In Topic: Question About Cross-Contamination

Thanks for the pizza recommendation. I found a store that carries their products and will head there this weekend! As far as the restaurant goes - no dice...they don't even have one in our state. Thanks again!

In Topic: Question About Cross-Contamination

I do understand that that is the case - that cross contamination is bad no matter what. I think that's why I was confused that people seem to use their physical status as a barometer of when they've been glutened. I think in our society it is very hard to know for sure that we're avoiding cc if we aren't having a reaction. So, in short, I've decided to not get pizza at Domino's (at first I was excited for my daughter's sake, I have to admit). We do our reasearch and eat only the gluten-free options at restaurants.

I will keep taking it day-by-day. I have to trust her to do the same when I'm not with her. One serious night of pain on her 6th gluten free day after intentional ingestion of pasta did more to convince her that I ever could have (she was largely gastro symptom-free before diagnosis). She misses certain things, but overall hasn't worried too much about it. I think it helps that I consider myself the same as her and am treating myself as if I have celiac. I have a first cousin and now a daughter with it and MANY other untested relatives that are highly suspect. I'd be willing to bet money that I'm correct in my self-assessment!

Thanks for the input!

In Topic: Domino's "Gluten Free" Crust

I understand the issues with Domino's gluten-free pizza and cross contamination - does the cheese actually contain gluten? also?

I was hoping to take my 10-year-old daughter (diagnosed via blood test - TTG greater than 100 - with celiac one month ago) to get the pizza and see if it bothers her. Is that not a wise decision?

Is cross-contamination always really bad for celiacs or can symptoms dictate how careful you have to be? For instance, although I've spent many years (i.e., 35 years) not feeling well and feel great after going gluten-free, I don't seem to get the immediate reaction to gluten that some get. Does that mean anything or not? (I suspect myself with celiac as well, but wasn't tested until after going gluten-free for too long. It runs in my family, though.)

If my daughter eats at Domino's and feels ok, does that mean it IS ok or is that meaningless?

Thanks!
