I was going to go (we live in Columbus) and Mary Kay Sharett is DS's dietician, but that is our 6th wedding anniversary! I really wanted DS to go too and meet some other kids his age that go through what he does.

Is this a conference put on by Childrens Hospital? How can I find out the progam agenda? I am an adult onset/diagnosis and not interested in learning about childhood issues.

Thanks for the link. I will check it out. I live Northwest of Columbus in Bellefontaine so I wouldn't be a difficult trip.

Hey -- I live in Louisville, KY AND the Eddie Bauer outlet (the real one, not like the ones in the outlet malls!) is there, isn't it?????? MY DH wants to take a visit there, so perhaps he would enjoy hearing much, much more about this disease which has us eating strangely :lol::lol:

Hi Lynne

sorry I can't help you out with the Eddie Bauer store but the conference is a nice one.I buy alot of food to bring home when I go.

So please come, you meet alot of people and for me I get to buy stuff I can't get near me...I think it is well worth the $30.00. That includes educational materials,lunch & snacks .

Hope you can make it.....

You actually get to purchase gluten-free products there? That would be GREAT! Even though we have a very competitive health-food store market here, they don't carry some of the really GOOD things . . . mamaw, it would be so nice to be able to purchase foods that we can't get here, either. Can you tell me more???

Wont it be nice to go to a conference where you do not have to make special arrangements for the lunch/snack portion of the meeting! I might just go for that luxury again.

Yes at the Columbus Conference you can buy directly from the vendors & also alot of them have sampling too. There are a couple of foods in with the info packet also..

exhibitors are:

1-2-3 gluten-free

cali fine foods

celiac specialities ( Home of the yummy glazed donuts)

ener_G

enjoy life foods

gifts of nature

gluten evolution(Anna's bread mix)

gluten-free mall

gluten-free passport

food- tek (micro fodds)

gluten-free trading co

heartland

Kathy's creations ( she has the best peanut butter bars)

maple grove

raisin rack( wondeful store)

sterk's bakery

So that is who will be there selling & sampling. I spent about $300.00 last year. I take a small freezer with me so I can keep the stuff I buy safe . I also make a trip to the Raisin Rack to stock up on other things too.

It is a nice event.My husband is the driver not gluten-free but he like the event too. My daughter is coming also ( her birthday the day of the cenference ) so we have a great time. It does seem to fil up fast so if you are planning on coming register before (9-22-06 for the $5.00 discount....

I think it is well worth the $30.00 , you get lunch & snacks..........

I hope you all can make it. I would love to meet up , maybe the same hotel? I am friends with Anna so I think we will try to meet at the same hotel........

keep me posted

Hello!

I live in Columbus and would also really love to hear about the local eateries! Been here 4 years and my biggest complaint is that there is very little in the way of good food!

I've heard of the Raisin Rack but never been. Is their gluten-free section any better than Wild oats or Whole Foods?

I'm going to do the best I can to save up money for all the good shopping! I can see my husband's eyes rolling as I type this! LOL

As far as I know, there isn't any Eddie Bauer outlet, but Columbus is headquarters for all of Les Wexners stores. (ie Gap, Banana Republic, Limited, Victoria Secret) All of those headquarters have local wharehouses that occassionally have employee sales, but I've not heard of a public outlet.

The Eddie Bauer outlet is on the west side of Columbus - I go 2x per year! It is off of Fisher Rd. and 270. Try mapquest for specifics.

For you who know columbus well, where is a good place to stay & be safe too. Last year we stayed at the doubletree on Front st( I think). We were not happy with that place.Is Front St a main drag? I knoe after we left we went in the opposite direction a few blocks & seen another hotel chain tha tlooked better---of course none of us remember the name. Before we stayed on the outskirts of columbus.

also what is the German Village?

Any input will be greatly appreciated. I think there might be a fairfield inn around close????? I don't wan tto pay $200 or $300 bucks for a one night stay cause all we do is shower & sleep, on the run most of the time. Anything under $ 150.00 I would consider. plus the more I must pay for the room the less I can spend on goodies.....

Lindalee,

I just posted the vendors afew hours ago but it you can't find it pm me. would love to see you .....If you also go to Children's Hospital Columbus, ohio all the details will come up. It does fill up quickly.......

Front St is in the Brewery district, lots of bars. German Village is an interesting place, near the hospital. It has million dollar renovated mansions along with really trashy places that haven't been renovated yet. Overall it is a really neat place that is currently a hot spot as it gets cleaned up. I would reccomend that you look a little further north on High St. to the Hilton or the Hampton Inn, but I don't know their rates. Another way to save money would be to stay in a suburb like Pickerington, which has a few hotels right on the freeway and is only 10-15 minutes away.

I shop at the Raisin Rack at least once per week and they have a wonderful selection of gluten-free products. They are off of Schrock Rd. in Westerville. They will be moving to a larger location across the street in November. :) Oh, you can also order online at their website and then just go in and pick up your order....very nice!!!! :)

odcdinah: I was just talking to my DH on the telephone, told him about your post with regard to the Eddie Bauer outlet!! We were howling laughing! :lol::lol:

We have decided that we're coming up Friday, Nov. 3 in order to hit the Eddie Bauer place -- that way we won't want to ditch the conference early when we really need to be there! Sounds like it is really going to be a good conference. Am looking forward to finding new foods, as well. Getting kind of tired of Peanut Butter Panda Puffs . . . .

Hey Chris . . . help me out here! PM or e-mail me as to where we should stay, where we should eat, etc. You are HIGHLY informed with regard to things of that nature (I know, I've eaten with you -- you speak with the entire staff, including the head chef -- how many people actually get to do that???) Wish you were going to be in Columbus then . . . would love to have dinner with you again.

So, guys, looks like it's a "go" for me and my DH! Will see you there!

Lynne

mamaw: Thanks for the heads up about the freezer . . . . we're going to take a large cooler & dry ice packets. Didn't realize that there would be so many goodies to purchase. Thank you, too, for telling me about how much you spent last year . . . . that way we'll know to budget that into our trip. It's gonna be FUN!!

Cameron Mitchell is a legend in Columbus. He has some of the best restaurants with some of the best food. Check out his website. I know that the Columbus Fish Market and The Ocean Club both have gluten free options. I used to work at the Columbus Fish Market and I ate there like everyday for a year - gotta love the employee discount.

At the Fish Market, you can pick out your fish and have it prepared grilled, steamed, sauteed or even baked. They also have live lobsters and wonderful mashed potatoes and freshly steamed veggies. If you go to the one on Olentangy River Rd., they have more experience with Celiac as I worked at that one (its the one by OSU and Downtown).

The Executive Chef at The Ocean Club in Easton was my old chef at the Fish Market. His name is Jared and he has a couple of dishes on the meny meant for Celiacs ( I think one is a potato crusted halibut with garlic potatoes and greenbeans - I think). Anyway, If you like seafood, go there.

For Burgers, go to Thurman's in the German Village - the place has been there for 50 years and they are the King of the Burger. You can't have the fries and you need to bring your own bread, but it is so good, you can knife and fork it.

For Breakfast go to First Watch - there are a couple around town and the owner's daughter has Celiac Disease so they have lots of gluten-free stuff on the menu. Also, Cap City Diner has a yummy Sunday Brunch (Cameron Mitchell restaurant) -

Vegetarian and Eclectic Eating - Aladdin's Eatery on High Street in Clintonville -- fresh, whole foods and the ingredients are readily available - their stuffed grape leaves are wonderful!

For Steaks, I like Mitchell's Steakhouse (Cemeron Mitchell place), Hyde Park Steakhouse and G'Michaels (all are downtown C-bus).

For any of the Cameron Mitchell restaurants, as long as you call ahead and tell them you have gluten intolerance, they will accomodate you -- Cameron is known for his excellent service and they have always taken care of my Celiac friends.

In addition, many places in Grandview have been accomodating. Sho-ku (sp?) is a nice sushi place in Grandview and the Grandview Cafe has a nice mneu as well.

While you are in Columbus, DO NOT FORGET to try Graeter's Ice Cream - YUMMY YUMMY

Bronco

p.s. There is a Whole Foods in Columbus. Some places sell Bards and New Grist Gluten Free Beer there as well.

As far as lodging is concerned, I like the Hyatt downtown (in the middle of the arena district and walking distance to some places). For the more frugal traveler, the Baymont Inn or the Cross Country Inn on Olentangy River Rd is nice (and down the street from The Fish Market and Cap City Diner)

Armetta,

At the Columbus Fish Market, they have drinks called "Pine-Fins"...Basically they take a big glass jug, cut up a ton of pineapples and then pour in Finlandia Vodka. They let it sit for 24-48 hours and then serve it to you on the rock or in a martini glass with a chunk of the pineapple. The great thing is the pineapple and the vodka have been "soaking" each other for so long that the vodka tastes like pineapple and the pineapple tastes like, uhm, well, a "really good pineapple" -- LOL

I forgot to mention earlier that there is a Graeter's Ice Cream across the street from the Whole Foods Market in Upper Arlington - 2 birds with one stone!

Oh schnikeys!

I should have known that -- I was thinking to myself -- "Wow, that is great that Armetta is going across the country to C-bus for a conference!" -- LOL -- Where is the darn ostrich anyway???LOL

Lynne,

Here is an article which discusses the Fish Market with regards to celiac disease - not much, but they are trying -- I used to howl at them to do this and they finally did!

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9144025/

Feel free to ask/call/email me about any thing related to C-bus...I wish I could come, but I have a wedding in San Diego that weekend! -- Funny story - this is the wedding where I am the Maid of Honor (Seriously)

Oh well, at least I will get to enjoy some grilled fish tacos and fresh sushi again!

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
