So my daughter has been gluten-free/CF since late Nov. She just turned 4yrs old, has been dx celiac disease by regular Ped and "possible celiac" by GI(already on gluten-free and chose not to challenge for tests but she does have a great pos response to diet and DQ2 gene)
So right when we switch diet over she was doing beautifully. Now we are starting to see some symptoms return. Could have been gluten once or twice by eating out, but other than that we have been VERY careful. I am now afraid she might be having reaction to soy. She is complaining of tummy hurting and constipation and VERY large poops are back.
I am worried this will leave very little to eat. The envirokidz cereal and animal crackers and almond crackers she loves and I see soybean in them. Do I need to remove those or just soy milks and soy cheeses? The almond milk has soy lecticin. She likes rice milk which is great but I need some cereal and snack ideas that are free of soy too??? Any help please..........I just want my little girl to feel good again!
Bayleigh is allergic/intolerant to soy. Her allergist gave me cards from FAAN that i keep in my purse to let me know which ingredients contain her allergens. The soy one says that studies have shown that most people allergic to soy can safely consume soy oil and soy lecithin. We had already been COMPLETELY soy free for a month when i reintro'd soy oil and soy lecithin. No reactions. HTH!
