  1. Hypersensitivity

    I also have problems with supplements and medications. The problem for me is not gluten - they are gluten free- but the filler that they use - derivatives of cellulose. The reaction I get is hard to tell from a gluten reaction. The gelatin caps are ok, but the vegetarian ones are made from cellulose derivative. But at least you can empty the contents out. I get supplements in powder form to avoid cellulose and cc, and a compounding pharmacy can make a lot of drugs for you. Sarah Binks
  2. Panic Attacks & Gluten

    Yes, I get panic attacks when I'm glutened. Fortunately I have learned to talk myself out of them fairly quickly. And they go away after a day or two. Flo
  3. Sour Cream

    where I live (Canada) it is common for sour cream to have starch. This is particularly likely for reduced calorie products. I don't take sour cream in restaurants. Flo
  4. I'm so glad to know that I am not the only one who reacts to cellulose, in whatever form. I get the same reactions as I get to gluten, except no D. It turns up everywhere, even in a lot of gluten-free foods. Its a big problem because most medications use it as a filler. The manufacturers claim it is gluten free; I've even seen it suggested on celiac sites as a "safe" filler.
