Ciao, Veronica. I just finished posting this under the other Italy thread a moment ago but want to add here, too, how much I love Italy (we currently live in Canada) and how wonderful it is to find great gluten-free restaurants, etc. I feel safe eating there because people are so aware and knowledgable.

We will be in Venice in a few weeks. Can you recommend gluten-free gelato places and restaurants? We will be staying in Mestre this time as we need to be close to the airport but will be spending time in Venice as well. We are very familiar with Venice. I am also trying to find a massage therapist as I have chronic pain. It would help to have a massage the day before we fly back to Canada. So far no one has responded to my inquiries.

Ciao,

sure I will give you names of restaurants and gelato places. I also would like to tell you that if you go to the pahrmacy you will find a lots of good items, such as pasta ( the best is asolane brand, coookies and snacks ). The only problem is that they are a little expensive for you, because of the dollar change. As far as a massage therapist I will try to give you some name.

I will get back to you tonight

Ciao

Veronica

Ciao Veronica,

My name is Alyssa and I am going to Italy in 9 days! I've heard that Venice is one of the worst parts of Italy for a celiac to find safe foods to eat... is this true? I don't speak italian (although I have learned the phrase "Io sono celiaca" and 'senza glutine per favore" as well as various other menial phrases (e.g. grazie). I'm a student that will be backpacking through Venice for a couple of days.

I had read that everyone is super aware of celiac, so I wasn't planning on searching out restaurants/ places where I can eat ahead of time... I was just going to say that phrase and wing it.... I've read that polenta and risoto are staples of Venice and that those are both gluten-free...

Grazie!!!!

Ciao Alyssa,

Not sure whether Veronica is still here - I have not seen her post for ages. I've now been to Venice twice since gluten free (at least ten times before that). We now go twice a year. Venice is not bad for finding gluten free but I suggest you do your research first. Venice is very touristy so most people will understand English. However, whenever I travel to a foreign country, I take restaurant cards along in each language and have it taken to the chef. Grom has gluten free gelato but it is not gluten free everywhere, even some of the fruit flavours, so just be cautious with that. The vendors will tell you, though. I had gluten free pizza in November. If you go to higher-end places they can prepare things for you - just be clear on the cross contamination bit. And yes, risotto and polenta are usually safe - still ask to be sure. It depends on the stock they use (i.e. purchased or homemade). Go to the Rialto Market to pick up fresh fruit and veg. Or another market or even supermarket.

Other parts of Italy are definitely better known for their food than Venice (because it is so touristy and tourists unfortunately are catered to) but there are excellent spots to eat. In what area are you staying?

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Did they say if the villi are damaged?  did they do a full Celiac panel or just a TTG? 
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Hi all. First post here :-)  I recently received my biopsy results from my endoscopy which showed lymphocytes in my duodenum. My surgeon said this is possibly celiacs and ordered a blood test to confirm. I had the blood test done 2 years ago and it was negative. So my question is could it really be ceilac and has this happened to anyone else? Also does anyone else know if this could be a false reading from the biopsy? And if the blood test is negative will he still assume celiac ... Again I would love to hear your stories on diagnosis if similar to me, So many questions! I get my results on Friday as I have to have further testing for other non-related things from the endo and just want to know the likelihood I guess. Feeling a little daunted and need to start thinking ahead if this is happening  Thanks in advance xx
    • Question on posting
      I have brought this to Admin's attention. 
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I think your Doctor is at fault for not making clear to you what you needed to do in the lead up to the biopsy. If dairy is the suspected cause and you've since cut it from your diet is it possible the biopsy could become invalid? You could end up having a pointless invasive procedure with the danger of a false positive/negative at the end. I think you should get in touch with your Doctor, let them know you've removed dairy from your diet and ask if that will impact on the results.  On the question of psoriasis or DH, that's something I've wondered about as well. Most of my skin issues improved  after gluten-free but they didnt resolve. Dairy has a big impact on them to this day. Whereas when, a year after going gluten-free, some inadvertent exposure to barley malt caused what I think was DH on my elbows it went after I removed the suspect food from my diet.  Hopefully thread below is of interest, best of luck with your diagnosis and ongoing journey to health      
    • Abuse and celiac/gi problems
      my personal symptoms above. Did another blood test and results came negative again, (gene test also negative). Found something that's interesting, useful for those that receive negative results and still convinced they have celiac or have some sort of food sensitivity(like i was). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2834720/ more links: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4479362/ http://bit.ly/1UlUTpq Kinda solved it for me, cause i personally went through all types of abuse as a child, had symptoms listed above, got better now, hardly any symptoms.  As a note my siblings went through similar situations to a lesser degree, and they both have GI issues growing up. Feel free to ask, and inform people about this, cause all those times the doctor said IBS or 'its in your head' it might be true. ( ~3 doctors I went for celiac didn't believe I have it, just cause i'm asian ;\)

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
