My husband was just diagnosed this week, is there a site, book, anything with restaurant listings and their gluten-free options? Also, any recommendations of the best sites, cookbooks and foods. Thanks! :unsure: [quote

I have not gone to any restaurants yet, I'm still to afraid. I have called a couple of them in our area (Chicago area) and if you just explain to the manager what the allergy is, I do believe they should accomodate you without any problems. I have a restaurant card that is to be given to the chef explaining what you can and cannot have. If you'd like one, or anyone else for that matter, just let me know and I'll send you one.

The best cookbook that I have purchased is by Roben Ryberg. It has all different types of recipes from main courses to deserts, and so far what I have tried I LOVE!!! I have tasted many breads that have been made with rice flour and they have all tasted very gritty and are heavy and hard as a rock. But in theis cookbook there is a buttermilk bread that is so delicious.

I was just diagnosed in March amd I am still testing the waters. I have found that Trader Joes, I don't know if you have one in your area, has a list in the store or Gluten Free Foods, and so far I have purchased many things on the list and have been very happy.

I hope all this info can help you. But I will say, just looking at this website and getting the encouragement from all who are here, is the best help that you can get. I thank everyone for all there support. If it wasn't for them, I would be completely lost.

Good Luck to you and your husband!

Well, there's a post that contains all the gluten-free chain and fastfood restaurants (PF Changs, TJI Fridays, McDonalds, etc.).

You might find http://www.glutenfreerestaurants.org helpful....depending where you live -- they have really strict regulations to make it on their list so you know the restaurant has to be pretty safe.

Hi celiac3270, Thank for the listing, but I live in Illinois and I am not seeing any restaurants here. Is there a different website that I can look at?

Thanks

Linda

The Yahoo forum for Celiac Disease, http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/SillyYaks/ , has over 100 restaurants listed and is also a good source of other information. You can log in as a member - it's very easy - and go to the files for an abundance of information.

Also, the Delphi Forum, http://forums.delphiforums.com/celiac/start has some great information as well.

These are the three sites I use for information - - each has a very different flavor, different interests, etc. Try them out.

I'll add a warning to this. Particularly if your husband has been sick, do NOT go and start eating out right away. Eating out even at good places carries a high risk of cross contamination. Even eating processed foods bought from a store carries that risk. Start easy with good fresh meat, vegetables and fruit.

I'll second that, richard. Sometimes you just can't help it, but limit eating out as much as you have the power to.

Yep.....also, if you get contaminated eating out, you might not know it (many people have symptoms weeks or months into the diet).....if you wait till you feel 100% better, you'll know when you get contaminated......much better than getting sick constantly and not knowing what from........

    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Having anxiety is a major symptom of celiac disease per many of our members on this forum (including me).  These are the tests needed for diagnosing celiac disease but the catch is that you need to be consuming gluten in order for them to be valid.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your GP or PCD doctor can order the panel.  Try to go for the complete panel.  Often just the TTG tests are given in order to save costs.  It's good, but does not catch all celiacs. I hope you get relief!

      You need to have your adrenal glands checked. I was diagnosed with celiac after my adrenal glands started to shut down. Since then I have met at least 3 others that had the same thing happen. It was missed 3 times in the hospital, for some reason the adrenals often get missed.  It sounds like the latter stages of hypo adrenalism, not adrenal fatigue. Research it to see if that seems like what you are going through and make sure you find a dr that knows how to diagnose and treat it
    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Hi my name is Alex and I am 23 years old. I am suffering so badly right now in life. Everyday I have multiple, very severe panic attacks. I have called 911 many times in the last 6 months. I am suffering with vertigo, intense weakness and pains, I can not digest anything, I have terrible acid reflux, I can't sleep, I can't relax, my heart constantly palpitates, my breathing is "forced labor" all day. I am suffering in a mental fog. I have been from doctor to hospital to doctor and every EKG comes back normal, every doctor says the same thing, I am struggling with anxiety and they write me whatever prescription of the week they are offering  I recently took it upon myself to cut gluten out of my diet, and wallah! I felt like I did in high school within 2 days. I work in NYC and many times it is nearly impossible to find something containing no gluten, and many times when I ask they tell me "No Gluten" and I eat whatever food I ordered (probably salad w/ dressing) and i find myself driving home in a terrible panic attack. Panic is my main symptom. I have not been diagnosed yet, but the difference from how I feel and how to the people around me tell me I act I am 100% convinced. The question I'm having is, what do you think? Is it possible I have Celiac? Can panic be the main symptom? I'm telling you right now, my anxiety is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. I lay on the ground for 2 hours with numb limbs feeling like I am having a stroke unable to talk to anyone. I have 2 of these a day. Please let me know your thoughts. I truly am a novice with all of this. I am suffering and I need help. Thanks
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The following link might be helpful for others experiencing simlar psychosomatic issues with doctors. Although it's only for psychiatrists, I think it should be for all doctors! http://www.psychsearch.net/complaints/ The neuropsychiatrist I saw might fall into this category? I can checkmark:

       Falsified medical records
       No Biological Test for "Mental Illness" (no blood, urine or other lab testing)
       Breach of Confidentiality (...if she sends my medical records to my doctor or discusses them with him. I am requesting a copy of my records from this doctor t see if she sent anything to him.)
       Physical Illness Misdiagnosed as "Mental Illness"
       I was told I have a "chemical imbalance" (without any lab tests)
       Unethical Conduct
       Unprofessional conduct
       Something else that didn't seem quite right  
    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
