In Topic: Possible Gluten Linked To Cataracts

13 April 2009 - 06:27 AM


I am 20 years old, have celiac disease and cataracts. The optometrist told me it is because I have fair skin and light eyes and have had too much sun exposure. I grew up in Mobile, AL and spent everyday I could at the beach so this could be true. It is very interesting that you brought up this topic though. It never crossed my mind that these two could have anything to do with each other.

Thanks guys, for all your comments. I don't feel so silly hearing that all of you have similar issues.

Anyone know if Reliv Classic is Gluten Free? I can't find any info on it except some opinions from some forums. I need a good vitamin and I know that one is a good one. My husband loves it.

I have noticed that it's not my entire leg that hurts anymore, it's now mainly my upper legs. And I do think it is much worse when I accidently get into some gluten.

Thanks for all your suggestions - Which multi-vitamin would you recommend?

I really like the Reliv products. They are pretty expensive though.

I have never been tested for any deficiencies. Should I ask my doc to do that. I need a good doctor. My doc back home in Mobile sort of diagnosed it. And I did the rest. He was awful, he laughed at me. I now live in Birmingham, AL - know of any good doctors near me?

It feels like growing pains. That's what I always called them growing up. Extremely achy. I would hit my legs so hard they would bruise. I've had this problem for as long as I can remember.

If it is still just a gluten issue, could there be a possibility I'm still eating some form of gluten? If so, why have all of my other problems stopped.

Would it be crazy to say that different forms of gluten cause different problems?
For example: Foods obviously containing gluten like bread, battered foods, or pasta cause pain in my chest within 15 minutes of eating it. So much that I vomit. If I do not vomit and am able to keep it down, my legs and head will hurt along with bad gas, bloating, and acid reflux.

Simple things like candy that you would never think contained gluten or wheat cause headaches and leg pains hours or a day later.

Do I sound crazy?

Thanks guys, for all your help. I'm doing the best I can to feel better. Hope all is well with everyone.

Hey guys,

I need the best recipe for Dressing. I see the one above but I want to cook it in the oven so it will be crunchy.

Also.. does anyone know if it's better to make a cake from scratch or buy a boxed one?

If you know of a good box of yellow cake mix let me know!
