4. Be careful of wheat

Patients with light symptoms of AD should use the right amount of steroidal ointments for the corresponding symptoms, take in less oil and protein, and alleviate the imbalance between Th2 and Th1 cells to cure their condition. However, if you suffer from heavy symptoms such as intense itchiness that doesn’t even let you sleep, nodular prurigo, or lichenification, you must take other measures as well.

Wheat is said to be one of the 5 major allergens, and should be treated accordingly. There are many food products containing flour. These products can be classified as soft flour, all purpose flour, or hard flour depending on the amount of gluten. These groups should be approached differently. Gluten is many from fiberous glutenin and spherical gliadin. The glutenin is a very powerful allergen, but aliadin is known to cause some allergies as well.

Strong flour is 11.5 to 13.5 % gluten, and is used in bread, pizza, the skin of dumplings, macaroni, and ramen (Chinese noodles). All purpose flour is 8.5 to 10.5% g gluten, and is used in udon, somen (Japanese vermicelli) and doughnuts. Soft flour is 7 to 8.5% gluten and is used in cake, sweets, and tempura coating.
Patients with severe AD symptoms should not eat foods with lots of gluten such as bread, pizza, spaghetti, macaroni, and ramen. Instead, they should eat udon and somen. However, as the symptoms get better, you can eat gluten rich foods again, so you will only need to patient. Furthermore, ramen noodles tend to have a coat of oil, so even if your symptoms get better, you should not eat ramen.

Also, soba (buckwheat noodles) does not use wheat, but contains the most protein (albumin and globulin) out of all noodles, and should be avoided as well. Also, even adults with fully developed intestines can form soba allergies, so be careful.

As mentioned before, there are A-cut bread, made from A-cut rice, so if you need to eat bread, please order these from the internet.

5. Pay attention to rice as well.

These days, Asian foods, such as Japanese, Chinese, and Vietnamese dishes, are being eaten all over the world. However, rice contains lots of fat and protein. White (polished) rice commonly used in Japan contains 6 grams of protein and 1 gram of fat per 100 grams. This becomes a large amount if you eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Also, people tend to be rushed in the morning and gobble everything down, which makes matters even worse. Since they don’t chew, the protein in the rice does not break down into amino acids, and remains as polypeptides. This, as mentioned before, causes skin irritation and can also be an allergen.

When linoleic acid accumulates on the cell membrane and you become so sensitive to allergies that you even react to the fat and protein in rice, you should be careful of what you eat, especially if it is the staple of your country. Stop eating rice for at least one month (if your condition is really bad, stop eating it for 6 months). Instead of rice, try eating potatoes, sweet potatoes, and pumpkins.

However, if you really want to eat rice, you can eat A-cut rice instead. The A in A-cut stands for “Allergy”, and the proteins, which become allergens, are treated in a way that the allergic reactions will be “cut”. There are only 2.1 grams of protein, which are already broken down into smaller pieces, in 100 grams of A-cut rice. This rice is obviously more expensive than normal rice. This rice is in a boil-in-bag, and once it is boiled it looks and tastes exactly like normal rice. If you are interested, you can order it from the internet (this is different from musenmai, rice that’s already been cleaned so it doesn’t have bran on it).

Also, for the reasons mentioned above, brown (unpolished) rice is extremely bad for AD patients. There are 7 grams of protein and 3 grams of fat per 100 grams of brown rice. In general, brown rice will make you healthier, but if you have AD, asthma, or allergic diseases such as hay fever, you should avoid eating brown rice. This can be said for mochi rice (rice used for rice cakes) and millets, which have more protein. You should also avoid eating okaki (toasted rice cakes) since they are made from mochi rice as well. If you encounter doctors that say brown rice is good for AD patients, know that they are unscrupulous liars or clueless and avoid them.

If you are careful with your diet and follow these guidelines, you will get better. Eventually you will be able to eat rice without suffering from side effects, so be hopeful.

6. Eggs

Until 4 or 5 years ago, I allowed patients older than junior high school students to eat eggs. However, eggs made these days have too much protein, and for those who do not exercise regularly, not eating eggs will quicken your recovery. There are some patients who eat mainly Japanese dishes but do not heal quickly since they put eggs on their rice. This ruins the nutritional value of a Japanese meal.

Yolk contains arachidonic acid, and egg whites contain a protein called avidin. I’ve already explained how arachidonic acid metabolizes malignant eicoasnodoids. Avidin gets in the way of the absorption of an important vitamin for AD treatment, biotin.

Mayonnaise, which is a mixture of eggs and oil containing liniolic acid, is particularly harmful. Eggs are also used in cakes, so people with severe symptoms should avoid eating cakes.

I can almost hear your cries saying “How do I get protein if I can’t eat all these foods?”. The answer is simple. Seafood, as well as soybean products that have undergone fermentation, such as miso and natto (however, don’t take in soybean protein) are good sources of protein. However, those who exercise regularly and sweat a lot can start to eat beef shabushabu, a Japanese dish with sliced and boiled meat, (do not, however, eat pork shabushabu) and eggs if their symptoms improve. Otherwise, the extreme diet restriction will trigger stress and worsen situations.
