#689659 Small Amount Of Gluten Consumed

Posted by iamsarar on 04 April 2011 - 03:50 PM

For me it can take sometimes a day or 2 to feel the effects. Tired, headache, can't move my body, nauseous. I might feel this way for about 4 days and then I start to feel better. I would not have kept eating the food once I found it had gluten in it because if the meatballs had gluten then I feel most likely the rest does too. Hopefully this will not be the case for you but if you are not feeling very good tomorrow eating this food might be way.

#686465 What Do You Miss?

Posted by iamsarar on 24 March 2011 - 07:23 PM

I miss being able to go out with my husband and run to the new doughnut shop in town or picking up a pizza on the way home, stopping at the bagel shop. I didn't realize how much of our outings revolved around food until I couldn't do it any more. The fun part though is finding new things to do and places to explore like going to the city and trying a new restaurant we found with a gluten free menu or taking that hour long drive through the trees and along the water and ending up at the Gluten free bakery and having picnic by the water with new goodies to try........ actually as I read this I think I like the new life better :)

#685914 Diagnosed At 51

Posted by iamsarar on 22 March 2011 - 07:11 PM

I am 51 and was just diagnosed a little over a month ago.....has far as not feel 100% I found I didn't get there until I removed gluten for my personal products too, Makeup, lipstick, lotion, shampoo. Anything that was around my mouth or on my hands. After doing this I felt so much better. Have you checked you products also?

#685869 Mouthwash Has Gluten In It

Posted by iamsarar on 22 March 2011 - 04:45 PM

LOL....We have all been there! Sometimes your information is only as good as your customer service rep (and their ability to read a script).

What the third rep is telling you is that there are no gluten ingredients, but cannot verify a potential cross contact issues with their suppliers. Yeah... a CYA statement...in my opinion.

But, try another brand if you think you are having issues with this one.


Thanks Lisa! Your response made me push the issue and ask the right questions when I called. I think I do have a problem with this one bottle at least. I am just going to use water for now and see how it goes.

#685845 Mouthwash Has Gluten In It

Posted by iamsarar on 22 March 2011 - 03:36 PM

OK....I called back a third time :blink: this time THIS third person said that the mouthwash IS gluten free, BUT it is manufactured in a plant that makes many other products that are NOT gluten free and it is advised that if you are on a gluten free diet you should NOT use this product. Why didn't they just say that the first time :huh:

Thanks for all your input!

#685832 Mouthwash Has Gluten In It

Posted by iamsarar on 22 March 2011 - 02:54 PM

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Equate-Mouthwash-Gargle-1.5-l/10533846


WATER, ALCOHOL (15 WT%), GLYCERIN &/OR SORBITAL, FLAVOR, POLYSORBATE 80, SODIUM SACCHARIN, SODIUM BENZOATE, CETYLPYRIDINIUM CHLORIDE, BENZOIC ACID, BLUE 1, YELLOW 5


Don't see any culprits here regarding gluten, but it is obviously something in the ingredients is bothering you.

Try another mouth wash to see if it gets better. All Crest mouth rinses, toothpastes and white strips are gluten free.


The label looks different then this on the link. My label says Mouthwash clean and fresh. I called the customer 1-800 number and the person I talked to said that "yes this does contain gluten" After reading your post I decided to try again and see if I get the same answer. I got a different person, after giving them the numbers on the back of the bottle she said the same thing. " yes this mouthwash contains gluten" I don't which ingredient it is that has gluten in it but it would explain why I have feeling awful every morning, because I have been trying to figure it out to 2 weeks. I going to stop using it and see. I'll let you know.

#685818 Mouthwash Has Gluten In It

Posted by iamsarar on 22 March 2011 - 02:04 PM

Hi....I have a mouth piece I wear at night to prevent teeth grinding. I soak it in 1/2 water 1/2 mouthwash during the day. I have been constantly nauseous for a couple of weeks now and called the company to see if what I thought was gluten free mouthwash really wasn't. I just found out is wasn't!! So glad to know the cause. But now because this expensive mouth piece has been soaking in this stuff what do I do now. I thought about boiling it. and now I need to find a new mouthwash. Any suggestions on the mouth piece or what to use now?

The mouthwash I was using it Walmart Equate fresh mint.

#685158 Thinking Of Going Vegetarian

Posted by iamsarar on 20 March 2011 - 08:40 AM

I am a newly diagnosed Vegetarian and i Had thought about adding meat to my diet again. I had bought some to add to a sauce I was cooking. When I took it out of the pack I started to gag but I continued to cook it. When we sat down for dinner no one liked the taste or texture. I haven't cooked any again and don't feel I need to. I like the way I feel when I didn't have meat in my meal. Tell your dad you are on a path to healthy eating and not eating meat right now will help get you there. For me, when I ate meat it just sat in my tummy like a rock. Maybe when he is cooking he can put some aside before adding the meat. Like if he is making a sauce, put a little in another pan before adding the meat. Before I became a vegetarian my daughter was a non-meat eater and this is what I would do for her. If I made tacos I would make hers with rice and bean. Now though, we all eat the same. When I had talked to the doctor about eating meat again she said "why? you are so healthy with out it look at all you blood work" That was good enough for me!

Maybe help your dad do some of the cooking and show him some ideas. For me and my family I think vegetarian eating is the healthiest and the best. It isn't for everyone though. You might need to do some of your own cooking but if you are thinking about trying it I think you for go for it!

#684945 My Birthday...

Posted by iamsarar on 19 March 2011 - 11:28 AM

My First gluten free birthday is next Saturday. At first I didn't want to do anything either, but then I decided I wanted to celebrate me! I am so glad I know what is wrong and I am working on fixing it! We are going to go to P.F. Changs for dinner because they have a gluten free menu and then some shopping! Stand up and celebrate you. Find something you enjoy. Buy a Betty Crocker Gluten free cake mix and a can of frosting and enjoy! Happy Birthday!!!!!!!:)
