Adding Back Soy

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

I was dx'ed with celiac 1 year ago and gave up milk and soy in addition to gluten. Soy gave me a similar reaction as gluten would, however on a much smaller scale. I still have moderate amounts of soy (soy lection etc.) but I am now ready to try adding soy back into my diet.

What is the best way to "test" my body to see how it reacts to soy? I vaguely remember someone saying you need to consume 4 times the amount you ordinarily would in one sitting (as in 4 cups of soy milk) but that seems extreme.

Thank you in advance for any ideas/suggestions!

-Dana

According to my doctor, whether you consume a small amount or a large amount, if your body doesn't like it it will respond. You have to be very aware of what's normal for you and keep notes. It could take up to 3 days to have a reaction. One poster has said it took 10 for him.

The following is a paper given to me from my doctor after I went through ELISA testing.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.
