6 posts in this topic

Next weekend I am going to a spanish emergin camp for the weekend and this will be the first time my parents won't be able to talk to the chefs because they don't speak a word of spanish :). I was just wondering how I could pack enough food and I am only in 8th grd. so i don't know a huge amout of spanish and I am scared that if i get sick then i will have to go home any ideas for good foods that don't have to be refrigerated>?!~!

I have live w/ celiac disease since 20 mnths so I know what i can and can't eat but talking to a chef in a different language will be tough. I am also going to Mexico with my spanish class this summer for 2 wks so i need help with that too

Maybe it would be a good idea to bring your own skillets and cookware and such, if possible....I am sure that if you were to check that they will be using Cast Iron skillets which retain bits of all that has been cooked on them. Also I will see if I can get a thing on the celiacs warning card, but you might try typing in something to warn them on one of these translator sites. Babelvista is one I believe...

Do not be too worried though, stress and worry are never good for anyone much less for someone who is already having to be cautious.

Good Luck,

Disturbed

If you have a Spanish class at your school ask a teacher for help with the translation. Sometimes those sites don't translate correctly. But after you get help with a translation put it on the computer and print many out and hand them to the waiter.

Don't forget

Por favor (please)

and Gracias (thank you)

Have fun

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
