Posting Cps (canadian Pharmaceutical Services) Lists Of Gluten-free Manufacturers In Cps

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks!

First I'd just like to say whilst am here and have the chance to...

For the record I am both better and the same as far as all my "digestive issues" ... my "blood tests came back as negative at ( 2 < 20 Iga) :( (And I only withdrew gluten Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon and then pigged out on wheat ALL day Sunday & Monday morn before they took the blood!) Now I have finally got an appt to see a GI (Celiac familiar too! :D on April 7th, meanwhile I am even "eating foods" (as in plural or variety), have halted "losing" weight but staying at 119, and now have been gluten free about a week I think, (had some errors with my "antacid meds" which led me to this post today actually). My D continues BUT it is no longer so, hmmm how to say it, pressurized I am happy to say, though unfortunately my "malabsorbtion issue" is all to obviously apparent by the fact that, hmmmm again let's see, well ya know how "corn goes in and out pretty much the same" in my case EVERYTHING does just that, even Iceberg Lettuce looks da same in and out <_< Anyhoo... now I'm babbling about me... on to the point of the post!

While I am not at all sure just how many fellow "Canadians" there are as members or even readers of the forums, BUT heck I know I am, so I figured that this particular "gluten-free List" would and could be a benefit to others to have and so I decided to share it in a post here today... For me one of the more difficult aspects of "going gluten-free" has proven to be NOT my "food" so much but more frequently with "OTC & Prescription Medications", which I take many of, for both other ailments and my newer too significant "digestive symptoms". From my Synthroid med to painkiller to "antacid & Immodioum" discovering whether they were safe "Gluten wise" took me journey after journey to the pharmacy counter to ask "please check this for me" and unfortunately, quite a few "trial & errors" too, before one of the Pharmacists so kindly "ripped out the list page from the BIG blue CPS book and gave me a "photocopy" of it... (an earthly angel she is ;) I hope it may save others some of my own errors and make their Celiac journey a tad easier perhaps. The list below is copyright by the publisher and is transcribed verbatim as it appears upon the photocopied page, it is shared here without gain and it should NOT be used in any way to "obtain profit". Please note; I will also be posting another small list table of a very few "Gluten containing" Pharmacuticals within CPS, along with the 'information text" on the particulars of Celiac Disease intended to educate and inform Pharmacists consulting the CPS. And I'll do that for ya, just as soon as I get my next "bathroom break" (away from it that is eh :lol:

CPS GLUTEN-FREE PHARMACEUTICAL MANUFACTURERS
