  1. If you are able to eat dairy, Against the Grain is hands down the best gluten-free pizza (and I'm from N.Y. coincidentally:-)) http://againstthegraingourmet.com/store-locator Regarding parties, or any social gathering for that matter, I always eat before hand and get a glass of wine or...
  2. I have the same problem at work. I pack my lunch in a columbia travel cooler with ice packs, make sure to keep the cover loosely on when microwaving and wash all my dishes when I get home. I eat in my car or at my desk everyday and read a book.
  3. Hard cider is usually what I get when I go out. Most all are gluten free. I find most bars carry Angry Orchard and Woodchuck (both very sweet). I'm sensitive to grain alcohol, even if it is distilled so if I do drink hard liquor, I go with potato or corn based vodkas (such as Tito's) with cranberry...
  4. For parties, I usually use the Betty Crocker gluten free mixes since they're quick and easy. They have a lot of good recipes on their site too. I love the vanilla cupcakes with caramel sea salt icing. http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/health-and-diet/gluten-free/gluten-free-cakes My...
  5. I had the same symptoms from gluten. This is exactly what would happen to me before I was diagnosed with celiac. I was living by myself at the time and would pass out in the living room, bathroom, kitchen, etc from the pain. I would break out in an intense hot cold sweat and be doubled over in...
  6. I use the DineGF app and it has an international search feature. This restaurant came up when I searched on Venice. It had a very good review. Da Poggi Rio terra de La Madalena, 2103 Cannaregio, Venice, Italy Here's a link to the app too: https://glutenfreetravelsite.com/mobileresources...
  7. I'm seeing a functional medicine doctor as well. They can run an Alcat test to determine. It is pricey though. I tried the elimination method and was able to figure out some though. Cutting out processed food helps, and other major allergens one at a time, such as dairy, eggs, soy etc.
  8. Hi zengess, I feel your pain.. my family doesn't get it either. My husband is very supportive though, so that helps a lot. I volunteer to host all holiday dinners if possible so I know the food is safe. If I go to someone else's house, I bring my own food and serve myself first, or eat beforehand...
  9. Thanks Renaye! Just saw your response now.
  10. I believe Dextrose can be made from wheat. I think Maltodextrin is usually derived from corn, but can also be made from wheat. I find it's easier to just not eat a lot of processed food, or only eat it if it's certified gluten free or from a trusted brand.
  11. Hi Tracy, I take Zantac with no problems. Also, liquid Gaviscon works well for me and is listed on their website as gluten free.
  12. Thanks Renaye. I have vitreous detachment so I'll have to check with my ophthalmologist to see if it's ok to go on. Does the Plaquenil treat the symptoms, or stop then from progressing, or both? Do you have to get frequent lab work if you're on it?
  13. Hmm, that's interesting. I eat a lot of high oxalate foods too, so that may explain it. Thanks! I should probably start taking a calcium supplement with my D3.
  14. I take sublingual B12 and D3. That really boosted my levels. It doesn't have to go through your digestion. You just put it under your tongue. I buy D3 in liquid drops and B12 lozenges.
  15. Ok, thanks! I can't seem to keep up with what's associated with what anymore. .
