I am just less than a month gluten-free after positive BW and scope/biopsies. I am looking for a multivitamin that is for sure Gluten free and am having troubles finding one! I know brands are different between US and Canada, so just to let you know I am in Canada. I found one that said Wheat Free but not Gluten free, so I don't feel comfortable with that. Others just don't say anything! The ingredients look ok, but I don't know what half of the stuff is, and I can't find one that says clearly Gluten Free. Jamieson Brand has many single vitamins and supplements that are labeled as Gluten Free but I couldn't find a multi vitamin.

What do you take?

Ive been looking for a multivitamin in Canada too. I found this.. http://well.ca/products/now-foods-ecogreen-multi-vitamin_18864.html it has Wheat Grass and Barley Grass but I read Pure wheat grass and barley grass (just the grass, with absolutely no seeds) do not contain gluten. Im pretty new at all of this too so I dont know about all the other stuff in it.

EDIT: I emailed NOW Foods and they confirmed that these are not gluten free.

I take One-A-Day.

I believe the Canadian version actually says gluten-free (it's been awhile since I did my homework on it, though.)

When I called the company they said that while all the ingredients were gluten-free, they couldn't promise that there was no CC of the ingredients before they got to them. Pretty much, they don't do gluten testing.

I took it as a legal CYA statement and I've taken them without problem.

If you have Wal-Greens stores there, some of their brand of multi-vitamins are labeled as gluten-free.

I used to take Costco's brand "Kirkland", it's actually a pretty complete formula and very cost effecitve - even says gluten free on the bottle.

Right now my naturopath has me on something stronger, a powder form multivitamin called AOR Essential Mix, Blackberry Flavour. This should be available in any vitamin or good health food store. When I went on it I called the company and they confirmed its gluten-free. I'm not gonna lie, it tastes pretty bad. I'm seriously thinking about going back to the Kirkland vitamins.

I read so many reviews with people saying One-A-Day makes you nauseous about half hour after you take them.

I'll agree with this, but I don't think it's celiac-related.

I've found that just about any large rough-type (I don't know a better way to describe the outside of it) vitamin I take makes me nauseous right after I take it. Eating something small with it definitely helps.

This has always been the case for me, though, for every type I can remember. Pre-natals like this years ago made me feel the same way.

I switched to gummy vitamins (several brands are labeled gluten-free) because most standard vitamins also made me nauseated afterwards - not glutened, and I don't suspect any gluten cc at all, just nauseated - perhaps something about the coating and my system. It has worked well because I also take omega 3 gummy vitamins which taste bad but if I chew the multi vitamins at the same time as the omega 3 vitamins they are tolerable.

    • Hi,  My 24 year old daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease just about 4 years ago. She began having a hard time swallowing food and experiencing lots of acid so she had an Endoscopy last year and was positive for EoE. She had another allergy test done just after and found out she is also allergic to yeast. So we add that to her list of things she can’t eat along with shrimp and sesame seeds. We found a great allergist since she has asthma and horrible sinus allergies who was able to work with her GI doctor. Together they have her on a few different medications that seem to be really helping. She still has some dairy, like cheese on her tacos, but not much and stays away from yeast almost entirely. Just a side note for us girls, she had a lot of discharge and every Gynecologist said that it’s ‘normal’ and not to worry but as soon as she cut yeast out of her diet it has become a none issue. So being a Celiac definitely intertwines with other health issues. Keeping a food diary will be a big help in pin pointing what triggers your EoE.  Once you get a final diagnosis there are wonderful people on this forum to help guide you through this wonderful journey of living with Celiac Disease.   Good luck ☺️
    • Hello and welcome You've found a good site for advice and support.  Google suggests there is a link between EoE and Celiac, but at the moment that seems to be as much as anyone knows: https://www.emaxhealth.com/12410/celiac-disease-increases-risk-eosinophilic-esophagitis https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-96 Although it's not true that having one means you have the other.  You may want to read this thread for the experiences and ideas of others here who have experienced Burning Mouth Syndrome: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/106704-burning-sensation-in-mouth/ There were lots more gluten and BMS articles, so if a direct link hasn't been made, there's food for thought there along with some interesting thoughts on B and Iron deficiencies and possible additional food intolerances. No please don't. If the biopsy is inconclusive they may want a second one or further blood tests (you don't mention if they already did these?). Once you eliminate gluten from your diet these tests are inaccurate. That's not to say you shouldn't trial the diet, just make sure with your doctor you only do so once tests are complete. I'd add that even if you test negative you have nothing to lose from trialling a gluten free diet and as someone who did test negative I highly recommend you do, but only once testing is done! In the meantime, start a food diary. Log what you eat, when, and how you feel. Just short notes but make it a habit and try to capture everything you put in your mouth.  Build a record that you can use to find patterns. Maybe a trigger for the BMS will become apparent over time. Best of luck    
    • Funny you should ask about Lectins because I am currently recovering from a recent run in with some pinto beans.  After reading soaking longer than overnight helps break down those Lectins, I soaked them for twenty-four hours  Then I cooked the spots off them!  And still, they have wreaked havoc in my tummy.  Ugh!   So while recuperating, I did some research.  While cooking can break down some of the lectins, the only way to get rid of them completely is to cook them in a pressure cooker.  I was surprised to find that Lectins are histamine releasers!  Lectins make Mast cells release all their histamine.  Aha!   The red wine and balsamic vinegars and the bottled lemon juice are all high in Sulfites.  Sulfites are histamine releasers, too.  Apple cider vinegar is lower in Sulfites.   Lectins stimulate the autoimmune system: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25599185 More on Lectins and autoimmune diseases: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1115436/ And for Enis' affinity for chocolate nibs...(as well as my own)... Chocolate is a source of copper.  Copper deficiency causes neuropathy.   My neuropathy has gotten worse recently and my chocolate cravings have increased.  Hmmmm...... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 More info on copper http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/minerals/copper So...I'm wondering if I've neglected taking copper along with my calcium and magnesium.  I'm starting supplementing this week. Is copper in any of your protein powders, Enis?   I hope this helps.
    • I have neuropathy. Mine is worse with cold. My hands and toes get so bad I cry. I don't know what to do to make it better but just wanted you to know you aren't alone. I hate feeling alone with this disease.
    • Just recently found this article about a woman suffering from neuropathy which was caused by copper deficiency caused by Celiac Disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 Copper deficiency myeloneuropathy due to occult celiac disease. "...the authors suggest that some cases of ataxia associated with celiac disease are likely due to copper deficiency myeloneuropathy."
