I am a retired Doctor of Optometry after practicing for 20 years. I have monoclonal gammopathy (paraproteinemia), limited systemic scleroderma, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, obstructive sleep apnea, beginning neuropathy, and have just been found to have the celiac HLA type: DQ8.
But, you know what? Now that I've been gluten-free for 2 years, I pretty much know what's gluten free and what's not at my grocery store. And what I would REALLY like is for the people at Triumph Dining to convert their wonderful "Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide" to an iPod application. I have had that book for 2 years, and I STILL refer to it any time I want to eat out! And it is especially useful when traveling! The few iPod applications currently at iTunes for gluten-free restaurant dining have only a small fraction of the restaurant locations that are in Triumph's book. So I wrote to the people at Triumph Dining asking if/when they plan to convert that one to an iPod/iPhone application.
What they replied was that they certainly will consider it if they get more people writing in requesting it. So here's what I suggest. If you have an iPod or iPhone, and want the Triumph Gluten-Free Restaurant Guide handily available on your nifty device, then write to the kind folks at Triumph Dining and tell them you want such an app. The link to their email is:
