  1. Can anyone tell me if Finasteride is gluten free? It is not on the Gluten Free Drug list but the website states that it is gluten free. I will call the manufacturer on Monday but for the time being does anyone know or take Finasteride? Thank you for your assistance.
  2. Try 100 Percent Pure it is a GREAT brand and most of their products with the exception for 1 or 2 are gluten free. I have been using it for years without issue and I am very sensitive. You can also try Gabriel Cosmetics, Omnia Cosmetics, Mirabella Cosmetic, Red Apple Lipstick, Ecco Beauty
  3. I feel your pain. Gluten free and corn free is difficult. I eat Erewhon rice Crisps or Barbara's makes a rice crisp cereal as well. You can also try yogurt. Read the ingredients some have corn syrup or corn starch. Just an fyi for you high fructose corn syrup does not contain any corn.
  4. I know this is silly question but I have used Dermorganic Hair Spray‎ for so many years. I am having trouble finding it to purchase at a reasonable price. Is there anyone that can recommend a good aerosol hairspray that is gluten free? Thank you.
  5. It is very difficult to avoid corn. It is in so many things. Canola is not corn so you should not have a problem with that unless the oil was part corn oil and part canola. My son has a severe allergy to corn where his throat closes up if he eats corn. I myself have also developed an intolerance to corn since finding out I have celiac. You need to look out for maltodextrin - that is usually derived from corn - trying finding food without it - difficult - it is in everything - Gaterade! Watch for baking powder, bread crumbs, double check all your medicines - most probably have corn. It is going to be trial and error to find out how much you could tolerate. Powdered sugar has corn. But they sell a powder sugar without corn on Amazon. Look out for corn syrup - again in so many things. If you google corn allergy there is alot of information. My son is ok with high fructose corn syrup since the corn protein is removed but he can not ear corn syrup. Good Luck! Michele
  6. It can be overwhelming at first but you do have lots of options. Red Apple Lipstick and Acure that others mentioned are gluten free. Gabriel Cosmetics which you can buy on-line which was also mentioned has great products. Tarte Cosmetic is gluten free. There is also a brand called 100 Percent Pure which has so many products that are gluten free which you can buy on-line. All but one of their mascaras is gluten-free. I use Cerave creams without any issues and I am super sensitive. When in doubt contact the company - many are very helpful and if they are not I do not want to give them my business! Good Luck.
  7. I have never used the hair care products from Acure - only the face washed and creams but they are all very good and i have not had any problems. You get them at Target and on Amazon. I have used the DermaOrganic line of hair products with no problems - you can them on Amazon and at Ulta (i believe). The other lines of hair care that i have not used but have heard are gluten free are Mineral Fusion and It's a 10 has many options - you can look on their website for the gluten-free list or there was a post not to long ago with some information. http://www.youbeauty.com/beauty/gluten-free-hair-products/#1 You might want to try the link above - remember to look into it yourself a bit because the info might be old or not true - but it is a starting point. Good luck!
  8. thank you so much - i have no idea why i could not find that email address
  9. I am super bummed. I just went to order my breakfast staple for the last 10 years from Amazon - my case of Enjoy Life's Crunchy Rice - over the last number of years it has gone though name and packaging changes but it has always been there for me for breakfast There is no more in stock at Amazon so I contacted the company and found out that they are no longer going to be making any cereals. No Crunchy Rice or Crunchy Flax . Super sad. I need to find a replacement and i am very picky. I am looking for a simple cereal not sweet and not mushy in milk. I am not able to eat corn so it can not contain corn. Any ideas for me? Michele
  10. Thank you for this information. I am trying to find contact information for this company It's a 10 so i can inquire about some other allergies that i I have but i can not seem to find an email address or customer service phone number. Could you please pass on the information that you used to contact the company. Thank you so much!!! Michele
  11. My doctor just prescribed me the medicine ZOLMITRIPTAN for my migraines. Before i pick it up and try it I am trying to find out if this is gluten free. Has anyone taken this medicine or had any idea if it gluten-free? I checked gluten free drugs.com and it is not on the list. Any input would be appreciated.
  12. Another good brand to try is 100 percent pure. i have used many of their product and have been satisfied. The only product that has gluten in it is one of their mascaras. Customer service is super helpful.
  13. I know for sure contact - the Dr told me to be on a low nickel, cobalt ...diet if i could - i am not sure yet if limiting the contact will be enough as this is all so new to me.
  14. I have just been diagnosed with allergies to nickel, cobalt, and gold. So now i have the reason that I have been breaking out in a rash all over my body. I just do not know where to turn at this point - I have celiac disease, a corn intolerance, and now i find more allergies. It seems nickel and cobalt are found in everything - food, jewelry, medicine, personal products...... Is there is anyone else out there who also suffers with allergies to these metals and can give me some guidance as i start down this road? Thank you.
  15. Corn Allergy

    Thank you for help - it did start out looking like pimples - or spider bites - not green at all. I am going to try to cut out all the corn - i am still eating the bagged salad which I understand is rinsed in a corn wash. Does anyone know if the vegetables that you get in the bag that are microwavable are rinsed in the same corn wash?
