In Topic: Doctor Said It Is Not Celiac, Likely Ibs

02 July 2012 - 07:13 AM

Although I have tested positive for celiac I have continued searching why I have been the only family member affected. I have two 2nd cousins which are on a gluten free diet because of celiac symptoms and have been successful. What I have found is "IgA Deficiency." If you are deficient in this antibody this can alter your celiac test results. Certainly something to check in to. My recommendation: if you have a doctor that is not searching for answers keep looking for a doctor who will. Took me a while to find a doctor but has been worth the search!!!

In Topic: Anyone Sail Carnival Recently?

23 June 2012 - 12:33 PM

I sailed on Carnival Destiny in April!!! Best vacation EVER!!! And dare to say the best vacation for someone on a gluten free diet. Had a great time, staff were attentive and if you have a gluten free diet - you become VERY SPECIAL!!! I did eat at the buffet and just watched what I ate. Each area has different foods and plenty of each. I had no issues at all.

The dining room dining - was excellent!! There is no way to describe how they cater to you. You eat in the same dining hall (the one assigned to you) each night and I even reqeusted the same waiter (Daniel from El Salvador - we loved loved loved him). I was also assigned a lady to deal with my menu. After the first night I would plan my meals for the next day. You can eat all three meals in the dining hall!!! The 2nd night I ordered a meal and then a backup meal just to make sure the chef could prepare that meal gluten free. When the waiter brought me my food they brought both meals!!! Gives you an idea of why I can 10 pounds on the cruise!!!

The last day on the ship they set a man (eating alone) at our table what was also celiac. Gave me a chance to chat with him which was really nice.

I hope you enjoy your trip.
