In Topic: Proteolytic Enzymes/probiotics

My GI doctor was against using GlutenEase without proper monitoring over time. I'm reluctant to try it as my recent upper endoscopy showed partial villi damage. The new enzyme DDP-IV (dipeptidyl pepitidase IV) is mostly used to treat Type 2 diabetes. I won't risk further villi damage to promote Enzymedica's claim. It's not a cure nor an Okay to eat gluten(on purpose or hidden) my doctor said.

In Topic: Alcohol And Gluten

I gave up on grain alcohol and beers a long time ago. I drink red wine. I think the alcohol did effect me to much, but now I suspect that the SULFITES therein may be causing some problems of late too. A recent endoscopy showed a mild esophagitis. I don't eat spicy foods. Wine is considered an "acid" type drink and may have produced to much acid in the stomach.

Is there a test for SULFITES sensitivity?

Did you try the Doctor's Directory in this web site? The list goes by states. That is how I found my new Doctor ( GI specilist in Celiac) in New Jersey.

.... have you considered looking for one or two gluten free supplements that might give you the same levels of vitamins? It might be the safest way to go.


thanks for the reply. Yes, I will look for another product now. Back in 2005, I considered this product the best for prostate care.

In Topic: Need Heavy Duty Snack Options

I'm on the same search.
I've tried Enjoy Life's soft baked Snickerdoodle cookies recently. There nut and gluten free. I don't like their NO-Oats Oatmeal cookies because the brown rice flakes tend to be to hard(like not cooked well) to chew.
