Having had a horrid time with a sore tongue recently, I can pass on a bit of advice from one consultant. It is good to ensure that one's ferritin is up to at least 40 to deal with sore areas in the mouth. Might be worth getting a blood test. Also, B12 is another one to watch.
I would trust the label over what some customer rep said on the phone but consider calling back and talk to a supervisor. I looked up the product and confirmed there was no gluten. I can not imagine gluten being added. The rep might think “stuffed” is the same as “stuffing” as in turkey. 😆
Seriously, there was a time when blue cheese was questionable as being safe for celiacs. The mold might be been grown on a wheat or rye medium. Learn more from Trisha, a gluten free dietitian and owner of the Gluten-free Watchdog.
I do not know about you, but when I doubt a product, I usually do not purchase it as their are some many other good things to eat. I don’t always have the time to do the research and sometimes piece of mind is priceless.
You had a positive on the blood panel. That usually means the next step is an endoscopy, which you had done. So, now you need to wait for the results. I can tell you that my doctor told me that everything looked good, but the biopsies revealed vill damage. I also only had one positive on the panel (DGP IgA). That was five years ago, some doctors have scopes that can now often visually see the damage.
Hang in there!
Hi Teresa and welcome
Do you think you've been glutened? I get mouth ulcers sometimes when that's happened.
Acyclovir/Zovirax was the only medicine that seemed to help with them. Oh and taking vitamins although that may be as much psychological.
Do you eat dairy? Only asking as I have found it bad for my skin etc and have recently removed it completely from diet and feel a lot better. So I probably have some confirmation bias!
