I know this is obviously auto-correct, but I am cracking up!

 

Edit:  Apparently the San Diego Padres actually play at petco park.  Woof Woof!   LOL

Unfortunately, they don't allow dogs except in the park within the park while games are not in play.

 

There are, however, gluten-free dogs being served ... ok ... that sounds wrong too!  Lol :)

This was for som e of the stadiums last year. Haven't seen one for this year. Out stadium sells, wine, mixed drinks, Red Bridge beer, popcorn from a popcorn only stand, ice creams, frozen lemonade so peanuts, chips, some candy, hotdogs ( no bun ) if you go to the grills not the main concession stands.

Also, our ball field lets you being food. If yours doesn't, get in touch with the bosses and they can give you a note to allow some food in. Don't bring in things with the note that you could buy - like a coke. That's just tacky.

I am not sure if Fenway has any gluten-free stuff.  Maybe Gemini knows.

 

The Mets' CITIFIELD has a gluten free snack bar. They sell gluten free dogs, burgers, sausages, I believe.

 

I saw it last summer. ( I say that I "saw it" and did not sample anything from it because I admit, I was too full from breakfast at Freidman's

where I ate a G F bagel and a full breakfast with bacon, etc. and I was a total pig about it ). lol

 

I did not notice anything like that here at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie where we watch the spring training. No G F beer or anything.

I ate a lot of Italian Ice, though.  :D 

 

And yes, you can bring in food if you wish, but no bevs. They check your little cooler bags

I snuck in some mini vodkas (you know like they serve on airplanes?)  and bought seltzer. Not paying $9.00 for a drink. That's robbery during season down here! shameful.

 

How, you ask? No bag? No coat? You don't wanna know where it was hidden.

Fenway has a gluten-free stand. They have Fenway Franks and individually-wrapped buns, plus cookies and a few other things. Also, individual mustard and ketchup packets so you don't have to use the main pumps that everyone touches to their wheat buns. It's a separate push-cart-type stand, so it may not always be in the same place. But it's great that it's separate and just one person handles everything, so you don't have to worry about whether they just served a wheat product to someone else.

One of the concession areas also serves wine. I have no idea whether there's gluten-free beer, as I've always hated beer and was not tempted to look for it. Go Sox!

So, what do they charge for the gluten free stuff?  I have to say I never go to ball games, ever.  Not interested, although I do root for my home team, always.  I just don't have the patience to sit through a game...any game......and I would never buy anything to eat there because of the price.  I heard for a hot dog and beer at Fenway they charge over $10.00. It could be more by now. :o   I just cannot in good conscience pay that much for something when I know I am being totally ripped off.  Same with the movies on the few occasions when I might actually go.....never in a million years will I pay $12.00 for a small soda and a small popcorn. :ph34r:

Well, at Petco, and the reason I posted -- the gluten-free beer was the same price as "regular" beer and at every single beer concession stand.  Still stadium prices, but at least there was no UPcharge for gluten-free.  I don't personally drink beer at the park.  I drink red wine, which is gluten-free and also, conveniently located at every concession stand.

 

We have a strictly gluten-free concession, that Petco has had for several years, with dogs and snacks -- haven't visited it this season because I'm still toting my own food into the park.

 

Will report back with gluten-free snack shack report on May 24th -- retro jersey give-away night -- yep, those of us that are "thrifty" or simply cheap shop tixs by the promotional nights ;)

The beer at Kaufman ( KC Royals) is the same as any bottled beer. Outrageous, yes. But it is so rare that I can go and actually get food items like a normal person. They haven't had any specific gluten-free stuff - so the ice cream, popcorn , etc is the same price. I don't buy concession stand popcorn - it's much better and no cc risk at the popcorn cart.

Yankee Stadium has a gluten-free stand in the Main Hall with hot dogs, sausages and Udi's buns.  They added Morningstar Veggie burgers this year - I assume it comes with a gluten-free bun. 

 

Also, they have Red Bridge at most of thethe Beers of the World stands.  I was in the 3rd tier and unfortunately had to go down to the Main Level to find it on opening day.

I've spent time with you. If  "normal" means hilarious, you're very normal.

Looked up gluten free at Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers) and as usual the Windsor Star newspaper (Canada) ran the story from last summer about gluten free options!

 

It is still advised to call ahead 313-471-2230 for dining options.  (I would go to the web site first)

    • Hi Michael and welcome The celiac diagnosis process can be a little confusing. Some time ago I tried to put together some info and links that may be of help:    The key point would be to stay on gluten until you and your doctors are satisfied that celiac has been excluded. In your case that may include another test with a more complete panel as CyclingLady says above. If you go gluten free independently during this time you risk invalidating the results and adding to uncertainty. The second suggestion would be that should you succeed in eliminating celiac as a diagnosis then you have nothing to lose from trying the gluten free diet. I tested negative on blood and endoscopy, but removing gluten resolved or greatly improved a whole load of symptoms including anxiety, depression and that feeling of not being right that you outline above.  I say greatly improved because I can still suffer from anxiety or depression, as anyone can, but if I do, they're nowhere near as severe as they were when I was consuming gluten.  In the meantime, one thing you could do is to keep a food journal to see if you can track any relation between what you eat and how you feel. It's good practice for if you later try the gluten free diet and you never know what you may learn.  This is a good site full of friendly help and advice. I hope you get the help you need  
    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
