For Those Of You That Are Soy Sensitive...

So, if you react to soy are your reactions similar?

Why is it that all these additional food intollerances are so severe now that we have cut out the gluten? Is it because we just felt bad all the time we never noticed it? Are our systems MORE sentitive to it now that we have begun healing from gluten? I got glutened off of a gluten free menu the other day and I actually THREW UP before I even left the restaurant! I have NEVER thrown up from celiac disease before

anyways... not sure of my reactions- i seem to react to different forms of soy... i used to eat tofu and gluten-free soy sauce with no reactions... and miso soup too... but some soy byproducts in salad dressings or prepared meals give me allergic reactions, and a hot nausea ... and then soy flour used in gluten-free baked goods has always given me mild crampy gas. its weird- MOST legumes give me semi painful gas... yet like i said before- tofu, and miso soup had never bothered me.

Yes, the reaction can be much stronger than previously.
The additional intolerances start showing up for a couple of reasons. 1. the response to the gluten was so overwhelming to your body that it was too feeble to complain about the other things and if it did they were just little voices crying in the wilderness; 2. the gluten has given you what is called a leaky gut, which lets larger particles of food into the bloodstream than it should. These large particles are not recognized by the body as friend, so become foe and the body sets up an autoimmune response in an attempt to get rid of them. Anything you eat a lot of is a candidate to become an intolerance so try to keep you diet as varied as possible (within your food limitations, that is )

To the OP:
My symptoms are slight headache-
not the migraine I get with gluten.
And...swelling...my face, eyelids, ankles, feet and hands are visibly swollen if I eat any of the soy...
I'm still puzzling out reactions too, but so far I can tell these are definitely related to soy.
Sometimes D..but no stomache ache..weird.
Good luck and hope you feel better soon.
