Can anyone suggest a good, readily available and reasonably cheap guaranteed to be gluten free multivitamin?

TIA

I take centrum and they say on their website that it's gluten free

2. Is Centrum gluten-free and is it safe for people with celiac disease to take?

Yes, Centrum is gluten-free and suitable for individuals with celiac disease.

Thanks, I had heard that before about the brand. I'm currently using a generic of Centrum, but of course the no-gluten aspect may not have made it through the generic equivalent process.

Thanks for the replies. I went to Target & looked at their house brand, none of the multivitamins I saw (Up & Up, etc) were clearly marked "Gluten Free". So I stopped at a Rite Aid on the way home & picked up a couple bottles of "Nature Made Multi", which is labeled "No yeast or Gluten". Plus, they were buy one, get one free, which is always nice :D

I know that Costco in Canada has a pre-natal vitamin that is gluten free, and it is under $5. I take it even though I'm not pregnant!

Hi, Molly -

You might want to double check on the Centrum vitamins. I started taking them when I was first diagnosed 2 years ago because their website said gluten-free. Unfortunately it was the Canadian site. When I called them they said only the ones sold in Canada are guaranteed gluten-free. They might have changed that since then, but just wanted to give you a heads up.

The UP&UP men's one a day says gluten free right after the ingredients list.

I checked into this. The Canadian (.ca) sit reports that Centrum is gluten free but the .com sit does not certify that information.

All of this info is helpfull..... my gi dr. told me to find a good mutli vitamin with mainly five ingredients are the most important ones which are vitamin D, iron, selenium, copper and magnesium... she also said that prenatal may be better than reg even if you're not pregnant bc they have higher levels. i know i can not take womens one a day as they make me feel terrible and this both times i tried to take them before i had my gi biopsy and before i knew what was wrong with me. so now im kind of afraid to take them in fear of feeling crummy. anyone have an opinion on what makes them feel the best and if i should go with the prenatal rather than a regular kind? i just want to not feel weak and afraid to excercise again. i also may need to say i have type one diabetes and anemic so any help for a newly diagnosed would be awesome im still learning ..... thanks :)

Thank you for your reply. I have just edited my post to add nausea! Another big symptom.  Did your doctor send you straight for endoscopy with negative blood results? Or do those other blood tests first?
