well, some Advils are gluten-free as are some Tylenols. I think I use the extra strength caplets from Tylenol

Thanks celiac3270. I will still be looking for other brands of gluten-free aspirin as Advil and Tylenol are both aspirin free. Your mom probably doesn't give you aspirin as yet because kids under 16 can get deathly ill or it leaves them brain damaged if they use aspirin and have a certain virus. It's called Reye's Syndrome.

Lili; Reyes syndrome is serious. Do not give children aspirin. Go to Mayo Clinic website or Web Md and look Reyes up and it'll probably tell you the full story as to what happens if child has a certain virus (and you probably wouldn't know if the child has that virus or not, so why take the chance) and has aspirin. I know a woman whose child died on her when she gave him aspirin. He was about 15 years old.

I'm afraid I don't take aspirin, just NSAIDs like ibuprofen and naproxyn sodium. Have you checked the www.glutenfreedrugs.com site. (I think that's the url, but am not positive...)

The gluten-free drug site states that Bufferin is gluten-free EXCEPT for the 325 mg size.

I wanted to know if Bayer is gluten-free. I'll have to go to grocery store & get their toll free # before I purchase it.

Hi everyone~

This topic came up at our Celiac support meeting this month and someone mentioned that Members Mark asprin (sams club brand) is gluten free. She said she called the company and they were certain they were gluten-free. You should probably make this phone call for yourself, but this may be an option.

    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some.
