Moving To France, Very Gluten Sensitive - Help!

04 November 2013 - 10:32 PM



I am moving to Grenoble, France for work.  From what I hear, many French don't believe in celiac and gluten intolerance!  I'm very nervous, and am considering bailing on the job!  I am very sensitive to cross contamination (my house is entirely gluten free and I don't eat out, or many packaged gluten free foods).  I feel pretty good about feeding myself in my own home since the markets there are very good, but here are my concerns:


1.  What to eat while traveling in Europe


2.  Since France is a big food culture and socialization is mainly food related, I'm worried I won't be able to make a good social circle (especially if many people thing "gluten intolerance" isn't real).


3.  Non food items that are gluten free, like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, floss, etc


4.  Physicians and dentists there having knowledge about gluten-free medications and gluten free dental products for dental visits.


If anyone has any insight from either living in France or visiting, it would be much appreciated.  Thanks in advance!!

Gluten Free Bunny Food?

Hi all,


I'm having the hardest time playing with my rabbit without getting sick!  He's a really sweet animal and I've had him 5 years and really, really don't want to part with him.  Whenever I take him out a lot and spend a lot fo time with him (which he requires - he's needy!), I get cc symptoms.  This has been going on for a year and a half now since I went gluten free.  Please help!  This oscillation of me getting sick followed by not playing with him for a couple weeks is not good for either of us.
