Help Please, Soy Allergy And Now Reacting To Foods I Eat Daily

23 May 2013 - 04:46 PM

I was reading here to see if I could find some info, I know there is lots here about intolerances. I was diagnosed with soy and dairy allergies in January. I was feeling pretty great after eliminating them from my diet. going soy, dairy and gluten free wasn't hard, just had to redo my eating life.


fast forward to now, almost 6 months later, and I feel that when I eat things like apples I am reacting how I used to feel when I had soy or dairy, which was a mild upset stomach. I saw some info that soy is used to wax the apples and other fruits and veggies. if this is true, I am really at a loss as all I eat are fresh fruits and veggies with protein.



Brown Rice Flour Vs Rice

18 May 2013 - 05:33 AM

I have a question I hope someone can help me with. after my diagnosis I had food allergy testing and was tested for many things, rice was one of them, which showed no allergic reaction. (dairy and soy showed allergic).  I have eaten rice a few times with no issues.


now I see I am reacting to brown rice flour, it took me a while to figure this one out, but I am absolutely sure of this.


I haven't eaten rice lately just out of fear.


I am just wondering if anyone has any insight for me on this reaction to brown rice flour. this is annoying as it is many gluten-free products like bread, crackers, etc.


thanks in advance.



6 Months Into My Gluten Free Life

15 May 2013 - 04:45 AM

I wanted to share that there is light at the end of the tunnel for anyone still suffering. hang in there. I had different symptoms ranging from nausea, extreme heartburn and horrible dizziness with brain fog.


now, gluten, dairy and soy free 6 months later, I am living my life without being afraid to make plans for fear of being too sick to go anywhere.


I also noticed another thing I had cleared up, and didn't ever associate this with my issues, my eyes are a lot clearer. there had been days when after watching tv for a while, or being at the computer for a while, my eyes got all out of focus and I couldn't drive. I just noticed that doesn't happen anymore, so happy I got to the bottom of all this.


and thanks to everyone here, and all the great info I never would have known if it weren't for this forum :)


Le Cellier Steakhouse At Epcot In Florida

20 April 2013 - 06:07 AM

I just got back from a day at Epcot and am so happy to share my experience. we were meeting my brother there for the day and they made reservations at Le Cellier in Canada. they didn't mention Celiac or allergies so I just brought my own food like I always do. I had no idea.


I am in love with this place. the staff is more knowledgeable than any place I  had ever been to. when I told her no gluten, no dairy or soy she just said give me an idea of what you'd like and I will take care of the rest. she even got me amazing gluten-free rolls in my own bowl with a wood stick alerting allergy. a different person brought all my food than the others at my table. I had a fabulous lobster egg and avocado salad, and filet mignon with roasted potato for entree. the best meal I have had in a long time. 


just wanted to share.


Testing During Passover

27 March 2013 - 04:36 AM

My daughter is due for her routine checkup, she is actually 25 today. I just realized she keeps Passover, which means she isn't eating gluten this week. the holiday is over on Monday. when do you think it would be safe to have her blood test done.


she wants to include the celiac testing since everything happened with me, and she has some other conditions that may be suspicious.
