Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.

Fish sauce is OK; it's just fish and salt.

My ex-fave Chinese place guy went over my Chinese gluten-free dining card and started marking out everything I could not eat on their take out menu. When he was finished only white rice and some chicken dish made with a nasty white sauce was gluten free. Even the soup contains soy sauce (I make my own at home now) so we either have Chinese food at home or we go to PF Changs (very rarely).
I work at PF Chang's and the gluten-free menu is top notch. They can also do gluten free fried rice. Chang's is a little pricey, but it's some of the best gluten-free dining available in my opinion. I eat there after my shifts often.

I don't eat chinese unless I'm at PF Changs, cause I always end up just having steamed vegetables. I can do that at home and make it taste better.
I wanted to add also, it depends on how the restaurant orders thier supplies. Say they order from a standard restaurant supply place, they get all the same stuff as everyone else, and its usually in bulk and somewhat pre-packaged, so you're not neccesarily dealing with authentic Thai stuff ( anyone notice how almost all restaurants use Kikkoman?) Then you have smaller more authentic places that are ordering from local markets or from suppliers that are bringing in things directly from Thailand. In the case of one restaurant in Hawaii that I love, the owners wife is Thai, and all thier stuff comes directly from Thailand, and almost everything they use is gluten free, at least sauce and spice wise. So, as with everything, there is no "All curries are safe" or "All fish sauce is safe", cause it all depends on what they are buying and from where. I always ask if the curry is from a mix or just a straight spice, I always ask that the card be taken back to the chef. More often than not they whip up a special dish for me, and I end up a loyal customer cause they take care of me.

When DH and I get chinese takeout I order off the "diet menu"- steamed chicken and broccoli. I have my own tamari or peanut sauce that I add at home to get that real chinese food taste.
Diagnosed Celiac based on equivocal results on blood seriology tests, did not have a biopsy due to already eating gluten free (I didn't know any better at the time to keep eating gluten until all tests could be done).
Diagnosis came 3 months after the birth of my first child at age 31 (I believe childbirth was my trigger).
Gluten Free since 8/06
Genetic testing revealed:
I have one copy of DQ2 (DQA1 05/DQB1 02)
Son- 3 years old, so far not showing any signs of digestive issues and does eat gluten- fingers crossed!
Second baby born after I have been gluten free for 2 1/2 years- a healthy boy weighing in at 9 pounds at birth!
