Welcome to the forum, King Danilo. I am the wrong one to be answering this question, but the only one around at this time of night :o I am not a chinese food eater or restaurant frequenter, but if they say it is fine, and your body says it is fine, 7 times!!!, I would guess it is probably fine :)

Wow! I'm eating out Chinese this weekend with family and I had planned to order plain rice and steamed vegetables with no sauce and bring my own soy sauce to be safe. I wonder if there are actually more options for me! Anyone else had luck with particular dishes at a Chinese restaurant? I'm not a general tso's fan. :)

Oh how I want that to be true!!! Is it one of those hole-in-the-wall places, or a chain? I miss Chinese food so badly - my newest problem is soy, so I have trouble even going to PF Changs which was my favorite for years!! Hope you get more answers on this one...I'm completely curious now myself!

thank you =) yes it is wonderful knowing it doesent bother me and it seems to be perfect! become a general tsos fan because not only do they have it in providence, but they have the same thing to offer in my home town, with the no flour, soy, and made out of corn starch. ask around =)

I have had nothing but reactions with Chinese restaurants no matter what they have told me...until...I recently ate at a restaurant here in our town called China Inn. I don't know if it is a chain or not. But I talked with the owner to see what I could eat and told her about how I couldn't have soy sauce...since every Chinese restaurant I have checked out the soy sauce had wheat in it. So, the owner said "WAIT!" and she came out with an empty clean 5 gallon bucket that the soy sauce came in! It had all the ingredients in it and no wheat! It had molasses in it unlke La Choy which has corn syrup. I will have to get the name of the sauce and post it later. Then she showed me the menu and how she had listed what she had thickened things with. Example is the Egg Flower Soup...with corn starch like it should be but so far the Chinese restaurants I had tried used flour. The owner was shocked when I told her that and she said that only a bad cook would do that! It turned out that only 4 items on the entire menu could not be eaten except for the obvious ones, such as the breaded or on lo mein noodles, etc. The best was it was delicious and NO REACTION. I usually know before I even leave the restaurant if I have been "poisoned" with gluten. Just having the communcation on the menu was so nice. She told me she had been asked enough times that she felt it would be beneficial for her to change the menu to encourage business. Smart woman! She has my business.

No, I am in Lewiston, Idaho! My good experience was at China Inn, Lewiston ID.

I will also say that I was in Springfield MO recently and ate at a Thai restaurant. I believe it was called Thai Express on Glenstone Ave. He kept telling me there was no soy sauce in the their items unless we ask for it...and then I read their ingredients in their soy sauce and even that was real soy sauce with no wheat! I ate and ate and ate two different time of his curry. Anyone that lives there has got to try his Pumpkin Curry and also the Red Curry. It must have a zillion calories which is fine as long as I don't live there and only visit a couple of times a year! Gained weight. But no reaction. Absolutely none. Almost made me cry it felt so good to eat. That was before I came back home to Idaho and had the wonderful China Inn experience. After I had the good Thai experience I spent quite a bit of time online researching Thai and was amazed how much we can eat. Yes, some recipes do use soy sauce instead of their fish sauce. But the recipes I was reading said the authentic Thai do not use soy sauce. I think I will become a genuine Thai food fan.

I also talked a Thai restaurant that is in a neighboring city, Clarkston, WA. They also told me they didn't use soy unless asked. I only have been there a couple of times but both times, no reaction, but I was very careful how I ordered. Now that I had the good experience in Springfield MO, I am anxious to try more at this Thai restaurant here.

I usually simply cook all my own food, so much cheaper and easier and have people to my house instead of going to theirs if possible. Now I feel like I can finally start to relax when I go out with friends at times.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
    • Hi, this has been a postcode lottery for some time, some health authorities support it others don't. The govt has recently indicated that doctors should no longer prescribe food to celiacs, you should check with your local GP to see if they are still doing this or not. if you want some advice on where to shop just ask  
    • @CleoTheLeoI've learned that I have a sluggish liver and that before trying to cleanse the liver, I need to make sure that the gall bladder is clear and working well, as well as the gut, so that when the liver is detoxing, the toxic wastes have an elimination route. Dr. Lam explains so many things in detail in his articles. https://www.drlam.com/blog/sluggish-liver-and-adrenal-fatigue/7854/.
