Topics I've Started

Zyrtec And Other Allergy Medicines

04 May 2013 - 05:05 AM

I am having a devil of a time trying to find out if Zyrtec is gluten free.  Does anyone know?  What about other gluten-free allergy medicines? Thanks!

Hashimoto's Syndrome

If you have a goiter in your thyroid that has been caused by hashimoto's syndrome, and you have all or part of your thyroid removed, does that cure the hashimoto's?


Gluten Free For Non-Celiac/not Intolerant?

19 April 2013 - 02:14 PM

I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now due to intolerance.  One of the books I have recently read in researching the topic of celiac and gluten intolerance is  book "Wheat Belly".  This book talks about the reasons why EVERYBODY should be gluten-free regardless of whether or not they have celiac or gluten intolerance.  Based on the info in this book and to support me, my husband has gone gluten-free.  As a result, he has already experienced several improvements with arthiritis in his hand and plantar faciatis.  He also is slowly loosing inches from his waiste.   I also have recently  heard and seen talk about the "Gluten-Free fad diet" and how for people without celiac issues, it is a fraud and an unnecessary lifestyle change.  I am just curious about any opinions you all might have on people without gluten issues following the gluten-free diet and how to encourage others to follow the diet if indeed it is a healthy thing for all people.  Thanks!


Flavored Coffee

06 April 2013 - 07:37 AM

I am wondering if anyone else has had an issue with flavored coffee.  I have been gluten-free for about 6 weeks now and am doing great with it. Last night  I drank some Millstone brand cinnamon hazelnut coffee and this morning I woke up hacking and coughing, runny nose, burping like crazy.  I tried eating breakfast and could tell if I continued to eat I was going to throw up. (my typical reaction to gluten)  My husband mentioned that he read about having to be careful about flavored coffee having gluten in it.  Just wondering if anyone knows about that brand of coffee or have had similar reactions.


Recently Started gluten-free Diet And Having More Symptoms Now Than Before

05 March 2013 - 04:35 PM

I was tested for celiac 5 or so years ago and do not have the disease, but am definitely gluten intolerant.  I now believe I have been for 20 plus years.  At that time, the symptom that sent me to doctors was daily vomiting and losing lots of weight.  When I finally found a doctor that paid any attention to me, they did all sorts of testing, but I don't think much at all was known about celiac and so was never tested for that and the wheat connection was never made.  The doctor finally put me on ludiomil to see what would happen.  The vomiting stopped and so I thought I was good!  When I went through the celiac testing 5 yrs ago it was discovered that I was negative for it (no intestional damage,etc.), so again I thought the medicine was all I needed.  Now I am finding out that my thyroid problems, lack of energy, and other issues I am having is all related to the intolerance.  All that to say that I am now one-week gluten free and off the meds (for another long story).  My problem is that the symptoms of crampy gas pains, low energy and nausea, low grade headaches are worse now than before.  I am wondering if anyone else experienced this right after cutting out the gluten and how long before the good health effects started happening.
