I have celiac disease & I'm on a strict 100% gluten free diet. I take Propranolol 20mg tabs & Levothyroxine 137mcg tabs daily. Do these contain Gluten?
Real disease: Maybe 1% of people have autoantibodies against gut and/or skin that are produced in response to gluten in the diet. These people's illnesses, which are severe, vanish on removal of gluten. This has persuaded others that restriction will do the same for them. They may be right; we await hard science on this. It's become a "pop" restricted diet. Be discerning if you try without a physician's input. ...Read more

Probably not: Nobody knows what percentage of people are gluten-sensitive (celiac sprue / dermatitis herpetiformis). Because these people respond so dramatically to a gluten-free diet, and because any claim will attract believers, a gluten-free diet is now being promoted for everything.

My roommate keeps on snacking. She's eating lots of vegetables but gives up eating rice. How can I help her to practise a healthy diet? She's 19.
Here's an idea: I'm glad you care. Nobody likes to be told what to do, especially when you're almost grown up. Actually, i'm glad she's doing vegetables -- many folks don't. Rice isn't essential and neither is the traditional 3 meals per day. If she's becoming obese she probably would like a good model. The best you can do is invite her to eat out with you and offer her / suggest healthy stuff. ...Read more
