I spoke with a manager at our local Chicago cheesecake factory yesterday and he had just received a phone call from corporate advising him that in 6 months Cheesecake Factory would be launching a new gluten free menu.

That's is interesting. I loved the Cheesecake Factory. I just hope they take proper precautions while preparing the meals. Who knows when it's new. I probably wouldn't eat there for a few months after they first started... haha.

We went to the Cheesecake Factory in Kansas City, MO for dinner on Sat., July 31. We specifically mentioned that my husband is very sensitive to Gluten and please make sure his order is gluten free when we ordered. My husband ordered the steak and steamed broccoli and asked for no seasoning but salt and pepper. The steak was great. However, when my husband worked on the broccoli in the separate dish, he saw a piece of noodle in the bottom of the dish. So, we asked for the manager about how exactly the broccoli was prepared. He told us that the broccoli was actually boiled in the noodle pot, but he could ASSURE us that my husband shouldn't feel a thing due to his experience of serving other Gluten free customers the same broccoli. He didn't apologize for the mistake at all but told us that we could call back to the restaurant if my husband did feel ill the next day. I was very upset by his attitude of careless and neglect. My husband started feeling fatigue and foggy headed on the way home. He had a important business meeting on Monday and he needed to prepare for the seminar he was giving. At that point, he had no condition to do any preparation. I filed a complaint through the corporate website. All we wanted is for them to aware of the problem and admit their mistake. How else are they going to learn about Gluten?! How can we trust the "Gluten Free" menu if they didn't know what it mean?!

I wish I had known before you went. That one messed up regular orders that aren't gluten-free so I would not expect them to handle special requests well.

I've always been led to believe that Cheesecake Factorys were not safe for any celiac because they refused to offer up any gluten free items. Your husband is much more daring then I ever have been in my 6 1/2 years as a Celiac...especially if I know that I have something important to do that week..you wouldn't catch me eating out anywhere! It's nice that they are considering a gluten free menu but until they do a complete overhaul of their kitchen and how it operates, I doubt I'll try it.

We went to Cheesecake Factory today for my son's birthday. When we were seated I asked if they had a gluten-free menu and the waitress said they didn't have anything gluten-free. I asked, specifically, nothing gluten-free? She said besides the salads, dry, they couldn't offer me anything. I was so put off by this statement, "they couldn't offer me anything." I asked about the salad dressing, ranch and she said every one of their dressings had gluten. She asked me if I really needed gluten-free, I wanted to get up and walk out but didn't because I wasn't going to spoil my 6 year olds day. I ended up ordering the Ahi salad, dry. It contained lettuce, tomato, avocado and ahi. It was good, even with EVOO and Balsamic but the lack of help just about killed me. On a $100 bill, she got a small tip. I get every restaurant won't provide a gluten-free menu but the lack of menu support by the staff is the part that kills me.

Wouldn't you rather they be honest then attempt to help you out and you get sick from it? I know that I would!

    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.      
    • Nice to know that Disney makes an effort to take care of people with allergies or special diets (like gluten free!): https://publicaffairs.disneyland.com/walt-disney-parks-resorts-receives-honors-allergy-friendly-fare/
    • Wow, I also had pyloric stenosis that was misdiagnosed for some weeks as an infant (and almost died from it).  I also have Raynauld’s and I started following celiac diet, finding an immediate improvement of my symptoms.  I thought I was the only one that had all 3 of these diagnoses.   Interesting.
    • If you are lucky enough to travel in the Spanish-speaking world, just about anywhere you go, you will very likely run into a some version of chicken and rice, or ‘Arroz con Pollo’ as it appears on countless menus. This Cuban-style version relies on annatto oil to give it a red color. You can make your own annatto oil by putting achiote chili seeds in vegetable oil and heating it up for a few minutes over the stove. Cool and store. This version of chicken and rice is tasty, gluten-free and keeps well in the freezer. View the full article
    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
