    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Dear Everyone,

I am wanting to use something around my eyes and mouth to prevent wrinkles. Is there anything out there that is affordable and gluten-free? Olay Regenerist seems good, but I do not know if it is safe to use. I have some wrinkles starting because of squinting. I am near-sighted.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I use philosphy 'Hope in a Jar' and 'When Hope is Not Enough' I also use one of Burt's Bees facial cremes. I have called and checked both for gluten and for soy. You mention squinting because you are nearsighted, have you gotten your eyes checked to see if you need a new prescription? That would be the best preventative. :)

Dear ravenwoodglass,

Thank you for your help! I need something affordable. Actually, I got new glasses in late October.

Before that, I squinted a lot more. Due to my headaches, I cannot always where them. Migraines from these wisdom teeth have really been difficult to deal with. Hopefully, I will get some contacts later this year.

Also, they said to prevent aging to begin using such products in your 20s. ;)

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

P.S. Do you know if Clearasil products are safe for oily, acne prone skin?

Be careful with Philosophy. The When Hope is Not Enough contains soy protein and possibly gluten.

I went over the ingredients lists myself, ordered several of their products--spending a lot of money in the process. After using them for a while, I wasn't feeling well, and since the only new thing I was using were the Philosophy products I emailed them and they sent me a list of their products that contained gluten.

This was last spring, and we've moved and switched internet providers since then, so I no longer have the list or I'd copy and paste it here. Turns out, I was using a couple products that contained gluten--and had no idea from reading the labels! Of course, when I discontinued them, I began to feel better. I was literally slathering the Pigment of Your Imagination all over my face daily--nothing on the label would indicate gluten and yet it was on the gluten containing list. I was not happy.

Jin--I'm currently using moisturizing facial cream from Andrea Rose--her products are gluten and salicylate free.

For drugstore brands, I like Dove--they have a facial lotion that I have not tried yet but plan to, but I do like their Energy Glo Face Wash--it exfoliates gently and leaves my face very soft.

I use Peptides and More by Reviva. I buy it online.

I don't see any gluten or soy ingredients (Patty, it does have coconut though). It's all natural stuff, nothing bad.

Patti, Thanks for the heads up. Sometimes I wish I was a chemist.

Dear Patti,

Thank you so much for your help! :) That list will make it much easier to find the right one. Sometimes these beauty products are confusing. Labeling is not always clear. I have heard conflicting things about Neutragena, so I am not sure if I can use their products or not.

I remember when you got so ill last year. Cosmetics are easy to forget about, or to overlook. Ingredient lists are incredibly complicated at times. Take Vitamin E, which can be listed as tocopherols. When I first saw that, I had no idea what that meant!

Dear Ravenwoodglass,

It does seem you need a degree in chemistry to understand these labels. You can run across the same ingredient that has fifty different names! No one is going to know for sure what all of those things are.

Hair products can be frustrating, too. I have a Paul Mitchell safe list, but am concerned about tea tree oil. I do not know if it strips color or not.

Sincerely,

Jin

Peptides would be something You would want to look into. Excel Skin Care has great products in Pure B-5 and Renewal Complex.

For the lower buy go through their Amazon store with free shipping included.

    I recently started a medication that's known to cause hypothyroidism, and in me, it has. As I increased the dose, my TSH went higher, in an almost lockstep fashion. On the most recent set of blood tests, after my TSH had gone over the threshold, my GP decided to chuck a coeliac test in there since hypothyroidism can be linked to coeliac disease, even though it seems pretty much certain the hypothyroidism is caused by the medication. So essentially this test result was something neither he n
    TDZ, that is interesting that you mention weed-eating as coinciding with the start of your husband's rash, as about 12 years ago I had a possibly similar experience.  It was in the spring (meaning late May here in SC Alaska), and I was cutting the lawn.  Rather than bagging up all the lawn clippings, I would just take the filled bag off the mower, walk into the woods behind the house, and pull out the clippings with my hand and then scatter them around (so that they didn't just all rot and feste
Not a clue, other than normal eating. He ate a fair amount of bread, and pasta and pizza and such. Right before the massive outbreak in November, there was a peppermint/chocolate-drizzled popcorn that I got at Walmart, and it gave both of us horrible diarrhea, and within a few days he was covered with more rash than ever before. Might have been unrelated, but it's the only unusual thing that times out right for any causality. Otherwise, he wasn't eating anything different. The first thing t
