  1. I'm a few years older than you. I have a family member who also eats gluten she's had celaic disease longer than I've been alive. She likes to tell me "oh a bit won't hurt" and I eat gluten here and there" she tells me she gets stomach aches but she ignores them. i stay away from gluten because last time I ate gluten I ended up in the hospital. Tell your parents I agree with the other comments don't eat gluten you can get cancer it can cause other problems too. You may not have a reaction now but it's only a matter of time trust me you do not want to throwing up over and over again and have your stomach hurt and all kinds of symptoms. Just because you don't feel it doesn't mean it isn't doing any damage.
  2. I posted a few weeks ago about being scared to drink the ct scan contrast, I contacted the company who makes it and they told me that it contains gluten. the doctor said "well you have to drink it or we can't do the test." Its like they don't take celaic diease seriously. I've been working hard for months now trying to stay away from gluten I just can't drink that stuff. im still having stomach pains that's why she ordered a ct scan and says it won't be clear without the contrast i don't know what I should do everyone is telling me to just "suck it up" you're only going to be a pain for a little while. Or that it's just "a little gluten" not enough to hurt you. I thought any amount of gluten could hurt you I just can't take that chance and I'm all out of ideas because my stomach still hurts eveyday. thanks if anyone read all of this I would really like you're opinions should I just drink it knowing there's gluten in it? Or just find some other way?
  3. Thanks for the reply I did and she told me that it does unfortunately. I guess we have to find another test because I'm not drinking it.
  4. They gave me the vanilla flavor one.
  5. Hello everyone, I'm a girl in her early 20s. I have a CT scan tomorrow and they want me to drink the contrast and have the dye since it's been 2 years and I still have stomach problems after going gluten free. im scared to drink the contrast I'm scared it has gluten and the doctor told me she doesn't know the ingredients so I'm really just playing the lottery here. i also heard some people have reaction to the dye I can eat shrimp but I'm still warry. I canceled one time before and did an ultra sound but it wasn't clear she wants me to drink the contrast so they can have a clearer picture. i don't know if it's worth the reaction though. Not even my GI doctor can tell me what's in that stuff and I'm terrified of dying from it or puking all week long or any of the other many things that can happen. I haven't slept all night just thinking about it. Edit, okay everyone I contacted the manufacturer and she told me that all their contrasts does contain gluten I'm canceling my appointment thank you guys for the replies
