  1. Thank you for your support!

  2. I agree....It's very overwhelming!
  3. Thanks, Yes...I see now that I really need to check my resources. I do have to say though, that I removed "some" soy from my daily intake and have become "regular" I do not feel the discomfort of constipation. So I may be one of those Celiac's that can not have soy ;/ It's become a process of elimination to find whats best for me.
  4. I didn't think about it, but Yes....I will try eating a soy bean on its own to see my reaction. Thanks for the info, I've never used a Forum or Blog before, so reading everyone's post can become very overwhelming. Some people seem as though they know what they're talking about, but then you get a response from someone else saying"No..thats not right".
  5. This is all new to me, I will get the right information from my Nutritionist when I see her in 2 weeks. I came to this site to get information, the information that I just posted was something that I read from someone on this site as well. Everyone has their own opinion and everyone has very different symptoms. Some have problems with Lactose and some with Soy, but we are all fighting the same illness "Celiac". I will be more than happy to share my findings after meeting with my Celiac Nutritionist, it took some time to find the right person b/c not all Nutritionist or Dietitians understand Celiac.
  6. I got this information online, however, I will be meeting with a Celiac Nutritionist in 2 weeks, I should get better information then and I'll share it with everyone. I have noticed that since removing soy from my diet, I haven't had any stomach issues (but still have joint and inflammation). Yesterday I had gluten-free protein bar and started feeling sick to my stomach almost immediately, when I read the label it said it contained soy. It contains prolamine which your liver will think is gluten because it's extremely similar. You may have heard you can't have CASEIN (a protein in cow's milk) and that is for the same reason - there is prolamine in it and that is probably because the cows are fed soy. Manufactuers will soon be required to remove "gluten free" from the label if the product contains soy! Please, please, from a celiac, take me seriously and remove soy from your diet. Soy LECITHIN is ok, that's just an emulsifier.
  7. I saw on a website that Celiac's should not have SOY! I've been still sick since finding out that I was Celiac and living gluten-free, nothings changed, however since finding out about soy and removing from my diet i have been feeling a little better. I still have joint pain and inflammation, however my stomach feels better. I used to drink, Green Tea with lemon and honey and when I scanned the bar code (an app for my iPhone called shopwell) it came up that it has soy , so now I drink just plain ole Green Tea. I am also upset because I am a huge fan of Nutella and rice cakes....Nutella has SOY! I'll be seeing a Celiac Certified Nutritionist in 2 weeks, I'll be more than happy to share with everyone what she say.
  8. I just recently found out that I can't have soy!!!! everything I ate had soy , I'll be going to see a nutritionist soon, god willing I'll get some good advice and I would be able to live a happy gluten-free life
  9. are you anemic? I was very Anemic and had to have 3 sessions of IV infusions. It help me to get back to my normal life, however 1 month later I was diagnosed with Celiac.
  10. This is all new to me and no matter how much I try to not eating anything thats not gluten-free, I still feel pain and discomfort. I also read that a Celiac's, should not eat soy! I just recently stopped eating that. I do not eat processed gluten-free food, I have everything grilled (meats and veggies), I eat all plant based food, so I'm hoping that my problem was with soy, I have been soy free for 1 week now. I will be meeting with a certified Celiac Nutritionist in 2 weeks, I think this will help me a lot.
  11. Thanks, I'll check out the link. My normal weight it 145-148, since all this inflammation I am weighing 153. It might not be much of a difference for some, but now I can't get into my cloths and I wake up with so much pain, it's so upsetting. (not the weight so much, but inflammation). I get pain on jaw, neck, shoulder, wrist and fingers.
  12. I was diagnosed in January of this year with Celiac, it's really bad, my lining is completely flat. I recently had routine blood work to see where are my blood levels now compared to my first diagnose. Needless to say, it's the same (nothings changed). I have changed my diet to a Gluten Free diet (or so I thought), however I've been feeling really bloated and a lot of inflammation in my body, even though I eat gluten free ( can someone tell me why?) Also, I just read that someone with Celiac should NOT eat soy! could this be the reason? some of the things that I have bought that are gluten-free contains soy. Please help!!!
  13. Hi Melissa, does the cappuccino contain soy? or does any of your flavored coffee contains soy? Please let me know.
