I want to stop using Taurine, since I've been having pain around my sides and my stomach and am concerned.

Please stop using it and see how you feel. I only take it if I get an MSG or sulfite reaction.

It's just hard, because I have to eat what my grandmom brings home and even when I tell her what I can and can't eat she thinks it's all in my head. I need something to prevent attacks.

Interesting - I take 1000mg every day, in the morning. If I don't I get heart palpitations.

I assumed it has a lot to do with my sulfite intolerance - since it would seem I have difficulty metabolizing sulfur-containing amino acids, I can't effectively make taurine and glutathione.

But the real test is I do poorly if I don't take it. You should stop and see if it makes any difference.

It does make a difference. My head feels good on Taurine, but my stomach doesn't and I get pain around my kidney area which is why I'm concerned. I really need something to prevent attacks. I was going to get coq10 to begin with, but got taurine since coq10 is so expensive. I have to rely on what my grandmom gets me to eat. I have no job and am a college student. I try to tell her what I can and can't have, but she is pretty naive when it comes to labeling and when they add "no msg" to the label. Sometimes the only food I have to eat will have at least some MSG.

Anonymous, Could you possibly go to the store with your grandma sometimes and help select the food? If she's like most grandmas she'd probably love to have you along.

Did you use the taurine as a pure powder? That form is cheaper than pills and might have fewer side effects.

Another replacement for taurine is magnesium. Avoid chelated magnesium as that will trigger a reaction. Magnesium orotate powder is OK.

Wait Taurine slows short term memory? I've been taking it a lot lately. Do you think my memory will be ok? I've only taken taurine in powdered form.

Any effect on short time memory will go away once you stop taking it. Taurine and magnesium have a similar effect and I believe that the memory problems can be alleviated by making sure that calcium is taken together with the magnesium.

However, to much calcium might increase MSG-sensitivity.

Your grandmother is of a generation that is very skeptical about so-called special diets. It is next to impossible to get my mother to change. But now, since my brother-in-law, with whom she lives along with my sister, is reacting seriously to MSG, she is being forced to respect his needs. She used to do most of the shopping and a lot of the cooking. Now they keep a tighter reign on her. You must take responsibility for your health. Avoiding MSG is the only way to reclaim your health. You will only suffer more if you rely on vitamins and minerals to "prevent" reactions. Damage is still being done, and you have to communicate the seriousness of the problem with your grandmother. Diabetics get the respect we deserve, too. Perhaps she can allocate some of her food budget to your special needs and you can offer to make some of the meals. Do you have our book? I suggest that might help both of you prepare meals you can both enjoy.
