Soy Intolerance?

Good to

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. :)

LOL! Starkist gold can is soy free. Costco Kirkland tuna is soy free and cheaper.

I had no idea I was eating so many things with soy in them. It's shocking to me.

Yep, they put soy, dairy, and gluten in a whole lot of processed foods. It is very common to find one of those 3 or all of them in processed food-like products. Along of course with food preservatives, (anti-bacterials) food colorings, emulsifiers, stabilizers, fillers, and spitballs. Ok, kidding on the last one. :)

Well, thanks to this thread and after feeling pretty darn lousy following my tofu dinner the other night, I've decided to try a week soy-free. Since my gut reactions are immediate and quite, um, obvious, I figure I should know right away if that is an issue. I have lactose intolerance and have tested corn, eggs and grains in general but never thought about soy being a problem.

Has anyone with soy intolerance experienced heart palpitations, and mood changes? I have been off soy for about three months, and after eating some chocolates my students gave me, thinking that a bit of soy lechitin would be a problem, I had racing heartbeat, tremors, and a kind of panic attack (my mother, who was talking to me, said that I sounded and seemed on drugs), followed by the onset of a headache that lasted for about half a day. I tried the experiment again a couple of times, with a smaller quantity, and the same happened heart palpitations, tremors, confusion, and then severe headache and sluggishness. But I never think of tachycardia as a symptom of intolerance, or am I wrong?

I get severe mood changes with all legumes - peanuts are the worst as far as anger, anxiety, sadness. Peas and beans are like sleeping pills and soy is major abdominal bloating along with melancholy.

Haven't noted tachycardia per se, put I do know that certain foods do cause palpitations and anxiety.

For me ,,ingesting soy causes palpitations and anxiety amoung other symptoms ( such as confusion, headache,dizziness ,brain fog,ringing in my ears,constipation, ect......)I feel like my heart is racing ( and my normal heart rate is low )

Many of my food intolerances have an effect on my heart. Racing heart, arrhythmia, dizzziness, fainting... eventually led to atrial fibrillation because I didn't know what was causing it and it occurred so frequently. Interestingly enough, I can now manage a little soy lecithin as in chocolate :D:D

Wow, thanks... I am afraid I will have to stay away from even that for a while, because my heart beats too weird. My grandmother also died of the complications of an atrial fibrillation (rhyme not intended!) which occurred when she was in her 80s, I think. I am not sure I want to try the experience, even if I am not that old! :P

I was "shipped" straight to a cardiologist with a heart scare and tremors this summer, which happened over a period in which I was living off tofu and soy-based bars (I know, 50 shades of wrong, never gonna do as badly as that ever again), so I wonder if that was a cause. My heartrate now seems back in place, provided that I steer clear of the above, and sugar.

Good luck. Let me know how it goes.

Scary! I'll be curious to know how you feel off of soy.

My heart rate dropped dramatically. Was it the absence of soy? Was it the resumed cardio? I could barely walk at 4 mph without feeling pain when I was eating that much soy. I am also less "crazy" in general. Was it the absence of soy? Was it the breathing exercises? I am not sure. But when I feel that awful, to be honest, I'm not really that curious. I sort of just want to find the combination of diet/therapy/lifestyle that will make me feel able to live life again. As of now, all my tests came back negative (no endoscopy performed), so I don't have celiac disease. But there is no doubt that my gut is messed up, and since starting the gluten-free diet, I am able to leave the house without having to choose between either fasting or needing a ladies' room at hand. Sorry, TMI!

Eating two truffles made with soy lechitin means pounding palpitations (I can feel them in my stomach) and chest pain; then, if I have consumed more than that, comes GI distress: bloating, and running for the bathroom. Not even coffee does that to me.

Sorry to bump this up, but I am kind of worried at this point. I have accidentally soyed myself (WHO on earth thinks it's a great idea to put soy in herbal tea???) this morning. I have had palpitations all day, and people talking to me said I was irritable and confused, and at a certain point I felt that my heart was going very fast and then kind of "stopped" (I don't know how to describe it) with two very string thuds. It happened three or four times in the afternoon. And it was almost painful. And I was lying on a sofa, not going around. I could not do much more beside, because the whole room was spinning around me for an hour or so.

Do I need to call my doctor about the heart thing?

YES! When in doubt == Emergency Room - better to error on the side of caution.

We are not doctors on this board...simply other folks with Celiac Disease, NCGI or other food intolerances -- if you are experiencing new serious symptoms, please consult a physician.

Thank you for helping me in my freak out.

I called my doc - apparently it was a case of extrasystole somehow related to the exposure to foods/substances I am reacting to. I have been keeping a diary, and it looks like each accidental exposure makes me react worse and worse.

I am feeling slowly better.

Yes, tachicardia mostly gone, or gone enough to zumba. Tummy still so so.

Good to hear your heart has settled - scary stuff.

Tummy may have ups and downs for a while.

Hang in there :)

    • Tell your medical doctor that you want a full Celiac panel before you go gluten-free.  A family history of Celiac should be enough reason to run one every couple of years.  The stool tests aren't considered medically valid, so they probably won't accept those.  It would be good to know if you actually have Celiac.  That would tell you how careful you have to be with gluten consumption.  If you don't have Celiac, it will make your life easier...you can still be gluten-free but you might be able to do things like take a burger off a bun and eat at most restaurants safely.
    • Sure, if you are feeling better from the Celiac, now you might notice other things you didn't before.     a very real possibility is that you have changed your diet and are now eating something you didn't eat much of before.  Or you are eating larger or smaller amounts of protein or fiber....that sort of thing
    • This board is quite old but I'm hoping someone can continue on this topic. I am 61 years old and in all my life and doctors' visits, I have never had a western doctor ask me if I have a family history of celiac or suggest a gluten free diet. In all honesty, I have only started having what could be considered "gluten sensitive" symptoms within the past 2 years - chronic, unexplained bouts of diarrhea, mainly. Although bloodwork has shown in the past 2 years I now have high cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and a bone density scan showed osteopenia. My PCP put me on meds for everything, of course. I recently began seeing a naturopath - and when I was running down my health history and list of symptoms she immediately asked about the family history of celiac. My father was positively diagnosed, through biopsy, with celiac sprue about 25 years ago, when nobody talked about gluten sensitivity. Anyway, she had me do the full panel testing at Enterolab. I have one celiac gene and a gene that indicates neurological manifestations of gluten sensitivity (I have long been plagued with panic attacks and depression). I also showed extremely high (215 units, below 10 is normal) for fecal anti-gliadin and varying high results for dairy, eggs and soy. My fat malabsorption stool test also tested high (431 units and normal is less than 300). The interpretation from Enterolab and my naturopath both strongly advised I eliminate gluten from my diet for the rest of my life. Naturopath said after a year or two I may be able to try introducing limited dairy, eggs and soy back; but not until the glutin response is completely under control. I am really struggling with this. Everyone I've talked to (including adult children, spouse, other family members, friends) is skeptical about me making such a radical change in my (our) diets based on these results. They seem to view gluten sensitivity as a "fad" and think I am going off the deep end. "Get a second opinion" - or "talk to your PCP about it". I've read enough to know that my PCP will not be of much help. And since I really only had one irritating symptom that could be related to gluten sensitivity, it's not like my life will be radically improved by going gluten free. I guess I could choose to ignore the test results - for now. I'm trying to view going gluten, dairy, egg and soy free as preventative and something that will contribute to a healthier life as I age. But it's so hard ... especially when the people who mean the most to me think I'm over-reacting and kind of cuckoo. Can anyone help me out here? I feel so alone ...  
    • Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum but am so happy to have found somewhere where people living with coeliac can share their thoughts! I've only been gluten-free for two weeks.  About three days in, I started experiencing awful heartburn which hasnt let up and I'm wondering if anyone else had this after giving up gluten? It wasn't a typical symptom for me before so feeling very uncomfortable.  I am not due to see my gastro consultant again until December and my GP (who was about as helpful as a chocolate teapot!) just gave me lansoprazole (its a PPI) which isnt even touching it.  Just wondering if giving up gluten is unmasking other symptoms or if this is a normal or common withdrawal effect?  I feel like burping/belching could help but its something I've never been able to physically do. Im in my early 30s so hoping its not another thing... Any advice would be appreciated A
    • O sorry. Negative biopsy. But this was months ago but i have no energy. My teeth are rotting i feel sick all the time. And i was told by someone who has celiac that it can also be difficult to have a diagnosis cause you would have to eat 6 pieces of bread for 6 weeks in order to get a proper diagnosis. And i just know that something is up
