Swamp Restaurants With Gluten Free Diners
0

4 posts in this topic

Just wondering what would happen if we all organized a day and we all went to restaurants requesting gluten free menus/options?

Interesting.

There are so many ways it could be done. Obviously, we would go to the "unfriendlies"- the ones that need to hear our roar! And when you actually get starved for food, you could go eat at the "friendlies", lol.

I could go on and on about my ideas, but I don't want to do a monologue...:)

I think, that's a great idea, we should try it.

Actually, individual restaurants of chains may not be able to do much. What if we all email the corporate contact email on the same week? I think getting a gluten-free request or inquiry once every few weeks doesn't register. A bunch at a time might make them notice.

Pick no more than 5 places or you will lose people. Give us the contact address and a brief idea of what to say or even something we can cut and paste. Just like people do to get a point to a senator.

Our local CSA chapter has chosen a few restaurants that they thought could pull together a few gluten-free meal options and gone in and educated them about preparing a meal, then they organized a Dinner Out night at the place and got together a group to eat there. Mostly it has been higher end places with simple steak dinners and fish or chicken option. I haven't attended and don't know how they trained the staff but they are just everyday folk like us who invested themselves to the benefit of so many. There are several chains with gluten-free menues, Bonefish etc., in the area but they want to try and open up more options.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
