These are gluten free.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks. But don't I have to look at the active ingredients too?


In Topic: Is This Gluten Free? Can't Find Any Info!

Thanks everyone. I am just being extremely cautious right now. Twice I have had a doctor tell me something was gluten-free or allergen free, only to get Super sick as soon as I took the meds! I'm going to call Teva next week and see whats up.


In Topic: Has Anyone Tried Aloe Vera Juice

Yes it should help soothe and heal the inner lining of your gut because those are practically the same type of cells that skin is made of. Aloe vera is good for healing internally and externally. I drank a lot of aloe vera juice when first dx'd. If you don't like the taste you can always hide it in a fruit smoothie or something.


In Topic: Dealing With Being Asymptomatic

14 May 2013 - 06:37 PM

I am a 19 year old celiac and have had it for five years. Prior to being diagnosed, I was asymptomatic. While a lot of people may consider me lucky for never having to deal with the crappy feeling of being "glutened," it does have its downsides. For example, I am never sure whether something I ate had gluten and sometimes, I feel I exhibit some symptoms of being "glutened" but am never sure.

 

Well, today I have been feeling terrible. I have seriously gone to the bathroom around ten times today not feeling well and am itchy and sweating a bit more and I feel hot. Of course, I am wondering if maybe I did somehow eat gluten and that is the cause or if it's just regular food poisoning or just a bad bout of something. And that's my issue......I never truly got a feel for how it feels to be contaminated so when I have stomach pains or something along those lines, I never am sure whether it could be gluten or something else.

 

So I guess I am asking......can someone give a summary of how they feel when they eat gluten? How do you differentiate this from something else?

 

PS: I know the symptoms are all over the web and I have looked many times at them and it just gets so confusing. I just thought personal help would be better for me to understand the actual symptoms of the disease, as I never truly "experienced" them knowingly ever.

I am also an asymptomatic Celiac. But while I was eating gluten before my dx I felt horrible all the time. I was afraid to go to the doctor because I thought I might have intestinal cancer. After a few months gluten free I realized I hardly had a reaction anymore. But I know I have celiac, I had every classic symptom plus complications that could not have been anything else, so I avoid it at all costs. Its hard to tell when I've eaten gluten, sometimes my feet and hands ache but even that might only last a couple minutes. Several times I have had random symptoms like itchy skin. By contrast, my other allergies involve hours of intense stomach cramps, nausea, or vomiting.


In Topic: Battling No Food

I'm kind of puzzled that you are still going thru this after so many years. That being said, I have totally been in your position. I was starving, my friends had nothing to offer but pizza, and I didn't have money to go to a store nor did I have a ride home. I had packed food but had finished it hours ago. Now, I learned to pack extra food than I need, any time I step outside the house. Even if I'm only driving a short distance away, I think "well, my car could break down and the tow truck guy could take forever!" Plan for the worst, hope for the best. Some of my friends felt bad the last time I had nothing to eat. They said they will take me to the grocery store so I can buy stuff to leave in their cupboard. I noticed you said you don't eat a lot, bad Idea, just eat right before you leave for the day.
