Soy Intolerance?

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!

Thanks for letting me know. It's interesting to me to know how it affects others.

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. :)

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
