Loryna Pills?

3 posts in this topic

Loryna – a generic form of Yaz – was what I recently got at my new pharmacy when I went to pick up my Yaz (which is gluten-free). It's not listed on the glutenfreedrugs.com site, and I can not find anything online about its gluten-free status. The manufacturer's website leaves a number and email to contact them to find out ingredients of any medicine they make. The number goes to voice mail, so I just emailed them and am waiting to hear back.


But does ANYone here know if it's gluten-free or not? Ugh I hate this wild goose chase they make you go through with every single Rx. Can't take it until I know, might have to try to return it and just HOPE they can replace it with something else (and then probably go through this again, wheee). Any help is so immensely appreciated!

Ok the wonderful guy who runs the glutenfreedrugs.com site got back to me before anyone else (including the manufacturer). In case anyone else here ever ends up in this situation, the magic answer is : Corn Starch. They use corn starch, not wheat starch. Also, the company annoyingly refuses to say it's gluten-free just because they don't want to officially guarantee it and be liable for anything. But it has no gluten in it, yay!

    • Hope you're feeling better soon Awol On fruit juice this: is how I feel. Orange juice is marketed as one of the healthiest things you can have but the reality is that it's a concentrated dose of sugar that hits the bloodstream without any fibre to slow down digestion. Try eating 5 oranges and you'll give up quickly, but you can easily drink the juice from them and more.  Fruit juice causes a spike in insulin which can lead to a sugar crash. Used to happen to me mid morning till I stopped drinking fruit juice. It's not even that high in Vitamin C, if you're eating some veggies each day you probably have all you need of that in your diet already in any case. Now I have fruit juice on special occasions, its no longer a regular part of my diet. To be honest when I do it often tastes unbearably sweet and I'm tempted to water it down. A habit worth breaking in my view.
    • This page on the Pepsi site has a chart that lists allergens that are in some of their beverages. http://www.pepsicobeveragefacts.com/home/Allergens It's a pretty handy chart to look at and find the info.  Their sodas are not listed as having wheat, but they didn't put barley in the chart.  Rats.
    • I tried saving receipts and itemizing everything one year. It came out just a few dollars below the standard deduction so I don't even bother anymore. Plus, I don't eat much bread or noodles, the older I get. The hassle of being gluten free has turned me into a fresh fruit, vegetable and meat person.  Good luck.
    • Thanks Ennis and cycling lady, Ennis thanks for letting me know I'm not alone on the goofy intolerance stuff. cycling lady I'd love an orange tree that must be great to just go pluck one to get your serving. We do fruits regularly here too.  I just test the lands of processed land occasionally and apparently the land mines are everywhere. I chose homemade almond milk today.  I am just perplexed my son reacted too which is the concerning thing to me. From the research I've done and your suggestions it's best we remove the product from our list of potential items for it clearly is not a match. have a good day
    • Drop the dairy and if your eating any drop oats. Enzymes to digest lactose are produced by the tips of the villi, so your going to have issues with til they heal. Remove for a few months at least change over to a nut based milk, some hard cheeses might still be fine but you might want to change over to vegan/dairy free versions of it for a while then try reintroducing them.  Fruits yeah large amounts of sugar are more of a issue then the fiber and bother are going to cause bloating, gas, etc. Try eating more dark green leafy veggies, smaller amounts of fruit and eating nuts, seeds, etc in there to up fiber without the sugar and get some fats in there that way, If you eat meats stews, soups in large pots are going to be your friend for awhile easy, simple, cheap, and can be done in batches, and portioned off for a week at a time. Check out the 101 thread for more info, I think some of our EU members can help you more with finding products that I can, same with supplements. Cross contamination and chances your still eating gluten unknowingly are highly possible there is a HUGE learning curve refer to hte 101 thread for more info. That covers the basics. welcome to the club? https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/
