On another note, does your family's fear about gluten affect your habits when dining out? Do you even get to go out? Or have you adapted your lifestyle to accommodate the rest of your loved ones? If so, the possibility still exists for all of you to enjoy eating out a restaurant every once in a while. Most places, reputable ones anyway, will accommodate any food allergy/dietary restrictions.

I feel like the main fear is CC of restaurants who just don't have the full understanding of how large the market is of people suffering from some form of a dietary restriction.

haha Growing up I lived with or next door to my mom, my aunt, my grandmother, three female cousins and my grandfather...I learned young not to underestimate a woman, as I'm sure my grandfather must have to have survived.

I can still recall the horrors of forgetting to put down the toilet seat... :ph34r:



Ahhhhhhhh, here is a wise, wise man , ladies! :D

I think it is easy to be a little over concerned about gluten contamination at first. When people are new to the gluten-free diet especially, and they suddenly start having to be aware of minute, invisible traces of something that can make them sick, they may get a little over zealous about it for a while. That kind of goes along with the "I see celiacs everywhere" phase too. And the "burn all the wheat fields" phase. Or maybe only I had that last one. :)

@ Heidi,
Your celiacs or non-gluten eaters may get over this hyper-concern after a while. That may take some time though and probably won't happen until they have started feeling better for a while.

You should also know that some of us develop additional food intolerances and can react to other foods, like nightshades, soy, corn etc. Sometimes people mistake those reactions for gluten reactions.

And at first when you are gluten free and your body is reacting to just about anything you eat, it can be very confusing. The first assumption is often that it is a gluten reaction, but it may be another food intolerance or could be just adjustment to the gluten-free diet. It takes some time for a person's damaged gut to settle down and for them to feel "normal" again.

But, welcome to the site, and the controversy that is the gluten-free diet! :)
