Hi Gina & Munchkinette! Nice to meet local folks. The Yahoo group is probably the best way to connect but it's nice to know there are other locals here on the forum as well.

BTW, tried to order the gluten-free pizza from Pizza Rustica last night and they don't deliver to my neighborhood. Too bad I don't have a car. Guess I'll have to go and eat in.

Grrr.

HI!

Rustica has gluten-free? Probably not dairy-free, too, though, huh?

As far as sharing restaurants - I have been sticking with one, mainly:

Luka's Tap Room & Lounge in Oakland

They have chef's that now know me and how to cook gluten and casein-free...In fact, one came over to shake my hand and greet me when I last arrived! I felt like a celeb ;)

Here's a link:

HI!

They have a non-dairy cheese you can choose, but it has casein in it. You can also choose to not have any cheese at all, of course. I'm pretty sure that the crust is dairy-free but you should check with them.

OMG Luka's is one of my favorites! The thing is, what I really like there is their french fries, and I don't think they're made in a dedicated fryer (They serve other fried stuff like crab cakes) because last time I ate them, I got sick. So no more Luka's for me since the other stuff on the menu is too expensive (I do love their green beans, though)

It's great to know that their cook will understand if I tell them I'm gluten-free. Maybe I"ll give them another chance but this time be more specific about being gluten-free.

What do you order there, generally?

    • I will just stick with christopherbean company, the fact the main sales rep I talk to has celiac in the family means a lot, she said they use it all the time. I tested some of the iffiest flavored version grounds for gluten all negative. NOT had any issues drinking all kinds of coffee from their company in the past few months. FACT the flavored ones actually taste like what they say and just need a bit of sweetener is making me a coffee addict again lol. Clearing a pot a day so far and looking forward to each day wondering what flavor I should do >.> today was banana foster coffee, its 7 am and i already am on my third cup. If your still in doubt just buy their beans and grind your self.  I am grateful for the guy that started this thread as he ended up motivating me to start my campaign to find a gluten-free flavored coffee, where I ended up emailing several companies, I still saved 2 of the replies from companies saying DO NOT drink our coffee if you have celiac. Sorta funny how that brought up the issue and proved some points about gluten in the coffee industry.
    • Ch88 yes im  glad i had the blood test but it was found by accident so bit of a shock when i found out. God knows how long i had it but i always remember as a child suffering from stomach pain alot but back in the eighties it was unheard off!  But if you or any other membets can offer advice on what happens after the biopsy it would be much appreciated.
    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal.
