Does anyone know of a vitamin I can buy for my 4 y/o son? He has been taking My First vitamins (Flintstones), but I called today to find out if they are gluten-free, and they could not verify. Thank you.

My son takes Centrum or Jaimeson multivitamins. In Canada they are gluten-free.

Hi,

I'm 13 yrs. old w/Celiac. I used to take flinstones, too. My mother found another vitamin, "Animal Parade". It doesn't say gluten-free (gluten free) on the container, but when she called the company, they said they were gluten free. They're chewable, which is nice. Hope this has helped. Vitamins are very important for Celiacs since we don't absorb all our nutrients, anyway. Good luck.

Colter is right, the Twin Labs Animal Parade Cherry flavored are gluten-free, as are Twin Labs Animal Friends Multi-vitamin, also Sesame Street Complete and Bugs Bunny Chewables are also supposed to be gluten-free.

God bless,

Mariann

I was so happy to find out that my children's favorite brand of vitamins is in fact gluten free and dairy free! They are the L'il Critters Gummy Vites. They look like gummy bears, but are a multi-vitamin with minerals. I can get them at costco for around $10 for 200 vitamins. My kids love em, and are fine just eating 1-2 a day (recommended dose is up to 2 a day). You have to be careful though if your child knows how to open up safety caps, they might eat too many!

I stopped getting them, since the old bottle didn't say on the label and they label only had the address, not a phone # or e-mail. But the new bottle lists on the package that they do not contain: gluten, dairy, artificail colors, flavors or preservatives. Yeah!!

God bless,

    • 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!
