In Topic: Any National Chains That Serve gluten-free Breakfast?

02 January 2014 - 01:49 PM

I had good luck at Denny's the other day... I really miss greasy spoon diner food sometimes, but this was a decent substitute.  The eggs/omelets and hash browns were fine.  They have a pdf allegergen list on their website, and I spoke with the server before taking the plunge.  I'll admit I was scared because of the cross-contamination potential, but that was a couple of days ago... I'm feeling good.


In Topic: Testing - Is It Worth It? (Newbie Here)

Thank you all so much for your input!  What's the deal with the genetic test?  Is that a way to positively identify celiac disease without the need for a gluten challenge?  Is it something that is usually covered by insurance?

 

I'm currently feeling better than I have in a very, very long time.  I'm eating mostly vegetarian with some occasional seafood and seem to be doing great.  I have more energy than I've had in recent memory, and my concentration is good even without caffeine.  I can't imagine going back to eating that stuff...


In Topic: Anyone Else Sensitive To Caffeine?

Yeah, I saw that, but was trying to help I3oogie Down.  A new one is probably a good plan.

 

Ha... sorry, I'm a noob!  This seemed like the thread with the most relevant information regarding the caffeine thing, so that's where I replied.

You both have some points that I hadn't considered. Motivation to stick to the diet really hasn't been much of a problem lately - long-term pain and suffering is a great deterrent. I've found that I'm starting to lose my taste for many of those things (beer, bread, etc.) since I have such a strong reaction to them. My main problem seems to be accidental exposure, thinking something is gluten free when in fact it is not, and then finding out the hard way 2-days later. :/ Perhaps I'll talk to my doctor again about the testing situation... maybe it's worth a shot.  Hadn't thought about the nutrient levels either.  Thank you both so much. :)

 Haha!  That's awesome.  Will do - thank you very much!  :)

 

All fixed - I've got my new identity.  Thank you!
