Soy - Can Heal?
0

6 posts in this topic

Good day I have a general question about Soy - Our son tested as high allergy to Soy but we see no visible signs of it ourselves.

In fact he insists he is not allergic to gluten or soy because he does not have full blown anaphylactic reactions like his father does to peanuts and fish.

I tried to ask about leaky gut as the cause but they said no - maybe they do not believe in it? That he will never heal and will always be reactive to soy.

Since we do not see any outward signs of allergy do we need to avoid it 100% and be paranoid about it or just an awareness of it and do our best to avoid it. It is in basically everything and we have cleaned out the fridge and cupboards due to the soy and gluten. Or could it be doing inner damage such as cognitive / or internal organ damage, setting the stage for cancer, etc?

The testing was done through enterolabs - should we take him to a traditional allergists - which we've done in the past - about 8 years ago - just to verify the soy allergy? We have no insurance to speak of so all this is being paid for by ourselves.

Does anyone have any links to reaseach about soy damage if one ingests it while "allergic"?

We have cut out all grains, sugar, soy, - we are doing the Specific Carbohydrate Diet to heal but would like to know there is an end in sight if possible - or if we need to face reality and know this is for life.

Thanks for all your help, I have another post with questions in the pre test forum.

Blue-Skye,

The enterolab tests don't test for immediate reaction allergies. As far as I know their test is similar to delayed reaction allergies (or intolerances).

The gluten and soy could cause intestinal damage, joint pain. Don't remember if soy can cause neurological problems or not.

I've posted a couple different articles on soy in this category. I'll see if I can find them and post the links.

Ok here is a link....

My daughter is allergic to soy. She does not have the life threatening kind of allergy and in her case the reaction will vary. She once got stomach pains while eating soy containing crackers. But usually her symptoms are skin rashes and nosebleeds. Took me a while to figure out that the nosebleeds were related to soy and peanuts. She usually has a bleed the day after eating the offending food. Also her behavior gets bad if she eats something she is allergic to. She gets really cranky and can't pay attention.

What I would do is to make a deal with him to completely cut out soy for a set period of time. A month or two? Then reintroduce it and see what happens.

I'm not up on the details of soy intolerance, but if it's anything like gluten intolerance, he'll feel so great off soy and so awful on it that it will be his choice to stay off of it and you won't have to police it.

I only did the genetic test through Enterolab (we couldn't afford the rest at the time). I did also notice a complete soy intolerance just a few weeks after going gluten-free. I had the soy intolerance for about two months and then it went away. Other food intolerances are common with celiac and gluten intolerance, some of which are permanent and others that are temporary.

I hope he feels better.

OK my wheels are turning - he will be 13 on June 23rd. That would be about 3 months. I'm thinking maybe we could do a complete avoidance until then and then he could go to his favorite Chinese restaurant to see how he does. He begs for this restaurant. How much soy would we have to put back in - for how many "x" number of days?

I'd hate to put soy back in thinking there was no problem but it took several months to see the problem again - then we'd have to start over trying to get things healed and back to a great position.

We have cut soy and gluten (as well as sugar and processed foods) out of the home 100% - it is not in the home in any form - but he has been allowed teriyaki beef a few times at his favorite Chinese restaurant in the last 9 weeks.

My biggest problem is that I know what healthy eating entails and my thoughts were always that a bit of unhealthy here and there would not kill you - and hubby has anaphylactic reactions to peanuts and fish so I know what that does to a person but this subtle under the surface sensitivity being serious (as in needing to be 100% with zero tollerance for infractions) has been hard to drill into my hard head.

Not eating out has been our biggest struggle - learning curve. When one is tired or out and about it was just easier to eat out - but it seems there is gluten and/or soy in everything - at least at the grocery store all the premade stuff has it. I went to buy beef sausage this week and it had soy, I had to put it back and choose a brand not on sale. Then I realized the spices probably had gluten in it. This can be hard sometimes. Just easier to stick with all fresh foods to be 100% sure?

Keep in mind that most soy sauce contains soy AND gluten (wheat). So if he's been eating teriakyi beef, I doubt he's been gluten free.

    • Formal dinner suggestions
      You could take shrimp cocktail -- just ice it & no need for heating that then. How about following up with some coconut crusted fish with some nice veggies on the side? That could just be nuked to reheat & only takes a minute or two. Make sure when they put it in the microwave that it is covered in case there is gluten lurking on the ceiling of the microwave that can fall down into his food.
    • Formal dinner suggestions
      Hi people. I'd just like some ideas for what I can take for V to a formal family dinner. Unfortunately the restaurant has stated there is no gluten-free safe option so I have to take his meal and dessert.  I can make him gluten-free chocolate cake so thats fine.  But its a three course dinner, and I need to transport it there. Hopefully they will be happy to heat it if needed.  Something really nice and special would be good because everyone else will be eating really  nice meals.  
    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      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!
