5 posts in this topic

Hi there Guys and Gals,

I got my blood test results back yesterday for the thyrois and what not. Apparently they look good. I am low on Protein, very low, but I am also a little low on Calcium and Iron. But okay to live I suppose. Im low on some other things but ok... My doctor recommend that I find a multivitamin that I can take.

I am allergic to lactose/dairy, soy, eggs, corn, wheat/gluten, nuts, soy, oats......

What is out there that I can have that doesnt have these???

I have looked online at caltrate and that looks like an ok one for Calcium... ANyone taken it? It is ok?

I have here at my house "Womens One-A-Day" multi vitamins.... It does not say anything on it for being gluten-free or what not but here are the ingredients:

Calcium Carbonate, Magnesium, Oide, Ascorbic Acis, Acacia, Ferrous Fumarate, cellulose, dL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate, Corscarmellose Sodium, Zinc Oxide, Dextrin, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Niacinamide, Gelatin, Starch, d-Calcium Pathothenate, Calcium Silicate, Polythylene Glycol, Silicon Dioxide, Dextrose, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Lechtin, Riboflavin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Acetate, Resin, Folic Acid, Beta Carotene, FD&C Yellow #5 Lake, FD&C Yellow #6 Lake, FD&C #2 Blue Lake, Cholecalciferol, Cyanocobalamin

****Soemone was talking saying that Lechtin came from soy..... Im allergic to Soy so does that mean I cant have this?

Oooh Also I have Total HealthMega II Daily which is a "multivitamin with chelated minerals." On it it says "no corn, salt, yeast, wheat, milk, & egg products, sugar, starch or preservatives.

The "other ingredients" of this one are:

Alfalfa, watercress, rosehips, parsley, rice polish, lechtin, preservative free vegetable cellulose

.... Can I have this with my allergies?

Sorry it is sooo long. Id love anyones input though. I need help and I havent been referred to a dietition yet..... Pleease help!

THANKS SOOO MUCH!

Hey Heather, Im new to the gluten-free thing, but I have a supplement that I get from GNC. General Nutrition Center. Their web site is Lame Advertisement ........

I take the Womens Ultra Mega. It's just a daily vitamin. It has no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no preservatives, no sodium, no wheat, no gluten, no soy, no dairy, and no yeast.

If your interested maybe their web site will tell you more. If you want more info on the ingredients I can list them for you.

Hopefully that will help you! :D

Hi there...

it was really sweet of you to inform me of that multi-vitamin at the GNC website..

http://Lame Advertisement/subProductDetails.asp?id=171812

I did a little research and realized that it not one for me. It has soy powder in it... Weird though... in the allergy label it says "No Soy" but right in the ingredients it states "soy powder"... Are they the same thing?

Anyway.. thanks a ton!!!

Hi Heather,

I have some of the same intolerances/allergies that you have. I can't have gluten, dairy, or soy, and possibly yeast. I have to say that I have not had any nutritional deficiency tests, since my doctor won't believe I have celiac disease, but I feel I need extra magnesium and calcium and a multi vitamin probably would not hurt. Well I have never done well on vitamins and finding one that is gluten/dairy/soy free is a bit of a challenge. I settled on Freeda's Children's Chewable Vitalets (Raspberry flavor). I prefer children's vitamins, since I can take one tablet when I need a little boost, but I can take two if I feel I need a big boost. Regular adult vitamins are too harsh on my system,

Freeda's says on the jar:

No Gluten, No Lactose, No Artifical Color, No Artificial Flavor, No Animal Derivatives, No Sugar or Starch, No Gelatin, No Yeast.

The other ingredients are:

Mannitol, sorbitol, cellulose, glycine, calcium stearate, natural flavors, citric acid, silica.

I don't know for sure if any of those contain anything made from your other allergens, but I don't think they do. They taste okay, but not great. You might want to check Freeda's other vitamins. Also Centrum are gluten-free, you could check if they are okay for you. There is a topic on gluten free vitamins and that would probably be a good place to start. Then go through those brands listed as gluten-free and eliminate the ones that contain your allergens. Here is a link to that topic.

And yes lecithin is usually from soy, and soy powder is also (obviously) soy. It was probably a misprint on the "Free of" labeling. Just another reminder that we need to take the gluten-free labeling not as a guarantee, but as a suggestion and still read the ingredients everytime.

God bless,

Mariann :)

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. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc.
