In Topic: Degree Deodorant For Women

14 March 2013 - 11:57 AM

I am still having a hard time reading the labels on some products and I can't find anywhere on the internet if Degree Deodorant for women is gluten free? I am in the process of switching my whole lifestyle to gluten free and I want to go completely gluten free just to be on the extra safe side. Any help would be greatly appreciated. smile.gif

 

Did you ever find out? Because I have always used degree and I want to make sure I am safe. I've used makeup and lotions that have had gluten and my skin has been itchy. I don't want my deodorant to have the same effect, even though I haven't really felt any differences.

I am also very sensitive and found out 2 months after going gluten free that I could not have corn. Corn is in everything. Maltodextrin is corn most of the time. If you are not sure, call the 800 number on the product. Be good at reading labels. It has saved me many times. If you are celiac, then you can be sensitive to other foods. It is good to rotate your foods to give your body a break if you are sensitive to a food or do the IGG blood test and eliminate the foods that you are sensitive to. I have been lucky with Elisa food testing. It is expensive but it is well worth it if you want to feel good again. Good luck.


I've also noticed that corn is a big issue for me as well which only complicated things. I am also allergic to eggs and milk...this list of "what I can't eat" seems to be getting bigger and bigger. I think since corn is so widely used and it replaces wheat as another cheap manufactured grain, or strives systems react. Its quite frustrating!

Udi's makes gluten free pre-made pizza crust. Also, red mill barn brand has a pizza crust flour that's quite good. All of these can be bought online if you don't have any stores that carry them around you. I know its hard, I'm 27 and I go through the same ordeal every time we talk about where to eat. I know right now it may seem silly but every time you eat a slice a pizza or a cookie, you're hurting your body. Its not worth pleasing your friends for days off pain and agony.
Also, I've noticed that most college towns have the best alternative, gluten free restaurants. See what's around you before you guys go out next time. Also, most of my friends are starting to love my gluten free food. My roommate loves the red mill barn gluten free pancakes and she eats them more than me! Don't worry, it gets better with time I promise.
