For Those Of You That Are Soy Sensitive...

7 posts in this topic

I am self diagnosed (and don't really care to have the "official" diagnosis) and have been gluten free a little over 1 month. I am beginning to suspect that I have additional intollerances as well. I cut out dairy a few days ago because I noticed my stomach would hurt after my morning coffee (with half and half.) I am now suspecting soy as well after I ate some tofu last night because I was up at 2 am with a headache and a bad stomachh ache. Also last night I noticed my ankles were swollen - something that was resolved going gluten free.

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

For me it depends on the type of soy I eat. Soy flour, soy milk or basically any straight form of soy (edamame, tofu, etc) will give me bad cramping like you are describing. Soybean oil or light soy cc gives me headaches. I also have swollen hands, swollen ankles and joint pain and fatigue when I eat soy on a regular basis. It may be that you are soy sensitive and it wouldn't hurt to try cutting it out as well. You can always try adding some back in again in a few months to test it.

UGH...I was really hoping that I wouldn't have to do an elimination diet but it seems that might be the only way. I'm afraid that my DH is being to think that I am just making up these extra food intollerances for attention since I am no longer sick all the time from gluten.

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 :(

i am trying my best to avoid soy because it aggravates Grave's antibodies.. BUT- its in freaking EVERYTHING- even my beloved gluten-free Chipotle :(

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.

When we first give up gluten it is such a relief to our bodies that they put the antibody guards on leave and leave some sentinel enforcers behind just in case we forget ourselves. If these sentinel guards come in contact with gluten they come down on it very hard - your body says "Oh no, I thought I got rid of that stuff. Give it the chop" :D:lol:

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 :D )

Mushroom you are amazing.

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.

For me, I have vertigo,ringing in my ears ,brain fog and other neurological symptoms. I also have digestive issues, the hole in the gut feeling,cramping ect... The one that concerns me the most is blood in my stool. That only happens when I eat something with soy in it.

    • 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.    
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      Chiro?  Hubby went to one with a shoulder injury as recommended by our GP. It was a great experience.    I always resisted.  Why?  Just a "gut" feeling.  Good thing.  My bones started fracturing on their own.  I can not imagine anyone manipulating me now.  If you have celiac disease, get a bone scan first.  Just saying.......
    • Gluten or SIBO; Should I gluten challenge to find out?
      Noobette, sure did use gluten-free oats! I even had to test the oats alone before the test as they sometimes give me problems, probably due to fodmap.  As an update, my symptoms became bad enough that we aborted the challenge. My colleague revealed I was eating the gluten! So I skipped the decoy sample to just get this over with. I'm not sure that my symptoms were celiac, but they were bad either way. Headaches, blurpy noisy gut, fatigue, fogginess, bloating, gas, pains. But those are vague, I'll find out for sure in a few more weeks. 
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      After my blood test (DGP IgA positive), I went crazy eating gluten until my endoscopy.  Because of work issues, I waited for seven weeks.  Seven weeks of saying goodbye to my favorite gluteny foods!  I knew what was coming going gluten free since my hubby has been gluten free for over 14 years.  I was eating a loaf of sourdough a day besides cakes and cookies.  Yum!  But the bad news was that by the time my endoscopy rolled around, I was experiencing tummy issues (just had anemia before).  So, my advice is to take time to say goodbye to gluten, but do not be a glutton (like me!)  
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      It's okay if you have more than 1 cracker a day; the challenge is saying you must have at least 1 cracker a day so if you want to have more that's absolutely fine. In fact, if you want to gorge on all your favorite gluten goodies from now until the endoscopy then have at it because it looks like you'll be saying goodbye to it all after the endoscopy. You say it's about a month till you see the GI doc..... it will be longer until an endoscopy because the GI will have to order it & it will have to get scheduled.
