Nature's Domain Dog Food Ok?

01 December 2014 - 06:12 PM

Does anybody have experience with Kirkland's natures domain dog food? Particularly the yellow bag of beef and sweet potato flavor. They are rain free dog foods but I know you can't be certain of some of the other ingreidents when it comes to pet products.

Trouble With Aleve?

30 October 2014 - 11:17 PM

Does anyone here have trouble with Aleve?

I know that there are no gluten ingredients in the caplets but the company says that due to cross contamination their product might not be suitable for celiacs.

However all of the threads I've found on it are very old but have many Celiacs saying they've never had a problem with it. I am trying to identify what I got glutened with last week. I usually take the kirkland vrand aleve which are labelled gluten free and have never caused a problem but I was on a trip and took name brand aleve for 2 or 3 days in a row and symptoms popped up. It could have been something else though, I'm losing my mind trying to figure this out.

Help! Nerium Age Defying Cream And Oats - Freaking Out Here!

22 July 2014 - 01:48 PM

I started using Nerium about 6 months ago after the company and the friend I buy it from both assured me that the products are all gluten free. Meanwhile I have definitely been feeling different - at times I think maybe I'm getting glutened somewhere and at others I think no, because I have such a consistent reaction to gluten and this hasn't been a full blown reaction. I started to narrow down my reactions to corn products or to at least be certain that corn exacerbates my pain so today I started going through all my products out of curiosity to see what may have corn lurking in it. 


I checked my Nerium labels and the day cream has oats in it!!! How can they claim their product is gluten free if it has oats? I ALWAYS react to oats in lotions, etc. I am waiting on a call back from the company - maybe they use certified gluten free oats? I do not have problems with gluten free oats but I can't use lotions from Bath and Body works or other places that have regular oats or oatmeal in them. I have to be very careful. 


I am really freaked out about this. I have not felt well at all since I started this product BUT I started it literally the day my husband and I separated and I"ve been under a ton of stress and have attributed my ill feelings to that. And I'm not having full blown typical gluten reactions. I am mortified that I never checked the label myself - I've never done that before. It's been a long three years of learning how to do this gluten free diet right and the last two years I haven't slipped up other than one time accidentally using a Bath and Body works lotion with oats. I immediately got hives head to toe and jumped back in the shower and scrubbed off with no further reaction. 


I am mortified. Does anyone have any experience with Nerium???

Needing Help From Anyone With Corn Problems :(

22 July 2014 - 11:10 AM

Hi everyone! I haven't been on here in a long time. Three years of being gluten free and doing well other than this chronic, ongoing awful pelvic pain. It gets much worse at times and a little better at other times. It took me until about a year ago to realize I am sensitive to corn and when I cut out corn chips and corn tortillas and anythign made with flour I had remarkable improvement. I am still miserable off and on though and I am wondering just HOW much I need to avoid corn. For example I still drink sodas and those have HFCS and carmel coloring. I know for a hard fact that I can't have a whole list of candies and I have researched them and found that all of them have corn syrup as the first ingrediend. I react very badly to all of those (marshmallows, starburst, tootsie rolls, etc). So I have cut all of those things out of my diet but I do still have the pelvic pain and pain with BMs so I'm wondering for those who have issues with corn, do you avoid HFCS and corn starch?Baking powder? What about xanthan gum? I know all of these things are garbage anyway and as of today am starting back on an eliminatiion diet of corn products this time but its SO overwhelming as it seems that corn is in EVERYTHING. I am just hoping someone can give me some insight or personal experience. I experimented two days ago and ate a handful of corn chips and I'm paying for it so badly ever since. Excruciating pain and been on the toilet all day. I will never do that again and I"m so determined to figure this thing out once and for all! 


Also, I've done quite a bit of research today on GMO corn and HFCS and its health dangers, I'm just still a bit confused and I think more wanting to hear from anyone that has similar problems that can tell me I'm not crazy, it will get better and definitely avoid these certain ingredients (which are?)


Thank you!

Kirkland Anti-Diarrheal?

07 January 2014 - 12:14 PM

I am going through a divorce and it's horrible. I've had diarrhea for 5 days and I any afford to be losing weight. Besides all of the scary what-if stuff going on in my head (having to get roommates that have gluten in the house, dating with celiac, etc) I immediately just want to stop this diarrhea so I can start feeling better. I hate taking pills and haven't taken an anti diarrheal since before my celiac diagnosis does anyone know if kirkland anti-diarrheal is gluten free? I can't seem to find information but I have a ton of that medicine here.
