  1. I know this is an old thread, but it might still be helpful if someone comes across it. Coke products are listed as gluten free because they meet the Codex standard of less than 200 parts per million (ppm). However, the FDA which does not have official regulation of foods to be labeled as gluten free as of yet, recommends 20 ppm for those suffering from Celiac disease or gluten intolerance. I was beginning to have some gluten-like symptoms recently (not a stomach ache, but skin issues and diarrhea) and couldn't figure out what could be causing it. I truly believe it is the Coke. I, for the first time since being diagnosed, was not pregnant anymore, and was once again enjoying caffeine products and drinking 1-2 Cokes a day. I only quit them 4 days ago and am already noticing a difference. Here is a link to an article that explains further on the Coke/gluten issue: http://www.glutenfreeclub.com/articles/caramel.html The article is dated 2007, so there is probably more recent information, but none that I could find quickly.
  2. I just went to that website. That is a really great reference, thanks for the tip. I have never had follow-up work and currently being pregnant am constantly worrying about my diet. I was diagnosed in Jan and found out I was pregnant in Feb, so a blood test to confirm I am on the right track would put my mind at ease. Thanks again!
  3. No, I have not really asked my OB about it, but I go back in Wednesday for a regular appointment, so I can bring it up then. Thanks for the advice!
  4. I was diagnosed January 20th, 2010 with Celiac disease after a positive biopsy result. The follow-up visit to the biopsy was with a RN who gave me a three page pamphlet on Celiac and sent me on my way. If it weren't for the internet, and more specifically this particular website, I would have been utterly lost as to how to navigate in a gluten-filled world while trying to become gluten-free. Long story short, February I found out we were expecting our first child. I would like to find a doctor who knows more about the disease and can help me as I try to get healthy and keep my baby healthy. I live in a small town in Arkansas--Jonesboro. It is about an hour from Memphis, TN, however, and I feel that is my best bet to find a good doctor. So if anyone has any recommendations I would be very grateful! The doctors around here mean well, but are very uneducated on the topic.
