i have been taking it with meals when i eat out in case i accidentally ingest dairy & it helps with gas. i will be in paris for a week and eating out may pose a challenge and i wont be in a position to be too picky with food. would it be ok to take charcoal every day with every meal?

Have no idea...did use on occasional evenings in my youth when we knew we "might" drink to much. I can tell you there is no "easy button" or "magic wand" when planning accidental gluten or dairy consumption.

Do your homework and you to can travel safe.

-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

I've used L-glutamine after accidental allergen consumption. I can't remember if I accidentally ate gluten or one of my other 6 allergies. My doc prescribed L-glutamine to heal my celiac damaged intestines and later to heal my stomach ulcers after having H. Pylori. L-glutamine did relieve the cramping pain somewhat, but not totally after allergy reactions.
