just be careful b/c while a fair number of the of the name brands are gluten-free, sometimes their generic "equivalents" are not.

I know that Tri-Ortho cyclen Lo is gluten-free, but my doctor put me on the patch just because they did not want to take any chances.

Espically during the first year or so of the intestine to heal, they just wanted to bypass it totally. I was a little weary of the patch, but it is great. One less pill that you have to worry about.

amanda-
medical patches are made especially to get into your system so if a medical patch has gluten in it , it can cause reactions and get into your body because it is designed to do that..so still make sure it is gluten free.

You only get a gluten reaction if it is passed through the small intestine. This goes directly into your blood stream and should have no effect on you. I belive that it is gluten-free anyways. This is what my doctor had told me.

Yes and with celiac touching gluten will NOT cause a reaction BUT with medical patches they are meant to and made specifically to absorb into your body therefore causing a reaction.

I think I read somewhere the patches are gluten free but I do not know.

I called Berlex Canada and they assured me that Diane 35 is gluten and wheat free.

-swollen ankles
-possible DH: had the rash on my elbows and scalp (gone now)
-joint pain
-childhood arthritis
-all dairy allergy
-dry skin
-fat in stool sample (no connection was made at the time...I was being tested for something else...When the doctor told me of the fat I replied by saying: "I eat alot of olive oil". DUH!!!!)
-mother is allergic to wheat
-ravenous appetite: I eat for 5 people
-light coloured stool
-pass stool 7 times a day sometimes
-hemorrhoids
-get the hiccups alot (not sure if this is related)

I'm sure there are more that I don't recall at the moment. SIGH.
