bjaded added a topic in Gluten-Free TravelGluten Free Honeymoon Help!Hi all!
My fiancé and I are trying to work on planning our honeymoon! Yay! We are thinking somewhere Caribbean. Does anyone have any suggestions for a resort/country (we truly are open to anything) that is pretty good at accommodating celiacs? The last thing I want to do is be sick on our honeymoon!
I am going to start contacting some resorts but I thought I would start here first. Thank ya'll!

bjaded added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsNew To Gluten FreeGood morning all! I am 22 years old and 99.9% sure I have a gluten intolerance. I was born with a lactose intolerance and quite honestly I've always had tummy problems. (bloating, constipation, gas, diarrhea etc.) For the past year I've wondered if I had gluten problems but everything came to a head this month. I was sick immediately after eating anything with gluten. I developed stabbing pains in my stomach and headaches. There were times I would have to leave my desk at work 4 times or more do to an upset stomach.
I started doing research and kept a food journal and took pictures of my swollen tummy after eating gluten. I noticed with in 30 mins I would have awful symptoms. This week I have been eating gluten free to the best of my ability (only gluten free foods! hopefully I'm not accidentally digesting it.) But this is the best that I have felt in weeks!
My fiance still wants me to get testing because he is concerned but I know they are not all 100% conclusive. I've thought about just a dietitian. Where do I go from here? I'm not crazy am I? ha!
Thank you for your help!!
