    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Ursa Major

I'll Be Gone For A Week

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just in case somebody wonders where I am, my husband and I are leaving very early tomorrow morning (Saturday, Feb. 16th) to go to Queretaro, Mexico until Sunday, Feb. 26th.

A friend of ours was transferred to Mexico for five years last year. He is an engineer working for Michelin, and the plant he was working at was shut down. It is hard to find good engineers, so they transferred him.

His wife is desperate for visitors from Canada! So, we are doing her the favour and will make the great sacrifice to spend a week with them. :lol:;):P

Being gluten-free shouldn't be a problem, since we are staying in a private house, and Judy and I will go shopping together for food. Plus, I told her what I can and can't eat beforehand. I hope I'll be just fine.

I'll give you all a report when I get back.

Enjoy your trip Ursa!!! I am so jealous that you will be in warm weather... although you deserve it more being from Canada than I do in North Carolina. But still, I would love some hot weather right now.

Anyway, eat some guacamole for me and have a safe trip!!! You are a great friend to make such a sacrifice! ;)

Thank you guys! Actually, where we are going it isn't hot in the winter. At night it is supposed to go down to 5 degrees Celsius (41 degree Fahrenheit), and the warmest time of the day will be anywhere from 17 degrees C (62.6 degrees F) to 25 degrees (77 degrees F). And it isn't humid, either (about 62% humidity).

Mind you, I suffer in humid heat and these are perfect temperatures for me.

I do too Ursa--that climate would be perfect for me too. Humidity, when it's high, actually feels like it's stifling me.

See you when you get back!

Have fun!

I've never been to Queretaro, but I lived in Guanajuato which is, from what I hear, fairly similar. Having said that, I would bring a wind resistant jacket of some sort because there can be really biting winds, especially at night.

    What are your iron results?  Was ferritin (iron stores) taken?  Are you actually anemic (low hemoglobin)?  The results you posted are your Immunoglobulins.  Looks like your IgE is high, but then it is Spring and allergy season is supposed to be pretty bad this year (at least in the US).  What riggers your allergies (e.g. cats, horses, mold, etc.)? Have other autoimmune issues been ruled out that could cause tendinitis or vertigo?    
    The EMA test is the most expensive of the celiac blood tests because it is not machine run, but done by humans.  A lab mistake could have been made.  With negative genes, the rest of the panel and symptoms eliminated, chances are you do not have celiac disease, but you can always get retested in six months, if you have symptoms or think celiac disease could be an issue.   Making dietary changes can have adverse reactions to anyone.  Consuming too much of a good thing can easily make you sic
Hey there ! hope all is well for you.  I’ve been struggling with all sorts of tenidinitis and vertigo issues so I haven’t been on the computer much, but I would love any advice if possible. I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
