You can wait to see a nutritionist.  But this article lists many choices.  I would definitely get one labeled gluten-free or better yet, certified gluten-free from any of the gluten-free organizations.   The author is Jane Anderson who has DH and as a result is very conservative.  I trust her.

According to a bottle I saw on Amazon, the label says gluten free on the front.  What does your bottle say?  I ask because labels can change.  
 

I also looked at the ingredients list. They use corn starch which is gluten free to bind the pill.   But again, you always need to check the label.

Some celiacs need a multi-vitamin, especially in the beginning when absorbing nutrients from foods is difficult due to intestinal damage.  So taking a multi-vitamin is typically recommended.  Others take additional vitamins based on their doctor’s input.    Talk to your doctor about vitamins.  Others take vitamins because their diet is terrible.  Only you and your doctor/nutritionist knows what is best for you.
 

If you are taking them, make sure they are gluten free.  That is the most important thing to consider when you have celiac disease.

Another site you can check is Labdoor.  They rank vitamins according to independent tests they do.

https://labdoor.com/rankings/multivitamins

They are not listing gluten-free vitamins, but rank them based on quality.  So you'd want to get your list of gluten-free vitamins and compare it to the list of quality vitamins and try to find matches.

 


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

so the doc office just called me... he wants me to start taking a multi vitamin with Iron in it...

but my Iron seemed normal I think...

Isn't it unsafe to have excess Iron?

I had her schedule a call from him

That little bit of iron In a multi-vitamin is not unsafe.  Listen to your doctor.  I am sure they will periodically monitor you.

I have done really well with Procaps Labs ( https://www.procapslabs.com/ ).  I discovered them eons ago before I knew I had Celiac's and before they were selling their stuff on HSN.  They have monthly specials on their website, which is where I buy.  Most everything is labeled gluten free, but they do have a few products with wheat grass, which I stay away from.  I also tried their oats, which caused symptoms, I can now tolerate purity protocol oats, but not their oats.  Their products are labeled:  CONTAINS NO Milk, soy, yeast, corn, wheat, gluten, sodium, salt, sugar, fat, cholesterol, color, preservative, common allergens or manufacturing additives.

One thing I have learned in the last years after Celiac's diagnosis, is that not all vitamins are the same.  The form of the vitamin really makes a difference in what you absorb.  Anything like Centrum, those hard pills, or anything you find in the grocery store or drug store, and GNC are made with the cheapest ingredients available or the lowest possible of the higher priced ingredients, and lots of fillers.  Every time I learn something about this form of this vitamin or that one, I look up what I have been taking, and it's the better form that is more absorbable, and the quantity of it is not cut down.

Yes, that's exactly the one I take, with the extra vitamin D3.  If you click on the "read label" just below the description, you get an enlargement of the actual label on the bottle.  It says "contains no milk, soy, yeast, wheat, gluten......"  They have a big annual special on it in around March, and I buy a year's supply then, but looks like it's on a special price now.   I find it easy on the stomach, hard pills make me burp and gag and give me stomach upset.

Hey, DJF, you might want to wait to see what your nutritionist says.  He may run a few blood tests to check for deficiencies.
