Jeannine,and to whomever else reads this...
Hi, i'm 26yo. and just recently diagnosed with GP. I dont' have as many episodes, as the others mentioned on the message boards, but when i do it is awful, and happens at the most inopportune momemnts...

Anyhow,....i am looking for some help on finding out what specific foods should be avoided...specific diets for those with GP, what type of nutritional drinks are suggested,websites that have food lists or recipes for suggest foods...etc.

I am not a big fan of medicines, so i am trying to avoid them until absolutely necessary. i did try propulsid, but it made me extremely tired, and i had more severe headaches while using it...and then, it was pulled off the shelves...i have been suggested to take DomPeridone, but when i tried to get it from a pharmacy in Canada recently, they said that they have stopped doing this service for legal reasons...
So, if anyone can help me with the food exclusions, diets, or how to get DomPeridone, please email me at [email protected]
