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)

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
