Staying At Relatives...

Okay, we're going on vacation to our relatives house for 4 days...it's not the cleanest house (not dirty either), but has lots of crumbs...what do you bring when you're going for an extended stay to eat? I thought of cereal...but what else?

I'm cheap and I'd rather bring everything I need than have to buy it there.

I eat a lot of fruit and eggs. I either bring my own pan or stick to one of their pans (that is safe for me to use) and am the only one to use it for my stay.

I have read that Teflon pans are unsafe. Why? If you clean them in super hot water and soap, wouldn't that remove gluten?

The problem is that Teflon pans get scratches and gluten can get stuck in the scratches and be hard to remove. I don't know what the amount is that can be left as residue in these scratches but for myself just don't use them anymore. I did, however, use a cast iron pan at my uncle's house and got really sick off of that (they use soy sauce a lot).

I think it's better to be safe than to be sorry...

I bring my own pot, spoon and colander when I travel. Bring along a bag of Tinkyada pasta. Teflon also releases toxic poisons. Isn't there a lawsuit against DuPont now?

I make food ahead of time and freeze it in those ziplock throw away containers. I too bring my own pot, fry pan, and utensils. My daughter is ultra sensitive and therefore all must be gluten-free. I bake an assortment cookies and muffins and bring potato chips and chocolate bars. Not the healthiest but we eat healthy at home.

When I am away for a few days I bring lots of genisoy bars, yogurt, Amy's frozen entrees, rice cakes and peanut butter and some bagged salad. Also, I'll bring a homemade pasta casserole that everybody might enjoy. Good luck.

    • Kaiser offers the full panel, but a primary care MD can not order it -- only a GI.  Again, a visual is not needed.  Damage is usually severe if it can be seen visually (e.g. Scalloping, etc.).  Villi are microscopic though.   Search through the Kaiser directory and find one who has some mention of celiac disease in his bio.  Now, that you have been referred to a GI, you can schedule another appointment on your own.  Wait first for the pathologist's report.  They might not put it on the patient portal, so get a hard copy for your records.  If it is negative and they took four or biopsies, you will have your answer. Then you can consider trialing the diet.  If they did not take enough samples, ask for the DGP and EMA tests, including the control test IGA deficiency (which affects 10% of celiacs, but do not quote me on this).  You could wait a few years until you think damage is severe enough to find.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose.  It can develop at anytime.   Don't forget you might have a gluten sensitivity too and not celiac disease.   Kaiser responds well to requests in writing.  Try the patient portal first before a registered letter.  If they are not following the standard level of care, they are at risk for a lawsuit.  Be nice.  Say something lame in your letter like,  "We had such a nice short visit, so I  forgot to ask ....blah, blah, blah." My own relatively new PCP is still learning about celiac disease.  That is okay.  At least she has an open mind.    
    • It is gluten free...I eat it regularly and have had no issues and it tastes yummy. 😀
    • A quick update: I emailed my primary doctor and she is on the same page as the GI doctor, saying the Endoscopy looks normal. Even before we've gotten the biopsy back.  By the way, I should mention I'm dealing with Kaiser in the Bay Area, CA and everything I've found about Kaiser on these forums is horrible and similar to my own experience.  I specifically asked about all the components of the full celiac panel and that I would like to get it and all she said was: "The lab tests are not perfect. Although they may indicate an increased risk for celiac, they are not as specific as the biopsy." So, now we should just ignore the positive IgG? How am I supposed to know if I'm IgA deficient if they don't test for that? I replied and asked again and she said that Kaiser doesn't offer the full panel. Why not? And I said I want vitamin and iron tests and no reply to that yet.              
    • Thank you so much for all the help and support you have given me. I cannot thank you enough. I am ever so sorry to post again here but wondered if I could check with you about this. When at work, I very rarely get chance to eat a lot and so have always been eating the Milky Way UK bars, which I believe contain gluten or barley. I usually have around 6 of these as they tide me over until getting home. I also have two slices of bread on a morning. I was wondering whether this would be sufficient as I am worried in case I haven't had enough gluten?  Thank you for everything and I wanted to apologise for being a nuisance on here.
    • Thanks Matt I appreciate your response and assistance getting " moved to my own thread" thanks so much. I do have the results of my labs they took and am unsure which labs are which so I will try to attach them and perhaps someone can help me decode them.😂   Thanks again Heidi
