Soy Sauce Worse Than Bread?
0

8 posts in this topic

So I'm eating gluten again before my biopsy to make sure I am a celiac. (I chose this because I didn't feel much better after going gluten free), so I've been eating gluten for almost 3 weeks again. I have a lot more gas, and I'm more tired brain fog I think, kinda hard to tell.

Anyways, never had upset stomach or diarrhea or anything immediate from eating gluten, and I just ate soy sauce, supposedly with gluten for the first time since being diagnosed, at a restaurant. My stomach feels awful, and it started like 5 10 minutes after eating it. So I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with soy sauce in particular being worse for them than other sources of gluten, or if there's any chemistry/biology behind why it perhaps might be? I eat soy a couple times a week regularly, in tofu and gluten-free soy sauce (the brand I used to buy was gluten-free anyways) so I don't think its just the soy.

I did read someone's blog about realizing soy sauce made them sick and are now a celiac, and they realized it was the soy sauce because they lived in Japan, came home for xmas in the US and felt fine, and then felt sick again when they wnet back because soy sauce was eaten at like, every meal. Presumably the person ate some form of gluten back in the US too though..?

Sometimes a bunch of MSG will get me, and soy sauce has plenty of it!

For me it would be a double wammy because I don't tolerate soy. I do miss soy sauce.

If you are back on gluten for testing your reactions may also be building up. It can take a bit to react when we add it back in so not all notice stomach issues as the first symptom.

Triple threat for me --gluten, soy and MSG! :blink:

I'd be so sick, dazed and have such a pounding headache and racing heart ....I'd want to die. <_<

I used to eat Chinese food before DX and wonder why I felt so bad.

I can do a little soy lecithin and a little soybean oil in things now, but I avoided it totally for a year. But I am not a soy fan anyway. Tofu? blech. :lol:

(and from all I have read, yes, soy depresses the thyroid and affects estrogen levels as well)

Not the best food for most of us, I am thinking. :unsure:

I'd be in the same boat with IrishHeart. I react to all 3 too. Even before I was DXed with Celiac I knew soy sauce bothered me. :blink:

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
