    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

If you're breaking out using Coppertone it's because of something other than gluten. I just read on another forum that ALL Coppertone products are gluten-free except the Endless Summer Tanning lotion.

I defininately reacted to the Neutrogena Sunblock Lotion, SPF 45. I know that I've reacted to it before but I've blamed it on other things. I didn't relize that the small amount of suncreen that I got into my mouth could cause such a reaction but it did! Has anyone else reacted to this sunscreen?

I don't bother with sunscreen. Every kind I've tried I always break out in hives from. I only recently thought about the possiblity that sunscreens could have gluten in them, but I react to everything. I won't even use makeup with an SPF in it. I've tried everything and believe it or not, I break out from Banana Boat too. I don't think that this has anything to do with gluten containing products. It is probably just another allergy. Anyways...long story short. I burn badly, so I use extra virgin olive oil(for everything including hand lotion in the winter). It works great and can act as a type of sunblock. Of course I do the t-shirt and hat thing too when I'm out, but I'm 22 so who am I kidding I want a tan!! Anyway, another possible product to try is Zinc Oxide, the stuff you see in old movies on the lifeguard's nose. It comes in a creamy form from Destin. I haven't had a chance to test it out, but it does have a really nice feel to it. That's what I use; olive oil, a hat, or Destin creamy. Yay for allergies. ;)

You can get sunblocks that use micromilled zinc oxide or titanium dioxide (and don't use the other funky chemicals) that are fairly effective at blocking both UVA and UVB. Because it's micromilled, however, it won't make you look totally white (just a bit pale). Works great. (I use California Baby's stuff...)

I'm new to this whole sharing info stuff so please bare with me. I don't use sunscreen because I'm on certian medications that require me to stay out of the sun. Even though i don't wear sunscreen if I was going to I would definetly make sure that it was gluten-free. It doesn't matter if you have DH or not the fact still remains if it has gluten in it it will affetct your body. On a side note to say that a person can only have a reaction if they ingest gluten is completly wrong. Some people, like myself, can't tounch it, breath it, or eat it so its best to be carefull. Also a nurse once told me that the more you expose your body to something your allergic to the worse that allergy will become. So while putting on loitions, suncreen, etc, might not bother you now, the more you use them the higher your chances get to not being able to breath gluten.

    Hi Lfortson, I assume you are on the gluten-free diet?  So no wheat, rye or barley?  That's good, but there are about 10% of celiacs who react to oats also.  So you might want to get rid of oats for several months and see if things improve. Another somewhat common food issue is dairy.  Some people can't digest lactose (cow milk sugar), and some can't digest casein (cow milk protein).  So it might help to eliminate all dairy for several months also.  Almond milk is a possible substitute
    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.
