Soy Products - Thyroid Issues And Bloating/gass

Recommended Posts

I had the marker for possible celiac and three years ago - quit all gluten. I had such bad leaky gut that I'd been losing about a pound and a half a year over the last 27 years which nobody could explain. Since being gluten free I've regained some of my normal weight. But also in that time I've become really dairy intolerant; especially to any boiled dairy, as in cappuccino or homemade buttermilk which give me insane bouts of gas, so no dairy. I have been doing well until about two months ago. I've noted that when I eat sushi with (gluten free) soy sauce - I always wake up with a headache the next morning. And I work in Chinatown - so at least once a week I send out for tofu and broccoli. Bring gluten free really cleared up my old constipation problems for a few years  but over the last two months my constipation has come back in a big way, so I am experimenting with cutting out soy from my diet too; especially after reading the following:

 

Naturally occurring components found in soybeans, such as saponins, soyatoxin, phytates, protease inhibitors, oxalates and goitrogens, are called “antinutrients” because they basically block absorption of minerals and inhibit enzyme production needed for digestion. That’s one reason why they can cause stomach pain and bloating in some people. Goitrogens, in particular, interfere with iodine metabolism and, as a result, inhibit thyroid function.

This was for me, dotting the line on eliminating soy as I have suffered over the years with some terrible bouts of fatigue and doctors were always doing all the fancy thyroid tests - which were negative, but always left me wondering.

 

I'd love any feedback on this from you all.

Cheers,

Keshav

It would not hurt to test your soy theory. I do well on organic soy-milk. No issues for me and I have been using it for over 20 years. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis, but eliminating soy never made a difference to my thyroid or my intestinal tract.

I would also not eat out for a while. Maybe you are getting cross contaminated....new employees, food handling, etc.
