Soy?

15 posts in this topic

Well, its currently 3 am where i'm at and i can't sleep at all. I feel like, in whatever position i lay, i'm goin to fall, my limbs feel fatigued, as do my eyes. My allergies are going as well, so thats not helping any.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why.

The night before last i had to stay up and only get like 2 hours of sleep due to homework -_- but last night i got about 9 and then earlier today i got a small 2 hour nap in.

The only thing different that i have done was take the maximum of my cranberry pills, and the only main problemish thing with them is that they contain soy. OH... and i've still got "C". -_-

I'm so bloody tired that i can't sleep, i've somehow rubbed my tounge on the side of my retainer and its sorta sore (happens every so often).

I also sleep with a wedge pillow to keep my GERD from acting up at night.

Here is what i ate:

rice chex (and two cranberry pills)

peanut butter and honey on corn tortilla (haven't had in a while but sounded good along with two more pills)

chicken, carrot, and rice soup (and the final two pills).

I followed the instructions to a "T" with them, so yeah i don't know.

I'm really tired atm, so i appologize for any errors.

Soy does me in. Insomnia is one of my glutening symptoms and soy does the same thing to me. I avoid it like the plague.

Ugh this sucks. I'm bloated, my stomach is trying to kill me, my wonderful monthly gift decided to show up again, my tounge is irritated, and i'm in the middle of a philosophy class. Two hours of sleep is not fun.

Im thinking it was the pills. I do fine with pb and honey along with my corn tortillas. Same with chex and soup.

I hooe it isnt the cranberry part though.

Another idea is that maybe it was cc'd? Its labled gluten free, dye free, dairy freee etc.

I reeeeeallly hope it isn't soy thats doing this though. I mean come on :( its in my bisquick and my alfredo (i'm going to learn how to make it homemade for GP though).

Pretty sure it wasn't dairy as i haven't had any dairy in nearly a week.

Your peanut butter wasn't one of those recalled brands, was it?

How about the peanut butter? Does it have soy? most of them do unless you go for the organic or natural versions.

Ooh, soy...

Have you had trouble with soy before? Can you eat soy-based things like tofu and soy-sauce and such? Or have those been cut out for a while?

I stopped eating soy around the beginning of the year when I noticed (after cutting out casein a few months before) it made my head all floaty, aggravating my "vertigo" symptoms that had gotten better when I stopped eating dairy. Now, no soy for me and I didn't feel dizzy all the time this summer! Yay! But it sucks. I miss tofu, and it's harder to avoid even than gluten or dairy.

Maybe you should try cutting it out for a while and see if it helps. If it's only in your supplements and such, then it might be something else, but we do get more sensitive to things if we haven't been eating them for a while. So best to cut it out and see.

I hope you feel better soon! You've been having a rough time lately.

That's good. lately I've been getting peanut butter at a health food store. They have a grinder so you just flip the switch and fill up a container. Nothing but ground peanuts in it.

I can't eat carrots. We can develop intolerances to any food, so it is good to look at everything and consider eliminating the possible culprits.

I really haven't. Thats what got me thinking that it might be it.

Yeah, soy is sneaky. It's like, one day you're fine with it and the next day you're not. I was doing fine with soy until suddenly tofu would kill me. Now even small amounts, like soy lectin and such, can bother me (seems to be ok in small amounts if I take a digestive enzyme with it, but I don't buy anything with soy in it any more.)

It's worth a try.

When I was first not aware of my soy allergy, the cranberry pills made me sick. Most cranberry pills contain soy. Avoid them if they don't say soy free. Also, Rice Chex may be gluten free, but their not soy free. Rice Chex have vitamins which most certainly contain soy. Honey, unless it is locally sources is from China... soy again. Your peanut butter is a legume which you should also be avoiding, but some peanut butters contain soy also (hydrogenated vegetable oils). Hope this helps, but basically you ate soy all day that's why you're sick.

Eh, i don't think i have a problem with it then. I eat chex all the time with no issues, the same with peanut butter and honey. I think at the time the cran berry pills were to cause.

I hope you're right! Soy is one of the worst things to avoid. I do ok-ish if I have small amounts, but damn, I miss tofu and real soy sauce, and all that. I might challenge it soon as see what happens, but I don't have high hopes.

Also, cranberry is a diuretic, right? Maybe there are dangers to having too much? Are you taking them as a digestive aid? Maybe find an alternative?

Hope you're feeling better soon!

    • I was only asking because when ferritin is low that you can experience hair loss/fatigue etc. even if your other iron levels are in range. This just happened to me so I thought I would share just in case it helps you. Ferritin should be above 50 to be optimal, not just "in range."  I've been on iron supplements and much better now. This may not be your problem at all, but I would have them check your ferritin levels. Low iron or anemia is common with celiac. The ferritin test is measuring how much iron is stored in your body. FYi: Iron binding capacity is really telling you how much protein your liver is making in order to carry that iron around. Usually, iron binding capacity will be higher in the range when iron is low. Edit: Also my blood pressure was low when my ferritin level got very low.
    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area. 
    • Thanks for all of the replies. I've just found out I'm not getting to see a dietician because of not having a definite diagnosis which is another blow. I've had loads of bloods done but they just say they're all normal. I did have low vitamin D and high parathyroid but it's sorted itself out after a course of high dose vitamin D and they're not checking it again for a year. No chance of getting referred to endocrinology, gastro won't do it and neither will my gp. I've tried giving up coffee and all fizzy juice and it hasn't made a difference. I'm exhausted and scared and still have no clue what to do next. My gp has zero experience dealing with this type of thing - last time I was there she said it could be because I've restricted my diet too much and I should eat more gluten-free replacement products - everything I've read online says this is the worst thing to do! I'm asking for a copy of the last blood results this week so I can go through them myself but other than that I'm pretty stuck. 
    • I really am iffy on talking about this side of my gluten issues, I think I am about to ruin my reputation on this forum coming about as some extreme crazy guy saying this but I wanted to get this off my chest and perhaps see if anyone else might share a similar trauma. I get emotional recalling it, this side of my reactions, as it is most ingrained and very traumatizing experience, and I am not proud of it as the mentality I have now disgust me but I am going to come out about it. One of the scariest things in this world is when your own mind turns against you, when you can not think about what you want to think about, when you can not do what you know you should be able to do. When I got glutened really bad these where things I felt with my own mind would start looping, and thoughts would not come together. I would loose comprehension, feel like I know I should be able to think about something but my mind was not working. The same thing looped over and over and over like a broken record, This led to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, top it off with loss of feeling in my hands and feet, and the pains in the gut......it was a nightmare. I would go as far as beating my head against walls and punching them out of frustration as to why my own body and mind where not working, I just wanted it to end the pain to stop. I still have scars on my fist from punching into a nail in a stud once and kept going.....I scared everyone and myself distanced my self from loved ones. And started running a bucket list accepting that I was going to die soon. Hell to this day parts of the brain damage seem to be permanent as I can no longer do computer programing or some forms of math, they just no longer make any sense or connect. Then we learned what was causing it, and once the symptoms started to fade, I would get very angry if someone in the shared house did something stupid and got me sick again. The fear of going back to that caused violent and drastic actions to get away from what was making me sick. The sheer fear of my own mind turning on me led me to drastic actions to prevent it, throwing everything away I thought could make me sick, making sure no one else used that kitchen, used freezer paper and gloves when fixing my foods and working in there. I really destroyed and burned all bridges I had then and alienated myself from others. In the end it motivated me to learn how to cook, to get and renovate my own apartment in a building downtown, and start a business to pay for my new diet, by selling safe food to others with this issues locally at farmer markets. But it changed me on a very deep level, that traumatic experience to this day I have a issue looking at others and dealing with other humans who eat that stuff.......the stuff that breaks my mind and body so horrifically. If I have to compare it to something its like watching aliens drinking antifreeze and eating poison.....it causes a subconscious level of disgust and slight envy. I really can not even look at the stuff without recall what it does and feeling a twitch. I know I am the alien here, but it feels vise versa, and I look down on the normal people as odd creatures.  I go to the store and find myself overly avoiding contamination, keeping stuff in my own bags, asking the cashier to scan and bag it as I pass it not letting it touch that flour I see on the belt. I am hyper sensitive to the stuff I know and that fear semi dominates my mind as crazy as it sounds.  I am recovering and am forcing myself to try to mingle with other humans overlooking that one thing, but that deep rooted trauma still flares up as a protective measure especially around foods.  I could talk on and on about the other side effects but this one is the hardest to talk about it, and I feel others might be able to relate to it.    
    • Time.  You need time to heal.  Yeah, I am like a broken record!  😄 So...Lycra is your best friend for now (that and old baggy sweats!).  Hang in there!  Hugs!
