Gluten In Glue? E-6000 In Particular...
0

7 posts in this topic

It seems I read somewhere that glues can have gluten in them. I need to use E-6000 tonight for a project and I cannot find the information on ingredients anywhere. There aren't ingredients on the package or listed on the website or any other page I have googled. The package just says it contains perchlorethylene. Does anybody have experience with e-6000? I'm super sensitive and don't want to take any chances.

We love that glue. Not sure what's in it. Why not wear gloves or use something to spread it and touch with like a toothpick or Popsicle stick or your friends finger?

It is waterproof so I'm guessing it's all chemicals and nothing natural.

I was more worried about inhaling it, so I guess since its not a powder that shouldn't be an issue anyway? There are lots of chemical hazard warnings but no allergen warnings so I would think you are right.

I have called about some glues and they are gluten-free. There is very little or nothing in modern glue that can be identified as " natural".

And you should be. Not a gluten issue though. Make sure you keep windows open or use it outside as you don't want to breathe in the vapor. If I remember correctly the vapors may also be flammable so that ventilation is vital.

I think the non-toxic water soluable glues and pastes are the ones more likely to be wheat derived.

I've definitely heard that envelopes are not safe to lick, neither were stamps (but those are all stickers now)

Hi and welcome to the forum.

There are many myths that circulate on the internet about gluten on stamps, envelopes, etc. but they simply are not true.

Please read this article by Tricia Thompson, RD--a celiac nutrition specialist.

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
