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........

    • New Celiac Doctor - Atlanta/Duluth, GA
      I can't help you with finding a new GI, but I can empathize with driving the 400!   I have family in the Northern Atlanta area and visit often.   How horrible that your account was so mis-managed! 
    • New Celiac Doctor - Atlanta/Duluth, GA
      Hello! I have Celiac Disease (confirmed by blood tests and endoscopy done in 2013) and was going to a doctor at Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates until the end of last year (2015) when they started charging me for things that happened in 2013 - two years late. I had since changed insurance and was forced to pay out of pocket for the charges or be sent to collections. All in all, I loved my doctor there, but was very unhappy with the way the billing was managed.  So, I found a new doctor and have seen her once. I like her very much so far, but have recently moved and my home is so far from her office it often takes me 1-2 hours to get there with Atlanta traffic. (Her office is at Emory St. Joseph's hospital.) I should say one of the reasons we moved to Duluth was to get away from Atlanta traffic. I don't want to change practices, but I'm considering it. Does anyone out there live in North Atlanta? Alpharetta, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Suwanee? And have a doctor in the area they would recommend that is NOT associated with Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates? I would rather drive 5 hours to see a doctor than go back to that group, no matter how good the doctors are! Any recommendations are welcome!
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Welcome!  Unfortunately, you would have to go back on gluten to get tested (8 to 12 weeks for the blood test and 2 to 4 weeks for the endoscopy).  Here are the tests: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am sorry that your doctor is so mis-informed! There are over 300 symptoms attributed to celiac disease and some celiacs are considered "silent" with no symptoms at all!  I personally was anemic and had no tummy issues that I was aware of at the time of my diagnosis.   There are other forum members who have Sjogren's who might have some good advice (@Gemini).   I wish you well!  
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Hi! This is my first post here. I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. I'm in the diagnostic process for Sjogren's, which my rheumatologist is very sure that I have even though my dryness symptoms are very mild. (I am positive for SSA, the autoantibody associated with Sjogren's.)  The symptoms I initially went to my GP with are: fatigue, hair loss, irregular menstrual cycle (very unusual for me), headaches (migraines, almost daily), elevated temperature, weight loss My GP did not do the blood test for Celiac disease. She opted not to because when she asked me if I had loose stool, I said "No, actually, I've been constipated every day for the last 10 years." She said, "Ok, no Celiac then."  ???????? During the diagnostic process, I also lost a pregnancy.  When I eliminated gluten because of recommendations from the Sjogren's Foundation website, almost all of my symptoms disappeared. I still have the hair loss, but no headaches, fatigue is better, cycle is regular, and I'm back to my normal weight. Even my temperature is closer to my norm. I feel like an entirely new person. I still sometimes have mild dryness symptoms but nothing that would have prompted me to go to the doctor without the other symptoms. Should I make an appointment with my rheumatologist and try to get tested for Celiac disease? Has anyone had a similar experience? And how hard do you think it will be to get tested? (Like most doctors I've worked with, my rheumatologist likes to be the one who makes the suggestions.) Thanks for any input! Kristen
    • frustrated and not feeling well
      Hello, how long did it take to get back up? I quit the pepcid and started iron but the ferritin dropped from 74 in December, to 49 in March and 33 a couple of weeks ago.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
