This is not bother, but this site is FULL of information at only the tap of you fingers. The site index on this page has countless information.

We have all been where you are, and as I have said, the key is learning to read ingredients on products. They do change and what what was known to be gluten free a year ago, may not be currently.

You have to rely on 1-800 numbers and be current with those. I have recommend certain products but slacking off that. I don't remember safe products...I read labels now and if doubt, I call. There are some safe companies that I will recommend.

Everyone needs to be their own safe keeper of heath. Only your can protect you good health.

You could be reacting to sulphites which are found in red wine among other things.

Hi all: This is a good question - and you're not bothering anyone when you ask about it. I know it is hard to get to all the reading when you are too busy - so that's what us friends are here for. To interchange information on these topics. But after you talk to someone on board about it, look it up or call the manufacturer - I know that might not be possible with wines as the bottle only shows the address of the distributor.

Merlot is safe for celiacs unless you are drinking something that is not pure wine. When out, have bartender show you the bottle.

Sulfites are in wine and it can cause diarrhea if you are sensitive to it. Sulfites (preservatives) are added to wine and occur naturally in wine. Some wineries do not use added sulfites but you have to find out from wine store which ones they are. If you are sensitive to sulfites, the more wine you drink, the more diarrhea you'll have.

Also, wine has a little mold in it due to natural fermentation and you could be sensitive to both mold and sulfites.

I hope this helps. Bring on the questions! :)


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Hi,

wine can be a problem for me too and I have reactions similar to those you describe. I learned from a more experienced, equally hyper-sensitive friend that you can try drinking unfiltered red wines. Since I started drinking the unfiltered reds, I haven't had a problem. I've started compiling a list of brands that are ok with me here: Lame Advertisement.com. Just click on the 'wine' link. The list isn't long yet, but it's growing.

If you look for unfiltered red wines in your local liquor store, you may or may not have any luck in getting help from the management. The one good thing to know is that if they are unfiltered, they typically say "unfiltered" on the label on the back of the bottle. My favorites so far have been from Argentina. Good luck!

People sometimes react to the fining agents used in wine, which can include common allergens like casein, egg, or fish (yes, you read that right). This is why some people do better with vegan wines. Unfiltered wines would accomplish the same thing.

Also, I've read that sometimes a wheat-based glue is used on wine casks. I don't know if there have been any known reactions from this, though. My understanding is that there is no test available now for knowing how much, if any, gluten is in the final product. (At least, this is what the wine sellers are saying.)

There is currently a proposal to require allergen labeling on wines. It is being disputed by vintners, of course.

Can you drink other alcohols and not feel bad? I'm intolerant to all alcohol <_< , all of it makes me feel like you do today.

Sometimes I can drink a glass or two of something and feel okay, sometimes I feel very, very sick. It's completely unrelated to gluten intolerance though.

Do you feel this way when you're glutened? If so, maybe gluten is the culprit.
