In Topic: Gluten Free Honeymoon Help!

08 November 2012 - 08:48 PM

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!

My ex husband has a timeshare in Aruba, my son,17 yrs old, has celiacs and goes there every summer. He said it's actually to eat there because he can eat all the grilled meat and vegies. They just don't use marinades on it. They stay at the Playa Linda in Aruba. Happy Wedding!!

In Topic: Genetic Testing

Anyone done genetic testing for celiac? My daughter has it and I'd like to have my son tested to see if he has the gene. My insurance doesn't cover it. How expensive is it? Is there an at home kit? Any experiences with it?

My son had genetic testing done for celiacs. Our insurance did cover it, but it couldn't be done at a regular lab, we had to go to the hospital lab that does the prometheus test for celiac.

In Topic: Ongoing Pain Despite gluten-free Diet

I'm going to assume that you've also been gluten free for only two weeks since your diagnosis. It can take many months to see significant improvement, and for some people it takes years. It takes time for the damage to repair itself, and in the meantime you may start to feel slightly better, and some symptoms will probably clear up faster than others. I've been gluten free for almost six months, and still have some lingering issues.

It's also possible that you're still making rookie mistakes. It takes time to get used to the diet, and find all of the hidden sources of gluten. This forum is a great resource to find help though. It has been indispensable for me!


My son 17, has been gluten free for over a year and a half now. His pain and cramping only went away a few months ago. It takes time to heal. Are you taking any natural supplements to help the healing process?
