Hi Brenda92 - Interesting conversation. I watch a Dr. Richard Becker (D.O.) on tv - he says a lot of sinus problems are related directly to lung problems also (post nasal drips - into the lungs). I thought that correlation was interesting.

I don't remember having nasal problems growing up, but I did get a bout of laryngitis annually for about 10 or 11 years from age 10 or so on. As a young adult I'd have bouts of bronchitis. At age 32 I was dx hypothyroid. Then 11 years later (1 yr anniv Feb 1 in fact!) I got the celiac dx. I used to get canker sores a lot as a kid, too.

Sorry, off topic. I just think it's interesting. What do you attribute the sinus troubles to? Do they smoke? Evironment: pollution?

Sounds like you are really adjusting to the life there. I can sympathize about the sinus issues too! I have enrionmental allergies that drive me crazy. I have a lot of sinus headaches. I have heard it is very humid in the east, so hopefully you and your family will adjust to that soon.

Hi there, I have learned a lot this week. I have learned that a lot of korean do not have sinus problems, something my family is battling right now. The koreans eat Kimch(very spicy) which opens thier sinuses up. They do eat a lot of rice though. I think they metabolize it better than we so. So I eat the brown rice at home and if we are out I just have about a cup of white. I eat a lot vege and the lean meat as well. I do love the korean food and we are adjusting to it. I am now learning how to cook it for it is a healthy way to eat. This week is Pipimbob( misxed vege over rice). they usually eat it with a red pepper sauce. It includes seaweed, spinach,sliced thin carrots, bean sprouts, really whatever you like in it. Oh do not forget the fried egg!!

Hi Brenda92. I'm a Brenda too! If I could be so bold as to ask why you are in Korea!! How long have you been there? I'd love to visit there one day. If I were you, I'd take advantage of being there and really learn how the Korean's cook! I know finding stuff for the GF diet there would be difficult, but take a look around the other people around you. Asian's and Korean's are very tiny people! What are their eating habits? What do they eat, and when? What spices do they use etc. They do eat a lot of rice I believe, which could be a bad thing, but if you eat brown rice instead of white, and a small serving, that would be great! Making a lot of vegetable dishes, and using lean meats for stir frys would be very easy there. Find out what they do for breakfast and follow their lead. I'm sure you kids would enjoy cereal for breakfast, but find something you can eat from the culture you are living in and cut out bread products all together. You are doing very well in your weight loss and exercising. Good for you!
All the best in 07.
