:blink: I have been searching for a good gluten free multi-vitamin from a company that I can trust. Can anyone recommend one?

Centrum assured me that their multi-vit is gluten-free. Whether or not you call it a good vitamin... I won't go into that debate. :-)

Here's a message I posted in another forum.

I just wanted to let everyone know to be careful of the supplements you buy. My nutritionist says she has only found 4 or 5 brands that are safe for gluten allergies. Many supposed gluten free products still dust their lines with flour. The following products are what she has deemed safe for me as far as supplements go....

Tyler Products

Metagenics Products

Oregon Health

KTS Liquid Minerals

My P-5-P I can't find the company on, but this is a start if you are interested. I realize everyone may not be as sensitive as me, but she has told me if it is processed, be suspicious! She only recommends Knudsen fruit juices, etc.. Once I totally detoxify myself I'll have to see what I'm truly allergic too.

All of this is costing a small fortune, but I am excited to find out what it feels like to be healthy.

Hope this helps you.

Blessings,

Lily

I wanted to tell everyone about a wonderful gluten free vitamin. The vitamin is called Daily Free and it is produced by a company called Nutrilite. This vitamin is free of yeast, gluten, sugar, iron, and alfalfa. Nutrilite is one of the largest manufacturers of branded vitamins and mineral tablets in the world, with product sales in more than 40 countries. Nutrilite not only manufactures all of its own products, it also grows all of the raw materials used in them. Nutrilite farms and operations are all certified organic. Anyone that is looking for a vitamin that is truly gluten free from a company that cares about the quality of its products will love this one. You can order the vitamin online by setting up an account at www.foundmyfreedom.com. The vitamins cost $40.35 for clients and $27.85 for members (product number AA0088). There are 180 tablets per bottle and since you only take one a day, one bottle will last 6 months!! I just can't say enough wonderful things about them. I have felt so much better since I started using these.

I just picked up a multiple vitamin which is gluten free. Solgar VM-75. The antioxidant levels were not as good as my multiple vitamin before my diagnosis so I am supplementing my supplement with another gluten free vitamin from Solgar which is called Advanced Antioxidant Formula. Just incase you are thinking I work for Solgar, I don't. Then request was for a "reputable" vitamin and Solgar is that.

oneyellowducky,

I took your advice and tried the Nutrilite vitamins from foundmyfreedom.com after doing some research of my own. I found out that Nutrilite is the oldest vitamin manufacture and they actually invented the multivitamin. When I registred with the site and searched for the vitamins they said they were gluten free right on the website. I love it when a company will inform you whether a product is gluten free or not and you don't have to call them. I have been using them for a few weeks and I think they're wonderful.

    • Popcorn, wine, as well as coffee are my favorite things.  Have you identified what is left to enjoy?  
    • I think you need to take a little time to learn about DH and celiac disease.  Celiac and DH are technically autoimmune disorders.  This is about DH: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ Learning about celiac disease (overview): https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/what-is-celiac-disease/ Testing for celiac disease via blood test: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/screening/ I think the full panel is around $400 and the basic budget screening which is pretty darn good (TTG IgA) is under $100.   If you are paying for your medical care (even under insurance) you have the RIGHT to copies of everything.  So, when your doctor orders a lab test, ask for a copy of the order, so YOU know what he is ordering.  Then you can google to see if he/she is ordering the right things.  Get a copy of the results.  Get a copy of the costs/receipt if you are paying out of pocket.  Put your requests in writing.   I think some labs and doctors use the term for gluten allergy incorrectly.  1.  There is a wheat allergy (IgE) that is like a peanut allergy which can cause anaphylactic reactions (throat swelling, breathing issues, drop in blood pressure).  There are some blood tests that are about 50% accurate, along with skin scratch tests (also not super accurate.   2.  There is celiac disease (autoimmune that when exposed to gluten attacks the intestinal track, skin or brain) triggered by gluten (I gave you the blood tests: TTG, DGP EMA).  3) Non-celiac Gluten sensitivity or Intolerance which is like celiac in terms of symptoms, but no antibodies are generated and intestinal damage does not occur.  This diagnosis is reached when you have failed the first two as there are n tests for it.   Read through the DH section of this forum for symptoms and tips.   I hope this helps.   Finally, if you really suspect DH, you  can always go gluten free.  Keep in mind that you need to be strict and you need to adhere to the diet for at least six months to a year.  
    • I mean I might get a prescription refill, or a new vitamin pill for example, and take it for awhile, with absolutely no symptoms.  As we know, no symptoms does not mean no damage being done.   I will feel fine for weeks, but then I start feeling awful, like a bad flu coming on.  I never did get the intestinal symptoms others get.  This for me is the hardest part of having Celiac's, figuring out what did it.  Last month I ended up with pneumonia because I thought the achey symptoms I was having was from gluten, maybe from cross contamination even though my kitchen is off limits to gluten, maybe from some new prescription, maybe from some new tea I was trying, maybe from new vitamins (marked gluten free but not certified, those have gotten me before), so I stopped taking all of that but didn't feel better and kept getting worse.   It took me awhile to figure out I actually had a flu and by that time it went to my lungs and had to go to urgent care. 
    • If you get accidentally glutened, how do you keep doing it for several weeks? Or do you mean you get glutened once and several weeks later you react? 
    • I think, at least from my personal experience, that these tests are accurate if you were diagnosed including blood work that was positive.  All of the tests on my panel were positive by large numbers at diagnosis and over the next year, they went to very low normal for the ranges given.  My GI symptoms were gone by then and the lingering neuro ones took longer to heal but they did. I would assume in a highly symptomatic Celiac, that resolution of symptoms, normalization of the blood work and weight gain would indicate healing.  Whether I am 100% healed or not doesn't matter as my health is far better today than it was in my youth.  I have not developed any more AI diseases than the 4 I already have and I call that a big win. I think doctors do not take into account enough symptom resolution, weight gain for the skinny Celiac's or weight loss for those on the opposite end of the spectrum, as important markers for healing.  I am not even sure if it is totally necessary for a person to heal 100% as there is overlap in the small intestine and nutrients are absorbed not in just one place, making it a brilliant design, when you think of it.  If your health has improved dramatically on the gluten-free diet, along with the other things mentioned, then consider yourself healed well enough that you've regained your health back.  Repeat endoscopy's are really for those still having problems.
