Gatorade and colonoscopy prep

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My daughter is a highly sensitive celiac. She needs a colonoscopy and was told to mix the miralax with Gatorade that is not blue, purple or red. Gatorade currently states that Gatorade contains no gluten content but may be cross contaminated. As she will be drinking 64 ounces of it in a short period of time, I am questioning whether or not this is safe for her to do. Thanks for any information you can provide!

Gaterade is actually on  the Fasano gluten free diet used for those patients with suspected non-responsive celiac disease.  So, celiac experts think it is safe!

Gatorade is safe. The statement from the supplier really means, "we don't test and can not take legal responsibility if an ingredient is contaminated." Standard CYA stuff.

Thank you!

As a celiac, I use blue Powerade (owned by Coca Cola) for my preps  with no issues. Best of luck to you. 

The Powerade brand is most likely fine (I have not read the label lately), but they do not want red, blue or purple in your gut at the time of scoping.  It must stain and look like blood or inflammation.   Ever see a kid eating a blue popsicle?  ?

Red was the only color my doc didn't want me to use. Yes, it stains!

    To the OP, once in a while this stuff happens.  Please feel free to start a new topic if that would make it easier.  I am afraid this is just part of forums on the internet. I hope this didn’t chase you off.  
    @anasss Nobody in this thread has called anyone "ignorant," so please don't say that if it did not happen. Also, the use of all capitals is, in forums and other places on the Internet, generally considered yelling and impolite, and there ...
    Bshake, Look up the "baking soda test" ...it is a nice home test to see if your daughter could have low stomach that is triggering the ulcers or creating the perfect conditions for ulcers to develop....mastic gum as has been mentioned...
