Accelerating Accidental Glutening

Recommended Posts

I was in Fred Meyer the other day looking for some probiotics, when I came across a product that said it helps aid the digestion of gluten. The main ingredient was glutanese powder. We are very diligent about our two year old not getting gluten, but he does go to daycare three days a week and accidents happen! My doctor just has so little experience with Celiac's that I have to go to a specialist far away...sometimes I think this website is a faster better source for me! I am just wondering if it could really help, and if anyone has any experience with it?

Thanks!!

i would call your specialist first but it doesnt sound good to me. My daughter is also two and when she gets sick its only brief so I would just deal with it i guess. I know it sucks but i dont think anything is really proven yet so I would just say ask your specialist. Thats just my opinion. lol Hope it was a little helpful:)

I take DPP-IV (DPP-4) enzyme sometimes. It is supposed to help digest gluten. There are some people who don't think it helps though. Glutenease contains DPP-4. You can get DPP-IV from other sources though, and usually less expensive. My experience is it reduces the length of time my symptoms last, but it does not totally eliminate them. Like I said, you hear varying opinions about DPP-IV here. Personally, i think it would be worth trying for cc issues. It won't allow a person to eat large amounts of gluten without problems. I figure a little help is better than no help though.

I don't have a personal experience with this product. However, while I was away at school, the woman next to me at lunch ended up having celiac's disease too. However, she was eating items I suspected had gluten, so I steered away. She takes "country life gluten-zyme" and says it prevents any CC issues, and allows her to eat small amounts of gluten. I'm NOT attempting the gluten, but anything that might help prevent cc issues that you can't control is interesting to me. Again, NO PERSONAL EXPERIENCE here. Just a suggestion, because that is tough when they are so little and in an environment that is very hard to regulate.
