In Topic: Probiotics

So....just to make sure I have this right..Acidopholous is a probiotic, right? I used to take that a loooooong time ago when I was first diagnosed with IBS and the doctor told me I didn't have any good bacteria in my system at all. But the Acidopholous didn't make me feel any better, so I stopped taking it.

In Topic: Eating Makes Me Sick

I ended up having to go to the hospital for the apple incident. They loaded me up on Morphine, though that didn't really help much. For those who have asked..I had a gi doctor when I lived in Texas..but haven't been able to afford to find one here. I don't have any insurance.
I used to be on levbid, flexeril, and bentyl. They never did much good for me. Donnotal doesn't work much either. A combination of flexeril and vicodin generally make me feel closest to normal. The doctor said it's because the codein in vicodin generally makes people constipated, but for people like me it slows the system down for you.
I think the hardest thing about this is I don't even know if I have Celiac's disease...and I can't afford to find out! So sometimes I feel like I'm fighting a useless battle because I'm trying to do all this diet stuff and I still feel like crap and then I think you're wasting your time if it ends up you don't even have this disease.
BUT..here I go anyway. So..I guess I'll try rice (I've noticed a lot of flavored rices have gluten in them, so I assume just white rice). Cooked veggies and maybe a banana. I had just gotten excited to find I could still drink Cokes in another thread..but maybe I ought to get rid of them. Which brings me to another question. I drink Mt. Dew and it doesn't give me the shakes or make me pass out..so why would the sugars in an apple do it?
Also...VAGuy..where in VA are you because I live in Va, too. Maybe you could help me find someone if we're in close areas.
Hmmm...okay, I think I touched on most of the topics..sorry this was so long.

In Topic: Foods, Shampoos, And Other No-no's

Other suspect ingredients are: barley, rye, malt flavorings, food starch, modified food starch, confectioners sugar, and yes, shredded cheeses.

So, if it says these things on the ingredients label..I should stay away from that food, too right? Except the starch I can call the company and ask what type of starch. So..with the wheat thing in the shampoos and stuff..if in the ingredients the word wheat is used at all..even if it's not saying wheat gluten..does that mean I should stay away from that item as well?

Thank you guys for answering. This really helps. I have one more question about reading labels (which is basically what I've been doing anyway to be safe). The obvious ones say wheat gluten or gluten. Is there anything else that I need to be looking for. Or if it doesn't say one of these two things does that mean I'm safe? I had found something yesterday (I can't remember what it was now) that I thought would have gluten in it, yet it didn't have either of those things in the list of ingredients..it also didn't say gluten-free. So...anything else I need to check in the ingredients before I chow down? And I know I've heard some people say things about processed foods..and that some cheeses are dusted with flour and can't be eaten...will these foods say gluten in the ingredients..and will the shampoos/soaps and such have gluten listed in the ingredients? Sheesh it's a lot to look for, lol. :unsure:
