In Topic: Teeth Cleaning

03 June 2011 - 05:49 AM

The only reaction I ever had was to the gums used in many dental impression material.


Hi. I was just logging on the forums to ask this very question and found this thread. I'm due to be having impressions done to have a night guard made, and was wondering about possible gluten in the impression material. Apparently this can be an issue. Does anyone know if there is an alternative substance?

Thanks!

In Topic: New Skin Liquid Bandage - Gluten?

23 December 2010 - 08:44 AM

I don't know if New Skin is safe or not, but until you hear more (let us know, too), I'd get out the hydrogen peroxide to thoroughly cleanse your wound to prevent infection and then use a Band Aid.


Yeah, that's pretty much what I've been doing. Used a couple of kinds of disinfectants, and I DID have a band-aid on while washing the chicken, but the washing knocked it loose. I go through SO many band-aids what with washing my hands so many times a day!

But, yes, good advice (and I'll definitely let you all know when/if I hear back from the New Skin company).

In Topic: Sorting Glutening From Lingering Detox?

03 October 2010 - 12:41 PM

Raven and SGWhiskers, thank you both for the support and advice. I think you're right, it must be CC. But I'm still having to really struggle to figure out HOW. I do have separate hand towelsk, condiments, etc.. My husband doesn't bake with flour and we clean any "glutened" area well and are careful about dishes, dishwasher, etc.

SGWhiskers - wow, that's a horrible list of your past glutenings. Sound like your ultra sensitive. I may end up with a similar list by the end of the year... <_<

Still, no way but forward, right? :)

I'm trying very hard to assure all soaps, face soaps, hand soaps, etc., are gluten free, but it's sometimes difficult to tell from the labelling. Is there a good list of gluten free soaps and cosmetics somewhere?

In Topic: Experience And Service At Outback Steakhouse

02 October 2010 - 07:42 AM

Very glad to hear this, thanks for sharing!:) Outback is the only place near us that seems to work with gluten-free needs, so I'm trying to work up my nerve to make that my first "dining out" attempt since going gluten-free. I haven't called our local place yet, but I definitely will before trying it. If I get brave enough to try, I'll let you all know how it goes for me!

In Topic: How Hard Is It To Be Careful?

Ugh!! So sorry. It's depressing how many people just don't understand or worse, don't care.

I haven't been brave enough to eat out yet, and I dread what it's going to do to damage the family traditions. I was already very limited in what I could get a restaurants, but at least I could usually find SOMEthing, but now with the gluten thing, I can't imagine it really being worth the risk...

Very sorry you've been slammed twice so close together, that's just miserable.:(
