Coeliac Map

6 posts in this topic

I just discovered this little gem a couple of days ago.

www.coeliacmap.com

It's essentially an interactive map of gluten free venues which you can add to by adding venues of your own, and reviews of your own or other peoples venues.

It also works in conjunction with an Android phone app available for free on the android marketplace. The app allows you to do everything you can do on the website from the phone too. That is, review or add a venue, and search for venues nearby. It also uses your GPS to find out where you are and automatically provide you with a list of venues.

I used the app today in Edinburgh and it was a godsend as an instant source of reliable suggestions of where to go and eat or have a coffee etc. You can even navigate to it directly from the app itself. I even added a couple of places to the map whilst sitting in them, drinking my coffee and eating my lovely banana cake

I'd really recommend it to anyone with a gluten problem and I'd encourage you all ( in the UK ) to at least use the website ( it's obviously still in it's early stages but works fine ). It can only improve as more people use and add to the database, so get out there and get mapping venues!

There are a lot of venues listed in the rest of Europe too, and I think I spotted a couple down under, but it seems focussed on the UK just now, simply because of the location of the developer and the spelling of Coeliac in the marketplace. It doesn't seem to be restricted geographically at all so I'm sure if folks from opposite the pond to me ( :) ) used it, it would become one heck of a resource.

You're right!! The map is such a good idea and can only get better the more people that know about it and add to it. It'll certainly make life easier when out and about. :)

I don't eat out much in Glasgow, but my daughter likes DiMaggios in Royal Exchange Square. It is very good for coeliacs. The first time we asked for gluten free, I heard the chef clap his hand and announce that as he was preparing gluten free meal no-one was to come into a certain part of the kitchen. He then asked to speak to the waiting staff for our table and informed them they did not take anything to the table which was not given to them by him.

    • i usually buy pre made falafels as the majority i've found are gluten free and vegan. they are really good on a wrap with hummus, lettuce, tomato/salads or even the same on a sandwich. i also eat them with a salad or as a side with a curry. the only recipe i've made from scratch is from http://www.hotforfoodblog.com/recipes/2015/05/04/baked-falafel-sliders-with-maple-tahini-sauce also their cheese sauce is really great, i make it with sweet potato and almond milk, its so easy and you can swap or leave out a few ingredients and it tastes just a good. i eat cheese but i still make that to have with tacos or nachos as well.
    • Hello thanks for answering , yes they did a biopsy , received the results and can't understand a thing in medical terms . Is the waiting that is irritating me . 😒  There was written among other things that the villus architecture is well preserved is this only sentence that confuses me . I will ask of course my doctor just wondered if any of you knows what it means . As for celiac blood work panel I will ask . I Know that they did some blood tests which I had to wait two weeks as here some blood tests they have to make them outside our island .
    • Hi  I live in the US. we use Corn flour and amaranth flour to make roti. There is any other flour to make roti. bcoz amaranth is a little expensive for us. and being punjabi we eat roti a lot and parantha too. so if anyone knows in US. from where we can get flour to make roti on cheap price. or any other website from where we could get all flour on good price.
    • Well, I would strongly recommend seeing a doctor (maybe an endo if your PCP is not thyroid savvy, but I have always used my PCP).   Are you sure you had the hypo-related thyroid antibodies tests (3 of them)?     It looks like you are hypothyroid.  You probably need thyroid replacement, but I am not a doctor!    Thyroid replacement will help you feel better.  My TSH is best at around a 1.  Anything over a 5 and I am wearing flannel PJ's and napping.  Ask for a physical examination for your thyroid to check for nodules and enlargement too.  You can be hypo, but not have Hashi's.  Get that endo appointment, if you can.    
    • On a gluten-free diet, my low iron resolved within months with supplementation.    I would ask your doctor to re-check your ferritin levels and antibodies at the three month mark since you can not judge by symptoms.  I would also ask for a bone scan.  I fractured two vertebrae doing NOTHING two months into my celiac disease diagnosis.  Found out I had osteoporosis.   I would think that if you were dairy intolerant, you would experience all the classic symptoms of gas, bloating, etc.  If you are not, I would not worry about dairy.  Not all celiacs are dairy intolerant.   Go eat some cheese!   Follow-up testing recommendations: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/
