    My doctor recommended dpp-iv enzyme for the occasion when I accidentally ingest gluten. Since it does happen on occasion especially with so many items having wheat. Especially when eating out. She also said it isn’t a cure nor does it give me the ability to eat gluten, it merely helps reduce reaction if there is accidental ingestion of gluten. She mentioned I should take it whenever I eat out. Sometimes there is wheat or gluten where you don’t expect. Such as mcdonald’s french fries have wheat. Not all restaurants have a gluten free selection and they don’t always know if something has gluten or believe it is free of it, but it isn’t. Then you have where I recently didn’t pay attention at IHOP and ordered an omelet. I assumed omelet was safe and wasn’t til later when I was trying to figure out why I was having reactions as if I had gluten that I found out that IHOP omelets use pancake batter to make them more fluffy.

    So no it isn’t a cure by any means but it helps assist on the accidental ingestion. It shouldn’t be used as a means to allow you to eat gluten. It should be used to help in the case of accidental ingestion. As another reviewer stated while you may stave off obvious reactions, the gluten can still damage the villi in your intestine and cause harm.

    I haven’t been able to eat gluten for over a year. My abdomin would swell and I would get really sick. This product has changed all of that. I’m now able to eat food with gluten (in moderation of course!) I would highly recommend! I can’t guarentee that it will work for everyone, but I’m certainly excited that it works for me right now!

    I used a different brand of this pill before and I believe it worked but never had the guts to test it out for sure. I have celiac disease and have been living with it for 10 years now. I do not eat at places where I might get sick since I am very sensitive to gluten. I usually take these pills when traveling or in a situation that I am not sure 100% that what I am eating is gluten free. So far so good but I was always wondering if I was lucky or if the pills really worked. This past weekend I went to a BBQ and watched an old man wearing plastic gloves use the same gloves he used to hand out regular hot dog buns to open up, reach in and pull out a gluten free bun. I knew for a fact that the bun had been contaminated with gluten. Since I didn’t have anything better to do the next day I decided to finally put the pills to the test and ate the hotdog with “gluten free” bun. I took two of these pills right before I started eating the hot dog and I did not have ANY issues. I am very happy to know that these work and that I wasn’t just “getting lucky” all those times I had taken them before. If you have Celiac disease I can’t recommend these enough to have on hand.
