In Topic: Why to be careful with Lotions, makeup, shampoos etc.

16 June 2004 - 10:54 PM

It's amazing how many shampoos have wheat protein as an ingredient! Yellow Number 5 is common too. (Can cause asthma) I have a sensitivity to many frangrances as well as gluten and yellow #5...try finding unscented shampoo!!! As someone mentioned there is a unscented neutrogena if you can find it but it doesn't agree with my hair. My longtime favorite shampoo is Orgene Herbal which is almost impossible to find also...I'm pretty sure it is gluten free but I'm going to contact them as I haven't been able to find a bottle of it at my usual NYC health food stores, so I report my findings!
Good luck y'all, stay strong!

In Topic: Teeth Problems?

13 June 2004 - 02:07 PM

Hi! I'm new to this forum but longtime celiac (see my profile)
All I have to say to people with kids with celiac is to try to explain to them that tooth care is especially important because of the celiac disease!! I remember feeling as if I was being tortured for some reason (I thought cosmetic and greedy dentists ) which I didn't care about, especially since my teeth were NEVER WHITE!
Somehow I never knew my tooth problems were celiac related! Maybe my mom did but she was kinda messed up, often ill and probably was a celiac herself... I do remember having my baby teeth drilled and many many dental visits as a child(including various braces),so by the time I was an adolescent I had a mental block about dentists and my teeth ( which never got white, so I got frustrated about brushing) In my late teens and 20's (when I wasn't gluten free) I lost a couple of teeth and twice teeth crumbled when be cleaned or filled. Since then it hasn't been too good...I do remember a dentist telling me I didn't have much enamel and that my teeth were translucent... In the last 10 years the bleaching toothpastes/products have lightened my teeth a bit but I think they may have also weakened them...
I've had to have root canals ,some of which just didn't work and some crowns that fall off...I actually gave up on seeing dentists for a while because I seemed to be worse off after seeing them. (Besides I couldn't afford them) Now I have to get a couple of teeth pulled (finally have some dental) and would like to get a couple of implants, but from what I've been learning about celiac,teeth and bone loss...I bet they'll tell me I'm not a candidate!!!!
So let's all get the dentists to help out with this celiac side-effect/diagnosis!
Hope this has helped someone!

In Topic: Nice Eyelashes!

13 June 2004 - 01:12 PM

Just saw the long lashes "symptom" at medline (I think).
I had some blood tests at a gastroenterologist (not a celiac specialist as far as I know) because I was diagnosed as a child but never tested since (but have tried to avoid gluten the last 20 years) and was wondering what the tests will show...no results yet but the doctor was quite short and had THE LONGEST EYELASHES I"VE EVER SEEN!!! I commented on them but he didn't say anything....
I will definitely ask him if he might be celiac!!
