I was rereading an old Gluten Free Living magazine before sending it to my sister and noticed an ad that might interest you for gf and hypoallergenic personal care products: www.gfsoap.com . I feel for you.
As for the meds I take: after diagnosis I insisted on getting a dexa scan for bone density to use as a baseline. My vit B12 and Vit D were checked (I wish all fat soluble vitamins had been checked) and my D was low. The doc gave me an Rx for 50,000 iu of Vit D, which is normally taken 1x/day for 8 days, then 1x/mo for a year. Plus he had me take Posture D 3x/day and calcium citrate 1x/day. I think that + daily sunshine helped me recover from depression.
Other than that I take Synthroid for my thyroid, and a bunch of supplements: a multi, B12 (cause I'm still low after a year), iron (still low), extra vit C, probiotic, sometimes taurine, CoQ10. I'm just doing this on my own (except for the iron, which I'm seeing a hematologist for), and plan to see a naturopath in a week or so.
