Hi again, Veronica!

I do not recall where you typed information on pizza places and other gluten-free restaurants in old Venice and Mestre. Sorry - would it be too much of a bother to post or PM me? Actually, it may be good to post here for others' benefit as well.

Thanks lots!

In Venice we have just one real gluten free restaurant; then we have places we often go and for this reason they know how to behave.....and they are safe....Pizza place there is only one On Lido, which is an island in front of Venice. Both Lido and Venice, we have gelato places......Always at your disposale for any information

Ciao Veronica

Yes - I know all about it although I have never been in Venice during that time.

We had a fantastic recent trip to Croatia and Venice! Our next trip is already booked for May. :D

Glad you had a great time, especially after your health problems beforehand :) I've never been to Italy but it's on my list!! Next year's holiday already planned, but not booked, so maybe the following year.

Thanks lots! I said this on another thread but I managed to get four seats in a row on the Toronto to Frankfurt flight both there AND return! It was amazing. I got to lie down. :D

I really like Italy a lot but I do confess I love Croatia more. Biased, I know, but I prefer less crowds and chaos and commercialism. Not that everywhere in Italy is that way (my favourite part is Sicily) but many areas are. It is still pretty amazing, though. And I firmly believe everyone should see Venice at least once. :)

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
