  1. I had the same question, we'll be there next week. I called their number for questions, 707-644-4000 x374, and got bounced around a bit then told to bring our own food. When I asked if we needed to bring any documentation to bring the food into the park, she just took down my name to let them know to expect us. The other option would be to contact the restaurants individually.
  2. Allergist Or Gi?

    I agree. Allergists don't usually know much about celiac. My sister tested positive for tissue transglutaminase, but when she asked her allergist, he said if gluten doesn't bother her then don't worry about it. How would she know if it bothers her if she's never gone a day without it? She has food allergies from A-Z, most likely caused by the celiac disease.
  3. Has anyone checked out the new flavor of Post Pebbles? Marshmallow mania, or something like that. Looks like something my son would like. For some reason I though post pebbles had gluten, so I've been buying Malt-O-Meal's version Dino-Bytes. Now they're changing the ingredient list on the cocoa dino-bytes as they are concerned about cross-contamination. Guess it's time to switch to Post Cocoa Pebbles. My son is allergic to cow's milk, and a celiac. I am a celiac and allergic to all corn and its derivatives (meaning basically all food additives in the US). Needless to say, I cook a lot. My son does fine with cereals though.
  4. Hi Everyone, I'm new here. I'm an atypical celiac who was diagnosed almost a year ago (after 5+years of thinking I was just allergic to wheat). My 2 yo son and brother have recently been diagnosed as well. A restaurant mixed up my order a few days ago and I was sick for 24 hours, though not with diarrhea. I think it's ok, since I was a gluten-eating celiac my first pregnancy and everything turned out ok (other than his baby tooth enamel which is a bit weak), I just have a tendency to worry during pregnancy... As an atypical celiac, diarrhea and weightloss are not major problems for me, I tend to gain weight and get constipated more often. My other symptoms are the most potent, (depression, anxiety, joint pain, thyroid trouble) perhaps because I don't get the gluten right out of my system. Odd thing about this pregnancy, is my body is less forgiving of me, my celiac symptoms are much more pronounced, I'm much more sensitive, and my food allergies are enough to drive me nuts. My biggest goal is to avoid triggering my immune system as much as possible, but it seems to be on high alert. Just the opposite of my first pregnancy.
