I need a suppliment. I can't keep anything in me for so long. Can I take Ensure or is there a suppliment that will not cause problems?

Based on this website I found both Pedialyte and Ensure are gluten-free.

I don't know how old those product statements are so you might want to check the company's website just to be sure. Good luck and I hope you feel better!

I am not sure I understand. What kind of supplement are you looking for?

2 1/2 years ago when I got so dehydrated before diagnosis, I drank pedialite and continued to drink it for about a month after diagnosis. I needed to get some nutrients in me. I really don't think that that has any gluten in it, because I would have thrown it up like I did all other food. A little over a year ago, I lost more weight with our move to a smaller home. I drank high protein Ensure several times a day and I know then that it was gluten free.

Hi,

I drank Ensure (choc or straw) about 1 a day for about the first 2 months on the diet with no problem for me except for the cost. Everything it seemed in the beginning with the exception of naturally gluten free food came with sticker shock. I was eating a lot of food in addition to this supplement and everything was ok.

Problem is I am unable to keep any foods from coming out in the form of D. Also, I cannot eat corn, rice or any soy, eggs or milk products. Does Ensure have any of those in them.

I know that Ensure is gluten free, it says so on the label. BUT it has tons of soy in it and started making me sick after drinking it for a couple of days, and I don't have a soy intolerance (that I know of). So maybe look into something else that doesn't rely so much on soy protein.

Hope this helps.

That list is great. I'm going to add it to my favorites. Thanks

For dehydration, I've been drinking Gatorade as it's gluten free (here in Australia at least). I don't think it has corn/soy/dairy in it either. I have a hard time getting enough water down

I bought pedialyte (or the equiv. here) but I haven't had to use it yet because I'm feeling better already. The chemist said that it was gluten free, but I'm not sure about corn/soy/dairy etc..

If you are severly dehyrdated, you need to get to a doctor asap. Dehydration is no joke and I don't think pedialyte would help enough at that stage.

I've been to the hospital emergency room 3 times in the last week and they give me IV solution and I wonder if the IV solution has anything that would make me ill. My doctor comes back tomorrow and I have an appointment. My GI appointment is still one week away (next Monday) and can't get in anytime sooner as I am a new patient. I'll call the pharmacy (chemist) and see if pedialyte is ok. Thanks

Sorry. Was resting. Yes, I stopped gluten exactly 2 weeks ago and saw some improvement in dizziness and upset stomach, but my bowels contined to get worse. Now I'm really bad with D and weight loss.

Did you ask what was in the IV? You gotta make sure to do that with anything and everything that goes into your body - even if it's at the hospital, they won't know unless you ask them sometimes :s It's like if you're allergic to penicilin and they give it to you because you don't have an allergy alert tag or can't tell them.. Not good!

    • Hi Matt,  Thanks for taking the time to reply!  I completely agree haha.  Thanks for the links - I'll give them a read over!  I think it was a mixture of the first time travelling with being gluten-free and the added bonus of the language barrier, it made me dread meal times when usually food is the first thing I think about when travelling to new places! Again, I think the planning element was also a factor, not being able to walk past a nice bakery without walking in - why do most Berlin train stations have bakeries in everyone?!?! THE SMELL!!!  Haha, good excuse! Could have used that in the hotel restaurant (arrived late the first night) and the only avail dish was a dry chicken Caesar salad (literally 3 thin slices of chicken, 5 cherry tomatoes and a plate of lettuce).  I am I'll give the website a look over too - thank you! My app's with my consultant are every 6 months, basically was just sent away with no info/advice given and feeling the struggle now that reality has set in that this is for good!  Hope you are well! 
    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!
