Thanks, I had heard that before about the brand. I'm currently using a generic of Centrum, but of course the no-gluten aspect may not have made it through the generic equivalent process.

Thanks for the replies. I went to Target & looked at their house brand, none of the multivitamins I saw (Up & Up, etc) were clearly marked "Gluten Free". So I stopped at a Rite Aid on the way home & picked up a couple bottles of "Nature Made Multi", which is labeled "No yeast or Gluten". Plus, they were buy one, get one free, which is always nice :D

I know that Costco in Canada has a pre-natal vitamin that is gluten free, and it is under $5. I take it even though I'm not pregnant!

Hi, Molly -

You might want to double check on the Centrum vitamins. I started taking them when I was first diagnosed 2 years ago because their website said gluten-free. Unfortunately it was the Canadian site. When I called them they said only the ones sold in Canada are guaranteed gluten-free. They might have changed that since then, but just wanted to give you a heads up.

The UP&UP men's one a day says gluten free right after the ingredients list.

All of this info is helpfull..... my gi dr. told me to find a good mutli vitamin with mainly five ingredients are the most important ones which are vitamin D, iron, selenium, copper and magnesium... she also said that prenatal may be better than reg even if you're not pregnant bc they have higher levels. i know i can not take womens one a day as they make me feel terrible and this both times i tried to take them before i had my gi biopsy and before i knew what was wrong with me. so now im kind of afraid to take them in fear of feeling crummy. anyone have an opinion on what makes them feel the best and if i should go with the prenatal rather than a regular kind? i just want to not feel weak and afraid to excercise again. i also may need to say i have type one diabetes and anemic so any help for a newly diagnosed would be awesome im still learning ..... thanks :)

    • In addition to checking  products for gluten-free issues, the particular vitamin that supports hair and nails is called biotin. It is included in most multivitamin s, multi b complex vitamins, but if some people do get enough from diet they may need to add a single biotin supplement. B vitamins are  water soluble so they are not stored by the body. When I get glutened and cc I lose hair, after my  challenge my hair suffered for quite sometime vs my gluten-free years. It takes times the cells are competing for limited nutrients in the commonly malabsorped nutrient celiac body. Good luck
    • Hi Jenny. How long have you been gluten free? Have you potentially come across CC ate away from home, a processed  food that is new to you?  I get neuropathy issues among many other issues. For me it is my left upper arm goes numb aka falls asleep like sensation and my big toes both feet. Typically this is when I am actively consuming gluten before  went gluten-free and at/after my challenge. As gluten-free if I get cc by gluten I go numb , if  get cc by corn another intolerance I get shooting nerve firing. So yes celiac and food intolerance s can cause this in some people. It is best to stick to whole foods for now and keep a food diary to suss out any gluten cc or other intolerance. Edit - also check vitamin b12, other b' s and magnesium also are important. Do you get enough? B vitamins are water soluble so if you have absorption issues and don't consume enough and they are depleted this also should be on your radar. Sublingual b12 maybe necessary so t enters the blood stream vs. Pill /gi route. Lastly some require b12 shots if the prior options do not work.
    • Hi guys. It's me Jenny 😊I feel like I post every other day with problems or questions. Well I'm here again. I have this problem with my left leg (in particular) at night going numb it wakes me up in the middle of me sleeping and is difficult to fall back to sleep. It's not my bed mattress, it's not the location on how I sleep. I don't know what it is. It only happens at night. The neurologist said I was sleeping on my spine wrong because I sometimes end up on my back wrong! Happens just as much on my side. Don't know if this is celiacs related damage or something else my quality of sleep sucks! Any one experience this? Also I have a mysterious pain that started in my neck atleast 2 years ago got use to it but over the summer I noticed there was pain (unbearable) on the shoulder generating down to the wrist on one side. Any one know what this could be. My doctor diagnosed arthrits but I'm only 30
    • I have been gluten free for about 7 months. I had a check with my gastroenterologist at 4 months post endoscopy, and asked him to check my thyroid, iron, vit D and Vitamin B12 levels. They told me all were fine (which I found surprising, but I take vitamins). Shortly after that, my hair started to fall out like crazy. At first I thought it might be due to an accidental glutening in mid Sept, but it is still falling out. I finally did a hair count after yesterdays shower - 919 strands!  Thank goodness I (had) thick hair, but its getting noticeable. Coincidentally, yesterday I noticed bruising on my arms & don't remember hitting anything, but I remember getting bumped by someone. Could my iron change that fast? I'm looking for answers. Yes I use gluten free shampoo & product, but I dont know if my hairdressers shampoo is gluten-free. I only go there once a month though. Any ideas would be much appreciated! 
    • Just wanted to revive this thread with an update. My daughter's appetite/calorie intake is slightly better these days, especially in the morning--though overall I'd say that she usually still has to eat deliberately rather than out of true hunger. The main problem is that she still feels terrible most evenings. She often can barely tolerate dinner some nights (we don't force it, and she eats enough at breakfast/lunch/snack that she can do without major evening calories). She describes it as a general malaise, "like when you have a fever and you feel a little nauseous and bad all over, not really hurting in one specific place." No diarrhea, cramping, or other specific GI symptoms. It seems much more related to time of day than to anything in particular that she's eating. She's still eating no oats. She has a relatively low-lactose diet--a little milk in her morning smoothie (that doesn't seem to affect her at all), doesn't like yogurt, occasional hard cheese that would be low in lactose already. Her diet doesn't vary a lot right now. She uses ginger chews and ginger tea. We're exploring probiotics and did take them a few times, but her celiac specialist warned that some probiotics are grown on a gluten-containing medium and we are awaiting a list of approved probiotics from her nurse.  We are aware that there is probably an anxiety component--she's definitely anxious--but we also don't want to discount her symptoms after all those years of thinking she had a "nervous tummy" when it was really celiac. Does anyone have other insights or suggestions to help with evenings? thanks!
