i have been

off the gluten for over 8 weeks.

but my symptoms haven't gotten better

so i took the forum advice and went off dairy

3 weeks ago -

(aside from one pc of dark choc a day - could that hurt?)

i have replaced my

daily yogurt and milk with

soy versions or almond milk.

but my nausea and fatigue

persist and my tummy feels

gurgly and gassy

when i eat the yogurt or drink

even a 1/2 cup of soy milk!

but it also feels weird when i drink even

a 1/2 cup of almond milk.


so i guess i have to give up soy too??

AND the almond milk?

and does that mean ALL SOY?

or are there certain things

that are especially bad?

or, could i keep eating it, since its not

DAMAGING, like gluten...

just makes me gurgle.

and with dairy...

does that mean ALL DAIRY?

like even butter and chocolate?

is there a test i could take?

trying to get to FEELING BETTER!

: )

grr... <_<

you can test threw entrolab for casein, soy eggs and yeast. I had to give up soy and casein to feel better, but my tounge tingles when i eat soy, so i think that is an allergy.

Yes, if you are eliminating dairy, it means ALL dairy. You can get dark chocolate that has no dairy. You can also get "milk" chocolate made with rice milk. I just bought a bar the other day made by Terra Nostra that was 100% gluten-free and CF. I was really impressed with the taste...the kids loved it too!

Regarding soy, you may want to try eliminating it as well. And, again, ALL soy. Almond Breeze has some soy in it BTW.

Good luck! Hope you're able to sort it all out soon. :)

I never had to give up dairy, but have had to give up nearly everything else. After gluten, soy was the next to go. I hads been gluten-free for 2 yrs when I had to give up dairy, up until then, I seemed to be doing ok. I had wanted to lose some weight and decided to try the Eat Right For Your Blood Type Diet. I am a Type A blood tpye and he tells Type A's to stay away from dairy, so I grudgingly gave up dairy and switched to soy. I honestly liked 8th Continent Vanilla SoyMilk, and I was using soy flour, tofu--lots of products. Then, it hit me, constipation, terrible rashes--the knowledge that soy was a big problem was slow for me to realize, but when it finally hit me, I gladly went back to my dairy and things went back to normal. Everytime I got some soy, more symptoms--so, no soy in my life now. After that, I learned to watch for symptoms. Corn later became a problem, then nightshades--tomatoes, almost instantly make me ill, within 1/2 hour I get diarrhea from them and I have tried them every way I can because I love them. Mushrooms I have not been able to eat for years. Potatoes are a thing of my past, except for potato chips, strange, but I can still eat them. No cruciferous veggies. All grains are gone now and all but glutens make me break out in a bright red, raw rash on my tummy, most constipate me. When my tummy has a little rash, I know I have gotten something, somewhere, sometimes I never know what it was from. Usually I figure it probably is from the citric acid in a product. I do the best I can, that's all I can do and I hope nothing else is taken away from me.

Sometimes folks who have problems with soy can handle soy oil. Many can handle soy lecithin. But there are those who can't handle soy in any form. Other than by trial I don't know how you would tell.

I miss cookie dough:

I saw your name and had just made chocolate chip cookies yesterday, anyway the recipe was out of Analise Roberts gluten-free Baking Classics, and in the book she talked about making cookie dough for ice cream, so when I saw your name it made me smile and I thought I should tell you that you can still have cookie dough!

I use the same recipes that I used to make just substitute the flour with Authentic Foods Multi-Blend flour and so far it has worked the best...

I just had my kid retested for celiac disease and we are waiting for the results.  Her doctor does not hesitate to test since I have a firm diagnosis.  I can also say that my PCP and GI  never hesitate to check for other AI issues either.  They know that you can develop more than one autoimmune disorder.  Better to catch it early before damage!   If you get an endoscopy, be sure to do a gluten challenge 2 to 4 weeks prior or your result will be negative!
