Hi Everyone,
I was just wondering if any of you are eating sushi or is this a no-no food for most of you? My son is going out with some friends and they are talking about a sushi night. (It sends chills up my spine as I worry about the hours after!) Just wondering if anyone is eating it and doing fine or if it cause a flare for most?
Thanks for all your help and precious advice! It sure is nice to get answers and experience from veterans members.
Good health to everyone!!! yeah

I love sushi and it is a safe fast food for me. I try to limit the wasabi I use but other than that I am a-ok with it.

I love sushi, and I find it totally "safe"'s great becase you aren't left with that sick feeling of full, it's just nice and light.  That and it's very healthy for you. :-)

I stick with the cooked stuff.  California roll, Philadelphia roll with crab instead of raw salmon, ebi (cooked shrimp over rice).  Watch out for sesame seeds and pick out the cucumber, if that doesn't set well.  As long as I'm careful with my selections, sushi works for me.

My doctor just told me to stay away from uncooked fish. He shoud pick out any seeds or cucumber.

I eat tons of sushi, but now that I'm on prednisone I use ponzu sauce instead of soy sauce, because it has lower sodium. Even the low sodium soy sauce usually is pretty high in sodium.

It is the only thing I have NEVER thrown up. Wish I had learned to eat it years ago. When I am due for a treatment it is what I live on for at least a week. I like the tuna and yellow tail the best.

The whole idea of raw fish is unappealing to me. BUT, I have found that the one and only food that NEVER bothers me is very rare tuna. I buy tuna steaks at a very busy and reputable fish market and cook it at home to a very rare. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All that being said, I don't know why I can't tolerate sushi, cause the center of my tuna steak is raw. But I do make sure it is of the highest quality because I don't need to take any chances.

I love it and eat it often. I try to avoid the cucumber, but wasabi is my passion.

I eat sushi quite a bit as it's one of the types of restaurants I can get food at. I'd avoid anything with mayonnaise/cheese/stuff like that but rice and fish are very good for me.
