Not sure if you will still get this, I am new to the Forum, I'm from Wisconsin. It would be nice to have some people who actually understand me, not "oh I know how you feel, I don't like (insert random food) either!"

friends are dumb sometimes..

where in the WI are you from?

Another Wisconsinite here. :) I live outside of Berlin. Whereabouts are you?

I'm also Casein free for the moment (hopeful that I can reintroduce it after I heal) so living in the beer and cheese state without being able to have them is...well...cruel sometimes.

Then I think how happy and fortunate I am to be able to heal myself with something so simple as a diet change and things really aren't so bad.

People don't get it, that is for sure. But I have a lot of really supportive friends (and gluten-free husband) so it makes things easier than a lot of folks have it around here. :blink:

And New Grist/ Greens / Bards are pretty good beers too. B)

I just moved to WI myself. I'm up in West Bend. On facebook, there is a group called Gluten-Free Milwaukee (I think). They post a little here and there about businesses and restaraunts in the area.

Do any of you have a good gluten-free place to eat that you completely trust? I tried to go to Bonefish grill one day for lunch while shopping and learned they didn't open until 4:00. What about speciality bakeries? I miss my old pie shoppe.

Love Wisconsin. I'm on the western edge of this great state, not far from the Twin Cities.

What a coincidence - I'm from West Bend also :D

I moved back here (from Milwaukee) last August. It's much more peaceful... city stress and I don't do well together.

Hello from another cheesehead. I'm in a suburb of Milwaukee.

Thanks, SGWiskers, for the advice on the facebook page.

I haven't been out to eat much since deciding to take this seriously, because I just don't trust most restaurants, yet. However, I do know that Sazs in Wauwatosa understands celiac very well, because members of their staff and some family are celiac. You won't get that "huh?" look from the staff.

Double posting, here, since I said the same thing in Pondy's thread, but I noticed on the facebook page that a cookbook author with a new gluten free cake book out is having an event at a bookstore on Downer in MKE on Friday the 25th of March. I figured I would try to make my way there, just for a taste of cake, if nothing else. If anyone else wants to make plans to meet there to practice our secret handshake, just let us know here.

Hi all--sure wish I would have tried this part of the forum earlier! I wouldhave headed to that book signing in Milwaukee on Friday! I live a bit nearer to Madison than Milwaukee...ahorsesoul--I do believe I have met you on another forum years ago that had nothing to do with Celiac. I used goatlady then. (well I still do occasionally!) I guess I will check out a little more of this area! T

Hi Terri O!

If you don't mind my asking, where are you from?

From what I've read here, there are some good, gluten free conscious places to eat in Madison. I'm about 45 minutes from there, but I love that town & really want to check out a restaurant or two - I'd be up for a little road trip :D

Anyway, welcome to "this part of the forum"

Best,

Pondy

THanks for the Welcome Pondy! Yes there are supposed to be quite a few places in Madison. I have been referred to the "Silly Yak" bakery...isnt that a great name? I am about 25 minutes from East Towne Mall East of Lake Mills. I would certainly welcome a copilot going to Madison! I seem to always get turned around finding new places...although I am getting much better in that town now that my daughter goes to the University there! Terri O

I'm newly diagnosed and from Appleton, and thankfully we've got a few really great resources here. It's been crazy trying to adjust to a gluten free lifestyle, but thankfully there's a few small stores that sell a lot of great products, and even a couple of bakeries!

Any how, hiya fellow Wisconsinites :)

Hi & welcome! I'm a fellow Wisconsonite - from West Bend - probably a little over an hour north of you.

    • 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 in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from 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! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
