2 posts in this topic

We are from Australia and want to travel to the USA, My wife is a Celiac and we are worried about eating and would like to know what are the best hotels in LA and Les Vegas to stay at that understand Gluten Free Food. She gets very sick and we have stayed away from the USA thinking they do not understand and travel mostly in Asia where she has never been sick.

Amy suggesstions would be appreciated

I went to Vegas in November - here are some of the places I ate.

Todd English P.U.B - outside the Aria - had Strongbow Cider. Server was very knowledgeable of gluten-free choices informed me of the carvery station they offer (no bread obviously) and what sauces were ok and not ok. Checked on the soup my wife had (Butternut squash or something like that) which was not gluten-free. I chose a hamburger which she said she would inform the chef of it needing to be gluten-free and added that the kitchen is used to preparing things this way and she even informed me that the fries were no good as they were fried in the same oil as other things.

Mon Ami Gabi @ the Paris Hotel - went for breakfast as gluten-free eggs Benedict were on the menu and they were great. They also had a separate gluten-free menu for other meals but I only went once for the breakfast.

Prime Steakhouse @ Bellagio - very expensive but again they made me feel very comfortable as they knew right off the bat which sauces for the steaks were ok. Went with the chilled seafood tower for appetizer and split it with my wife.

Canaletto @ the Venetian - chose this restaurant as it has gluten-free pasta. They prepared a seafood dish with red sauce over the gluten-free pasta and it was also very good.

Nine Fine Irishman @ NY NY - did not eat here but we did have drinks and they have Red Bridge - we stopped in at happy hour thinking we could get some drinks and appetizers but all of the apps on the happy hour menu were fried and gluten filled. But it was nice to have a couple beers. If you go at happy hour the downstairs bar was crowded and it was a little confusing were to seat on several tables had reserved signs on them. I assume as it was a happy hour situation they only want people sitting at the bar or the tables in the bar area. At first the staff was not very helpful but we finally got someone to tell us there was another bar upstairs.

PF Changs @ Planet Hollywood Casino - your normal gluten-free menu from a PF Changs but again they did have Red Bridge.

Caesars Palace - was listed on the Red Bridge website as being available but I did not see it at any of the bars I looked at. I was just "sightseeing" there so I did not really inquire.

    • Those could be celiac symptoms or they could be something else.  Just because celiac runs in your family, I would not jump to conclusions.  That could be dangerous!   For example, my niece presented with celiac disease symptoms.  She tested negative but they found that she has Crohn's (not that she can't ever develop celiac disease).  While a gluten free diet could not hurt her, it is not the cause of her Crohn's flare-ups.    I would not worry about his weight unless he is no longer on the growth charts.   There could be more related to his anxiety issues too. i would NOT recommend sharing prescriptions, especially on a 9 year old!  Dapsone is some pretty evil medication that can do some serious liver damage (but if you have DH or  leporisy, it might be worth the risk -- but I would think not for kids).  For DH, sticking to a gluten-free diet  is much preferred, but I will let one of our members who has DH comment on that.   Those with DH often do not test positive in blood work.  Best to get a skin biopsy (tricky on DH so read up). Please find a dermatologist  and/or a Ped GI who is celiac savvy.    
    • So, now they have found a metal toxicity in my body along with needing to be gluten free.  For the toxicity, I am now taking supplements after and between meals.  This a good thing because it prompts me to actually eat 3 meals a day and in a timely manner and not just a grab on the go item whenever.  The down side is remembering to take the silly things.  I can honestly say how much a pain it is to remember to take the supplements sometimes.  Been on this regimen for about a week now, and I am starting to feel better and all my systems are getting thoroughly cleaned out.  The real test will be in about 3 weeks or so, as it is about this time I become more vulnerable to the neurological symptoms.  I actually did some research on metal toxicity and found something incredible.  The symptoms I had been having all fall under this problem.  This could also have been yet another contributing factor of why I needed to go gluten free. Just a thought.  One thing I did consistently find is that once the toxicity is taken care of, this would not take away any food allergies or gluten issues.  I had gone through a different detox program back in February-March, and the neurological symptoms I have been dealing with was magnified x10 it seemed.  Another praise in this regimen is that I have been virtually symptom free since taking these supplements.  A few episodes but very minor.   
    • I have not taken him to a dermatologist. I have dapsone, which I put on the rash, it always clears up. I have it for another family member. But then I started reading about celiac and all these dots are out there but not connected.  The next time he has the bumps, I am going to take him in. In the mean time, I am trying to find a dermatologist who understands the condition. I don't want my kid to have celiac. And I kinda feel crazy for thinking he may have a gluten issue but with it in my family and him having these other things, I want to be dilligent.   i will read up on the test you suggested. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond everyone.   
    • I tested positive to deamidated gliadin in August at a hospital. My old GI tested me using gliadin (the test listed on your result) in September and it was negative. Literally the next day, my new GI tested for deamidated gliadin again and it was positive (I was unaware the hospital scheduled an appointment with the new GI for follow up).  If you still suspect it, Google deamidated gliadin, print out the Mayo clinic lab info and circle the part where it says they have discontinued the use of gliadin in favor of the deamidated gliadin.  Has he seen a dermatologist?
    • He has a rash on his fingers from time to time. Angular Chetelis. Mouth sores. So skinny. Anxious.
