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:)
Help, what are people doing with the manufacturer's backorder on Levithoid? I was put on Synthroid am had gluten reactions. I'm so discouraged. I take a very small amount so it took 2 months for me to figure it out. Actually my Obgyn did noting my escalating pain was coincidentally when they changed the meds. I became so horrible to my family, starting losing muscle mass despite my continuing with plates and trying to run, foggy brain. I want to scream now because I am having to restart recovery from reactions AND am not on any thyroid meds. Haven't gotten a call back from primary as I don't think she knows what to do. Any help??
I feel your pain! I could not tolerate Synthroid at all. I had horrible headaches and had terrible brain fog. This was before I knew that I had trouble with gluten at all. Well, if it has gluten in it...now I know why. I react to even the smallest amounts of contamination. I put myself in the super-sensitive category on this site, and fortunately those people helped me a ton! Very small amounts build up in me also. After 3 yrs of being on Synthroid and feeling like crap my endo put me on Armour Thyroid. This is the natural version made from dessicated pig thyroid. I must say...THANK GOD!!! I felt so much better, and for the first time...my thyroid was regulated too. My thyroid has been stable for about 3-4 yrs now, and it no longer is an issue for me at all with how I feel. There is a generic version of this too from ACELLA, which I switched to because of insurance. My endocrinologist told me that EVERYONE that he switches from Synthroid to Armour Thyroid love it and NEVER want to go back to Synthroid. That poses the question...why start people on Synthroid in the first place? Why not start them on something natural? That would make too much sense probably. I urge you to go get this prescription ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!! And maybe start checking out the super senstive forum on this site.
