I'm putting this in the coping section because Redbridge Beer and Topsy's popcorn at Kaufman ( Royals) Stadium helps me cope with Celiac Disease. Most stadiums have other things you can read labels on that are gluten-free like frozen lemonade, potato chips, candy, ice cream bars, sodas, cotton candy, etc. At our stadium, you have a better chance with the gluten-free hot dogs at the hot dog/ sausage only stands. Same with popcorn. Less chance of cc.

Also, our stadium allows everyone to bring a small amount of food in. The soccer stadium gives me a paper to print out to allow me to bring a sandwich - email disability office and the general manager.

I'm pretty sure the only real sports we do in Utah are soccer and basketball, but it is really cool that it is opening up nationwide for fans to be able to eat when they head out to see their favorite team. Beer and sports? Definitely a coping thing for a lot of people. I may be too nerdy for sports, but I understand that some people are into that sort of thing. I used to do late night Friday beer and pizza Magic the Gathering parties. :ph34r: It's like sports for nerds.

Since I'll  be going to a Mets game this summer, I am happy to see this, K!

 

The hubs told me he knew there was a gluten-free concession at Citi Field, but it  is good to SEE it in writing somewhere.

When we attended the spring training games in Port St Lucie last month, they had no problem with me bringing in my sammy

and I  purchased bottled water  (yes, $3.50  for water is absurd) and enjoyed my first bag of Cracker Jacks in a million years.. :)

Petco Park here in San Diego has a gluten-free hot dog stand - completely seperate from all other concessions - men heading to the first game of the season on Friday night - son looking forward to seeing if the gluten-free stand has more options this season.

Great thread!

Thought I'd mention that the United Center in Chicago, where the Bulls and Blackhawks play, has a dedicated gluten free food stand, with Redbridge, hot dogs, nachos and other gluten free snacks.  Never has a long line, either.  Was awesome going to a Blackhawks game and feeling like a normal person with a hot dog and a beer :)

 

U.S. Cellular Field where the White Sox play sells New Grist beer.  They also have some gluten free food options, but I don't think there's a dedicated stand for gluten free.

"HEALTHY FOOD Healthy food alternatives including salads, vegetarian and gluten free entrees are available throughout Petco Park and at the Friar Fit cart located in the Mercado (Section 104)."

 

Pulled from the A,B,Cs of Petco -- sounds like they have indeed added a bit...will have one of the guys check in this weekend -- they don't come here often -- it's a "my Mom hangs out there" thing :rolleyes:

    • It makes a difference if you are Catholic. Don't want to get into a debate about why, but Catholic's must use some form of wheat in the host.  There is no such thing as a gluten free communion wafer at a Catholic Mass. The solution for a celiac is a LOW gluten host made from wheat starch.  That is not a solution that works for many celiacs.  You could also just take the cup, if it is offered, provided it does not have any of the host broken into it.  You do run the risk of cross contamination unless you are the first person receiving from the cup. Spiritual Communion is sometimes all you can do if you don't have a priest that understands or will work with you. My daughter has become very sensitive after a recent accidental high exposure to gluten. Her symptoms are neurological (loss of use of right foot and right arm, loss of balance, heaviness of limbs, loss of sight).   We spoke to our priest and he ordered a special small cup just for her. He leaves it covered during the consecration so there is no cross contamination.  My husband and I are Eucharistic Ministers and give it to her after we receive so the priest doesn't have to juggle so many things.   So, that is the Catholic solution. There is information on the USCCB website to provide your priest if he needs guidance.  http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/the-mass/order-of-mass/liturgy-of-the-eucharist/celiac-disease-and-alcohol-intolerance.cfm
    • So great to hear! Actually makes sense with the iron, as vitamin C helps in the absorption of iron. Sounds like a good theory that it is either the vitamin C, or vitamin C aiding in the absorption of the iron. Thanks for all the feedback. Going to try adding iron as well. Hoping this will help us both feel better and worry less  
    • Hello and welcome I don't have celiac. I do have several symptoms in common with you and I do have a problem with gluten, so NCGS for want of a better term.  A celiac response to gluten involves the immune system so there certainly can be a delay between ingestion and the body producing the antibodies. That would correlate with your tongue aching progressively through the week. Some of the weirder symptoms of celiac occur because those antibodies that have identified gluten proteins as a problem then attack different parts of the body, maybe that's the more delayed reaction in your case. Last time I was glutened definitely I noticed some reaction in a few hours but it was a couple of days before I was certain. After effects can last for weeks or months even.  Wheat allergy is the one with the instant response, it's IGE mediated and so you can have an immediate surge in histamines and in extreme cases anaphylaptic reaction. NCGS is less well understood, some dispute it's existince or question if gluten is the cause. The symptoms however are similar to celiac as far as I know and that includes response time.  You've been through a miserable time but your still young and you need to decide whether you want to pursue a diagnosis or not. If you do, then it will require a gluten challenge of probably 6-12 weeks. See the links below for more details.  If you don't I suggest you go strictly gluten free, keep a food diary and see if the improvements you noted before continue. I think you've probably found your answer. Best of luck!   Further reading https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/
    • This is why many of us stick to our own "Trusted Brands" of things we know are safe, and only buy stuff with the offical certification for gluten free. NOTE also in the US they do not HAVE to tell you their facility also processes wheat on the label, just if the actual product contains it in the ingredients. But many will just to avoid legal mumbo jumbo if they somehow have CC issues. Saying the facility also contains/processes wheat is just them covering themselves if people get sick from it.
    • I make my own mini loafs of a simple almond,coconut,apple sauce blend for dense, bland bread gluten free, and have my pastor bless them. I then keep them in the freezer and bring a piece with me for communion.
