Thanks! I'm def doing all I can to help. She's 13 and not enjoying the dietary changes. Having me there to go through it with her is helping I think. They're in the process of getting my younger niece tested now.

Red Robin is very good with gluten-free. If they said the dressing was gluten-free, it likely was.

I did not ask them if it was "Gluten Free" I am new to this and just read that after I came back home downloaded a free ebook for Fast food for celiacs or some something and I read this in the book : 

 

 

Red Robin Gluten Free Menu

Appetizers

Garden Fresh Humus Plate with no garlic bread

Salads

  • Simply Grilled Chicken Salad with no croutons and garlic bread
  • Crispy Chicken Tender Salad with no crispy chicken (grilled chicken must be substituted) and no garlic bread
  • House Salad with no croutons
  • Avo-Cobb-O with no bleu cheese crumbles and no croutons
  • Side Caesar Salad with no croutons or garlic bread

Well I got iAvo cobbo salad with out the bread and I did get some dressing!! But above it does say it is gluten-free if w/o blue cheese and bread... SO I got it with Blu cheese w/o knowing blu cheese had Gluten!! See it is all a learning thing. I have also read that blu cheese has conflicting stories weather it is gluten-free or not! All since I had gotten back from Red Robin. it is all a learning thing!! All I know is after I ate I almost didn't make it to the restroom!! 

It won't be long and I wil have this all memorized by heart! Wht restaurant I can eat at what one I cannot and what I can eat at what restaurant!!

If you don't tell a restaurant that you need food from the gluten-free menu, they won't know.  they may have different chicken for the gluten-free salad or handle it differently.

 

Actually. the notion that blue cheese has gluten is not valid.  I find restaurants go by that old info.  It has been many many years since common blue cheese was made with a culture grown on wheat.  Even then, the mold that is added to the cheese, was added to the cheese.  The mold eats all the wheat up.  That is a very expensive and cumbersome way to make cheap cheese.  I eat blue cheese often without issue.

 

I thought you were still eating some gluten everyday until your tests were finished?  If that is the case, it is likely the gluten from that food that is bothering you.

So should I go back on Gluten before I see this gastroenterologist???? I have already been diagnosed! I actually don't think I was totally off of gluten anyway! There are some hidden things I didn't know about!! I had a salad the other day and it sent me right to the restroom!! Here I foind out the Blue Cheese is glutenized!! I think I remember reading that , but totally forgot!! Really!! How long does it take to be Totally Gluten Free anyway!! ???

If you buy bleu cheese that is made in the US, it should not be a problem but if it comes from Europe, then many still use the old fashioned way of making bleu cheese and it is started on bread.  I found this out at a french restaurant I went to and they use french bleu cheese, which was not gluten free.  But many of them the ones here are!

Karen's right. (she likes when I say that :D )

 

No worries about the blue cheese. I  eat blue cheese all the time. :) I don't live in Europe (but I wish I did LOL)

 

We're giving it to you straight....It is not likely the blue cheese, honest.

 

Hon, here's the thing....with a new diagnosis of celiac, your gut is ravaged right now. Before you start healing, you could also have a dairy intolerance that is often temporary in most celiacs. Could be the dairy does not agree with you? Could be anything.

You may wish to read some info now that you have a firm diagnosis, so these things become less confusing to you.

 

Hang in there! We all had to learn the ropes too.

I thought we could not lick envelopes at the beginning    :huh: (read that somewhere) just  a myth.

Now, I lick them like mad--and offer to lick other people's too if they need help.

    • Matt It makes me feel better knowing I am not alone in this. Gluten sensitivity/celiac seems to effect women more than men too. Your experiance sounds a lot like mine.  Besides trying to figure out what foods were causing my problems, I am getting older, and have developed mild arthritis. I was also diagnosed with adult A.D.D. many years ago. As you know, both are symptoms of celiac!  I also began a new high stress career at the same time my symptoms began. So confusing. I guess that's why its called 'The great imitator'. One bright light is the fact a lot more gluten free foods are coming out now, and some of them are actually quite good! Thanks again and please keep in touch, possibly through Facebook. BTW I see you are in the UK. My heart goes out to those poor young gals in Manchester and their parents. I have a  young daughter as well. 
    • My mini fridges usually freeze my eggs!  Ugh! You can buy hard boiled eggs in packages at some groceries.   lunch meat, canned soups - Progresso has some labelled gluten-free, microwave rice - either frozen or in the regular rice isle - add frozen veggies and chicken lunchmeat or canned beans and salsa A few frozen dinners are gluten-free - amys , gluten free brands like Udis, EVOL, Lean cuisine, etc Bush's baked beans Read the ingredients and labels - they all aren't gluten-free.
    • Those cooked eggs are just fine!  If you want to insure that the frig is colder, add a bucket of ice.  Is used to travel without the benefit of a frig.  I just used a couple of ice buckets to chill milk, or whatever.  It worked.  If you want a hot meal, try Udi's frozen meals.   Not the best, but good for hotel cooking.  Several lunch meats are gluten free too at the market.  
    • I clicked it and got re-directed to c.com  but this time I got the article.  I shouldn't copy the whole thing but here is the conclusion - "In conclusion, in the right clinical setting, symptomatic celiac disease is treatable, but we do not recommend population screening. Further data on the clinical impact of a glutenfree diet on the microbiome and the long-term health consequences in those without celiac disease are needed. The entity NCGS closely overlaps with the functional gastrointestinal disorders, and new evidence suggests that at least in some gluten may not be the culprit despite symptom improvement after beginning a gluten-free diet.We do not recommend a lifelong gluten-free diet for individuals without celiac disease."   Celiac Disease and Nonceliac Gluten or Wheat Sensitivity The Risks and Benefits of Diagnosis Nicholas J.

    • Thanks for the responses. As far as genetic testing goes I wasn't offered that as an option. They ran several labs and everything was normal. We were waiting on celiac to come back and when it did the one marker was high. Not sure who I would talk to about having a genetic test. I did a genesight test for medications and it showed folic acid was questionable. But nothing pertaining to this. Endoscopy is scheduled for Friday.
