Soy Oh Boy

10 posts in this topic

I usually drink water with everything, but of course that does not work with cereal. So I use soy dream, which specifically says that is gluten free. I do not get the same reactions as if I ingested gluten, but the soy drink tends to produce a knid of laxative effect. Are a lot of celiacs having problems with soy? I also have probs with corn. What are replacements can be used for Soy dream that have been easier to digested. I have been currently taking DgL, the licorice root, which I will say has taken the edge of a little.

Hi Richard,

Well, sometimes when people have one allergy the other sometimes just some along with them. In this case it is probably just that. I as well use water for everything and I too have an allergy to soy beverages. The reason you are reacting is possibly due to 2 reasons:

1. You're allergic to soy.

2. The equipment used is possible used with materials used with some forms of grains.

I cant remember where I read it but "Rice Dream" I was told to not even drink because of that exact reason. Maybe it is the same with the soy? I have pretty much just given up soy all together and stick to water. You may want to research a little on certain brands of rice milk and check with the companies to see if they are gluten-free and also process it on "clean" machines. meaniung not used as the same machine as somehting that can hurt you.

As for the corn allergy, it is in my case just one of those additional foods on the forbidden list. Do a trial and error. See what forms if all or just some bother you. Maybe start a food diary to see what happens when and yadda yadda. its helped me a ton!!!

Good luck!

Soy is on my watch list.

I haven't isolated it yet but most of the time I eat anything with soy I get a similar reaction as you.

I use Pacific Almond Milk and haven't had any issues.It is gluten-free.

It's very good and a excellent source of calcium.

What is DgL?

I have bad reactions to a lot of soy products but most that say gluten free and contain soy are okay for me. I try to avoid it all together. Maybe, you should try the same. Good luck!

I was going to suggest the same thing.... the almond milk or maybe even goat's milk. Those are the alternatives I can think of. I know that the rice milk specifically says that it is made from a barley enzyme, but I don't think that is the same with soy. I don't know....

Sorry

Steve, DGL is a licorice root that helps support stomach lining and intestinal contractions. I am not actually sure how to spell out the whole word..deglycyrihizinate..I think. You chew two tablets 20 minutes before eating. I has deifinitely helped with the bloating.

Richard,

Thanks for the info. I've actually been drinking Yogi Egyptian Licorice Tea( recommended by dietitian) and it does help.

Hi Heather,

Many licorice candy products contain wheat, but natural licorice root is gluten-free. You can get gluten-free licorice candy and the DGL supplements are good for aiding digestion, but certainly don't taste much like licorice! Read every label if you do try to get some licorice. Running Rabbit brand makes black cherry, raspberry and black licorice flavored candies. They are all gluten-free!

Richard, I am allergic to soy (I get very itchy!) and I am intolerant to dairy, so I have almond milk on my cereal. I use Blue Diamond Almond Breeze. It does have a small amount of soy lecithin in it, but not enough to bother me. Other than that, you could try Mocha Mix (original, NOT fat free). It is dairy free and soy free. I water it down. About 3 parts water to 1 part mocha mix. It makes a good milk replacement for baking as well as for cereal.

God bless,

Mariann

So far, I've had excellent luck with the Silk brand of soy milk. For me, milk allergy goes along with the gluten/wheat thing, so I have to be extra careful not to get any dairy of any kind. You might try Silk.

If it keeps up, though, see an allergist. They can do a skin test for food allergies and this helped me tremendously! I am not allergic to wheat, but am intolerant of wheat/gluten.

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
