Are you concerned about coffe or tea being contaminated with gluten? What kind of "fancy coffee"? Do you not even bring it up (gluten issue) at the restaurant? Ideally, I would like to not mention it.

Yes, but I feel so sad... Thinking how he will go through teenage years... College? Dating? I am just driving myself insane. On one hand, I am happy that he is feeling better, but this diagnosis entails so much... I can handle it, but the idea of my kid having this... I cannot sleep, cannot eat... Anybody going through this?

I wanted to give you a quick update... I fed my son complete gluten-free diet for a week and he gained 4lbs... I don't know how to rect... He had a completely normal celiac panel test a little less than a year ago... Does it mean he is a celiac if he responded to the diet? Could he be just sensitive? I cannot stand an idea of him going through what I did... Appreciate your thoughts! TIA!!!!

I will definitely have his thyroid checked... Interesting... It seems like most kids whose parent is a celiac develop it at some point if their lives... Or am I mistaken? My GI assured me that chances f them developing it are very slim... Like less than 10%. Now after reading your posts, it seems like almost 100%.

In Topic: Vacation? Travel?

I buy food at natural coops and cook while I am away. I bring grain free granola to have with eggs for breakfast. I often premake food and heat it in my car oven. It isn't always convenient, but it is a little adventurous. I am one of the only people I know that comes back from vacation with less than I went with. We toss out empty food boxes as we go!

I took canned meat on a plane trip. I brought the kind with pull tabs. Hard boiled eggs travel fairly well in an clean egg carton. My own homemade muffins or wraps often come with.

I imagine if you cook your own overseas you could find meat and eggs at the store.


Yes, that is what I have been doing-cooking on vacation... However, I dream of going to Europe and it would be nice to sample out their restaurants while there... It is all part of the experience...But nt sure if that is an option
