Need Vitamin Brand Suggestions
0

8 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone

I need to take a Multi, Vit D and Iron?

I am looking for gluten-free vitamins online and found some but they dont all carry everything. I wanted to try to order online or go to a store and get all 3 at one time (to make it easy each time I need to refill, you know)?

Any suggestions on a brand?

Exciting Note: Been gluten-free for a year but with some problems so I went to a Celiac Research Center in NYC. I had bloodwork drawn, a bone scan and have an endo scheduled for the end of the month (and meeting with the nutritionist at same time)SO I may have more information as to what to take then (digestive enzymes I wonder about as well as probiotics.....), but figured I would get vitamin brand recomendations from you guys all since you guys are the true experts.

Thanks again!

Hi :)

I buy Sundown at my market. They state gluten free on the label and have taken them for nearly a month now with no reactions. And they're not expensive.

I spent thousands of dollars on vitamins (whole food supplement, "pharaceutical-grade supplements, etc). The only vitamin I've literally seen a change in my bloodwork from is Isotonix. It was recommeded by my homeopathic doctor due to my absorption issues. It comes in a powder form and you mix it with water and take it on an empty stomach. If you take it as they instruct, it's has the same makeup as blood plasma and is absorbed within 10 minutes. Of course, the whole product line is gluten free. I take the multi twice a day and the OPC-3 (i think it's called) twice per day. And the calcium every few days. You can get the multi with or without iron.

I take a liquid form of Vitamin D @ 4,000 IU per serving. I can't recall the name brand.

FYI, All the vitamins I take are a bit pricey, but seem worth every penny.

I check out all my vitamins (except for Isotonix) on consumerlab.com to ensure their purity and potency.

I use the Vitasorb range from Biocare https://www.biocare.co.uk They are drops which you put under your tongue to ensure you absorb the vitamins, if your stomach and intestines are damaged from Gluten it sometimes can not absorb the vitamins from pills or even liquid. Using Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid made a big difference for me.

This is all great feedback, thank you all.

I was concerned with taking a big old hard vitamin and if we celiacs actually "absorb" it.

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
