L. Salivarius. If those are at the very least in there, the benefits will be good! You can go to a local healthfood store to find a gluten-free, casein-free supplement.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Dear annaleeb,

Just make sure that you are not in Canada. I really wish people would put where they are from. In Canada, as CarrieFaith pointed out, certain items are not safe for Celiacs there that are in the U.S. If you are in the U.S., you are fine. This is list will help. You are very welcome, and don't worry, if you are in Canada, I have a site I can direct you to.

Hi

ya! I can have my 3 muskateers bar, I don't like alot of chocolate (don't hate me for this) all you chocolate haters out there. But that is one bar that I will, love to eat. And IceCream not a lover of it (don't hate me for that either) I have to be in the mood for Ice Cream. My family has to beg me for me to buy them anything sweet at the store because I have never been a sweet eater, but I do have cravings for some sweets but not too much.

Dear annaleeb,

Hey, it is no prob! :) I just wanted to be sure I did not give you a list that could make you ill! Other countries, including Canada, have ingredients that are not safe that are in our nation. Maltodextrin can be derived from wheat there. Here, it is from corn. There are people from the UK on here even!

Welcome to the forum. My local grocery store has a list of gluten free foods and products on their website that you can print out to help with your shopping. I believe this list would be helpful to anyone who has a large supermarket in their city.

Find this list at www.martins-supermarkets,com/cnt/documents/LivingGlutenFreewithMartins.pdf

Healthy Eating!

Dear T-Bird,

I have a list that should really help. This is overwhelming. I went through this with myself six months ago. You spend most of your day cooking and cleaning obsessively. The rest you are on the phone with reps from companies trying to find out what is safe. I decided to save you the trouble!

1. There are a number of things in the regular grocery that are safe. Some things are labeled already. Wal-Mart's Great Value brand has numerous things you can eat.

2. Ftor the love of God use Coupons on items you are allowed to eat. People can get them and print them out online even. Call some of the local stores and ask if they accept online coupons.

3. Check the ads online and in the newspaper. You would be surprised how many people do not do this.

4. Some items like rice flour and rice noodles are safe to buy at the Chinese or oriental market. The merchants are more than happy to help you if you cannot read the label.

Now, here is my list of great things to get you started:

Condiments:

Smart Balance Margerine

Crisco Shortening

Great Value soy sauce

Please don't use that list. It is almost 6 years old. Many items change ingredients over time. Check ingredients before you eat it.

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!

    • Older people often show clinically atypical symptoms of celiac disease, which can delay diagnosis. View the full article
