Soy Problem Or Too Much Margaine?
0

10 posts in this topic

I wasn't sure where this should go, think it fit a few areas.. so I went with coping. Sorry if bad! =)

Okay, I found Shedd's Willow Run Soybean Margarine on a like two different sites for gluten-free/CF diets.. and looking at what's in it, didnt' see any problems. So got it! Been using it for awhile now, maybe.. errm 3-4 weeks?

Anyway, last Monday night, then Tuesday night.. it felt like I was having my usual reaction to diary. Though my body could react to other things in the same way, perhaps.. lol.

The only thing I could think of that could have caused this, was the margarine. Since I ended up haveing a lot of it Sunday and Monday at dinner. Sunday, gluten-free "buttered" noddles, and corn on the comb with it too. Monday, salt potatoes dipped it (sooo yummy). So I'm thinking maybe I have a problem with Soy?

But.. my mom said maybe I just had too much margarine for my system to handle. Seems pausible too?

I did call Shedd up, lady was real nice. Didn't sound like there was any cross contamination issues.. but.. it didn't feel we were entirely on the same wave length. So not sure.

Another odd thing is.. well, odd.. but good. Since last sunday, it feels like I may be finally making improvements on the diet! Which would be great. Though been feeling worse too at the same time, kinda.. that's the odd part. And I'm thinking if I have problems with Soy, I shouldn't be improving? lol

Oh well, so question.. anyone know of a gluten-free/CF Soy milk? I think the best way to find out if soy is bad, is to just drink a nice big glass and see what happens.

Soooo hoping maybe it was just too much margarine for my system to take. I'd cry if soy was bad. And the Shedd's Willow Run Soybean Margarine.. ugh.. it tastes like butter to me.. it's so yummy, LOL. Though could be contaminated too.. maybe, I dunno. Soy test first, then we'll see where to go from there.

Okay, somewhat asking questions, somewhat whining. =D

Silk is gluten-free/CF. You might try eliminating soy for a few days, then adding it back in with a vengance to see if it's bothering you.

Have you thought about corn? I can't eat it. It is a grain, isn't it? I ussually have a little different symtoms from eating corn than gluten. I ussually itch. Just an idea.

After eliminating gluten, I discovered I have similar responses to corn, soy bean , and peanut products - this in additon to lactose/casien intollerance. Even the small amount in the completely lactose free margarins make me sick. I use olive oil for all cooking and am trying to eliminate the need for anything else. I have not figured out how to bake without it though so right now I am trying to do without.

Alexolua: My gastrointestinal 'soy' symptoms are just like my dairy symptoms, except less severe and shorter in duration. Also I don't get the sinus and regularity symptoms with soy like I do with dairy. My gluten reaction symptoms are definitely different from dairy in duration, intensity and type of gastrointestinal pain. So I agree with all the previous posts: abstain from soy for a while and then test with soy milk. You probably won't need much after you have abstained to have a reaction, so just buy a small container for your test. ;)

Thanks for the comments all.

Well I tried testing it out, and unfortunately my body doesn't want to be helpful!!

Burdee, I actually drank a TON of soy milk, hehe.

But.. I'm not sure if I'm having a reaction or not. If I am, it's nothing at all like I had to the Soybean Margarine. Not nearly as bad. Which doesn't make sense, since if I have a problem with soy, a ton should enduce a worse reaction, right? o.O

Seems mostly like some cramping, gassiness.. and I stayed up really late last night to gauge things, and it just went away.. had no problem sitting here at the computer. The Soybean Margarine reaction I got wouldn't have allowed me to stay here for hours with no problem. I would have felt an urge to go poo poo quite a bit.. even if nothing came out! lol

And since I'm still having lots of symptons.. despite the Gluten-free Casein-free diet, I may not even be having any reaction at all! Ugh.

So, I guess.. try to avoid soy again for a bit, drink more soy milk.. and see if the same things happen.

Maybe the Soybean Margarine might have some casein in it? Or maybe, I had too much of it for my system to handle. Cuz I'd guess that stuff is quite greasy!

I do think my reaction to nuts and casein is about the same though. Gluten reactions? Eh.. dunno. Gluten wise, my reaction was just a slow worsening health.. lol. Not sure what the reaction is now. Haven't tried testing it.

Maybe I'll need an uber-strict diet.. then try adding things in. Ugh!

my soy reaction is a combination of my gluten (stabbing tummy pains) and casein (ridiculous headache) reactions.

I only figured this out after suddenly adding a bunch of soy filled gluten-free food into my diet... ie soy at every meal for a few days and ending up feeling terrible, and then taking it out again and feeling better. Before this "soy binge", I was eating soy every once in a while and sometimes feeling bad after, sometimes not.

Good luck figuring it out, try to be patient with it all.

Alex: I wanted to share more of my 'soy' experience and how that convinced me I have soy problems. OK, I already said I substituted a LOT of different soy products when I learned I couldn't have dairy. Even without dairy or gluten I had symptoms which strongly resembled my dairy symptoms. So I went off soy for a week or so. However, I really thought I would 'get over' the soy problem after a short period, so I kept trying small amounts of soy after every few weeks, like a canola based margarine with a tiny bit of soy which gave me just as intense reactions. Then I tried a gluten-free/CF chocolate with a small amount of soy a few weeks later ... same reaction. Then I consumed a snack bar with a VERY tiny amount of soy another few weeks later ... same reaction. I'm convinced now. ;)

I suspect your reactions of cramping and gassiness were 'intolerance' reactions. My soy reaction was NEVER as intense as my dairy or my gluten reaction. Since I really want my intestines to heal, I regard even mild versions of my symptoms as signals to avoid that ingredient for awhile. Also reading Ron Hoggan's comments (in 'Dangerous Grains') about gluten, dairy and soy being 'diabetogenic foods' and my family history of diabetes (father, grandmother, greatgrandmother, etc.) influenced my decision to avoid soy until I feel healthy for six months or so.

Burdee, I actually had what I'd call my normal reaction.. Tuesday night!! Argh. Had the Soy on Sunday.. so maybe it was just really delayed, and the things I felt before hand, were added.

Though I was an idiot and had something Monday night that might have containned traces of nuts too.. lol.

So, think I just need to really eliminate everything, and try the challenges.. ugh. Though I have been having foods with soy in them, without any real reaction either.. like a cookie here or there. But maybe that's enough to slow the healing too, even if I don't notice anything different.

But I would like to start feeling better already!! So.. guess it might be harder than the ol' gluten-free/CF diet.. =)

    • Japan (Tokyo And Kyoto) Gluten Free
      i would  tend to agree with your mom and that comes from more than  30 years in and out of Japan. the  quality of the produce, meat and fish tends to be much better than the US  becsaue it gets to market  much faster and becasue there is a demand  for quality  above the demand for low price.  As it was pointed out, this  has  nothing to do with gluten.    There  are  alot of things you can  eat  in just about any restaurant  but there are things to learn like onigiri -- rice balls,  are seemingly innocent  but  90% of htem contain wheat starch.  most larger  grocery stores and  department store basements  you can  get  gluten free soy sauce. ---  most  chefs still assume that  soy sauce is soy  so never  take anyones  word for it when it comes to soy sauce. Of al the mixed  salads at  family mart, 7-11 and lawsons  only the gobo salad was  safe. good luck    
    • Gluten free backing food
      We are prepared for earthquakes at home, in our car and at work.  That means keeping tins of sardines, gluten-free cereal bars,  SPAM, nuts, chicken, fish, rice, etc. in our earthquake kits.  I have to go through it every three to four months to rotate out some of the foods (e.g. cereal bars).  I mark it in our planner.  It works for us.  Tasty?  Appetizing?  I bet my kid will be thankful to have food to eat in the event of an emergency.  
    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      How much fat are you consuming?  Going lower carb and not adding in fats can make you hungry.   So, do you know that Type 1 diabetes is strongly linked to celiac disease?    I would ask your doctor for a GAD antibodies test to rule out type 1.   https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/celiac disease-and-diabetes/ http://www.celiac.nih.gov/CDandDiabetes.aspx   I basically eat to my meter and that translates to a Low Carb High Fat diet.  Keeps my doctor happy with my lab results! 
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      VERY good point cyclinglady, very good point!!!!
    • Even gluten-free Foods Triggering Reaction After Initial Glutening?
      I was glutened in July.  Badly.  I have NO clue as to what got me.  I suspect two things 1) a gluten free store- brand, product that might have been mis-labeled and 2) a prescription generic medication (contacted the manufacturer to confirm a gluten-free status but got the old liability statement of no guarantees).  Both items were NEVER consumed by my gluten free hubby who acts as my canary.     I probably got glutened again by eating out while on vacation even though I only at at restaurants recommended by other celiacs.  The rest of the time I was at my parent's house and I have a dedicated kitchen there for us.   Who knows?  But I was sick with anxiety, tummy issues, vomiting, the works.  It was strange since anemia was my original symptom and I really did not have tummy issues at the time of my diagnosis.  So, celiac symptoms can evolve at least for me!  Six weeks after my first sign of a glutening, I was tested by my new GI because I was not getting well.  He thought I had SIBO or bile duct issues. I asked for celiac blood testing.    Turns out it was gluten all along!   During my glutening, I became lactose intolerant again, could only eat stewed foods because everything hurt to get through my digestive tract.   I was a basket case for three months.    Did I mention new problems resulting from my glutening?  Hives, itching, vomiting, passing out and tummy aches almost daily.  Anti-histamines helped.    My GP thinks I am her most "allergic" patient.  Except it was more like a histamine intolerance or a mast cell issue not allergies.   Who knows?  The hives eventually resolved as I healed from my glutening.    I refuse to test the two items that were suspect.    No way!    Three months later, I got dairy back.  Six months later I am eating gluten free anything....without any issues.  I also do not take any meds (except for Armour Thyroid) , supplements, eat out and I avoid even processed gluten-free items.  But, I feel great.     I suppose that I will eventually slip up and get glutened again.  But I am working hard not too.  I like feeling well.   So, really look to your diet.  I bet you just keep getting glutened.  Stick to whole foods, follow the FODMAP diet and wait.  Wait.  Wait.
