    I am DQ2 Homozygous, 13 year old daughter and 7 year old son with Celiac and 4 year old son with the gene but Celiac not activated yet. I love the outdoors and being active. I'm determined to show my kids that you can still live life with Celiac, just have to plan ahead....

  1. Eucerin lotion has gluten in it. She needs to use products that are gluten free. You have to think how many times a day a kid will touch their lips or pick something up to eat. If that body product has gluten in it, she will end up ingesting it somehow. Same thing applies with lipgloss/lip balm...
  2. My kids and I use Everyone Lotion. It's Certified Gluten Free. I've been able to find it at my local Wal Mart and have ordered it from the site below. I second what Ennis said about calling/emailing the manufacturers. Also, Gabriel Cosmetics and ZuZu Luxe have certified products. My daughter...
  3. Both sets are made on shared lines. That was the point of my response. Many people have gotten sick from Gluten free products from Frito Lay.
  4. I understand the link. I’ve gotten sick from Frito products that are labeled gluten free. I called and spoke with them on their processes, they “clean” the lines. I won’t buy products that are ran on shared lines/“cleaned”. It’s not worth it.
  5. The issue with Frito is they use the same lines with gluten containing products. Even though they clean them there is still a chance in cross contamination.
  6. I had edited my comment earlier to show that I was talking about regular Rice Krispies. My eyes skipped over the "BROWN" in the post.
  7. Regular Rice Krispies in the US and Canada are not gluten free. They contain Barley Malt. See the below ingredients of the Rice Krispies in Canada... Ingredients: Rice, sugar, salt, corn and barley malt extract, Vitamins and minerals: iron, niacinamide, thiamine hydrochloride, cholecalciferol...
  8. We use Schar Artisan Baker Multigrain Bread in our house. My kids say this one doesn't choke them, haha... The ingredients are listed below for those that might have additional intolerances. Ingredients: water , rice starch , sourdough (water, rice, flour) , corn starch...
  9. I am Catholic and only receive wine, the blood of Christ. Our priest makes sure that my kids and I are the first ones to receive communion from the chalice. The wafer is considered low gluten.
  10. My 13 and 7 year old have Celiac Disease and my 4 year old has the genes. I have a double dose of the genes so no matter what my children will get a gene that could develop into the disease. I hope that my youngest son doesn't ever develop the disease, but his dr said it could activate later in...
  11. My 7 year old son has this happen. I too get highly angry, like could flip a vehicle kind of angry. It's hard for the little ones to understand what is going on at the time, only knowing that they can't control themselves.... The glazed crazy look in his eye are always a tell. Sleep helps, along...
  12. Awesome! I've given up coffee since my husband contaminated our Keurig. I'm going to have to go out and buy my own old school coffee pot so I can try these out. I'm super excited.
  13. Companies get so sneaky with labeling. I stick with the companies that are dedicated gluten free if I am buying processed foods. Most will have a website with a section under Frequent Q&A's. If they don't, email or call to get clarification as to how the item is processed. I know that my...
  14. I get it on the back of my right leg and right elbow. I have no idea why it's just limited to the right side of my body. My family care doctor prescribed me a steroid and steroid cream. The oral steroid has only made me grouchy and fat! I'm probably going to stop taking it since it hasn't helped...
