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.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      My first thought was how many people that have been labeled as mentally ill or psychotic actually have Celiac Disease and never get diagnosed?  Their whole lives spent battling these conditions, being flooded with various meds and no one looks at their diet or does other testing!  It really is tragic.  I always wondered whether Patty Duke was an un-diagnosed Celiac.  She was finally diagnosed with bi-polar and ended up dying of a perforated intestine, at the young age of 69.  Ya gotta wonder........

      I think the company knows what the ingredients are better than us.  If you mean Amaretto, I have had it.  
    • Gluten free before biopsy???
      My doctor required me to continue eating gluten before the endoscopy for biopsy. She did say I could let up "a little" to ease some of the terrible pain I was having, but wanted me to eat gluten-containing foods every day until the biopsy. As it turned out, they were able to get me in quickly, so it was really only a few days for me. Both bloodwork and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis and now I am happily gluten-free! It has been a challenge, but having a gluten-free kitchen, checking labels on foods and being super-careful when going out has worked wonders. I am not 100% recovered yet, but getting energy back a bit at a time as my nutrition status improves. We don't eat out much - mostly at vegan places that declare they are gluten-free (although I still eat chicken, eggs, milk, and beef sometimes at home). One day, I'll go somewhere else - but not without checking first! Best of luck to you. I think it important to always double-check with the doctor when there are any questions at all. My doctor welcomes questions and I hope yours will too.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Thanks for posting I was just looking at this a short time ago. Something I found interesting was the last line of the article- " The psychosis that the woman experienced was an extreme condition and very unique, Fasano said. " While not common I am not sure that it is that unique.  There is a fair amount of research that has been done on the effects of gluten on the brains and nervous systems of celiacs.  Doing a search with the words neurological and celiac at places like Lancet, PubMed and the NIH can bring up some really interesting studies. Thankfully this impact is slowly becoming more common knowledge in the medical circles. Many of us have experienced in our families or first hand the way that the antibodies can impact our mood and thinking. It does seem miraculous when the clouds finally lift. I wish more doctors would test for celiac before pulling out the prescription pad, especially with kids.
    • Desperately Seeking DISARONNO!
      If you are referring to Amaretto Disaronno, then I can tell you that I have had it a couple of times since being diagnosed in 2005 and never had a problem with it. I am very sensitive too and react strongly to cc.  I do not drink much variety in the way of alcohol but red wine and this seem to be perfectly fine!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
