6 posts in this topic

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.com/st_main.html?p_catid...-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

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.delphiforums.com/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.

    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
