I want to know lists... What do I avoid? How do I avoid it if I don't know what carries gluten? Being given the celiac blood test this week and hurting, hurting, hurting...

Shampoos, toothpastes, soaps, drinks, cream cheese? Where do I get these lists?

The forbidden list will help you out...I gave you the link to that in your other post.http://www.celiac.com/st_main.html?p_catid=12
Here it is again and the forbidden list will help you as a guideline for what is questionable and what you need to avoid.

I eat Kraft cream cheese..all you have to do is check the label because they will not hide anything...these companies are a Godsend.

Toothpastes...all Crest and Colgate is gluten free

Dove is a brand that will not hide anything either so I use their shampoo, soap, conditioner and hairspray

Softsoap liquid soap is gluten free

http://www.celiac.co...-17105445293.27
This is a link to some mainstream items lists of some stuff that is gluten free

All pepsi, co. softdrinks are gluten-free, coke has a list they'll send you.Try to avoid generic brands. Don't get the supermarket colas, as they aren't necessarily gluten-free. You often need to call to check.

100% juices are gluten free
Milk is gluten free and some soymilk is but with soymilk you need to check from brand to brand. I love silk soymilk and they have alot of gluten free products.

There are alot of great gluten free foods its a matter of finding the brands that are good...everyone here will help you out..

If you have any questions just ask :D

Also, the delphi list is also a godsend. I don't go shopping without it.....

www.delphiforums.com

click on Health & Wellness on the left hand side.

The first forum to pop up is the celiac forum.

Their list is in convenient category form. Makes it easier for shopping.

Yes, I forgot about that. The Delphi list is 79 pages long and awesome. celiac3270 posted about it and gave directions for how to get it:

1) Go to the website, http://forums.delphi...om/celiac/start
2) Click on "messages" or "start reading"
3) Select the folder "gluten-free Product List"
4) Click on the topic called "Downloadable files word"
5) Of the four options, choose the one in the upper right.

What's so frustrating is that while coke and icecream can be gluten free often they have CORN in them!!!!

That's ok. Don't think I'll be doing milk for a while cause I am hurting... Staying away from starchies for a while.
