Am I A Mess?

Hi everyone. I've been gluten free for a little over a week and being super careful. In the past, I've used soy milk from time to time as I can't have dairy. I usually opt for almond milk. Anyway, yesterday afternoon I went to an Asian restraurant with a friend and had a veggie steam bowl with rice and some gluten free sauce on the side. The inside of my mouth got sort of raw after - not sure if it was the spice or the soy and I still feel it today. I had a soy latte later - no syrup or anything - and ended up with really bad wind that has stayed yet today. Is it possible that I'm sensitive to soy? Or could it just be part of the healing? I plan on staying away from it for a bit but I wanted to see what you thought.

Everyone has been so helpful since I joined. Thank you so much :)

I dunno but I've read nothing but bad stuff about soy, I would stay away from it, but I guess it's hard if you want to eat out at chinese, thai and the like. Basically I read there's estrogen and other bad stuff in soy, and that the soy protein is really sticky in your gut.

A lot of celiacs also have problems with soy. I am one of those. Bloating, gas. I quit soy & it went away.

Yes, soy is a problem also for many celiacs, me included. If you are looking for a soy sauce substitute, Whole Foods carries a product called Cocnut Secrets/Cocnut Aminos, which is very similar in flavor.

Thanks Mushroom - I will check that out. I have always tried to limit soy, even before all this happened but have some in "treats" since most places don't use almond milk. I might be noticing symptoms more now that I am feeling a bit better. I think I'll have to watch it more carefully now.

That happened to me! I had never gone out of my way to eat soy, but didn't check for it in things like salad dressings, etc. After gluten free when my body no longer had to fight that fight it turned its attention to soy with a vengeance, and I developed this huge bright red rash which tooke me quite a while to figure out. Turns out that a lot of gluten free foods have soy subbed in them - it does limit your choice of baked goods/flours if you avoid soy :unsure:

I had never removed Soy until my full elimination diet and boy what a reaction I got when I trialed a cup of soybeans! Here is my note from my food log 9/23/11:

"Major bloat - 8 months prego within 20 minutes of eating one cup soybeans - next day none had digested."

Hope that wasn't TMI -- hope no one is eating while reading this post ;)
