  1. I woke up feeling really crappy this morning and was wondering what was safe to take... Luckily the cold/flu syrup I had (i hate taking pills, but syrup I can swallow easier) said gluten free on the bottle. I really need some cough drops or other stuff to take because it hasn't really helped me any. Also is there a cough drop or sore throat lozenge that someone can recommend that is gluten-free??
  2. Does anyone know if Kellog's Rice Crispy treats are safe to eat? I looked at the ingredients and it did not look like there was any wheat in it but it didn't state it was gluten free either. For that matter is rice or even marshmallows gluten-free???
  3. gluten-free And Fast Food?

    Mmmm.... Makes me want a frosty
  4. gluten-free And Fast Food?

    Does anyone know if there are any "fast" places that have things that are gluten-free on their menu? i have heard that mcDonalds does use separate friers for their chicken and their fries but i was wondering what was safe at other places like Carl's jr or jack in the box. i know that they aren't the most healthy of places to eat but when you are on the go it's just difficult to find much of anything on the go that is fast AND gluten-free....
  5. I was just wondering if hair loss is a "symptom" of going gluten free? I thought that I heard someone say that it was but I was just wondering if that is true. Lately it looks like my hair has been getting thinner but I don't know if it is the gluten-free diet that is doing it or something else. If it is comming from the gluten-free diet, how can I make my hair stop from thining. Please help!
  6. Does anyone know which over the counter pain killers such as tylenol, tylenol pm, etc. are Gluten Free? Also which over the counter allergy medications are safe? Someone told me Claratin was not safe to take because it had gluten in it. Specifically i was wondering about benadryl or the generic form of it. Also does anyone know if Generic Vicodin or Generic Tylenol #3 (Tylenol with Codeine) is Gluten free? It seems like no one can give me straight answer about any of these medications and it's just been getting frustrating.
  7. Caramel gluten-free?

    Mostly the caramel that is used in candies and the stuff thats considered a topping
  8. Does anyone know if there is wheat or gluten used in caramel? I've been trying to look and no one seems to know
  9. Does any one know if Yeast extract has gluten in it or is considered to be something NOT to eat for those with a gluten intolerance?
  10. Newly Gluten Free And Sacred

    I guess a lot of it is that because when I got really sick those were the things I was eating and back then nothing would stay down. Also my doctor keeps suggesting that red meat may not be the best thing. With dairy I almost always seem to get diarrhea or a stomach ache after eating it. Especially ice cream, although it doesn't usually happen for several hours after I have eaten it so I am not sure if there's something else that's going on. Over all I guess I am just afraid to step out of my comfort zone for no other reason than that I am afraid.
  11. There may be an obvious answer to this question but if there is no "wheat" or gluten" listed in the ingredients and in the area where it says "May Contain" or "Contains" and again no wheat or gluten is listed does that make it gluten free?
  12. I have recently found myself to be gluten intolerant and have since had to go gluten free. Lately I have just been feeling very scared about stepping out of my comfort zone and trying things that I have not had before. Like chicken I have no problem with but I am still very hesitant to have red meat or dairy and I am getting very frustrated because I feel like I am punishing myself and I really shouldn't be. I am so afraid to try something that half the time I won't eat it because I am so afraid of getting sick. I have found a lot of gluten free products that I like but at the same time I feel like I am just eating the same thing over and over again and I am getting frustrated because I want to branch out but at the same time I do not want to because I am afraid of getting sick. Any advice?
  13. I am fairly knew to the whole gluten free thing and a friend was telling me that some medications may contain some form of gluten. I have tried looking on the backs of some over the counter medications but I could not see anything listed that looked to be gluten. And with my prescription medications the pharmacist doesn't even seem to know if they do contain gluten and doesn't know where I could go to find out. I am at a loss as to even being on where to look for this information. I am currently taking Prevacid and Omeprezol... My GYN doctor reccently gave me prescriptions ofr Cyclesa and Lexapro but I have not filled the order because I do not wish to pay for something I can not take. Any help would be greatly appreciated
