About Me

Diagnosed by biopsy 20 plus years ago.

Participated in research leading to blood tests.

  1. I went to Las Vegas, NV U.S.A. We walked up to a hostess and mentioned gluten free. She asked if I have Celiac. Then she actually took me to the kitchen window to observe how they handle the meat and keep the entire kitchen separated with spices that are gluten free never touched by anyone who also...

  6. Ravioli!!!! I'd die for a gluten-free ravioli. (Only kidding....I could actually make them myself except that I have serious muscle, bone and nerve damage from poor understanding of this disease decades ago when I was Finally diagnosed at the brink of death.
  7. My biggest frustration is restaurants that have a caveat at the bottom of the menu, "We can not be held responsible for 'normal' cross contamination that occurs during the preparation of foods in the kitchen". If raw chicken can be kept from contaminating everything else, so can gluten free. Also...
