In Topic: Chuy's Tex-mex

19 February 2008 - 10:32 AM

We were celebrating a friends birthday last night and went to Chuy's on Knox Henderson in Dallas. It was a great experience. First when I talked to the bartender, I asked about margarita's and the top shelf is not a mix, with all safe ingredients. Yum!

Next when we got to the table, I explained to the waiter that I was allergic to wheat and I would be complicated, but I am sorry. (With a very sweet smile). I ordered vegetable enchiladas with ranchero sauce and double checked everything with him, especially the Ranchero sauce. He later returned to the table and told me the ranchero was with a ruex, so he substituted the tomatillo sauce for me. Then he reassured me the tortillas were 100% corn and made in the resturant.

Overall it was a great time. I didn't get sick, and he took a lot of time with me on a busy Sat. night. I felt special. No one gave me any grief about ingredients and he was educated and knew about Ruex. :lol:

Hi Kat!

Do you know what else we can eat off the Chuy's menu? Sorry to ask, but what is Ruex? Thanks for your help.

In Topic: Celiac And Interstitial Cystitis

19 February 2008 - 10:17 AM

Hi, I wondering if any of you also have interstitial cystitis. I have it and it seems that I have food related problems with that as well - of course it is a bunch of different foods that have nothing to do with gluten, like, well, soy and red wine to name a couple...(I have read that this is "normal" for people with IC). I got the interstim implant and that has helped a great deal, but still have issues with it when i eat or drink something "wrong." Anyway, I find it difficult to cut out gluten (dairy is a rough one too), and everything that affects my IC - there is a list of foods that are bad for IC and it includes almost everything one can imagine, of course except bread - ha, how is that for fun! If you can sympathize, please post so i don't feel so lonely. Of course, I never really feel lonely - this is such a great site!



Hey! I am new to this forum. I have the same exact problems. Ever since I have been on a strict gluten-free diet my health is normal except for constant bladder pains. I seriously can't handle this pain anymore. I constantly have the burning feeling when I use the bathroom. My doctor prescribed me elmiron and she said that is shoud take 3-6 months for it to actually work. I am hoping this helps. I do notice that certain foods and drinks irritate it, so I try to do the whoel process of elmination. I never heard of interstim implant. Could you please give me more information about this. Thanks.
