Hello :)

My cute boyfriend is taking me to Yosemite next week and we will be staying in Mariposa, Mammoth - and Tahoe on the way.

Does anyone have any experience with these places that they could share? I'd love any info you could offer! :)

We'll have a cooler with us - but I'm not sure if the rooms will have kitchens or not. Probably not :rolleyes:

Please help :)

Thanks!!

Hey Michelle -

I think I saw it here but someone else posted recently that Yosemite is *very* accomodating about gluten free. Aparantly, you can contact any of the restaurants ahead of time to check but they have some gluten free meals and I think you can even buy Amy's frozen meals at their stores, etc. If I find the post, I'll give you a link.

Wish I could come visit you! It would be fun to meet!

Steph

Thanks Steph! :) I wish I could meet you too! :)

Okay, talked to boyfriend - looks like there will be no microwave in the room. That sucks because I love Amy's stuff!

*AND* we will be going to San Francisco on the way instead of Tahoe. Any suggestions there?

Thanks!!

Mammoth's got a sushi place near the movie theater's that has sushi that's safe (minus the soy sauce, of course). And they've got a regular grocery store and all that...

In SF you have to go to Roys, I don't think you even need to call ahead because they are so accomidating. ONe time they kept bringing out free appetizers until they found one that I could eat (strawberries). Google Roys san francisco and call ahead because it is a very busy restaruant.

Michelle,

I am going to Yosemite next week also! They will have plently of gluten free food available at the Yosemite Lodge (we will be there Monday for dinner), at Curry Village Buffet (we are planning on Tuesday for dinner) and then we are planning lunch at the Food Court on Wednesday. They like to know about a day ahead of time where you will eat, so thay can have lots of gluten-free choices for you. I am so excited about the stay. I am waiting for a return phone call from the head food service manager at Curry Village and I will tell him that more gluten-free people will be heading there way! I'll also ask if I can pass on the phone numbers to you, so you can talk with them directly.

God bless,

Mariann

i went to Yosemite last summer..there was this deli and they gave me turkey slices with a salad and chips

are you going to Lake Tahoe? If so, theres like a million restaurants, especially on the strip, so its easy to find gluten-free food there too.

Yosemite is amazing, I was just there for one day. A little advice, don't go on the hiking trails, i went on the 1 mile hiking trail and it was straight uphill the whole time.. =( took a hour..there aren't as many waterfalls in yosemite as i hear there were decades ago. a lot of them dried up but its an awesome place to visit..

    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.
