Otc Temporary Digestive Aids For Celiacs

Recommended Posts

I was just at the International Celiac Disease Symposium and can tell you that they would answer this question "NO!"  The doctors that are working on  a pill that can break down gluten very quickly, before it leaves the stomach, tested the OTC and mail order products and found that they do not work at all or only work a very slight bit.  They also say that their pill is not meant for cheating.  It is meant for when you must eat away from home during travel, order gluten free, but it isn't as gluten-free as you thought.

 

These doctors and some of the other presenters were firm that a Celiac should not cheat on their diet.

Anyone tried any of the OTC aids for temporary relief when you just have to have a non-celiac safe food?  We follow a strict celiac safe diet but occasionally my spouse wants the "real thing".

Thank you for your response. It is definitely important information to have.
