Salad bars are not very safe places for us. People drop croutons in the dressings or the other containers that should otherwise be gluten-free. Sorry your having a rough time!

Do you have problems with dairy? That is the first thought that comes to my mind at a salad bar besides possible cross contamination. What kind of dressing did you use? Is it possible you have problems with soy (in mayo) or high fructose (in ketchup, BBQ sauce, fruit drinks). Sometimes dressings can have these in them.

I rarely will eat any salad dressing at a restaurant. If you look at the labels of most salad dressings you will see soy sauce, maltodextrin, MSG, soy protein... all can have gluten. And, of course, the cross contamination is a big problem.

If a restaurant tosses their salad in a bowl, that bowl is usually used for salad with croutons. I have had waiters go back to the salad area and pick out the croutons! They can also use the same tossing utensils on croutoned salad. Not very safe.

I often ask for the vinegar and oil if it is balsamic and the oil is olive. Otherwise I just put lemon on it. I can't eat dairy either, so that is something to test out. I ate a little dairy (the eggs were cooked in butter and I patted it off before I ate it) 5 days ago and had D for 3 days. Not fun.

Sorry you got so ill. It gets so old to keep running into gluten when you think you are doing so well. I have a "zero-tolerance" policy for myself... if I think it might have gluten, I don't eat it, even if I am starving. I have had to go to the hospital before when I was in so much pain, so don't want to do that again. Nothing tastes as good as Gluten Free feels! Hope that made you smile.

Maltodextrin, MSG and soy protein are all gluten-free. I have not seen a dressing that contains soy sauce, but yes, soy sauce usually contains wheat.

Usually, it's in asian salad dressings, like sesame ginger dressing. They're rather popular on the west coast, but I don't know how common they are back east.

    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Is coffee glutem free or not ?  Always wondered about this ............. got to have my coffee... I am new to this  , very new .........
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
