Soy Intolerance?

44 posts in this topic

If you have a soy intolerance, are the symptoms the same as being glutoned? I suspect I now have a problem with soy, but I'm not sure since this is all so new to me.

Soy can cause different symptoms in each person. Yours can be completely different from mine.

Soy causes extreme nausea in me. Your reaction could be different.

My best advise is to keep a food log and mark down any symptoms you may get. Many food reactions are delayed and having a written record helps put the puzzle together. One thing I would add..about 90% of the soy in the US has been genetically modified..around 85% of corn has too. They can cause bad reactions in our guts. I won't knowingly eat any GMO foods any more. Pay attention to your reactions to those especially.

Thanks! It makes me nauseated, too, and makes my head foggy. I am keeping a food journal.

Good advice about GMO. I didn't realize soy was a part of that. It's so frustrating that California just voted down labeling GMO foods. Also, I was shopping for flours yesterday and it seemed that most of them contained soy lechtin. Ugh.

Soy is EVIL ! :ph34r:

Most vegetable oil ( in the US) is soy oil. Due to a legal loophole it does NOT have to have an allergy warning on the label.

Vegetable oil can contain soy and not include it on the label?

yes. If your bottle of vegetable oil just says vegetable oil as the ingredients , chances are it is almost all soy oil .

,, the reasoning was something like ,, the soy oil is so processed that it is no longer considered an allergen so there for no longer need an allergen label, quite the legal loophole <_<

things like tuna ,candy, lip balm,shampoo, vitamins and much much more can contain soy . I had a harder time eliminating soy out of my diet then I did gluten .

as I said ................ Soy is evil, pure evil :ph34r:

I discovered it was in tuna after tuna started making me sick and I was trying to figure out why. Before that I never knew there was soy in tuna.

Soy is similar reaction to gluten and as above makes me super nauseated.

Can't believe it - I can't eat canned tuna either - makes me really sick.

This all came on about 3 - 4 months gluten free and I have wondered if it is one of the reasons I can't eat gluten free processed food (health bars, choc, etc) they all contain soy. In the past (pre gluten-free - I think it was soy that gave me sore breasts).

It is my belief that soy is really bad for humans - get rid of it !! (Why is it in everything anyway :angry: ).

There are soy-free tuna cans available. I don't remember the brand names but there are some. It was some kind of heath or organic brand of tuna that I saw. If you read the ingredients on most tuna it is packed in a broth that includes soy.

Starkist gold cans do not have soy. It's just tuna and water.

I'm really caught off guard by the soy intolerance, which happened, as far as I can tell, the same time as I developed either Celiac or gluten intolerance.

Soy is evil and really hard to avoid. I knew I'd get sick after eating out sometimes before my DX but never knew it was probably from the soy oil they use so much of.

The theory that there's no soy protein in the oil so shouldn't bother anyone is nonsense! It's hard to get multivitamins that are completly soy free too. The vitamin E or D they use is from cholecalciferol..usually derived from soy.

Thank Kiki, I looked at a CVS store today but all they had was Bumblebee and some off brand. The Bumblebee brand has soy in it.

My reaction to soy is severe stomach pain, nausea, and maybe D. It's been awhile. At first I wondered if it was a gluten reaction but it wasn't as bad and didn't last as long.

As for foods, well, now that I'm avoiding gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and nightshades, I am spending a LOT of time in the kitchen. EVERYTHING has to start as live food and is cooked fresh. I am eating more nuts, more eggs, more meats and way more vegetables than I did before. I am cooking a lot now and freezing some so that I can have meals during busy holiday times.

Do you have a problem with soy lechtin as well?

Soy is a real bugger.

I get lightheaded and nauseous, and the symptoms usually hit me quite shortly after eating, unlike gluten that takes a while to kick in. I can probably handle small amounts of soy lecthin if I take a digestive enzyme with it, but i've been doing my best to avoid it completely. I miss tofu thought. My bf is vegetarian, so finding/making things both of us can eat with good protein content is tricky.

even if you can eat soy, thought, GMO anything is nasty and should be avoided at all costs, so probably shouldn't be eating it too often.

Tuna is something else I only eat a few times a year because of the mercury content and the over-fishing problem. I NEVER get it in a can, so don't know about this soy broth thing. I'd say don't bother with canned tuna anymore (or switch to salmon).

As for substitutes, there's a good soy-sauce alternative made from coconut sap. It's expensive and tricky to find, but definitely nice.

And this "vegetable" oil = soy would definitely explain some issues I have with certain things that don't list soy as an ingredient. grrrr...

Make sure to check any cosmetics and such you're already using. I had a lip gloss i've been using for months that I finally looked and realised it has soy oil... oh. into the garbage it went.

It's a ton of work to cut out soy, and will probably involve more cooking from scratch, but if it makes you feel better, it's worth it.

Happy Healing

Thanks, Peg! I never would have thought to check my lip gloss for soy! Ugh.

I usually feel about the same as being glutened, just with no brain fog/headache. I'm amazed at what does have soy in it, it's everywhere!

This is how I figured out my soy problem! I didn't use a certain lip balm for two days and felt so much better!

Good to know, thanks Dave!

Being a cheapskate, I generally go for the canned mackeral myself. But once in a while I try some tuna. I just have to fight the cat off to eat it tho. :)

    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
