Could it be that my DH is from using Swheat Scoop Cat Litter? It's made from wheat. If so does this mean I can't touch my cats?? OMG! I need a therapist. Tomorrow I'll change the cat litter, but to what? World's Best is corn based. Maybe I'll try Yesterday's News, which I think is made from old newspapers. Watch...I'll be allergic to ink too! I'm afraid to move.

Laura Grace

65 years old. Diagnosed with GERD at age 63. Started feeling bloated after eating bread & rolls in 2012. After doing online research ate gluten-free for a week & symptoms resolved. Symptoms returned when I glutened. That's good enough for me. Because testing is often inconclusive will not get tested. In 2012 had colonoscopy and endoscopy which showed no damage to the villi. In February, 2013 had capsule endoscopy which showed no damage to the villi or intestines. Diagnosed by gastroenterologist with 'probable non-Celiac sensitivity. Time to get serious before damage occurs.

Try Yesterday's News. There's a brand called Exquisicat that makes litter out of pine, corn, wheat, and paper. Not all in one! Lol I've been using the pine one and it smells good too :) You can find them at Petsmart. good luck to you and your kitty(s). :)

And yes some people have reactions just from touching gluten.

I use plain clay based litter, the cheapest I can find, and some folks will add plain baking soda to it to control odors.
I wouldn't use the wheat based since I don't want to breathe in the dust and kitties will track the wheat all over and when they clean their paws they can distribute the wheat all through their coats. The same applies to pet food with wheat ingredients.
