Hi everyone- I just got back from the island of Kauai in, HI and wanted to share what a wonderful, gluten-free friendly place we found it to be. Most of our time was spent on the east and north-sides of the island which are much less touristy than the south of the island (where all the big resorts are), but so much to do and so much to eat! Nearly every restaurant we went to had a gluten free menu and we found gluten-free baked goods at multiple coffee shops that we randomly wandered into. We also found two different cute little natural foods stores where we stalked up on gluten-free items for the days we dined-in at our timeshare. We did two organized tours-- a snorkeling trip and a kayak/hike to a waterfall and both included gluten free sandwiches for lunch as an option. Kauai in general is gorgeous- lots of non-touristy and relatively crowd-free beaches, good hiking, snorkeling, etc.. I still can not get over what a wonderful surprise it was to find so many gluten-free options available everywhere. Yay, vacation success!!

The national Tropical Botanical Garden area is beautiful too. They filmed part of Jurassic Park there.

Been working on Kauai again and today went to  Sweet Maries Restaurant in Lihue.  Great gluten free menu. Marie Cassel is Celiac and only serves gluten-free foods and baked goods. She is well known for brownies and muffins which are sold all over the island. 

I had polenta in marinara sauce which was               all home made and amazingly good.

    • Matt It makes me feel better knowing I am not alone in this. Gluten sensitivity/celiac seems to effect women more than men too. Your experiance sounds a lot like mine.  Besides trying to figure out what foods were causing my problems, I am getting older, and have developed mild arthritis. I was also diagnosed with adult A.D.D. many years ago. As you know, both are symptoms of celiac!  I also began a new high stress career at the same time my symptoms began. So confusing. I guess that's why its called 'The great imitator'. One bright light is the fact a lot more gluten free foods are coming out now, and some of them are actually quite good! Thanks again and please keep in touch, possibly through Facebook. BTW I see you are in the UK. My heart goes out to those poor young gals in Manchester and their parents. I have a  young daughter as well. 
    • My mini fridges usually freeze my eggs!  Ugh! You can buy hard boiled eggs in packages at some groceries.   lunch meat, canned soups - Progresso has some labelled gluten-free, microwave rice - either frozen or in the regular rice isle - add frozen veggies and chicken lunchmeat or canned beans and salsa A few frozen dinners are gluten-free - amys , gluten free brands like Udis, EVOL, Lean cuisine, etc Bush's baked beans Read the ingredients and labels - they all aren't gluten-free.
    • Those cooked eggs are just fine!  If you want to insure that the frig is colder, add a bucket of ice.  Is used to travel without the benefit of a frig.  I just used a couple of ice buckets to chill milk, or whatever.  It worked.  If you want a hot meal, try Udi's frozen meals.   Not the best, but good for hotel cooking.  Several lunch meats are gluten free too at the market.  
    • I clicked it and got re-directed to c.com  but this time I got the article.  I shouldn't copy the whole thing but here is the conclusion - "In conclusion, in the right clinical setting, symptomatic celiac disease is treatable, but we do not recommend population screening. Further data on the clinical impact of a glutenfree diet on the microbiome and the long-term health consequences in those without celiac disease are needed. The entity NCGS closely overlaps with the functional gastrointestinal disorders, and new evidence suggests that at least in some gluten may not be the culprit despite symptom improvement after beginning a gluten-free diet.We do not recommend a lifelong gluten-free diet for individuals without celiac disease."   Celiac Disease and Nonceliac Gluten or Wheat Sensitivity The Risks and Benefits of Diagnosis Nicholas J.

    • Thanks for the responses. As far as genetic testing goes I wasn't offered that as an option. They ran several labs and everything was normal. We were waiting on celiac to come back and when it did the one marker was high. Not sure who I would talk to about having a genetic test. I did a genesight test for medications and it showed folic acid was questionable. But nothing pertaining to this. Endoscopy is scheduled for Friday.
