Egg, Soy, Casein, Corn And Gluten Allergies?

Recommended Posts

As many of you know, I am trying to figure out if I have Celiac or not. I just ate a bowl of Fruitty Pebbles and Soymilk (gluten-free). I am soooo nauseous it is crazy! I want to go to sleep but I can''t even get in bed and lay down. I guess my question is does anyone have any experience with egg, casein, gluten, soy ANDDDD corn allergies? If so, what do you eat? I think I have allergies to all of these. I had flourless chocolate cake with 6 eggs and a lot of dairy free, dark chocolate and I was so sick after, it was either the eggs, or soy from the chocolate. I also had "Corn THins" and couldn't see straight because of the headache and stomach ache, etc. ALso, after my cereal i literally look 6 months pregnant!! The bloating is so bad!! HELP?!!

I can have corn but not any of the other things you list. An example of what I eat: Morning: rice cakes with nut butter and sliced meat, or rice cakes with goat cheese (which I seem to handle ok), and two pieces of fruit

Lunch: almost always a huge salad with endive, carrots, iceberg, white cabbage, topped with olives and either tuna or salmon or ham, sprinkled with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and herbs

Dinner: Meat and veg stir fry

Snacks: Nuts, dried fruit, a rice cake with nut butter ad honey... but I don't snack a lot.

Maybe this could give you some ideas...

A couple of years ago my husband got a sensitivity test from Yorke and it stated that he was intolerant to gluten, wheat, corn, yeast, cow milk, egg yolk, soy bean, almond, cashew, lentils, hazelnut and chili pepper. Foods to rotate: Brazil nut and Garlic.

Now I have to admit he eats corn, yeast, cow milk, egg yolk as they are so hard to eliminate when you are already gluten-free and can't eat fruits, vegetables, spices, beans & nuts due to other celiac related digestion problems; also he cannot eat sorghum, flax, garbonzo - all beans, as for some reason these flours bother him too. But this is just him.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Kassandra, it sounds like you are intolerant to lectins, like me. In which case you probably shouldn't eat rice, either.

The lectin groups are: All grains (including rice and corn), all dairy, eggs, legumes (including soy and peanuts) and nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant).

Most people would not be intolerant to ALL of those lectins but only some groups. I appear to have a problem with all of them.

By the way, gluten is a lectin.

Here is a link where it is all explained, that really helped me: http://www.krispin.com/lectin.html


I am a German citizen, married to a Canadian 29 years, four daughters, one son, seven granddaughters and four grandsons, with one more grandchild on the way in July 2009.

Intolerant to all lectins (including gluten), nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant) and salicylates.

Asperger Syndrome, Tourette Syndrome, Addison's disease (adrenal insufficiency), hypothyroidism, fatigue syndrome, asthma

Eliminate the soy and see if you still have an egg issue. I have most of that and once you get used to it, it isn't bad at all. I use Enjoy Life chocolate chips. I am also intolerant to the calcium suppliment that is added to OJ and non-dairy milks. Most vanilla (that is gluten free) is derived from something I am intolerant too so that rules out many other things from EnjoyLife but not all...

Breakfast for me is eggs and homemade sausage (which if you can't have the eggs of course wouldn't work)

Lunch is leftovers from dinner which is usually meat and potatoes with some veggies.

Desert is fresh rasberries (sp?) when I treat myself.

I make chebe buns and make myself cashew butter and berry jelly sandwhiches. Sometimes I just smear that on rice crackers. For cold lunches, I make chicken salad with passover mayo that I can get once a year and stock up on. I make my own broth to use in my homemade soups.

I cannot tolerate bananas or strawberries.

Yup I have some of those. Sounds like "leaky-gut-caused-allergies/intolerances" and intestinal candida.

I believe nearly all long-time celiac disease sufferers have these.

The increased intestinal permeability (leaky-gut) allows partially digested food particles into the bloodstream, where they are seen as foreign invaders and as such are attacked by the immune system.

I eat fish (love my spectacular broiled salmon), chkn breast, some vegs, salads (w/out my former fav ingreds but loving avocado & toasted pine nuts), some nuts, almond butter etc

I can't eat any of those either. I just read about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and it seems to fit me. I was also thinking it was a lectin issue, but when I eliminated those, I still had mild GI symptoms. After reading about the SCD, I can eliminate all but the simple sugar foods.

So what I eat is home prepared meat, cooked vegetables, cooked or very ripe fruit, & olive oil/vinegar, salt, spices, tea, honey.

It's really limiting, but if the SCD is correct, then after 3 months, I can add other foods back in.

For breakfast, I have a pan fried thin pork chop with fruit

Lunch, grilled chicken or beef, fruit, and vegetable/salad.

Dinner, same as lunch.

My daughter is allergic to all of those things but corn in addition to some other things. She eats a lot of rice and rice pasta. Nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavor. Make sure you buy the dairy free kind. Some has whey in it. She uses rice milk. For breakfast she usually has some energy bars made of cashews, dates and coconut. A good meal or snack is hummus with rice chips/crackers and/or raw veggies. She eats vegetable soup, tomato soup, chili. Plain meats. Potatoes in all forms.

A favorite meal is a stuffed baked potato. Start with a large potato. Poke some holes in it with a fork then bake till tender. Let cool enough to handle. Cut it in two then scoop out the insides, leaving a shell of about 1/8". Mash the potato adding some rice milk, olive oil, salt, pepper and chopped green onions or chives, a bit of parsley and plenty of nutritional yeast. Stuff it back in the shells, then drizzle with a bit more olive oil and give it a good dusting of Sweet Hungarian Paprika. Bake long enough for the tops to brown and the potato to be heated through.

The corn allergy would be a tough one. Corn is in everything!

Yeah, very possible, not fun, but possible. I can't have the regular glutens, no corn, soy, rice, or nightshades. I think dairy is ok for me, not positive, but pretty sure.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
