  1. R. Jared sent this e-amil to me which I think has important info for us: "Earlier this month I responded about Nature's Plus CAL/MAG. My health food store owner told me it is Gluten-Free. But, it's not!!! It took me a while to figure out that my reaction was from the CAL/MAG. Verified 1-9-2004 from the Nature's Plus company that it is NOT GLUTEN FREE. Pharmaceutical glaze contains gluten. I hope you haven't tried it. If so, please throw it away or give to someone who can use it. " Does anyone know if capsules are gluten free?
  2. Are people using supplements of any kind in addition to the diet? What supplements have you found helpful? I am using quite a few: mulitvitamin, B complex, selenium, iron, vitamin E, fish oil, CoQ10 but do not know whether I need them with the diet. I have been gluten free about 6 months and it has improved things tremendously, much more energy, more normal bowel movements. Prior to the diet I think the supplements saved me from much more severe symptoms. I was 55 before figuring out that I might have inherited my mother's "non-tropical sprue". Have not had a positive confirmation with intestinal biopsy. The IgA test was negative
