EmilyRDH replied to elefky's topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsI'm a Dental Hygienist, and I will check at work tomorrow the brand names of products we use that are gluten free. I know our polishing paste is definitely Gluten free (I want to say the brand is "NEXT" and it does contain fluoride), but I'll check more tomorrow! The filling materials for composite (white) fillings, and Amalgam (silver) fillings should also be gluten free. Endo (root-canal) stuff should be too--- but I'm not quite sure about the Endo, but I'll get back to you soon!
Wow, I just read the post from WhenDee, and I'm totally new to this forum and Celiac/gluten intolerance, but my symptoms are almost exactly the same, but much milder. I have frequent headaches, bad acid reflux for the past 5 years, hair loss, pretty bad joint pain, (constipation) , tired, and vitamin D deficiency (even tho I'm very active outside). My doctor is very nice and informative, but is referring me to the university of Chicago for further evaluation because my genetic testing was very low, but the antibody test came back positive for celiac, the biopsy's of my intestine & colon came back negative for celiac, chrons & colitis. I've been gluten free for about a week-- and haven't noticed anything different yet-- but reading all these posts makes me hopeful! The whole reason I went to the Dr. in the first place was due to the acid reflux-- it would be AMAZING if this diet will help reduce my symptoms!!! (But I'm not looking forward to the weight gain!) Thanks for all your information!!! I've also been called a hypochondriac my whole life!!! (I do tend to be pretty paranoid tho, lol)
