Topic: Gluten Free Medications

Speaker: Catherine Salvagni, Registered Pharmacist



     

Your Gluten Free Medications

Catherine has a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from Albany College of Pharmacy. She is a Registered Pharmacist and has been employed at Wegmans for the past 15 years.

In 1998 Catherine was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and has been the "gluten" expert for Wegman's Pharmacy.

At the Nov. 14th meeting, she addressed the concerns of members about prescription and non-prescription medications. How can we determine that a certain medicine is Gluten Free? Many members brought their drug list to be reviewed.

Catherine provided us with a comprehensive set of web sites where we can do our own review. One is a very useful site - a list a all the drug manufactures, including phone numbers.
