Hey Terri: I found I was also intolerant to soy after I tried to substitute soy products for all the dairy products I can't have with my casein intolerance. (My Enterolab test showed antibodies to casein as well as gluten.) My 'soy symptoms' are more immediate, but less severe than my casein symptoms and both are less severe than gluten symptoms. With soy, I get immediate cramping pains which feel like menstrual cramps but I ended all that 7 years ago
. I also get bloating and gas which all passes within a couple of days, unlike dairy which also gives me constipation, sinus symptoms and reflux and lasts 4 days. My gluten symptoms are excuciating pain, bloating, gas, and steatorrhea, all of which last 5-7 days. After gluten and casein, soy is the next most difficult protein to digest and very likely to cause allergic and/or intolerance reactions.
Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D, thyroid supplement, arabinogalactan and DHEA to improve immunity.
