Enzymes For Gluten

21 January 2013 - 06:39 AM

Haven't been on here in a long time! In lieu of the article Celiac.com put out today about research furthering on a new "celiac" pill, which would be a lab created enzyme to break down the peptides. My brain is swirling. We travel overseas half the year. We are in anywhere from Europe to 3rd world countries. I always get contaminated as eating in some countries is impossible (I almost never have access to my own kitchen). Just got back from Colorado, which is downright amazing for always having gluten-free selections, but even there I got sick. I usually don't think much about it and chalk it up as part of having Celiac. I have some alone time in the potty and move on even whilst feeling nauseous and seeing green going up the gondola! #ihatemyintestines #yolo

My question, do any of you take enzymes that you think help, work, or even allow to you pick around gluten foods and survive a long night without the toilet? Yes, yes, we all know that picking off the toppings of a gluten infested pizza is a death sentence, but when you are in a 3rd world country, sometimes it's your ONLY option. Ive been there so many times I could fork my own eyeballs out! At home, I never get sick. And my intestines love me for it! But, as soon as that 1st airplane meal is served, the dice have been rolled!!!!
