Does anyone know anything about GlutenEase? I went to a celiac support group the other night and there was a lady there promoting it like it was a miracle drug. She said that if you took it and then ate gluten that you would not have any reaction to the gluten or any damage to the intestines. I didn't believe her so I tried to find info online and I didnt find any, so I thought I'd ask if anyone knew anything. Thanks for your help!

There are no miracle drugs. Gluten free is the only way to go. I does upset me that people want to profit on someone's illness.

There is no way on earth they would be able to prove that there is no damage without biopsies, doctors, specialists, hospitals and long-term studies. It sounds like this woman is excited because it helped her symptoms and wants to share, but celiac is much more complex than just symptoms. It's well-known that people with celiac can be completely asymptomatic and they only find out their villi are worn away after a biopsy.

There are several of us who are interested in Glutenease to find out if it helps in the case of cross-contamination. I bought a bottle, but I only use it in certain settings.

My kids are gluten-free too and are preschoolers. There is no way I'd use a pill that they're much too young to take only to have them suffer from a glutening that I'm not suffering from because I took a pill. The last time all three of us were glutened, my poor husband just about crawled under the couch to get away from us. :blink: It's pretty bad. The guilt of them going through it and me not would be worse for me than the glutening.

I am, however, planning on taking it with me the next time I go with my husband on a business conference, which I get a chance to do a couple times a year. I'd love to see if it worked POST-glutening. I get such a wide variety of reactions it would be interesting to see which, if any, might be helped by it.

I'm curious to know if you tried the Glutenease and what you thought. Are you still using it. I know this is an old thread, I've been reading about enzymes and trying to decide which are best for me, and I saw this about Glutenease and am very curious about it. Anyone else that has any information, please share. Thanks.

Linda,

There are some fairly recent threads which I've posted in regarding enzymes such as Glutenease and Peptizyde. I posted a list of different enzymes and what they work best for.

Example...Peptizyde is great for non-celiacs (on or off the diet)...but not recommended for Celiacs as a "safety net" for cross-contamination.

Glutenease....is good for non-celiacs (on or off the diet)....and can also be used by Celiacs to help reduce possible cross contamination reactions.

There was alot of enzymes on the list....I'm sure these threads will come up in a search. I'd post links but I'm on a sluggish computer right now.

I'm always interested in how people are doing with enzymes. :)

Rachel, you're such a sweetie...thank you, I did find your very excellent and extensive list. I copied and pasted it into an enzyme folder, and then looked up Glutenease, and was thinking about trying it, since I do not have Celiac but only gluten sensitivity, not to minimize that with an 'only', because I was so sick while eating it. But it would be nice to know I could go out to eat and not worry about CC and maybe even cheat a little.

I was also reading that with malabsorption there is a problem with pancreatic function, did you read that? I found that very interesting and it makes sense too me, because over the last 8-10 years, I've had a lot of problems with hypoglycemia, which means the pancreas is working overtime, pumping out that insulin. My doctor said prediabetic. Anyway, I was on the Enzymedica site all afternoon reading.

Do you know of anyone whose used it and have they done well with it?

Linda
