Soy Intolerance
0

57 posts in this topic

I *think* I may be soy intolerant. My most obvious symptom is a depression that comes out of absolutely nowhere. I get ANGRY or I despair for no reason. I want to hurt myself or inanimate objects.

I used to feel like this every night--go to bed depressed, then wake up fine in the morning. After going gluten-free, that stopped, except for three major times. those three times I could trace it back to soy oil, soy lecithin, and cross-contamination from a facility that also uses soy.

The soy oil by far gave me the worse reaction. Immediate stomachache, smelly, painful gas, reflux, headache/depression/fatigue that lasted several days. The soy lecithin and soy CC only gave me neurological symptoms of depression, headache, and fatigue, although it's possible I can blame some gas on it too. And possibly acid reflux.

How can you know if its the gluten or /and the soy? Most of the time they are both in a product. I am suspecting soy also. What product can I try thats just one or the other?

I react to soy much the same as to gluten. And in fact, soy can destroy the villi as well.

You might try some tofu, or some edamame beans.

I recently confirmed my intolerance to soy. My heart rate slowed, fatigue, shortness of breath, headaches, dizziness. Its been 8 days since I ingested soy. It is pretty dibilitating. I have to eat a small snack or meal every couple of hours to supplement my energy. I am also loading up on b-vits, c-vit, & calcium to replenish what I can what my body isn't absorbing. I am slowly losing my patients with myself over my recovery time. Life was good and active then it came to a halt with this soy reaction. no work & no school.

Anyone have similar experiences? Tips? Or how long it took you to recover?

A reaction can last days, weeks, or longer, depending on how much you consumed, and your state of health in general.

It's pretty miserable, but seems to just need to run it's course?

You might try adding coconut oil to your diet? It feeds your brain just like glucose and has anti-inflamatory/healing properties. A dose of at least 2-3T per day has helped me. I add it to my morning coffee, use it like I would butter on cooked veggies, and use it to cook with. I really like the organic extra virgin Nutivia brand, which I buy online.

Look it up. You might be surprised how beneficial it is in your diet.

Some people find that taking a long soaking bath in epsom salts helps pull toxins from the body too.

Good luck. I hope this passes soon for you.

Does anyone else find that they react to soy flour much worse than tofu etc? Soy flour (in biscuits/cakes etc) has a really quick reaction with me - I get some similar reactions to my coeliac ones - bloating/gas etc, but I think things like tofu/gluten-free tamari are OK...

I've seen that soy has a high risk of cross contamination in the fields as it is grown in rotation with wheat. If you're bothered by soy flour, maybe that could be the problem? I wish I had those at home test strips...

For those of you that are also reactive to soy, what do your reactions look like?

I'm starting to suspect that I'm reacting even stronger to soy than I am to gluten, and DANG does soy hide in a lot of places!

Does anyone have a soy-free chocolate recommendation? I can handle giving up wheat pasta, but CHOCOLATE?? <_<

For me soy brings almost immediate gastro reactions. MISERY! Mostly very unpleasant gas and stomach cramping. I am more reactive to soy than gluten. Its really difficult to find gluten-free goodies that don't contain soy. I mainly stick to whole, natural foods that I prepare myself. For gluten-free foods my favorite is udi's. Great breads, cookies, and other goodies.

    • pablito, here is the full serum (blood) panel. Make sure your doc runs ALL of the tests on it, not just 1 or 2. Insist!!!!! YOU are in charge. Remember that. Some people test negative on the most common 1 or 2 tests they run so it's always better to have the full panel run. Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Remember that celiac disease is a genetically inherited disease so it's important for you to find out if you have it and if so, then your kids & all first degree relatives (siblings, parents) need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms but right away if symptoms present. Do not go gluten free after the blood work as if you get positive blood work, you will need an endoscopy which you'll need to continue eating gluten for. The pimple things may or may not be the celiac rash as there are many skin problems associated with celiacs.
    • Hi, I've been experiencing on and off left side abd pain and bloating for about 3-4 years (doctors in the past didn't help much, just said I have IBS). My new doctor did some blood work and found out  my vitamin D was low, CRP was high.  Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive. I had an endoscopy done and the doctor confirmed I don't have Celiac, but she found very small ulcers (took Pepcid for 2 weeks). She also told me I have a leaky gut and non celiac gluten sensitivity. I'm taking probiotics for the leaky gut.  So for the past 3 months I've been eating gluten free and the pain came back 2 times.  The pain is always on the left side of my abdomen. Makes me feel weak, starts with constipation and usually ends with diarrhea. Tylenol helps the pain.  I'm waiting on my food allergy tests results to see if it can be anything other than gluten. So my question is, what does a weak positive Antigiladin IGG mean if a gluten free diet is not helping?  Could the "leaky gut" cause my Antigiladin IGG to rise? Really confused here, just want to start feeling better and not have the pain come back ever again.     Thanks
    • Thank you very much for the reply and advice I assume doctors didn't know or check into this disease too much back in the early 80's or my family doctor would have easily seen these symptoms and discussed this with me then. If I do have this disease it would explain a lot about my health and overall physical discomfort all my life. Pretty sad if it is the case and it could have been prevented but thankful I know about it now. I have made an apt with my doctor so shouldn't be long before I know for sure. Thanks again for your help
    • I continue to do more research but only found 3 journal articles which discuss the reversal of the fold pattern, possibly why I can't find answers I was waiting on on my latest celiac panel to come back so here it is, expecting slight cross contamination from eating out and possible several recent dentist visits. All three tests are based on a normal scale of 0-20 being within range.  DPG IgA - 24.5 DPG IgG – 6.84 tTg IgA – 22
