Ok, I am new to this with my son being diagnosed this year, but I like to read up on things that will make big changes in my life...and if you have celiac disease even a speck of gluten can cause problems. You may not feel anything physically, but inside it is going to cause complications. Do you people read up on a serious disease you were diagnosed with????? Seriously, trace amounts of gluten add up and I am sorry but I am not putting my child at risk by allowing him something that contains the word malt in it. They are not safe, and if you truly care about yourself and you have celiac disease you will read up on what it does to your body when you consume gluten.

Here is some great advice....when in doubt, do without!!!!

Long time followers of the diet know that it is not possible to be 100% gluten free in our world. Gluten is everywhere, and you will encounter some.

Even products from so-called gluten-free facilities are subject to contamination from outside sources. At best, and at a high cost, products can be tested for gluten at 5 ppm. Mainstream manufacturers do not test at all, and "gluten-free" facilities which do test can only test to a detection limit. Glutino test to 20 ppm. El Peto test to 5 ppm. In both cases, it is probably zero, but that cannot be proven.

Your body regenerates at a certain rate. The celiac game is to keep the inevitable gluten ingestion at a level that the body heals faster than damage occurs.

Even assuming the worst case for content, ppm is not the whole answer. If I eat one slice of bread that has 20 ppm, or four slices of bread that have 5 ppm, the total amount of gluten is exactly the same in both cases. A tiny medicine tablet with 200 ppm would be less than even one slice of 5 ppm bread.

I'm glad this one has been dug up. The Celiac organisation Food Directory List says in the UK that Tesco own-brand Rice Krispies are within 20ppm. I've been eating them and my symptoms are quite mild anyway so hard to detect whether they are OK or not. My instinct is that Asda own brand Cornflakes are more innocuous FWIW. The problem with cereal in the 'Free From" isles of supermarkets is a) the packets are tiny and b ) they're very expensive, so was quite keen to work out which 'normal' products are OK.

    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further. 
    • Also, have you been tested for H. Pylori infection?  I think I have seen that many ulcers can be attributed to that. It is also diagnosed with a breath test.  Hang in there. Many people have been in your shoes.  I wish it were easier.  
    • Another thing to investigate is SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth). It can cause all of these symptoms. There is a breath test to check for it which any GI doctor should know about, although you have a better chance of knowledge at a teaching hospital.  There's a lot of new research in this area. Here is more information: http://www.siboinfo.com/overview.html The current thought is that many IBS cases are actually SIBO. The treatment requires antibiotics (standard or herbal, both work) and dietary adjustments to reduce fermentable carbs so as not to feed the bacteria.  If it is very advanced, it can take multiple courses of treatment and for some people it seems to be chronic. There is always an underlying cause. Food sensitivities and malfunctioning migrating motor complex are the two big ones. Also structural problems with the intestines that slow motility is another.  There is a high prevelance of SIBO in gluten intolerance. My theory is that it is the neuro toxicity of gluten in susceptible individuals that slows gut transit and sets up a perfect condition for bacterial overgrowth.  But I'm not a doctor  I just have a daughter with chronic SIBO and gluten intolerance that manifests itself in neurological symptoms.   You might want to look into it.  The above website is a treasure trove of information. 
    • 1. My thyroid was tested and is in the normal range.    2. I'm not taking any medication so nothing to interfere with test results.  3.  My endoscopy showed multiple ulcers and that's what the GI chalked up to my very rare ibuprofen use. I use ibuprofen maybe once a month if that.  4.  I'll check into anything to figure out what's wrong     I got my Celiac test back today. It showed no evidence of Celiac disease. So I'm back at the drawing board. I did another stool test today also.   
    • How does that happen!? Congratulations!
