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:

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
