Social events have been a bit challenging to say the least. Do you find that you are now avoiding eating out with friends, co-workers and sometimes family members because of gluten contamination?! We are. Let's chat and if we find that we live in driving distance to each other., perhaps we can form our own social group.
We are a married couple, no children and we are both gluten sensitive. Our one and only safe and favorite restaurant serves Indian food exclusively. We are open to other recipes.

Do you entertain? If you ask others over then you can control what's on the menu. As for restaurants, do you have Outback, PF Chang, or Bonefish Grill in your area? They both have gluten-free menus. This doesn't mean there isn't contamination sometimes, but at least you know what you can try to eat.

I am a long ways away (oregon) so getting together would be hard, but your mention of indian food got me curous. I have basically given up going out to ANY ethnic food (except sushi) because I keep on fainling to be able to explain what I need to folks in the kitchen who may not speek english. I have gotten burned too many times.
I really miss indian food, my favorite!, but have been too intimidated to try. Do you have to get very specific with your requests? Is the food mostly gluten-free in the first place?

We love both of the Indian restaurants especially because they make most of their food withour wheat! Of course we do not eat the NAAN and the Rotis. But their pakoras are made with chickpea flour and are yummy. I do ask if the oil is fresh and not used for frying wheat products. We eat most of their menu choices and love it!

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003
