Contact Lens Solution

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My daughter's doctor and nutritionist said to be careful with make-up/products that go near the mouth and the eyes. I just tried to read the contacts lens solution bottle and it lists "proprietary formulas." How the heck can I tell if there is gluten in it if they don't list the ingredients? Does anyone know of any safe contact lens solution? Thx

There is no gluten in contact lens solution. Use the brand her optometrist recommends.

Thank you very much, we just got her diagnosis last Tuesday and we are all feeling overwhelmed. She was not only diagnosed with celiac but with IBD as well so there is alot going on. They have stressed the need to be gluten free so they can sort out the IBD. To top it off I told her I would go gluten free as well.

You going gluten-free is a wonderful show of support! I'm sure she is grateful. Her IBD may improve once you get her off gluten. Sometimes IBD is actually driven by celiac inflammation.

I know the diet can seem a little overwhelming at first. I'd recommend you get a big bag of rice, a bag of potatoes, a bunch of fresh fruit and veggies, a carton of eggs, and some plain, ordinary meat to cook. Grab onions, garlic, and plain herbs to season things. Bake a chicken or fire up the grill. Shop the outside of the grocery store where all the plain old food is and you don't even have to worry about labels. Processed foods aren't good for you anyway! There are TONS of gluten-free ideas and recipes in the "what's for breakfast" and "what are you cooking tonight" threads here.

I'd strongly suggest you start your daughter off dairy-free as well. We tend to be lactose intolerant from the villous damage and all dairy can be hard on unhealed celiacs. That can make breakfast tricky, but gluten-free toast and eggs works pretty well at first. If your daughter improves a lot, that's the time to reintroduce dairy.

Oh, and if you can afford it a rice cooker is a wonderful thing to have. Also it's time to replace gluteny cutting boards, wooden spoons, any pots or pans with baked on gluten, and those scratched up teflon pans you've been meaning to get rid of. Discard condiments that could have breadcrumbs and get fresh. If anyone is eating gluten in the household you'll want two sets with the gluten-free ones marked.
