Hi Terrie!

I live outside of Boston and here is the listing of the finer dining places in Quincy Market. I would advise eating at a higher end place because most of the other food places will be hard pressed to serve you gluten-free food. I have eaten at McCormick and Schmick's before and they are a seafood place. They accommodate and I did not get sick. Quincy Market

If you really want a fantastic gluten-free experience, I would HIGHLY recommend "Marco" in the North End. It is very easy to get to from Quincy Market. All you do is cross the Greenway into the North End and they are on Hanover St., which is easy peasy to find...one of the main drags. You pretty much dump onto Hanover after crossing the Greenway. From Quincy Market it will take 10 minutes to walk to Marco. You should call ahead for reservations as they will make fresh gluten-free bread for you and it arrives at the table warm. They have many gluten-free options, including good gluten-free pasta, and will make just about any pasta dish you want that's do-able with gluten-free pasta. They also have half plates and full size, depending on your appetite. Not sure if you are able to go outside of the Market to eat but Marco is definitely worth your while but you do need reservations. Marco Menu Scroll down on the menu and you'll see the remarks about gluten-free options.

Hope this helps and I hope you have a great time! Boston is pretty gluten-free friendly so don't worry too much.

Her's another link that might be useful: Gluten free Registry.

Thank you SO much! You put my mind at ease!

Glad to hear that. You do still have to be careful, as always, but Boston is an easier place to find gluten-free and "most" of the people working in finer dining establishments are savvy to our needs. I am very sensitive and go out to eat in the city about twice a year and haven't had a problem yet. The Registry link is a big help too.

Let me know where you end up eating and how it went! :)

    • cadbury eggs?
      According to last year's Coeliac UK Food and Drink Directory they both are safe foods for us - I haven't got this year's though.   I do react  if I am glutened but have never had any problem with Creme Eggs - and  I bought some just after Christmas.  If you are anywhere else in the world maybe they change the ingredients but I would say you are fine in the UK..

    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Good idea! Add also the lactulose - mannitol test, to confirm they are/are not experiencing leakyness in the gut, then correlate the results with the symptoms (obviously digestive symptoms would have to be excluded, because diarrhea and bloating will probably be present anyway, due to having damaged intestines). You see, ironically it would be "gluten-free challenge", because possibly systemic symptoms ("leaky gut syndrome")  and GI symptoms start after going IV fluids -> gluten-free (instead of "gluten challenge", which would be gluten-free -> gluten).

      PPIs should not affect your digestion of gluten one way or another. Many folks with celiac disease may have villous damage without obvious symptoms. Others eventually get symptoms after the disease is "activated," but exactly how or why this happens is not yet clearly understood. Biopsies are generally done after someone has symptoms, and likely already has villous damage, so I would imagine your doctor must be necessarily a bit vague about whether you might have "inactive" or "active" celiac disease. The gold standard is to get a biopsy while still eating gluten, and then another after being on a gluten-free diet for some time, to assess whether you heal without gluten in your system. Positive genes and blood work, AND villous atrophy would seem like fairly strong evidence, but that's up to your doctor to determine. If you feel comfortable sharing your test results on the forum, some folks here can give you their two cents. But listen to your doctor! Glutenease might help your digestion, but if you have an autoimmune reaction to gluten, it won't prevent the possible damage that comes with gluten mistakes. Research on l-glutamine is somewhat supportive for healing, but it's not a panacea.  You will read about various levels of sensitivity and prudence here and elsewhere. Eventually you'll come up with a plan that you consider is "safe," but hopefully will still let you get out in the world. Read up on gluten-free groceries and how to deal with restaurants safely, and you ought to be able to find a happy "middle-path" between prudence and paranoia. I'm one of the fairly sensitive/paranoid types at this point in my life. I personally don't worry too much about possibly breathing in gluten, but on the other hand I wouldn't eat anything that's been out where flour is in the air. Nor would I use a shared toaster or fryer. Again, it's important that you form a lifestyle approach that is informed about the risks but still a good life! Most importantly, work with your medical team to determine if you in fact have celiac disease.
