Exposure To Something
0

6 posts in this topic

I have been off of gluten for I month now with 2 accidental exposures. This morning I woke up feeling like I was exposed but I know that I wasn't as I am extremely careful. Congestion, very tired & fatigued, headache,head foggy. I took liquid geritol yesterday evening & it contains soy. When I inquired about this to the receptionist at the naturopath's office, she stated soy in vitamins are different. Is this true? That seems to be the only thing that could be causing me to feel Ike this.

I have a new problem with soy and I have learned that it depends if it is the soy protein that is used. My understanding is that is where the allergens come from. I don't know why this soy garbage is permeating the gluten-free food and so many others. Processed soy uses all kinds of chemicals if my sources were accurate. I try to avoid it all together. If it bothers you and makes you feel worse eliminate it.

I don't know why this soy garbage is permeating the gluten-free food and so many others.

Because it is cheap, because growing it is heavily subsidized by the government(s), because what they don't use for fattening hogs and cattle on feedlots has to go somewhere, and their lobbyists are always promoting it to the baking industry. And there are a whole slew of people with financial interests in the GMO marketing aspects who run around the internet attacking anyone who suggests that soy might not be good for you, irregardless of their other conditions. They like to pretend they're all really heavily into caring for the environment and green stuff, until you mention that Brazil is cutting down rainforest in the Amazon to grow more soy, then they get a bit.... aggravated. <_<:blink:;)

Two weeks ago I took a prenatal vitamin with soy in it for three days and I felt awful. It's possible that it made you feel sick. I assume that soy is soy, no matter what form it comes in.

My daughter is allergic to soy, ginger, sesame, and garlic.

Those 4 ingredients seem to be in everything!

Now I'm watching for those 4 for her, plus gluten for me.

It's crazy what's mixed in with your foods!

:angry:

    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.   
    • Hello we got her biopsy results back and they are normal.  The doc is calling her non celiac gluten intolerant and lactose intolerant.  Now we will just wait to see if the gluten-free diet helps her.  She does have elevated IgG to casein and wheat  I know there is controversy on whether that test is helpful or not but either way we are hoping she gets well going gluten-free    
    • My family was out camping earlier this month to our favorite lake.  They have a restaurant there we have going to for years.  Since I recently went gluten free, I was very nervous about trying out their menu.  Usually, restaurants have a select few items you can choose from that are considered "gluten-free" (i.e. Olive Garden).  However, this restaurant even had French Fries that were in a separate fryer than the rest of fry population.  I considered it a huge treat when they not only went out of their way to make sure you could get sandwiches gluten-free, but also had French fries and a dessert available.  The best part of it was I didn't get sick afterwards.  Yahoo!  Thank goodness it's 3 hours away.
    • too many of us are treated this way, unfortunately   ^^^^^  and many of us have been in the same (no quality of life!  always sick! )  situation and yes, it can be life threatening if left untreated.  so glad you're feeling better   no thanks to the almighty doctor  i have a celiac diagnosis and my g.p. (who i go to - or used to go to - for my check ups, see how my blood pressure is, vitamin levels, etc.  normal maintenance, you know) tried to give me viberzi!!  for my ibs-d !!  what???  i have celiac.  i was furious!!  (i'm still pretty upset)   o, the good news was that he gave me a coupon for the first month.  after that, it's THIRTY DOLLARS A MONTH.   not to mention all the lovely side effects (one of them was diarrhea!!)   no, thanks, buddy....   anyways, rant over lolz - welcome to the forum!
    • Those numbers are all perfect meaning they show you likely don't have celiac.  Those tests are very accurate IF you are eating a normal diet of gluten.  You must be eating gluten for weeks prior to this testing.  So if you have not been then yes these results are not accurate.
