Soy Out.....dairy Back In?
0

4 posts in this topic

I gave up dairy in July because I thought it was the cause of my eczema problems, and my skin cleared up right away. That didn't last, however, and after just a couple of weeks the eczema started to creep back and eventually became just as bad as it was.

After a while, I realized that soy was the problem. So I cut soy and, again, my skin cleared right up. This time it has lasted.

I mentioned all of this to my doctor (since I've been diagnosed, she has been very interested in learning more about food intolerances and has been attending all kinds of seminars on the subject). She told me that in one of the seminars she recently attended the nutritionist mentioned that dairy and soy can have some kind of cross reaction, so she said that maybe it wasn't dairy after all. That sounded pretty good to me, so last night I tested dairy and have had no ill effects so far.

Has anyone found that after giving up soy they were able to eat dairy again? Or is that just wishful thinking?

From what I've read an allergy to one can lead to an allergy to the other.....at least in infants. Don't know about adults though. If your eczema comes back you have your answer. I personally wouldn't eat it again (but I know I'm allergic, mildly). If you do decide to eat it again, try and keep it minimal. That is sooooooo hard to do for me anyway. I love cheese and butter. :)

That's really interesting about the possible cross reaction between dairy and soy. I used to just have soy, but I added cheese months ago. But the past three weeks I have been having gi troubles and I can't figure out why. So today I am stopping the soy consumption, but I will continue with limited dairy. Hopefully you and I can get some answers. I'm so glad you posted this.

So far no ill effects from the dairy consumption. That was the night before last. (In case anyone is curious)

    • Thanks, I'll check that out. I may have to apply for my own Medicare card in order to get any kind of coeliac-testing done beyond the screen (see above post.)  No, nobody has even mentioned it. I'm unsure if my doctor knows that I do not need to use my hands to vomit, or if she knows about the involuntary vomiting.  I have a part time job at McDonald's and make around $150 per week, which is how I afford to smoke. Mostly, I spend my money on (generally gluten-containing) binge food and cigarettes. I did attempt to start saving money, but then my shifts were cut at work - which meant I had more time to study, but no money, which was kind of pointless. It's complicated. Here in Australia, cigarettes are $25 per pack. These aren't fancy cigarettes either, just your run-of-the-mill Marlboro 20s. Thanks for caring. I am trying to stop I've had the vomiting thing all my life, way before I started smoking. And no, I'm not sure. I know he had an endoscopy and the flattened villi, but I'm not sure if he got a blood test - I assume he would have done, don;t know if it was the full panel. Supposedly he has this FODMAP thing, which I'll admit that I know next to nothing about. Interestingly, people who have to follow low-FODMAP or no-FODMAP diets can't eat gluten either, so there's that. 
    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
