Topics I've Started

Anyone Else Also Soy/yeast Intolerant Too?

06 December 2005 - 05:50 PM

Hi guys,

I just did Enterolab's soy/egg/yeast panel, because I was getting a bad reaction to soy and also something in my gluten-free bread was causing mischief. Very please to report I can still eat eggs! :D However, I did have elevated IgA antobodies to both soy and yeast.

I would advise anyone who is gluten and casein intolerant to test for these other 3 - my symptoms to them were nothing like my gluten/casein symptoms and are much more minor, so I wouldn't be surprised if for some they are non-existent, even though antibodies could be running rampant. I asked the lab if my avoidance of soy/yeast should be taken as seriously as my avoidance of gluten/casein, and was assured "It is Dr. Fine's professional opinion that any food sensitivity that is severe enough can cause the same intestinal damage that gluten and milk can." I have no doubt about this. If my body is producing antibodies that are able to cause disruption I can measure, I'm sure there is other stuff going on that I can't measure.

Anyway, I'm not *too* distraught because I just baked my first loaf of Breads From Anna's yeast free bread (well, gluten, dairy, corn, soy, rice and yeast free), and it was wonderful! I honestly couldn't tell the difference between it and the yeast version I baked the other day. Also no need to wait around for it to rise, just mix everything up, stick in the oven for 70 mins and you're done. It rose up (god knows how!) and had a lovely thick, crispy crust and was soft in the middle.

I was so proud I even took a photo! :lol:

Anyway, does anyone know of any sugar-free chewing gum that does not contain soy? Most of them seem to, and I do like my gum.

Taking Leaky Gut Test

26 November 2005 - 07:57 PM

I got the test from my ND today, to take at home tomorrow. I'm worried about it as the mixture I have to drink is lactulose/mannitol - lactulose being a milk sugar, and me being casein intolerant. I'm dreading it causing a casein reaction... :( but still, I need to take the test. My ND says she usually doesn't get people tested and diagnoses leaky gut based on symptoms (she's pretty sure it's what I have), but I figure if there's a simple test that will 100% confirm it, it's worth doing.

Has anyone who's casein intolerant taken the test? :huh:

Have Been Poisoning Myself For 3 Months!

22 November 2005 - 07:29 PM

Urgh... this sucks so bad... I just figured out today that Claritin, which I have been taking daily since May, contains dairy. I became casein intolerant in early September (official DX in Nov, but symptoms from Aug). So this whole time I've been dosing myself up with casein daily. Arghh!!! :angry: The weird thing is, I haven't had 'caseined' symptoms (not the way I did when I had a tiny tiny mouthful of something cooked in butter - sick for 8 days straight), but I've clearly been doing myself damage nonetheless. Maybe this explains all these new 'niggles' (extra allergies, stomach ache after meals...) I feel like such a fool. Of course I made sure it was gluten-free, but by the time I went CF I was in such a Claritin every morning routine I just didn't think to check.

Have switched to Allegra. Onwards and upwards... ;)

My GI presscribed me with Miralax. I'm not going to fill the script until I know it's gluten-free/CF, but haven't come up with anything when I've searched online. Does anyone know?


Is Gluten Killing My Brain Cells?

16 November 2005 - 06:57 PM

Every time I'm glutened (or caseined in my case too), for the following week I get brain fog and neurological symptoms (sometimes even see bugs, flashing lights, etc. :blink:), am very light and sound sensitive, am uncomfortable making eye contact, making conversations is a big struggle and when I do try to, words often come out wrong as if I'm drunk or verbally dyslexic.

This normally resolves when the glutening has worn off, but the last couple of times, I have noticed this lasting longer than other symptoms. I got caseined last Monday, felt sick until this Monday but have felt great since yesterday *except* I have been finding it difficult to think of the right word sometimes. I know that happens to us all every now and then, but for me not like this. The word I was looking for was "occur", ie: "it doesn't even occur to them" and I swear I could not think of that word! I knew what I wanted to say but I could not find the word. It was really scary. I was not tired and feeling great in every other way.

So here's my question - anyone else get this long-term, and am I being paranoid by thinking that every time I get glutened it is killing off some brain cells??! :unsure:
