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.

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
