I'd be careful in Singapore...my parents lived there for several yeasr (this was prior to my diagnosis) and 'stall food' was hugely popular but it almost always contained soy sauce (and I'm pretty sure it wasn't gluten-free soy sauce considering the vast amounts used!) I think you'll do better to stick to the nicer restaurants but you probably want to phone ahead to see if they can accomodate you...I haven't been back in several years so perhaps things have changed plus S'pore is a pretty cosmopolitan place so hopefully the basic knowledge is there...just don't assume.

Hi. I just moved to Singapore in January (2013) and was recently diagnosed with gluten-intolerance. So far, I've found it tricky to eat out here at the local stalls (hawker centers). Everything has soy sauce in it and it's not gluten free. Other dishes such as Indian foods typically have deep fried dishes mixed in with the other stuff. I've had better success eating out in very high end places, but be prepared to spend a serious amount of money on your meal. Most of the time, I just cook at home. There are plenty of gluten-free products available from local supermarkets and organic stores. If you need some recommendations, let me know.

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
    • A negative result from a biopsy that is.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
