Dietician List Of Foods To Stay Away From

Recommended Posts

I am newly diagnosed Celiac with a biopsy, so I am just now learning everything as to what I can and cannot eat. I met with my dietician the other day and he gave me a lot of handouts to read! A couple things that were on there, wondering if anyone knows the answer are.....is Metamucil okay to take (or store brand)? I have seen controversary on this, some say yes, some say no. Also, does anyone know what packaged suet is? We grind our own wild game and get suet from the store, but it is just trimmed from meat they are wrapping each day. I am looking forward to this site and help along the way.

I find that it is easier to know the ingredients that you can't have.

I'm not 100% sure about the suet, but some bird seed does have wheat, but you can find stuff without it. I'm not familiar with brands, though. I'm not sure if you get the kind with seed in it.

I see Metamucil is listed as a safe medication, but I got information from a website celiacsyndrome.com that it was on an unsafe list. I'm still confused.

Welcome to the board. When in doubt do without until you are asymptomatic at least. There is a factor about sensitivity levels and they can vary from person to person. There are other things that might be able to help that are for sure gluten-free. Flax seeds come to mind, they can be ground and added to smoothies or baked in stuff or even just sprinkled on cereal. If you want the Metamucil because of irregularity the diet itself may do away with the need. Get plenty of water and fruits and veggies, usually cooked are better tolerated at first. Things may be up and down for a bit at first, that is normal as there is a need for a lifestyle change for most of us. The gluten free world can be confusing at first but once you are feeling better the changes are so worth it.

I am doubtful about the accuracy of gluten free drug lists. At least one of them (referenced in a post above), http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/, still has Xanax listed as gluten free - which is wrong.
