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.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
