No Gluten/soy/dairy - Borderline Corn

6 posts in this topic

Greetings all.

Slightly frustrated; strike that - really frustrated. I'm gluten/soy and casein intolerant -- and feel like i'm pushing the envelope with corn.

Recently I've been looking the other way if something has a little soy in it -- not a good idea.

There are so many questions I have for my fellow intolerance-ites. But let me start with one -- do you know of any calcium supplements w/o gluten/soy/milk?

Calcium is my big worry right now.

Calcium Citrate plus Magnesium & Vitamin D - the Vitamin Shoppe brand. They have stores (not sure what part of the country you are in) or you can order online at vitaminshoppe.com. Per the label "No yeast, corn wheat, sugar, salt, soy, starch, dairy, citrus, fish, perservatives, artificial colors or flavors added". The other ingredients are gelatin, water and magnesium strearate.

I am also gluten, dairy (casein), soy, yeast, almond, hazelnut intolerant - plus I try to avoid corn and most other grains. I take 2 capsules 3 times a day to supplement the calcium I get through my diet. I use Vance's Darifree (it is a powder you mix with water) in my baking and on my cereal - it is fortified with calcium as well.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.

P.S. I've felt your frustration - but I've also discovered a whole world of tastes now that I have no choice but to eat my fruits and veggies in my diet. And all the hassle well worth it - I've felt SO much better since I got the foods that I was intolerant out of my diet. Can't believe how crappy I used to feel on a daily basis.

Me too - I'm intolerant of all grains (including rice), dairy, soy, yeast, beans, nuts, most veggies (except squash and carrots), most fruit (except bananas, avocado and non-acidic canned fruit). With time I have come to find things I really enjoy (carmelized squash - yummy). I take citracal for calcium.

I use the CVS non-name brand calcium + D withouth any problems. Almost all meds have corn, I just try to keep them to a minumum and have been OK most of the time.

Once you get all this figured out, it gets so much better. I finally figured out the calcium suppliment that is added to all non-dairy milk and OJ was making me sick. I can drink Vance's and I fould a real OJ without the calcium, $6+ for a half gallon though.

I completely avoid soy and it is in a lot of lotions and soaps...just watch for them. I gave up puffs plus due to soy issues.

Hey, I discovered I can eat apples (bananas are out).

Thank you all for the help!

Recently I have eaten something with soy or milk bc i have no energy and am completely lethargic - in the way that only soy or milk (and gluten) make me feel. Kind of depressed about it.

I really appreciate your feedback though.

I've been there, too. It's hard to give up so many foods. Gluten is hard enough, but when you add soy, corn, egg, milk.... I mean, what's left!!!???

That's how one feels, anyway.

But, in reality, there's a lot left. It's just not convenient anymore. It does take time to get adjusted to a new way of eating, and there's a certain amount of getting over the loss and being depressed. But, given some time to get used to it all, the emotional downs get fewer and aren't quite as depressing.

I've been five months on this journey and I still feel sorry for myself now and then. But I will never go back to eating the things that make me sick. I may yearn for them, but I won't put them in my mouth.

I'm always encouraged by those on this board who have been at this longer than I have and they seem to have it much more "together" than I do... so that gives me hope. I'm looking forward to my one-year-mark of being allergen-free and knowing that I'll be so much better then.

    • Teff Intolerance?
      Udi's brand also uses sodium carboxymethyl cellulose in many products, a food additive emulsifier that may cause intestinal symptoms. Emulsifiers help stabilize the bread and give it a great texture but the additive may also possibly be emulsifing the intestinal lining. Our intestinal cell walls are lined with electrically active proteins that are shaped somewhat like bottle brushes with a stiff backbone protein handle topped by electrically active bristles that act like magnets that repel each other and help keep the tube shape of the intestine open. So food additive emulsifiers may be disrupting the ability of the intestinal walls to stay open. Xanthum gum is also an emulsifier.

    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      Welcome, @ModernLifeIsWar! Celiac has over 300 symptoms, but it looks like you have some symptoms that appear a lot in those diagnosed with celiac. I suggest you take these symptoms to your doctor and ask for a GI consult and to get the full blod panel to test for celiac disease. The gold standard is an endoscope, where 4 or more biopsies of the intestines are taken. The caveat is that you must be on a diet with gluten for all tests to be accurate, and you must continue eating gluten until all testing is done.  So, if it were me, I would start eating gluten again and get that referral.  However, you need to make the decision that is best or you.  Edited to Add: Also, since you eat a lot of processed food, your body might be reacting to other things, such ad additives. 
    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      I don't have any real major stomach issues, however I've had a diet for years very high in gluten consisting of tons of junk food (pizza, cookies, cereal, donuts, etc..).  A few symptoms I have noticed over the years have been: -Migraines (very frequent) -Large increase in eye floaters -Very bad sinus congestion -Very bad anxiety -Semi frequent bouts of diarrhea/runny bowel movements. Not all the time, but it certainly happens more than I feel is normal.   However, in terms of stomach pain I haven't noticed much. I do get very bloated sometimes however, mainly just contributed this to my crappy diet. Anyways, since the beginning of April I've been having a lot of neurological issues and after reading more into gluten intolerance I'm wondering if it couldn't be associated: -Full body tremors ranging from hands, arms, legs, and core. (i.e. I shake a lot when doing stuff with my hands, if I try to do sit ups my whole body will shake, etc..). I've had minor hand tremors in the past but this problem has recently blown to a whole new level -Muscle spasms all over and mild cramping -tingling feelings randomly throughout my  body in all parts including face and head -Shortness of breath -Racing heart rate when doing physical activity (i.e. walking upstairs and I'm a fairly active person) -Minor issues with balance and coordination -Brain fog   I'm going to see a neurologist in 3 weeks, but I decided to give gluten free a try as of two days ago. I've also been taking a lot of important vitamins and nutrients (b12, d, b complex, fish oil, magnesium, etc..). I'd be interested to know if anyone here has experienced similar symptoms (most notably tremors and muscle spasms) and had success switching to gluten free. I've seen anecdotal cases posted, so I'm hoping that maybe this is my issue. Another thing to note is my younger sister has very bad stomach issues. She hasn't seen a Dr about it and can't follow a diet to save her life, but she commonly complains of pain, gas, bloating, nasty bowel movements, etc... after eating out. So I think there is a possible genetic factor here. What would be the best Dr to seek out in helping me diagnose such a thing? Also is it normal to have stomach issues AFTER starting gluten free? Today is my third day and I've had 2 bouts of diarrhea and very loud stomach growling. Possibly from switching from a diet full of sugar and gluten to one with significantly less and gluten free?
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Cristiana, You are quite right, there could be something wrong with the batch. I have often wondered this myself when I've had symptoms. A lot of manufacturers recall products when they find contamination issues, I often wonder though, how many products 'sneak' under the radar and no-one knows for sure; it could be the reason why so many of us wonder what we did to get 'glutened'.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
