I use Jar-o-dophilus, and I'm pretty sure it's Gluten-free Casein-free.

The best probiotic I've found is from USA Labs. I always keep mine in the refrigerator. Also, for anyone that has children...they have a Jr. version that's in a powder base of rice starch. It's the only one that is gluten-free, df, & soy free that I've ever found. Often the childrens tablets have soy, sugar etc. in them. I use the probioplus DDS version.

Here's the website....

I was under the impression that Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) were bad because they promoted the growth of bad bacteria... am I wrong about that?

I just got this off of the primal defense webpage:

"Primal Defense™ is a probiotic product made up of Homeostatic Soil Organisms™ (HSOs), predigested green super foods, and ionic minerals. It is available in caplets or powder form. One caplet is equal to one level scoop of powder and breakdown occurs in less than 15 minutes. You can test this yourself in a glass of water. Primal Defense™ is a vegetarian product and is gluten free. "

terps19,

I'm still learning as well....One of the websites I gave you in my previous posts was from "Whole Approach." Their a company and support group that deal with candida overgrowth. Tarilee is the health professional that moderates the forum. I've attached a couple of posts were she speaks about FOS. I guess it's like a lot of things...it depends on which side of the fence your on. :lol: I'm glad you mentioned it, I've learned a lot by reading through the posts as well! :D

I think the issue is synthetic vs. natural sources of FOS. :unsure:

http://wholeapproachforums.com/groupee/for...4471#8636034471

This is a post that you may have to scroll down some. There's a post by Tarilee and pbitter that were helpful to me. http://wholeapproachforums.com/groupee/for...7574#6676017574

I think most of the natural FOS is derived from chicory root. Lately it seems like chicory root is showing up in lots of gluten free mixes such as Pamela's Amazing Bread Mix and her Luscious Chocolate Cake Mix. I know this is limited info. but I don't have long to type tonight. Hope this helps..... :)

I was using Acidophilus Pearls™

by Enzymatic Therapy:

I am Casein intolerant Lactobacillus acidophilus - what is that?! :unsure:

I use the CVS brand and it is gluten-free, cf and free of some other stuff as well!

I think the CVS brand has Lactobacillus acidophilus in it. Isn't that a form of dairy?

My brand says this on it's FAQ:

"I am lactose intolerant and allergic to milk protein. Can i still use Bio-K+ ?

Yes. In fact, research shows that a daily consumption of fermented dairy foods containing selected bacteria strains can reduce symptoms of lactose intolerance and dairy allergies. This happens because the lactose is fragmented or "predigested" by the friendly bacteria and their production of digestive enzymes. However, it is recommmended that those concerned, start off with 1 tsp. The first day and increase gradually to one full bottle a day, according to the suggested consumption.

I am alergic to casein. Can i still use Bio-K+ ?

Yes, casein is predigested and transformed by the bacteria into peptides wich are easier to assimilate. Also, casein is not to be confused with Lb. casei, the special strain found in Bio-K+. Lb. casei is one of the two active friendly bacteria in Bio-K+.

The CVS brand: It says no milk, or lactose right on the front. And when I googled lactobacillus acidophilus this is what I got.

Lactobacillus acidophilus (L. acidophilus) is the most commonly used probiotic, or "friendly" bacteria. Such healthy bacteria inhabit the intestines and vagina and protect against the entrance and proliferation of "bad" organisms that can cause disease. This is accomplished through a variety of mechanisms. For example, the breakdown of food by L. acidophilus leads to production of lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and other byproducts that make the environment hostile for undesired organisms. L. acidophilus also produces lactase, the enzyme that breaks down milk sugar (lactose) into simple sugars. People who are lactose intolerant do not produce this enzyme. For this reason, L. acidophilus supplements may be beneficial for these individuals.

This is good news! I'm holding a bottle of it right now and it lists barley grass as the first ingredient - they must have changed their "recipe" since I bought it. My bottle also says "100% vegetarian", but not "gluten-free".

    • So, here goes...my visit with the GI specialist  is on Monday.  I had tested positive for the IGG antibody and all other bloodwork was negative.  I had numerous trips to emerg with stomach pain, lower back pain, tingly tummy, and diarrhea with alternating "c" (I had the word constipation).    One diagnosis of diverticulitis, another of IBS, and symptoms continued to get worse....Low B12 for 7 years and abnormal liver (something like hepatocellular disease with cirrhosis).  I only have a glass of wine on the weekends...I had been diagnosed in my early 30s with IBS and imodium helped.  I also had a rash on my elbows and back and that is when my new GP said maybe it is celiac and she sent me for bloodwork and 3 months later finally get to see the GI specialist.  I went gluten free and at first it was hard.  It is much easier now...I think at time I give myself contamination because I get some bouts of pain on occasion and I take buscopan and immodium and then I am fine....I am 100% convinced I have celiac but I guess I really do not understand how the rest of the panel would be negative... The rash, the GI symptoms, the B12, and the liver issue all paint a compelling picture...I never thought I would say this but I hope it is truly diagnosed because then I can move forward with a plan.  I am down 22 pounds and back at the gym very hard and feeling almost normal for the first time in many years....I also find is so strange that my "gluten" attack usuallys starts with a pins and needs tingly sensation in my back and tummy...I have written a full history and have copies of all my test results so the GI specialist takes me seriously...I read his reviews and they are not good....I understand I will have to do gluten before the endoscopy but that fine...just looking forward to this being partly over...Have a great day!  
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faqs/ You can also find lots of information on celiac at the University of Chicago celiac site.  One test they suggest is the anti EMA antibodies.  I don't see that one listed in her results.  Probably because it is more expensive to do.  So they may have skipped it.  The other test they usually do is the total serum IGA levels, which is used to prove that the person's immune system actually makes IgA antibodies.  Some people don't make IgA antibodies, so the IgA tests are useless in them. It looks to me like she makes IgA though, if this is the serum IgA result. IgA 133 mg/dl Reference range 33-200 There are also gene tests they can do.  The genes indicate the possibility of developing celiac disease, not the automatic presence of celiac disease.  About 30% of people in the USA have one of the genes for celiac disease, but only about 1% develop celiac disease. Some of the celiac genes are associated with other autoimmune conditions besides celiac disease.  So there are lists of AI associated conditions with celiac disease.  Sometimes called related conditions. http://www.drschaer-institute.com/us/celiac-disease/associated-conditions-1051.html
    • Blood was drawn this afternoon... they said I could get results tomorrow or even the next day! I also have a GI appt scheduled for June 9th. I am so glad I will have at least some kind of answer pretty soon. I'll let you all know. Thanks again for being so helpful!
    • Thank you so much for those links, I will check into it. Her pediatrician told me this afternoon she is wanting to repeat the bloodwork since that one test was elevated. I'm relieved that her pediatrician didn't dismiss it like the other dr in the practice did.
