I am on Jamieson vitamins and not having any issues, just to maybe put your mind at ease about the gluten content
I've heard a lot of people had issues with the iron content. I was on a high dose of iron supplements for a full year, so perhaps my system is quite used to it, which is why I'm not having a problem?
Hopefully the folic acid is fine for you - and congratulations!!
I have been gluten free for about 6 months and my husband and I recently started TTC. I went and bought the Jamieson's prenatal vitamin which is clearly labelled "no gluten" and started taking it. Ick! I started having symptoms very similar to my celiac symptoms, but think it might just be a reaction to the iron in the pills. As a young teenager I was moderately anemic and had a similar reaction to just straight iron pills before I started having any celiac symptoms whatsoever. So I went off the vitamins for a while just to make sure that was what was causing it, and felt way better. Recently went to a drop-in Dr who chewed me out a little bit and said at least go on Folic Acid. So I've been taking them for a couple weeks now and found out yesterday I'm pregnant, YAY!! I don't have a family doc to talk to about it, has anyone else had this kind of reaction? Is there anything else I absoloutely need to be taking until I get hooked up with a doc? Thanks!!!
gluten-free since July 8, 2009!
