I haven't received an answer from anyone on this - New at this - I'm not sure I'm posting this correctly.
I was diagnosed in Sept.04 by biopsy and blood work. I have no gastro symptons (low iron was the tip off). I have done a lot of research, belong to a support goup and I have many food lists. I felt I was following the diet as best as possible, but after reading many of the topics on this forum, Im afraid that I may be getting gluten inadvertently, i.e, Frito Lay chips, Tums, etc. Should I only be eating "gluten free products" or can I trust mainstream items just by reading the label. Help.

;) i know it is very hard to know what is ok and what isnt---yes, mainstream products are safe as long as we read the labels--as far as i know, tums are safe--they are on the celiac.com list of gluten-free items---some frito lay chips are ok, some arent---read, read, read and if in doubt :unsure: --dont eat the product--sometimes it does seem that gluten is hiding :ph34r: --if you are really worried, then stick with the thngs you know are safe--fresh veggies, fresh fruits, fresh meats--i have been at this for over 3 years now and i still make mistakes :( sometimes i feel that maybe i need to take an adult with me to read labels cause i am only 49 :P ----when you do doubt something you can always ask in here--there will always be an answer for you :D deb

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
