Thanks for the info. Being new to the celiac diease has us looking into everything including medicine.
Welcome to the board.
I have looked at the manufacturer's information about Levemir, and don't see any ingredient in either version that would have gluten. Since gluten acts as a thickener, it would be the last thing you would want in an injectable solution.
Celiacs, especially new ones, are often quick to blame any reaction on gluten, but many times the cause is something else. If celiac disease has caused damage to the body, additional secondary sensitivities may appear. Many of these go away once the body has a change to heal on the gluten-free diet.
I use Lantus and Humalog and have had not problems.
If confirmed, this would be the first instance I have ever seen of gluten in an injectable solution.
