I felt great the first 10 days I was on my gluten-free diet but then starting feeling badly again. I'm starting to think it's not a gluten-intolerance but figured I'd ask this question. I don't understand what caused it the only thing I can think of is cold cuts that I eat about once a week. I know that these sometimes have gluten in them but does anyone know the true likelihood? Thanks!

What brand of cold cuts are you eating. Are they deli sliced? Deli slicked meats are a risk for cross contamination.

Why don't you try some safe cold cuts, such as Hillshire Farms. They have a wide variety and I believe all are gluten free.

All Boar Head meats and cheeses are also gluten free.

In addition to the great advice of others what are you putting on the cold cuts? Are you eating cheese or using condiments? Many of us have trouble with dairy at least at first and if you are still healing things like mustard and such can be a bit hard on the tummy. Also make sure you are using gluten-free toiletries and such, as we cut the massive gluten intake out of our diet many forget to cut it out of things like shampoos and such. I hope you get some relief soon.

Oscar Mayer (a Kraft foods global company) should list any gluten if used. As a write I am eating Oscar Mayer smoked turkey breast lunch meat and it has no gluten ingredients.

I must admit I have overlooked soap, shampoo, hand lotion, and facial cream. Is there a good comprehensive list anywhere of "safe" products to use?

Your best bet is to go into the products section of the board. It is a common question. There are many that are safe but a great deal of products aren't. The main things to watch out for are wheat germ oil, Vitamin E which can be derived from wheat germ oil, the vehicles for scents and oats. Some companies will only use the latin terms though and rather than learn them all I just call the company with any new product.

Garneir Nurtitioneste has a new skin line that has a lot of gluten-free stuff. Dove is a company that will list wheat and oats clearly as will Suave. Unilever products will list clearly also from what I understand. There are of course others.

Oh and a couple things that took me a long time to have a 'duh' moment with, don't share your can opener with gluten eaters or pet foods and watch out for hidden gluten in things like drywall, mud and remodeling and craft supplies.

It can seem overwhelming at first but it does get easier.
