Soy/gluten Intolerant People, I Have A Question
0

12 posts in this topic

For those of you that are soy and gluten intolerant (including Celiac disease) like me, I have a question. Does soy cause you to have reactions as severe as gluten reactions? Or are they just annoying and nowhere near as bad as getting a gluten reaction?

My soy reaction presents as a bright red rash and extreme itching.

My soy and gluten reactions are similar, but different. My reactions to being glutened are usually delayed. My reaction to soy are more immediate, usually within the hour of consumption. As far as what the symptoms are for me, both exposures cause nausea, intestinal cramping and bloating, and usually diarrhea (more so with soy).

A gluten exposure will take the body (villi) weeks to recover from. For me, a soy reaction is usually cleared within 24 hours.

My reactions to soy are much different than my reactions to gluten. Soy binds me up really bad but I don't get the same neuro effects and arthritic pain that I get from gluten. Soy also makes me feel like my intestines are swollen but doesn't give me the bloat and gas that I get from gluten. Gluten also makes my ataxia worse, makes my hair fall out and once I get D, about 3 days after contact, I then have 3 days of GI bleeding and pass clots. That doesn't happen with the soy. The soy reaction also passes fairly quickly with gluten I am sick for up to 3 weeks.

Soy causes the symptoms I used to get with gluten...stomach cramping, diarrhea, and I am sick for at least 3 weeks...gluten now is mostly neurological symptoms, yet my tummy isn't right for 3 weeks to 4 months.

You may be actually reacting to MSG (found in all soy products) and other foods (whole foods) that contain naturally occuring glutamates. I recently discovered this through researching for info and reviewing my food/medication/cosmetics diary. MSG and aspartate (artifiicial sweeteners) are both strong excitotoxins to the brain and can cause GI and neuro problems/symptoms. After almost three years of suffering from myoclonus, I have recently made this discovery. Gluten (gluten grains), Dairy, corn, and soy have the higest level of glutamic acid.

"Whole Foods" containing high levels (which triggered my myoclonus) include: Shrimp and shellfish, Parmesan cheese (and many cheeses), mushrooms, tomatoes, Boar's head deli meats, Boar's head hot dogs, many chicken broths that contain yeast extract, products containing hydrolyzed vegetable or soy proteins or hydrolyzed "anything". Most nuts (cashews are the worst), most beans (but not all), gelatin found in capsules, ice cream and some gluten-free flours...and commerically produced gluten-free bread! Most toothpastes and tooth whiteners contain artificial sweeteners. I reacted severely to Aquafresh White trays two weeks ago. Many cosmetic products also contain glutamates. I am currently investigating my Garnier hair color because I see one ingredient that could be a strong possibility. There are so many products containing hidden Glutamates but it is well worth considering as you may find a substantial improvement in symptoms if you make a "connection" with this.

My gluten reactions are annoying, my soy reactions are more extreme.

Soy gets me faster than gluten with acne around my mouth and jaw line. I do recover within a day with soy but takes me a few days with gluten (fog and tiredness).

My soy reaction is worse and more immediate than my gluten reaction. For me soy even small amounts of soy trigger within about an hour stomach cramps, then within 3-4 hours anxiety and insomnia, and hot flashes. Larger amounts of soy trigger moderate myoclonus and panic attacks in addition. It takes me about 1 to 2 weeks to recover from soy reaction. The anxiety and insomnia are the last things to go.

My soy reaction involved massive bloating, diarrhea and cramps so bad I thought I was having a baby. It doesn't last as long, usually a day.

My gluten reaction usually involves anxiety, nausea, sleeplessness, fatigue, shakiness and weakness. It usually lasts over a week.

I have the same problems with soy as Sylvia Ann has. If you take foods high in glutamates like soy and then process it, the glutamates are freed. If your sensitive to MSG (many people are and don't know it) you'll react to soy. Free Glutamates causes neurons or receptor cells to fire sometimes to the point of death. We have alot of these cells lining our digestive tract, along our heart, and across the brain or BBB.

Processed soy will in turn give me headaches, stomach distress and at night I'll wake up because my heart is beating like crazy in my chest. Then insomnia will follow. Not fun.

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both. 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
