My daughter has been taking a "wheat and gluten free" multivitamin for several weeks now........and I discovered this morning that there is BARLEY GRASS and OAT GRASS in it....could this be a problem? Know of a good multi-vitamin...? She was told by dr. to stay away from wheat, corn, oats, dairy, etc. AND, don't know how we missed it, but on a snack bar, in clear printing it says "OATS"...so that has glutened her, also...more clues to why she is not feeling well. :( Thanks.

I use GNC's SoloDay. It's relatively cheap for a multivitamin (about $6 for 90 pills), and it is also soy free. It works great!

Nature Made is gluten-free and I have taken it for years now. Last week I was in a Puritan Pride store and they claim their vitamin is gluten-free, but it has barley grass and truthfully--I dont care if they think there isnt enough barley in it to constitute gluten--it's not up to them to decide how much is not enough for me. I wont purchase their vitamins ever, now. Deb

I have to avoid corn too. I use Futurebiotics multivitamin for women (free of corn, dairy, gluten, etc), though I am sure they would have a gluten and corn free version for childern or younger folks if that one isn't appropriate. Also, I take Country Life (free of corn, gluten, dairy, etc) calcium and biotin, and they make a ton of various vitamins too. I found both of these at Harry's, which is part of the Whole Foods stores.

Be careful about vitamins--even if they are gluten free, they might be more "neutral" than "positive." Consumer Reports investigated vitamins, and found that many don't have all the nutrients they claim on their labels. Even more of those had undigestible elements--even if they were in the vitamin, your body could only absorb a certain percentage of them.

I probably sound like a broken record, but I highly recommend Usana vitamins. I was on a run-of-the-mill gluten-free vitamin, and I was still having lots of wierd symptoms. My dad bought me a months' supply, and I had a night-and-day difference. If I forget to take my vitamins for a few days, the weird stuff comes back: anxiety, tingling fingers and toes, chest pains, dizziness, all that. They're pricey, but it is completely worth it to feel healthy!

I know of a great whole food supplement that is better than any vitamin I've ever taken and it is gluten-free. It's called Juice Plus - it's a capsule that has the concentrated powder of 17 fruits and vegetables. Because it includes only the outer portion of the oat and barley grain it is gluten-free. Me and my family have been taking it for 2 years and are healthier than ever. I'm the only one in my family with Celiac and getting the nutrients from these fruits and veggies every day is far better than any manufactured vitamin out there.

If you want more info, you can email me at my other address - free2behealthy@optonline.net and I can send it to you.

Also, it's free for kids between 6 and 15 years old through their Children's Research. That's how my daughters get theirs. Me and my husband take it and get it for free for my 2 girls. Great nutrition at a great savings.

Good luck! :)

The suppliment I use and trust is one I get from Whole Foods called Blue Bonnet Maxi One.

It's gluten free, corn free, wheat free, barley free, rice free, sodium free, sugar free, milk free, and yeast

free, one complaint though it's really big!

It's good to see more companies making gluten free supplements. :) I definitely prefer Juice Plus though because it is a whole food and not a vitamin. I love that it is the fruit and vegetable powders in an easy to swallow vegetarian capsule. And the Chewables are pretty good and the Gummies are great - we even eat them as a snack in my family.

    • Why not give up supplements for a while?  Not everyone is deficient in vitamins and minerals -- or at least dangerously so.  Ask your doctor to check.   I take no supplements.  My doctor runs a vitamin panel at my yearly check-up.   I do make sure my diet is healthy and varied -- like eating veggies even at breakfast!   People who are gluten free and eat junk food will probably need supplements.   Look to your diet, lotions, shampoo....anything you can swallow to see if you are getting gluten into your diet.  That is most likely the cause of your recent symptoms.  At least rule out that you are having a celiac flare-up.  
    • So to repeat, you will have to do a gluten challenge which is 12 weeks of eating 1 slice of bread per day for the blood tests or 2 weeks of gluten eating for an endoscopy.
    • I'm celiac for less than 3 months.   I'm starting to get concern about getting all the necessary vitamins being gluten free.   Recently my joint pain has increased, pulsating pain in my head, and sore areas in legs and neck have started recently.  Or course, anxiety too. I'm currently taking a Centrum Men's Multivitamin.  Here's what in it: Vitamin A 3,500 IU (29 % as Beta - Carotene)  70%
      Vitamin C 90mg  150%
      Vitamin D 1,000 IU  250%
      Vitamin E 45IU  150%
      Vitamin K 60mcg  75%
      Thiamin 1.2mg  80%
      Riboflavin 1.3mg  76%
      Niacin 16mg  80%
      Vitamin B6 2mg  100%
      Folic Acid 200 mcg  50%
      Vitamin B 126mcg  100%
      Biotin 40mcg  13%
      Pantothenic Acid 15mg  150%
      Calcium 210mg  21%
      Iron 8 mg  44%
      Phosphorus 20 mg  2%
      Iodine 150mcg  100%
      Magnesium 100 mg  25%
      Zinc 11mg  73%
      Selenium 100mcg  143%
      Copper 0.9mg  45%
      Manganese 2.3mg 115%
      Chromium 35mcg  29%
      Molybdenum 50mcg  67%
      Chloride 72 mg  2% Potassium 80 mg  2%   I really can't believe after being diagnoses that my doctor didn't get me a list of recommend supplements to include the vitamin deficiencies by not having gluten in my diet.   Everyone has to do it on their own. I don't really want to avoid taking a bunch of pills in the morning if I can.   But I'm concerned I'm not getting enough Magnesium and Iron.   Other too? Any recommendations of supplements to increase what I'm currently taking.   Or just on supplement that includes everything I need? Thx.            
    • As far as the grey hair goes, I understand how you feel as I started going seriously grey in my mid 20's also.  As cyclinglady stated, there is nothing you can do about that except color you hair or live with the grey hair.  I chose to color it. Grey hair is generally either a genetic thing or it can be the result of vitamin deficiencies or illness.  It also can't be reversed, which would be heavenly, I agree! You definitely need a full  thyroid panel done because you cannot diagnose Hashi's on antibodies alone.  I have Hashi's so know the drill.  No doctor should tell people to just go gluten free without some level of testing for Celiac.  Those with Hashi's can benefit greatly from going gluten free but that is because those that it helps noticeably also probably do have full blown Celiac.....without Celiac or non-Celiac gluten sensitivity, the gluten-free diet won't help. The supplement you mentioned is just that....a supplement.  If you do have true Hashi's, you'll need more than that to help keep thyroid function normal for you.  I think you need to see another doctor because your doc is missing the boat here.  You really should have a full thyroid panel done and a full Celiac panel.  It is important to diagnosis (or not) these 2 conditions early so you won't have more problems down the road.  Can you request more blood work?
    • Lotions used topically are not a concern at all unless they contain gluten and you ingest them into your mouth.  Gluten has to get into your GI tract, (which begins in your mouth) for damage to occur.  Ditto for hair care products.  As most salons have you bend your head back into a sink to wash, the odds of any shampoo or conditioner getting into your mouth are slim to none. If you shower and let the soap and water run down your face, then make your home shampoo/products gluten free.
