Iron Supplement?

Recommended Posts

"I submitted this recipe several years ago. Subsequently, with the aid of an iron supplement, I was able to go back to a normal diet."

This statement was taken from a recipe review off Allrecipes.com, from a gluten free pancake recipe. What is this person talking about? I know celiacs can prevent you from absorbing iron (that was my doc's first clue) but how would an iron supplement mean you could go off a gluten free diet? Possibly this person didn't have celiac's and only was gluten intolerant? I don't understand.

It is obvious that this person either does not have Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerance or has a very ill informed doctor. Celiac Disease is gluten free for life.

Okay good that is what I thought, too. My mother in law read this and told me I needed iron and then I could eat "normally" again. I told her it was lifetime deal, but thought I should check regardless. Thanks. :)
