Yogurt?

I was just at back to school night and one of the aides asked if my son was the one with Celiac. She went on to say that she noticed I send in yogurt for him and that she is a Celiac as well and was told by her doctor not to eat yogurt. I have read the ingredients and they appear safe. Am I wrong?

I have read and heard somewhere that we should not eat yoghurt. But I think that is just being extra careful. Not all yoghurts have gluten, but some will. I check and recheck the yoghurts I eat, and have never had any reaction to it, except once, when I think it might have been the favour or colouring.

I tend to stick to the same yoghurt, it is plain and seems to have the least additives, but I add whatever I like to it and have no problem with that.

Again, I don't know where this information is comming from....

It's just that simple, read wheat, barley, rye, barley.

Yoplait , without the crumbs and such, is gluten-free.

I eat and drink (the smoothies) Yoplait all the time. I have never had a problem. I have heard somewhere on here, I think, that Dannon will not guarentee that their flavors are gluten free. I think I remember something about their plain yogurt being ok. I am sure others can enlighten us about the Dannon.

Danon is completely untrust worthy in thier ingrendients from a gluten stand point, there is no way to know if they are safe or not, they much around with defintions, and make up new terms. I personaly will not knowingly eat anything with the Danon name on it, and certinlay would not risk my son to them.

It's just that simple, read wheat, barley, rye, barley.

In America you have to add OATS to that list as all mainstream oats in America are contiminated with wheat. I also always add malt to that list, just for carlity since its often listed by itself.

After finishing a round of antibiotics, I grabbed a yogurt container to try and replace some of the bacteria in my gut. It was Breyer's Cream Savers Strawberries and Cream. I read the label, but evidently not carefully enough. I could have sworn it said "corn starch," but I started feeling glutening symptoms afterward. I checked the ingredients on the website and it contains modified food starch, a big red flag for gluten in my book. :( I feel foolish because I was doing so well up til now. I hope it passes soon...

There are several yogurts that are safe for celiacs to eat. Yoplait (made by Kraft), Mountain High Yougurt (says gluten-free on the container and is lower in sugar than other brands), and Kroger yogurts (if I remember correctly VydorScope called and found out they were safe). Hope this helps.

If you have a yogurt maker you can make your own and know that it is safe. Does anyone do that? :rolleyes:

I believe that's true as long as you make sure the live cultures you buy are grown from gluten-free stuff.

Last year, when I was very sick(Spent basically May, June and July in the hospital) I was having Dannon Strawberry yogurt I had called the company a few times, and they basically wouldn't say it was or wasn't. But, it didn't make me sick. I was in a low enough state of health that even tiiny cross contaimination was enough to make me horrible ill. But then the meds I was taking were harsh too.

I was one of the few people that I think had a good hospital exp. with the food. The hospital had a gluten free menu. Two of my nurses had celiac children. They had a briefing with all the nurses that worked shifts on the floor and made them aware of what I could and couldn't eat. They did send my plate back a number of times I didn't even know. They also had two different head chefs of the kitchen come up and talk to me. It was Both chefs said they would prepare my meal themselves. The only time my meal was sent back, was breakfast time, when a few didn't realize they couldn't use the deep fry'ers. But the nurses caught it each time(ok once they didn't but they had already warned me)

I was basically told by the hospital nutrionist. order whatever you want, ignore what the "daily menu" has. Order of the gluten free menu, they can make you whatever you want. I enjoyed a plain chicken breast and baked potato(or two) for lunch and dinner. I had eggs for breakfast, and pan fried hash browns (Ore-Ida)

A few of the nurses even went across the street during lunch breaks and bought those delicious Wild Oats gluten free chocolate chip cookies for me. My Dr. actually ordered me to eat half a package of those cookies a day( I had lost 50 pounds in about a month. was only waying 118 for a bit)

In any event I rambled too much. The Danon didn't bother me, the strawberry kind that is. But then they special ordered Yoplait for me after one nurse just said I should have that instead of Danon.

    • I'm still really new to all this but is it common to have trouble with sleep? I swear since my symptoms got really bad a few months ago I can't get 1 good nights sleep, like a 5 hour stretch is doing real good. Wake up at 3am wide awake almost every night. Told my doctor and they've recommended melatonin, that doesn't work. Tried chamomile and lavender tea, no help. Tried zzquil, that will knock me out but maybe for like an extra hour then I'm really drowsy the next morning from it. I don't know what to do.
    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
