Lil Critters Vita Worms are gluten-free, it even says so on the bottle. They taste like gummi worms, so they are easy to get my dd to take them! Centrum vitamins are gluten-free too, the Rugrat ones is what we have used before.

Does anyone know of gluten-free vitamins for kids that do not contain artificial sweeteners? I will even take real sugar over artificial sweeteners.

A friend of mine is involved with a company called juiceplus. They are actually a "whole food source" rather than a manufactured vitamin. I just received the packet in the mail and will be ordering shortly.

They carry capsules for adults, chewables for kids and even a gummi bear, with NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS! If you would like more info, check out www.juiceplus.com and take the tour!

I can also direct anybody who's interested to my friend, david's direct e-mail or can forward info he has already sent me about the products.

You order a 4 month supply, but can pay in monthly installments. I think the kids' varieties are about $22 / month. They also have an offer where each paying adult can get a free supply for the kids, but I'm not sure if this is still available. I can check.

My SIL uses Melaluca (sp) vitamins. They say gluten free and she doesn't use any artificial sweeteners, so I am positive they don't include it either. Let me know if you need me to get more info from her. I also just looked at the Vita worms we are using, and it looks like they don't have any artificial sweeteners either. Plenty of real sugar though! I got them at Wal mart, but I have gotten the bears before by them at Costco.

We use the 365 Brand which is manufactured for Whole Foods Market. It's a chain of health food stores - I think mostly in the South. They don't have any artificial flavors or colors either. Both my kids love them.

The ingredients list of Juice Plus lists barley bran and oat bran; I cancelled my order when it became apparent our household was going gluten-free.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hey guys just looking for a bit of advice. I got 2 positive blood tests for celiac and found out my vit D was very low and parathyroid was elevated about 2 months ago. Went gluten free soon after and haven't cheated. Around the same time I had unrelated health issues that made me extremely constipated and when I finally got over that I felt much better. Now though another month on I seem to have gone back to feeling exactly the same as I did before I went gluten free. I'm having almost all the same symptoms and for the last few days my stomach's been awful. I don't know when I'll finally get to see a gastroenterologist as waiting times on the nhs are crazy and I'm floundering. I've read online it might be a lactose intolerance but I don't really want to cut it out without speaking to a health care professional (I'm vegetarian so already very restricted!). I know it might be too soon to be seeing a difference but I keep hearing about people feeling almost complete better after a couple of weeks so I'm disappointed. I'm also worried I might still be getting gluten but I don't know how sensitive I am/ what I'm reacting to/ how careful I have to be!

      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.
