  1. Traveling to Mexico and LA

    Thank you all for your great suggestions! Will take all of it on board
  2. Hello, I'm traveling to Mexico and LA in January and I wanted to see if people can recommend me some safe gluten free places to eat, and any other tips. I'm going to: Tulum Playa Del Carmen Cancun Isla Mujeres Los Angeles I would really appreciate a list of safe restaurants and also if you could just let me know whether I'm in for a rough ride or whether Mexico is a pretty celiac-friendly place! Thank you for your help!
  3. Thank you everyone for your replies! I think I'll go get a blood test and see if I can get some indication whether my nutrient levels are low etc.
  4. Hi everyone, Is there documented link between celiac disease and gym/sport-related injuries? I'm a recently diagnosed celiac and I'm wondering if the reason I have so many injuries (which won't go away even after months of rehab) is the celiac disease. Basically, I have ongoing pain in a number of areas in my body (left shoulder, right hamstring, left Achilles). The specialist and physio I've seen both think it is tendinitis, but I've been doing the recommended rehab and stretches for it for about 10 months and it's not going away. The injuries started around August 2016. Around March 2017 (so, well after the injuries), I started getting really sick and I was diagnosed with celiac disease. I've been gluten free since April (4 months) and the 'sickness' symptoms are gone but my injuries are still here. It kind of feels like every time I do exercise, something new goes off in my body. And I'm not training like an idiot or anything - before this I was training for 10 years without any injuries. At this point I am kindof hoping to god it's because of the celiac disease and that the injuries will sort themselves out once I finish healing (which I understand takes over 6 months?). Otherwise I have no idea what to do because I've been to the sports-doctor and physio a trillion times, I've spent a million hours doing rehab and there's basically no improvement. I just wanted to know whether anyone else has experienced the same thing and if you have any advice
