Did you know that some probiotics contain gluten? Because celiac disease centers are concerned about gluten being labeled in over- the-counter drugs as well as prescription medications, Ohio Representative Tim Ryan (District 13) and
Nita Lowey (New York, District 17) introduced House Resolution HR3648, which requires that gluten be easily identified in pharmaceutical products.
The Celiac Disease Foundation has made it easy for you to support this Bill and have your voice heard. They have a sample “cut and paste” patient letter that can be sent to your representative. Go to and simply identify your representative by zip code to send an email. You can also write the content yourself. Either way, let Congress know we want medications labeled if they contain gluten so our medications help–not hurt– celiac patients!
