I Think I'm Turning Japanese

I'm curious how many of you feel better on a Asia type diet (rice, poultry, fish, and vegetables)?

When I switched to this diet I felt so much better. Now I actually have energy after eating. I started this diet down in Mexico, because down there you just can't get any processed gluten free food.

Also I seem to have a problem with

I just wanted to thank you for making me smile with your funny topic title. I now have that song stuck in my head!! :D

As far as the eating Asian style food. I eat it ALL THE TIME!! It is very quick and easy to make, makes great leftovers, and is healthy and YUMMY!! I am always whipping up a stir-fry of some sort.

Your mention of bottled water interested me. I have been using spring water or purified water for the past couple weeks for cooking(think how much rice soaks up) and drinking, and I really have to limit skin contact with chlorinated water. Feel much better for doing so.

I was doing another search for info on chlorine allergies recently and got a hit at Someone named Joseph Mathews did a posting about chlorine in drinking water and said he took prescription

CHLORD/CLIDI CAP 5-2.5MG twice a day

which is a anticholinergic and benzodiazepine combination, and he was searching for a possible alternative - but didn't say why.

I haven't done any follow-up research but plan on looking into it.

I got a reply when I did a post elsewhere months ago asking about alkalinity of water related to skin and scalp problems from someone in Scotland putting in a water filtration system, sounded like she/I have same problems.

wow, I never thought about it but damn, this makes sense. I use normal water and dont get too bad but feel iffy but when I used bottled water I do allright.

Do any of you know if "Talking Rain" flavored water is gluten-free?

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
