Where in LA? There are PF Changs and Outbacks all over the place. (Check yahoo yellow pages for the addresses.) There may well be other restaurants, like mexican places, that you can work with the staff to find something you can have. I'm sure you'll find places, but for specific recommendations, it's helpful to know where in LA you're going to be. (It's a big sprawling mess down here... ;-) )

Don't worry too much. There are more restaurants than you can shake a stick at in LA, and more health conscious, special diet options than you might think. Can be tricky to find them, but some web searches will help.

For starters, there's a PF Changs (they have a gluten-free menu) at the Beverly Center (121 N. La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048. (310) 854-6467).

There's an Outback Steakhouse (they have a gluten-free menu) ten miles from there in Burbank (1761 N. Victory Place, Burbank, CA 91504 (818)567-2717).

This site, http://www.vegparadise.com/restaurants.html, lists vegetarian restaurants, which I put as an option because they can be more accustomed to vegans asking about ingredients and are likely to be more knowledgeable about those ingredients. (No guarantees they'll help, but they're an option.)

There's a Whole Foods (which is an upscale health-food store - good selection, but can be pricey) a few miles from there (6350 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90036, 323.964.6800).

A touch farther than that is Bristol Farms (even more upsclale than Whole Foods) though I doubt they'd have a much larger selection of gluten-free stuff than Whole Foods (7880 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90046, (323) 874-6301).

From the looks of things, the Bonaventure's restaurants also could probably handle your requests - particularly if you call ahead of time and let them know about it. I'm sure a google search will find you other resources. You could try calling the Celiac Disease Foundation, based in LA at (818) 990-2354, but I don't know how helpful they will be. But this list of links, http://www.celiac.org/connections.htm, that they list might have some useful people on it.

Good luck! I'm sure with a little bit of attention, you'll be fine.

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
