This can be a rather stressful time, not
only for the patient but for the carer,
as once again you may be forced to do
the shopping and the cooking!!
Also you might have to play nurse too. Just be aware in giving out medication that may contain gluten. If you have to quickly go to a pharmacist and get a script filled, on behalf of your celiac friend, check on the back of the packet (and ask the Pharmacist) to ensure that it does not contain anything that is not gluten free. Some of the cheaper generic medications are made with wheat starch as fillers.
