True story, we went to restaurant while out of town. I told them I was extremely sensitive to gluten, then explained it in detail. I thought they understood. They told me the hamburger steak was safe without the gravy so I ordered that and veggies. When the food arrived I took a big bite of the Hamburger steak and told my husband how good it was. After a few bites a light bulb went off! Oh my gosh this meat has bread crumbs in it! It's TOO tender, something about the texture made me question it! My husband went to the Manager and sure enough it had bread crumbs! What were they thinking when we explained all this and they told me that was wheat free?? Needless to say I got very sick. and was in a lot of pain for days. Now I don't trust eating out. :(

I guess you have to question EVERY thing thing even when they tell you it's safe. BE CAREFUL.

I don't like to eat out anymore. I watched all my friends eat at waffle house the other morning. As I set there, I was disgusted at the things I saw. The bread was cross contaminating everything. Ugh :(

If the waiter or person taking the order doesn't appear educated on Gluten free, the restaurant does not properly educate their staff and stay away. Take Jason's Deli for example. The person who carries out your food was able to explain to me that they brought me packaged chips so they don't risk someone not changing their gloves and reaching into the bag. All she does is carry the food out and she gets it. So ask questions when you go out to test their knowledge. Fast food places I try questions like, "Do you cook the fries in a separate frier?" Sometimes the person will reply by asking if I am gluten free. That is a good sign! Another good question is, "What gluten free salad dressings do you have?" Uneducated people don't usually know there can be gluten in salad dressings. Then start making a safe restaurant list in your local area. It has way more to do with the management than with the menu, any restaurant can create a gluten free item.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
