Lisa...do you know anything about which labs are best to run tests? I read an article about the MD who owns Enterolab, and he has celiac disease. Other than that...I think that which labs do a better job...makes a difference. Right?
That's awesome, thank you! I have started to collect data for many of my doctors, but the infertility specialist is the first that I have approached. He is a very good doctor:) My new neurologist is more informed about gluten, because he has the same issues. He says that we are beyond medical borders at the moment. I am going to forward info to my old neurologist and family physician. I could still use ANY and ALL articles that any of you can find!!! You know that doctors like to see studies and hard facts from credible sources! Keeping them informed of research is a great idea! I just need to know how I stay informed of the latest research?
I have a problem with nightshades too. I get just as bad of reaction as gluten. If I remember right, nightshades contain cytokins which can exacerbate inflammation in the body. Way true for me! Found this out from all of the fantastic people on this forum. Thanks to you all! I have not found any substitutes for them, and I just have to live without them. I am also allergic to garlic and onion. They cause inflammation and bloating. Maybe you should get a blood allergy test if that doesn't work. If I avoid the foods that I'm the most allergic to, and stick to my rotation of the others...no bloating at all. I am often bloated, because I often mess up. Willpower...
Call the pharmacy they will be able to tell you. I get all my meds at Walmart and the pharmacist always checks mine for me.
Thank you. We use Walgreens, and they are not usually helpful since they just read the ingredient list looking for it. I did that already, but the pharmacists can't tell me whether the main ingredient is derived from a process of gluten as secondary. Those ingredients are not required to be listed, or whether they run it on equipment that has had gluten. I am super sensitive, so the pharmacist is no help. Thank you so much for trying though:)
