WHY NO NSAIDs FOR YOU
If you have an autoimmune disease and/or gastrointestinal issues, strongly consider not taking NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) for pain relief or as an anti-inflammatory medicine, and discuss with your doctor other options for pain or inflammation treatment.
Yes, that’s you, even the one who is saying, “But I don’t have Celiac Disease,” but you do have GI “issues”.
I cannot tell you how many times medical providers over the years have attempted to prescribe me a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, also referred to as an NSAID, and then stare blankly when I remind the physician I have Celiac Disease.
*insert the sound of crickets*
Perhaps you too have wondered about this. The medication itself does not contain gluten in it; therefore, it is safe for people with Celiac Disease and Autoimmune Disease, right?
