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.

    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
    • You should never have cut out gluten until you had the biopsy done. It's much worse to have to go back on after you've been off gluten for a while. There's no way I could ever do the gluten challenge after being off gluten for even a month because my reactions got so dramatically worse.  Stress definately can trigger celiac- before I was diagnosed - it got the worst after surgery and after a stressful time planning my daughters wedding. 
    • Hi not diagnosed celiac, Welcome to the forum! Your doctor should be sent to remedial celiac disease training.  Since that probably won't happen, I suggest you find a new doctor.  He doesn't know what he's doing when it comes to diagnosing celiac disease. You should not have gone gluten-free before completing all celiac disease testing.  The testing for celiac disease depends on the immune reaction being active.  Removing gluten before testing removes the antigen that causes the immune system to react, and lowers the chances of getting a correct test result dramatically.  The University of Chicago celiac disease center recommends: ******************************************** http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ Prior to blood testing we recommend 12 weeks of eating gluten. Prior to an endoscopic biopsy we recommend 2 weeks of eating gluten. In the case of a severe reaction to gluten, a medical professional may opt to shorten the 12-week challenge and move immediately to an endoscopic biopsy. May, 2013 ******************************************** So you will need to go back to eating gluten before your endoscopy.  That may cause worse symptoms than before when you were eating gluten.  So it would have been better to do all testing before going gluten-free. Can you search for a celiac disease support group in your area?  They exist in many parts of the USA and world.  They can be a good place to get a knowledgeable doctor recommendation.  There is also a doctors subsection of this forum where you can search to see if any doctors in your area were recommended.
    • Hi All, I'm new to this and very confused! I have Lea & Perrins WC sauce, it lists it's first ingredient as Malt Vinegar.  I have the Coeliac Society of Ireland Food List 2015 here, and it says "All Vinegars are Gluten Free including Malt Vinegar." Doesn't that mean that L&P Worcestershire sauce is safe?   Their website states " Lea & Perrins® Worcestershire Sauce is cholesterol free, fat free, preservative free, gluten free and has 80% less sodium than soy sauce. " I'm cooking for my coeliac niece, can't afford to make a mistake!
