Hi Ladies!!

I'm looking for a good Gluten Free Prenatal Vitamin! With extra folic acid and dha would be great! Liquid would be great too!! But of course it must be 0 gluten!! Last post I found was from 2007!! A bit old in my opinion.

So what do you take? Thanks in advance!!

Yeah, I noticed that post was kinda old too..

Have you asked your Dr.? What did he recommend?

Why do you need one with DHA?

I currently take Prefera OB but you need a prescription for it.

I'm afraid I don't know any good advice myself. The one my doctor prescribed contained a very high dose of folic acid (5 mg)and was so impudently expensive that, after some research and musing, I decided not to take it. I have to add that I am not a properly examined celiac, but have been on a diet for a long time. I just take Materna (huge, pink bricks, almost impossible to swallow) with 1 mg Folic Acid, and lots of omega-3-pills (made out of seaweed so that they don't taste of fish).

However, it would be interesting to know how much folic acid and Vitamin D the doctor recommended to you (everyone)?

Both amounts she recommended seemed very high dosage to me.

Thank you!

I take a b 12 suppliment and folic acid, rather than a prenatal vitamin. I have a b12 deficiancy, so in addition to the shots, they put me on the suppliment as well! The Nature's Bounty brand clearly states No Gluten :)

Since going gluten-free, I have switched to New Chapter Organics whole foods vitamins (non-GMO). Now that I am pregnant, I am taking Perfect Prenatal (a multivitamin) and Wholemega Prenatal (fish oil) for DHA. Since I can't have dairy, I also take their Bone Strength Take Care for (plant-sourced) calcium which also contains D3, magnesium, K1, and K2. According to their website, the above-mentioned products are the only 3 they recommend during pregnancy, and all the labels state gluten free.

    • Hey guys, the last year and a month of transitioning to totally gluten free was hard, but I now seem to be healthy. The first six months I got horrible cramps that would suddenly come and hit hard, but I really havent seen any of those since about February-March. One thing that I wouldnt say has gotten better is my psyche. I was always sort of an anxious person (hard not to be when you dont feel well yet you have "IBS" and you're just "nervous", which all of you probably know), but I am borderline hermit now. I finally went to the doctor today and was prescribed prozac, so hopefully that helps, but I was just wondering about you guys? Thanks  
    • Thank-you, thank-you! I am so relieved to have input from others who have experience with celiac disease. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the school cafeteria. I'll ask our very nice and experienced Cafe Mgr for realistic info and details. My primary concern is the safety of my daughter and packing a lunch will not be that big a deal, even though she prefers the fresh prep instead of lunchbox offerings. Sigh. It sounds as if the 504 is unquestionably the preference over the IHCP, since the 504 is binding and follows the student through his/her academic career. I have a meeting with the admin team on Tuesday. Until then, I'm reading lots so i can be informed. And, dkader, I sent you a private message via the blog's feature. I'd certainly love to read the 504 info you have squirreled away. Thank-you so much!
    • The risk of a non-celiac getting intestinal lymphoma is extremely tiny.  The risk of someone with refractory celiac disease is higher (I think maybe double?) but 2 x extremely tiny is still extremely tiny, and an elevated antibody level is not enough to say you have the refractory version.  You could have a repeat endoscopy to look for damage.  Are you still having symptoms?
    • Hello... i got dignoised July 11th... since then I found out I can't handle corn, garlic or dairy.... her stomic might be extra sensitive right now.... im not a doc but I have noticed with out those three foods I have felt better but I belive I might have to cut out more  good luck with you child!!! Its hard
    • About the dairy...I have been giving her lactose free milk and she doesn't have much else for dairy. I am lactose intolerant and I get nausea right away and then get diarrhea later. My daughter doesn't seem to have the same type of reaction I do, so I don't think it's that. For those that are lactose intolerant, were you sick right after eating lactose, or did it take a few hours or days?
