In Topic: Is Wine gluten-free?

Ironically, I didn't have time to track down additional links because I was headed out the door to the dentist.

But having a "moderator" treat me with so little respect, I have little interest in continuing. 

Goodbye celiac forum.

The fluoride content is extremely relevant considering that this is a conversation about why a person might experience a reaction to wine.

Here is a link to an entire article that goes into all of the details about the fluoride levels of grapes being beyond those allowed with links to the scientific studies.


Here is a link that explains what fluoride toxicity is - from the National Institutes of health.


And I personally see this as being considerably relevant to those who have celiac considering the effect that malabsorption has on bones.

On another note, the anti-fluoride folks point out that most grapes are treated with pesticides that are high in fluoride which will persist through the wine-making process.

I've had fluoride poisoning and can't tolerate it at all now. There is just way too much of this toxic, carcinogenic substance in everything these days.

Organic wines could reduce those risks.

Just an idea, but my health insurance plan does cover appointments with emergency medical practices. The ones in my area are pretty much the same as going to any other regular doctor's appointment, but they have broader hours and will even see you without an appointment. Perhaps they could cover some of your needs for having tests run? I know it would be odd to ask a second doctor to help out when you can't get to your primary, but could that type of thing be a stop-gap measure until you hit your one-year anniversary at this job?

In Topic: Why Do I Have Symptoms From Activity?

I'd definitely go get my hormone levels checked and get tested for vitamin deficiencies. They are both common in those with celiac and are easy to test for with just a blood draw.

Get the actual numbers of the test results so you can do some of your research into the "normal" ranges. Though your doctor may say everything is okay, just being too far in one direction or the other can still cause symptoms even if the health insurance agencies don't want to pay for treatments. (No, I'm not jaded. lol)

If those are all fine, I'm not sure what I'd try next, but you are in good company here. Fatigue seems to be the most common complaint of those who have been gluten free for a while but still have lingering symptoms.
