Now for English to correct all my horrible German errors... My name is Emi and I'm going to be studying abroad in Vienna this summer. I'm a college student from the US. I have some questions about living with Celiac's in Vienna. I know my German needs work and isn't great. I studied German in high school for six years but now I'm studying Russian in college. I've forgotten a lot. If you could answer some questions it would be really helpful. Thank you!

Have you googled to see if they have any Celiac support groups that might be of help?  This is the list C.com has.  Not sure if there are any on there that would work.  If you find any, could you Pm me and we can add it to the list for future info seekers.  When you find things this summer,  maybe you could add to this post, too.  Thanks

I will definitely be updating as I learn more about what my options are in Austria. I did find the Celiac's Society there. http://www.zoeliakie.or.at/ I haven't found a "read in English" button for people who don't speak/can't get by in German.

The website appears to be in German only, but there is an e-mail address that they indicate in English that you can send questions to about travel to Austria - Mrs. Petra Pries - tourismus@zoeliakie.or.at

Hello!  I'm a neighbor in Germany originally from the US.

 

Your best bet is to contact them at the email address provided for information in English. Things are a little different in Austria than in Germany, but you might also get some help from the DZG in English. http://dzg-online.de/  -- they've been very helpful to us these last six years.

 

I've heard that Vienna is quite advanced and knowledgeable about Celiac issues, through the magazine that the DZG puts out. They occasionally will highlight areas you can vacation at and Vienna is one that pops up quite a lot.

 

You will likely find a lot of gluten free food options (prepared foods) at some of your supermarkets in the freezer section and a specialty food section all together. Ours is located in the Asian/Mexican aisle in one store, and near the diabetic and babyfood in another supermarket.  You may also find options at the Reformhaus and if there's a similar store to DrogerieMarkt (or even that chain) in Austria, you may find it there as well.  They have a nice selection in our area in Germany. . . lots of bread, cereal, breakfast bars, cookies and  packed items you can bake.

 

 

Hope that helps!

Due to lots of celtic blood, they have a lot of celiac in Austria. They often know more about celiac than over in Germany.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
