i am new here. we are trialling our 2.5yr old on gluten free due to behavioural and sleep issues. within a week we noticed a huge change, she was so pleasant and sleeping really well too. until yesterday. the only difference is yogurt i gave her. it was ski dlite honey buzz. is that a bad one with hidden gluten?

has tapioca as a thickener....I would suggest sticking with more natural, less "altered" versions of yogurt......

Fage is nothing but milk and enzymes. You can add any flavoring/fruit you want.

If you are in the U.S. companies cannot hide gluten. It must be labeled (outside of the obvious things like a loaf of wheat bread or whathaveyou).

I found 2 pages that gave me nutrition information (calories, etc.) but neither had the ingredients for this yogurt. I avoid all except plain yogurt due to 'natural flavors'. They may or may not be gluten-free, but they likely contain free glutamates (i.e. very close to MSG) which bother me. I recently found a plain yogurt that I used to like, turns out it also has pectin added so I didn't get it since I didn't feel like experimenting.

Yoplait says gluten free right on it --- but it's in small letters - you have to look closely. Chobani & Okios (sp?) are gluten free.

Stoneyfield Farms makes the best (in my and many other's opinion) yougurt in the world. It has six different strains of probiotics, it is sweetened with sugar instead of corn syrup, it's 100% organic, and it is delicious. I get it at my local health food store for $5.19 a quart. I usually get french vanilla because I have problems with fruit. (All they carry at this store is french vanilla or plain.) If vanilla doesn't thrill her, you could always add your own fruit or even jelly.

I think Activia has wheat in it! I looked about a year ago and it had it.

I used to eat Yoplait alot until I gave up dairy altogether. Now just Proboitic pills for me.

Activa is made in a shared facility. Depending on the flavor, it does not have wheat in it except for the breakfast blends i believe, i could be wrong.

I actually sprung for a yogurt maker and make my own now. I've read, but never tried, that you can do it in a crockpot or even with a heating pad. My other thought is that she might have an issue with dairy? My son does ok with cheese, but when we used to give him milk he would be up all night.

This isn't dietary, but some of my friends have had good luck with doing epsom salt baths at night to help with sleep.

Just glancing through and they have at least 2 varieties, Breakfast and Fiber with cereal? That have wheat. The plain doesn't seem to but it says processed in a shared facility. Like everything else, read the labels every time!

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
