Sorry, I don't know of any places. When I went last year I took all of my food with me. Have you tried talking with the lodge to see if they have any advice?

In Topic: Proctor & Gamble - Avoid This Company- Their Are Good Alternatives

Although getting statements like this is annoying, do you realize how many products and brands P&G makes?

I think if you are more specific about a particular brand / product, or write to that brand directly you might get a better response. Then again maybe not. But sometimes I think we are to quick to condemn a company for not giving us the response we want. Atleast they are willing to research it thoroughly.


I called P & G to ask about corn derivatives in Secret Platinum Invisible Solid and got a similiar response -- have your doctor call us to discuss whether you are allergic to any of the ingredients. I would boycott them but they also carry other products that are corn-free, which no one else carries, that I need.

It's too bad they are so "secretive".

I had to have Tylenol/acetaminophen compounded at a pharmacy. Aleve claims to be corn-free/gluten free, but I had a reaction to it and won't use it any more.

In Topic: Reaction To Amy's Gluten-free Pizza

calm, don't seek insult where it was not intended....

I believe that what bklnceliac meant was that it was not a gluten intolerence reaction, but an allergic reaction. In this case truly looking like anaphalaxis (swollen throat) which would NOT occur with an intolerence. so bkln was recommending that things other than gluten be considered. Thus "true allergy" to contrast with intolerence (which we sometimes discus as LIKE allergy).

I don't believe "allergy must be anaphalaxis" was meant, but rather that "anaphalaxis must be allergy". Planty of us know allergies that result in rash, asthma, and other symptoms.


I apologize, bklynceliac, I wasn't attacking you for your definition of "true allergy reaction" or saying that you are naive and narrowminded. I meant to say that doctors who feel that the only true allergic reaction leads to anaphalaxis need to investigate things further. I know of someone who had an allergic reaction to an OTC medication and the medical personnel denied she was having an allergic reaction because she wasn't anaphalaxis ("you don't pass out with anaphalaxis"), yet the only things that helped were antihistamines & epinephrine. Look at how many people aren't correctly diagnosed with celiacs, because they don't fit within the "norm" of celiac disease.

Again, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to cause any problems.

As long as you are not allergic to corn, you shouldn't have any problem with dextrose made from maize.
