Ciao, Veronica. I just finished posting this under the other Italy thread a moment ago but want to add here, too, how much I love Italy (we currently live in Canada) and how wonderful it is to find great gluten-free restaurants, etc. I feel safe eating there because people are so aware and knowledgable.

We will be in Venice in a few weeks. Can you recommend gluten-free gelato places and restaurants? We will be staying in Mestre this time as we need to be close to the airport but will be spending time in Venice as well. We are very familiar with Venice. I am also trying to find a massage therapist as I have chronic pain. It would help to have a massage the day before we fly back to Canada. So far no one has responded to my inquiries.

Ciao,

sure I will give you names of restaurants and gelato places. I also would like to tell you that if you go to the pahrmacy you will find a lots of good items, such as pasta ( the best is asolane brand, coookies and snacks ). The only problem is that they are a little expensive for you, because of the dollar change. As far as a massage therapist I will try to give you some name.

I will get back to you tonight

Ciao

Veronica

Ciao Veronica,

My name is Alyssa and I am going to Italy in 9 days! I've heard that Venice is one of the worst parts of Italy for a celiac to find safe foods to eat... is this true? I don't speak italian (although I have learned the phrase "Io sono celiaca" and 'senza glutine per favore" as well as various other menial phrases (e.g. grazie). I'm a student that will be backpacking through Venice for a couple of days.

I had read that everyone is super aware of celiac, so I wasn't planning on searching out restaurants/ places where I can eat ahead of time... I was just going to say that phrase and wing it.... I've read that polenta and risoto are staples of Venice and that those are both gluten-free...

Grazie!!!!

Ciao Alyssa,

Not sure whether Veronica is still here - I have not seen her post for ages. I've now been to Venice twice since gluten free (at least ten times before that). We now go twice a year. Venice is not bad for finding gluten free but I suggest you do your research first. Venice is very touristy so most people will understand English. However, whenever I travel to a foreign country, I take restaurant cards along in each language and have it taken to the chef. Grom has gluten free gelato but it is not gluten free everywhere, even some of the fruit flavours, so just be cautious with that. The vendors will tell you, though. I had gluten free pizza in November. If you go to higher-end places they can prepare things for you - just be clear on the cross contamination bit. And yes, risotto and polenta are usually safe - still ask to be sure. It depends on the stock they use (i.e. purchased or homemade). Go to the Rialto Market to pick up fresh fruit and veg. Or another market or even supermarket.

Other parts of Italy are definitely better known for their food than Venice (because it is so touristy and tourists unfortunately are catered to) but there are excellent spots to eat. In what area are you staying?

    • 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/
