Please Read - No Celiacs Can Have Soy!

Recommended Posts

Yes, and by no means am I saying that my doctor is the all-knowing being who could never be wrong.

But don't you guys think that - in the event she is right - I would be quite negligent as a fellow celiac not to share information that could make you all feel better?

I think it's wise to share information when it is proven to be valid. That means lengthy studies on varied populations and all of that scientific jazz. People come up with theories about all sorts of diseases all the time and maybe they look at a few things and say "Eureka! I've found the answer." It may or may not be. You have to be skeptical and careful about what information you take as the truth because ALL doctors (well most anyway) are confused about celiac or at least they don't agree with one another.

Testing is unreliable and if there's anything ALL celiacs know it's that celiacs are not ALL alike. There is such a wide range of symptoms, or lack of symptoms, levels of sensitivity from being able to cheat with no consequences to getting deathly ill from glutened shampoo.

You just cannot make a sweeping statement like that and expect us to all say "Okay, well out with the soy then!" I would bet all the bun-less hamburgers I will ever eat in the future that this research isn't going to turn up to be what this PhD (not medical doctor) is telling people that it is. There is too much anecdotal evidence to the contrary, let alone scientific evidence.

I think your heart is in the right place and it's wonderful that you want to share but people just aren't going to get up in arms about this and they are going to question it especially when it's coming from someone who isn't even a medical doctor. You can get a PhD in all sorts of things but that doesn't make you a "doctor" who treats patients and practices medicine. A PhD student doesn't do residency and work in a hospital, etc. Plus what is her PhD in anyway?

And since so many doctors have misdiagnosed us over the years or been totally clueless about what to do once they do diagnose us, we're all going to be skeptical of doctors period.


Lots of doctors diagnosed me with lots of things including IBS, lactose intolerance, wheat intolerance, and quite a few of them threw up their hands in total confusion.

Had GI symptoms, allergy symptoms and unexplained illness my whole life.

Jan. 2010 Diagnosed celiac at the age of 40.

Ready to get well and get on with my life!

Well now I feel like a dork. I didn't realize this was such an old thread. I saw it at the top and replied.

Not to worry! This is one or our "Young and the Restless" threads...they never die. Hopefully, they just fade away. :blink::D

Might be time to close this one. B)

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!
