I came home from school yesterday and was ready to break out my toaster to make some gluten-free waffles for dinner and my mom stopped me and said that I bought you a Greek salad from where they got there pizza from. Now i have orded from here before and know that I am okay with eating there salad. well, I was finishing the last couple of bites and what do i find at the bottom of my salad a SOGGY CRUTON. I totally flipped and I am really paying for it now. It really sucks.

But needless to say my mom called and spoke with the manager and they made me a new salad and delivered it to my house. Restaurants just really dont understand how careful they need to be. But what is somthing that I could do in this case? I def. dont want this to happen again and I have eaten there many of times before and had no problems.

But I am def. hesitant about eating the new salad that they made me. Anyone have any ideas, maybe I could print out that card and give it to them and maybe that will give them a better understanding. Because they know my family in this pizza parlor, because we order from the qite offen. I need some Help!! thanks :)

P.S. celiac3270 not sure where I was supposed to post this??? hope its in the right spot B)

As much as I'm willing to occasionally deal with eating in a restaurant, I will NEVER eat food someone else ordered for me from a restaurant. (I had to turn my boss down when he did this for me one night a bunch of us worked late. I know he didn't understand, but I'm not going to get sick over it.) If _I_ can't be there to explain the situation, and guage how well the person I talked to understands my request, I ain't eatin' it. ;-) But that's how I deal with the situation... Maybe I'm just a control freak. :-) :-P

I don't think we are control freaks, ok well maybe we are, but it's because we HAVE to be in order to stay safe. I feel the same way. If I didn't order it, I am not eating it!!

Yea I understand your position, but this was my mom and she is extremely carefull and explained everthing to them. I still live at home and she goes to all of my doctors appts. with me and has been there for me the entire time, so it is def. there fault. because when she ordered the food she explained to them and that is why i guess they made me a new salad and delivered it to my house. But she is very knowledable about the diease and understands my needs because I live at home. I just think that the resaurtant just slipped up, but they took responsibility and made me a new one.

I was just looking for an idea on how better educated the pizza parlor, just so that they are extra careful everytime! Thanks :D

    • So... his gp did a genetic test - positive - and has referred him to a gi. His paed and diabetes educator have ordered the genetic test and another coeliac screen for 3 months and then they will decide if he needs to see a specialist because they're still convinced its most likely a false positive. Why test at diagnosis of diabetes if they don't believe the results anyway? Why is this disease so confusing for the medical world?  Anyway we're sticking with the gp and hopefully it won't be too long before he gets into a gi.  It seems that blood tests don't matter in any situation. If they can find any excuse to invalidate them they jump at it.  Makes me so infuriated I just laugh about how I already seem to know more. 
    • Thank you! I have been considering lactose, though I'm reluctant to remove more things from her diet. She has not had the classic lactose intolerance symptoms of diarrhea, gas, or bloating, though I know she could still have trouble with it. She's been on the medication for less than a week, so it's not the cause of her symptoms. I did not call the manufacturer but it is listed as safe on glutenfreedrugs.com (under the brand name periactin). It was prescribed by a pediatric GI who specializes in celiac. The first question my daughter had for the doctor was whether the medication is gluten-free, and she told us it was.   
    • cyclinglady, I think Joseph is hoping to exclude celiac disease.   I feel for him, as I also had a hard time accepting my daughter's celiac.      I had this gene test done hoping our GI doctor made a terrible mistake.   But now I have triple prove that my daughter really does have it! I agree with you and others, that if biopsy confirmed celiac disease, you do have celiac disease. (But on occasion, doctors can be wrong, right?) However, I have a distant relative (not related by blood) who thought she had celiac diease for 10 years (no biopsy done), lived a strict gluten free life style, but still suffered from health issues, ended up in the mayo clinic, and found out that she did not have celiac.    She did not have the celiac gene.
    • Our doctor ordered the Prometheus Celiac Plus test for us.   It is some sort of in depth celiac blood test.   This test report showed  which celiac gene my daughter has.   I think you can ask your GI for a celiac blood test with EMA.   When I asked for the EMA test, we got this Celiac plus results back.   I believe Prometheus is the name of the lab. Our insurance paid for this test.   If your insurance won't pay for it, I know there is a lab in Colorado that offer this test for a few hundred bucks.   You have to google for it.   I forgot their name.
    • Why?  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  But only a few actually develop it.  It is used to exclude celiac disease and not to diagnose it.  There are some outlier genes too that have been discovered recently, so the gene test is not perfect.   My daughter has tested negative on the antibodies test.  She will have to get retested in the future. But we will not get the gene test.  It may impact her ability to get life insurance or maybe even health!  Just something to consider.
