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!

    • I am curious which gene you have?  DQ6?
    • Tapioca is also a common source for "modified food starch."
    • Thanks for all your help. I got my new test results in. I'm surprised by how fast they came back. It is a different lab (different insurance) and fortunately, it is easier to read, but unfortunately, the results still seem a bit off from a clear cut answer.  Gliadin DP Igg was elevated,  along with my EMA.  The tTG IgA was not elevated on this test, although it was equivocal last time but on a completely different scale since it was from a different lab.     It seems odd that the tTG IgA is lower. Does anyone know anything about that?  At the same time, EMA and Gliadin DP IgG are higher.   I appreciate everyone's input. Until now, I have only been seeing an endocrinologist and my primary care.  They both seem to be aware of celiac but not incredibly confident in navigating the diagnosis.  My endo shrugged off the first test results as not that high.  Obviously, I don't want to have celiac, but I wanted a second opinion.  I was glad that my primary care wanted to at least look at tests again. I'm not sure yet what the next steps will be.   Celiac Serology Profile with Reflex to Endomysial Antibody (EMA), IgA Titer by IFA   NAME VALUE REFERENCE RANGE F Endomys. IgA Screen Positive  A Neg. at 1:5 ("") F Endomys. IgA Titer 1:10  A Not Indicated (titer) F IgA 161 70-400 (mg/dL) F TTG IgA 10.7 0.0-14.9 (U/mL) - Reference Range: - 0.0-14.9 U/mL = Negative - >=15.0 U/mL = Positive F Interp Data See Note  ("") - Test Negative Positive - Gliadin IgA 0.0-14.9 >=15.0 - Gliadin IgG 0.0-14.9 >=15.0 - TTG IgA 0.0-14.9 >=15.0 - EMA Titer >= 1:5 F Interp Test: See Result Note:  ("") - RESULT INTERPRETATION: - Results support a diagnosis of Celiac disease. - TTG, IgA EMA,IgA AGA,IgA AGA,IgG Total IgA - -------- ------- ------- ------- --------- - Neg Pos Neg Pos N/A F Gliadin DP IgG 16.7  H 0.0-14.9 (U/mL) - Reference Range: - 0.0-14.9 U/mL = Negative - >=15.0 U/mL = Positive F Gliadin DP IgA 4.3 0.0-14.9 (U/mL) - Reference Range: - 0.0-14.9 U/mL = Negative - >=15.0 U/mL = Positive
    • In the rare instance that "modified food starch" is made from wheat, it will say so in the ingredients or Contains statement.  If you wonder what it is made from, email or call and ask.  I think its usually corn or potato Progresso is part of a large company.  they would not label something gluten-free unless they know it is.  Its a law in the US and Canada.    
    • Progresso soup check the label on their gluten free products, modified food starch is not gluten free.
