Barium Swallow And Gluten Free Product

Recommended Posts

Had a barium swallow today. The tech was wonderful. She just grabbed the phone to call the company when I asked if the product they used was gluten free. This hospital used "E Z Em" products. She made a list of three items that are NOT gluten free and posted it for the other techs.

NOT gluten free products:

Readi Cat 2 Vanilla Smoothie is not gluten free because of the flavoring (other flavors are gluten free)

Maxi Bar

Liquid Polibar Plus (the regular Liquid Polibar is gluten free, just the Plus is not)

Here is a sample of what their product looks like:


1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms

Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance


2001-had stroke because of medications I was given

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)

May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world
