In Topic: How Long Did It Take Your Bloating To Go Away?

Man, if I'd have tried to eat sprouted seeds back when I was recovering I would've been stuck to the toliet like that woman in the news :lol:
If you'd like to avoid the soy in Ensure (although I've never had any problems with minimal amouts of isolated soy protein) try Boost or Boost Plus.
Have you tried baby food?The Baby food rice cereal with formula in it is great.

keratosis pilaris was one of my many, many incorrect rash diagnoses, along with lichen planus and shingles.

Maybe the phone guy was trying to uh, "digest" this... :huh:


Lecithin is a food ingredient that is derived from plant sources, including soy. Lecithin is isolated following hydration of solvent-extracted soy, sunflower, or corn oil. Lecithin is affirmed as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) with no limitation other than current good manufacturing practice. 21 CFR 184.1400.(7) Common food applications of lecithin include use as an emulsifier, a stabilizer, a dispersing aid, and an incidental additive, such as a release agent for baked goods. Regardless of its food application, lecithin is generally used in small amounts, with the result that it is, according to one lecithin manufacturer, present in finished foods at levels rarely exceeding 1% by weight of the final food product.

During manufacture of lecithin derived from soy, most, but not all, of the soy protein is removed. Soy allergens, to the extent they are present in lecithin, would be found in the protein fraction of the ingredient. Accurately measuring lecithin's protein content presents challenges to current analytical methodology due to the ingredient's oily matrix and low levels of protein. The GRAS affirmation regulation specifies that the ingredient meet the specifications of the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC). The FCC monograph stipulates that food grade lecithin contain not more than 0.3% hexane-insoluble matter. Because the protein fraction of lecithin would reside in such insoluble material, this specification would limit the amount of protein in food grade lecithin to 0.3% or 300 mg/ 100 g lecithin. At least one major U.S. producer has stated that its manufacturing standard for lecithin derived from soy is set at 0.05% hexane-insoluble material or 50 mg/100g lecithin.

. She was diagnosed with Pancreatic Insufficiency last year after a fecal elastase test was very abnormal. Well, last week her latest elastase was normal!!! I'm like what????

Diarrhea can cause a falsely low fecal elastase-the stool should be formed for the test to be really accurate. I hope you find a GI you can work with, I went through eight before I found one with a brain. :(
Here is hoping you have some answers soon!
