Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Hi, I've not had any trouble with the DM type of tussin or robatussin.
I think like some vitamins they change formulas from time to time so I always check the label.

This was one of the first things I had to hunt down for myself, and I checked it recently, too :
Vicks liquid medicines of every type (the cough drops contain gluten)

Thanks - Cough syrup is one of those things that when you need it, you need it immediately. The worst part of "shopping" for it, is when the manufacturer closes at 5 PM and you're in the drugstore or supermarket buying it and it's after 5 PM and you can't get an answer but you need the medicine badly. At that point you are wishing the manufacturer would just print GLUTEN FREE on the package/bottle. I called Mucinex today and of course they said that the ingriedents do not contain any gluten but they don't test for gluten after they make it.
