Howdy.

I am going to be in Washington DC next weekend (16th-20th) and would love it if someone could give me a little direction :)

Is anyone from there, or know of any celiac organizations in DC?

Thanks!!

Thank you so much :) Any info is good info ;) We'll be staying right in DC, did you say there's a Whole Foods *in* DC?

I have lots of food allergies - but gluten-free menu restaurants are the best about it (in my experience) because they actually pay attention to details. So I really appreciate knowing what gluten-free menu places they might have there.

Thanks again :)

Michelle-

This info is from a friend in DC

First-Here is a link that has some places from the Celiac group in the area. You'll have to look to see which ones are actually in DC as opposed to NoVa or MD. http://www.dcceliacs.com/dcceliacs/WACSSG_...restaurants.pdf

And, to supplement it, here is what she added based on looking at the list:

"I'm looking at the list and I've been to a few so here are my two cents if she wants:

Legal Seafoods - obviously you and i know it's AMAZING there - if she's got the money for it!

The Baja Fresh is pretty good - there are a few in town - kinda cali-mex fast food - not greasy - pretty good

Outback and PF Changs is always good, but I don't know if they are in the city...

Ruth's Chris Steakhouse - good but pricey

Chipotle - good for lunch, good price - big burrittos!

Red Sage - nice restaurant downtown near my office - sorta cali-mex food

Don Pablo's - I know there's one in the Potomac Yards strip mall, but you have to drive there - okay food - kinda has a TGIF feel but mexican

Chicken Out - There's one in the Ballston Mall - pretty good

Clyde's - nice restaurant - I know there's one in Georgetown and a new one in Chinatown - medium priced, nice atmosphere, lots of businesspeople go there

McCormick & Schmick's - the list says it's only in Reston but there's one downtown - again another business-type lunch place but good food and okay priced

I think that's it - I'm sure she'll find lots of options in the city and there are Whole Foods all over the place.

Thank you so so so much!! :wub: Fabulous information - all of it will help me a lot! :)

Sorry that it's taken me so long to get back to you - I'm in the midst of finals & trying to study/take tests/etc. But I am very grateful for your searching :)

p.s. Tell your friend thanks too! :)

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
