Hi again, Veronica!

I do not recall where you typed information on pizza places and other gluten-free restaurants in old Venice and Mestre. Sorry - would it be too much of a bother to post or PM me? Actually, it may be good to post here for others' benefit as well.

Thanks lots!

In Venice we have just one real gluten free restaurant; then we have places we often go and for this reason they know how to behave.....and they are safe....Pizza place there is only one On Lido, which is an island in front of Venice. Both Lido and Venice, we have gelato places......Always at your disposale for any information

Ciao Veronica

Yes - I know all about it although I have never been in Venice during that time.

We had a fantastic recent trip to Croatia and Venice! Our next trip is already booked for May. :D

Glad you had a great time, especially after your health problems beforehand :) I've never been to Italy but it's on my list!! Next year's holiday already planned, but not booked, so maybe the following year.

Thanks lots! I said this on another thread but I managed to get four seats in a row on the Toronto to Frankfurt flight both there AND return! It was amazing. I got to lie down. :D

I really like Italy a lot but I do confess I love Croatia more. Biased, I know, but I prefer less crowds and chaos and commercialism. Not that everywhere in Italy is that way (my favourite part is Sicily) but many areas are. It is still pretty amazing, though. And I firmly believe everyone should see Venice at least once. :)

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
