In Topic: Mcdonalds New Angus Burger

26 May 2011 - 05:54 PM

I'm bumping this thread..when I posted in July 2009 the angus burger contained wheat, and 6 months later they changed the seasonings, which I only found out about now! My non-gluten-free daughter wants to go there, and since my gluten-free son wanted a toy and apple dippers, I decided to re-check the allergy info. I was wondering if anyone else has been brave enough to order a burger sans bun at McDonalds lately.

In Topic: Has Anyone Taken These Medications For Dh?

Sulfapyridine has some of the same side effects as dapsone, and it's probably pricey since it's an orphan drug.
Nicotinamide, from what I've searched, is used in conjunction with another drug like a tetracycline, not alone.

In Topic: Iodine Attack!

Antihistamines do nothing for DH (except if you take enough of them to make you fall asleep). DH isn't a histamine response, it's another part of the immune system. I've found that Sarna lotion (the one without the menthol) works great. It contains the painkiller that's in Neosporin Pain and it works great to dull the itching.

As for iodine, you don't need to go iodine free, just don't use iodized salt and avoid shellfish and seaweed for a few months. There's enough iodine in the rest of your food to make sure you get enough (you don't need much). NSAIDS also can aggravate DH, use Tylenol instead of Advil or Aleve for awhile too. Good luck!

Sarna Lotion sensitive (the one that doesn't have menthol) has a painkiller, it works great and helps a lot.

I would go to glutenfreedrugs.com. Print out his list of gluten free drugs and send it to the hospital before you go, so the hospital pharmacist knows which meds to give you. Brand name Percoset is gluten-free according to the list. Because of the way they're formulated (liquids, not solid pills) injectable drugs don't have gluten in them, so if for some reason you have to have a c-section (I hope not), you don't have to worry about the spinal or the IV on top of everything else. Besides, they don't ever go though your digestive system so they're safe.
