Re: “Fake food allergies on the rise

It really shouldn't be that difficult to not put croutons on a salad. It's not an extreme demand. Neither is it an extreme demand for the seasoning to be left off of a slab of meat. That something shouldn't be a problem, though, doesn't make it a certainty.

I don't go out often, and I miss that social aspect. I do go to places that do train their staff on how to handle food safely for those of us who can either become very ill or die from an oopsie.

Re: “Fake food allergies on the rise

Celiac disease has dozens of possible symptoms associated with it, many not gastro. I have CD (properly diagnosed), and I do not want gluten on my plate. I tell waiters that I have an allergy, because they tend take intolerances less seriously. My most serious symptoms are neurological. Less than a bite of something containing gluten will have me falling down like I'm drunk within a half hour and dropping things. My behavior changes; I become nasty and paranoid. This is followed by a migraine of hellish proportions lasting 18 to 72 hours complete with vomiting past the point of having anything left. To keep myself safe on the odd occasion that I risk going out, I'll continue to say I have allergies. Non-celiac gluten intolerance can have just as severe symptoms. Intolerances are not something to take lightly.
