Cat Food?
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi All,

In one of the threads I read the other day (I'm clueless as to which--sorry!) someone mentioned feeding cats/ "pets" gluten-free food. I feed my kids-- feline, that is-- BG food, both wet & dry. I'm very picky about their food; can anyone tell me how important it is to use gluten-free cat food?

I just emailed the company to check gluten status. Any cat food recommendations would be great...

Thanks!

My cats eat Orijen cat food it's gluten free and high protein. I switched to gluten-free cat food because my cats tend to jump up on the counters and like to rub their faces against my hand. I think it just increased my chance of getting glutened. I don't want to have to remember to wash my hands everytime I pet my cats. Afterall, it's not like my cats can learn to keep their gluten to themselves.

LOL...great observations! My kids actually give kisses, and are all over me & most everything else all the time (of course, I wouldn't have it any other way)! Wash my hands after every touch? I'd have no flesh left!~wub.gif

Thanks for your reply, and your delightful cat humor!

I switched to grain free because my kids don't need grain any more than I do.

Does anyone know if any of the cheaper grocery store brands (the come in the large bags) is gluten free or does not contain any obvious gluten ingredients? I see brewers yeast in all of them I have checked and some also have barely or oats.

    • Kidney disease question
      GFR ranges are very strange.  We went through this with my husband.  Did you notice in Icelandgirl's link that there is no range that is considered good and normal?  I just had mine tested and the report said that normal was > 60.  As your report says, your value is only a problem if there is other evidence of kidney damage.
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt I'd love answers to this one too. My own levels have varied since I have been monitored, over the last three or so years.   I asked my GP about this and I seem to recall she said to me that levels of hydration affect this number.  i.e. when my figures were in the 90s it was because I was super-hydrated. When my numbers were in the 70s she wasn't worried, either! I'm hoping someone with a better knowledge of these matters will chime in but the last time I was tested my gastroenterologist was very pleased with my kidney and liver function numbers - so it seems to me that when my own numbers were in the 70s on a couple of occasions I must have been  less well hydrated when I had the test those times? And that these numbers are therefore subject to variation.

      Kareng is correct.  There are also a number of good reference books on celiacs and gluten free issues.  Also several magazines.  The main thing is to find out the hidden and unusual sources of gluten, and also to be very careful when eating at restaurants.  I got glutened quite a few times at restaurants before I learned to triple check and began to find safe places.  Good luck. 
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt, Since celiac impacts the whole body...I think kidneys are affected.  I have kidney stones and they are super fun(not) and my urologist says that it's fairly common with celiac and malabsorption.  I don't know specifically about kidney disease, but when I was in the hospital passing my stones...prior to passing, my GFR was around 60.  A few weeks later when my doctor did bloodwork it was 87.  Here is some info that may help.   https://www.kidney.org/atoz/content/gfr

      Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease. View the full article

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
