Newly Diagnosed And Going On Holiday

Recommended Posts

I have had positive blood results and biopsy done 1 week ago, not getting results for a month. But have decided to go gluten free anyway, suffering awful withdrawal symptoms. However my real worry is we have a holidy of a lifetime booked to Canada and leave on 27th. I have looked at some of the threads on eating out and cant believe how difficult it is going to be. never would have believed that veggies would be cooked in pasta water, is that common practice?

I feel sorry for my husband who was so looking forward to eating out, and now it looks like if we do venture into a resturant im going to have to be a real pain.

What do I ask?

I have emailed ahead to the guest houses and met with a sympathetic response. but it is the rest of the time.

im feeling so rough with the withdrawal that i feel inclined to say go hang and eat gluten whilst away.

any tips would be welcome

Your vacation sounds like a great opportunity to practice the "I have a food allergy..." speech or however you prefer to approach it without being concerned about whether your going to get glutened. In my opinion, relax and enjoy the vacation. When you have been gluten free for a while, then you'll need to be more careful. Good luck with the diagnosis.
