Hi there,

I'm traveling to Exuma which is a small island south of Nassau. Does anyone know about the style of cooking and whether they use corn and rice rather than flour for beading fries foods? Any ideas about the types of foods the restaurants will have available? Thank you in advance!

Hi Allie - did you end up going to Exuma last year? I'm looking at planning a family vacation there and was curious if you found gluten free options. Thanks so much!

For future travelers, I went to Exuma and EVERYTHING is fried.  It is really hard to eat out there without getting a salad every time.  To be honest there isn't a whole lot of fruit on the island either.  I brought my own gluten-free bread, oatmeal and pasta and I'm really glad I did.  Went to one restaurant and ordered the lobster thinking there is no way that would be bad, but it came breaded and deep fried.  The island itself is spectacular, but eating there gluten free is extremely difficult.  Especially because the one thing everyone says you have to try there is deep fried conch.  Loved the island, but pack an extra suitcase for your own food.

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
