I could not find current info on Barh & Body Works products, so I contacted them. This is the response I got:

We appreciate you taking the time to contact us in regards to the products that we offer. It is wonderful to know that you enjoy our selection and assortment.

We don't have a list of gluten free products; however, we are happy to provide you with the ingredients for any product we offer. We cannot make any guarantees that gluten does not appear in trace amounts due to the processing of other ingredients and 2nd or 3rd generation by-products (the ingredients used to make the ingredients). We always recommend that you check with your physician prior to using any product you may be concerned with. We have listed some ingredients to watch out for below.

Gluten includes:

Oat: or any ingredients containing the genus species name Avena Sativa

Barley: or any ingredients containing the genus species name Hordeum Distichon

Rye: or any ingredients containing the genus species name Secale Cereale

Haha. Sounds like your husband is a great catch. ;)

Thanks for the input. I'm generally a big fan of erring on the side of caution. When I'm at home, I don't wash my hands as frequently as I do in public. So, if I touch something covered in gluteny lotion and use the same hand to hold an apple or touch my mouth, I could be in trouble. And I can't seem to break the bad habit of always having my hands in/on my face.

Anyway... I think I am just dragging my feet because I will have to clear out a lot of the otherwise awesome products in my bathroom now. Thanks for encouraging me to choose wisdom.

Their antibacterial lotion had wheat germ oil too. I have to read their labels carefully. People could use that on their hands and then eat!

For hands I use Vaseline intensive rescue repairing moisture --- fragrance free, hypoallergenic. Go to www.vaseline.com for ingredients list. There are no wheat, barley or rye ingredients in it. I love the way it works.

You can doctor up almost any good unscented lotion or oil using essential oils. Just an idea...

    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥    
    • New to forum! Appreciate all of the information.  I have Kaiser as many of you do.  My ttg is 1.18 (Kaiser <90), iga 31 (Kaiser <90). I have emailed my pcp in regards to where we go from here.  Is this a positive result or just a little above normal like Kaiser will tell me? I have had conflicting symptoms of some sort of inflammatory problem for 9 years.  I am almost convinced that this might be my answer. Can anyone give insight?
    • I eat them with no issues and know several other Celiacs that eat them with no issue.
