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.

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!

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.

      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
