Soy & Dairy Questions

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've posted a couple of times before. Briefly, symptoms started in November. Went gluten-free a week later and wasn't prepared to eat gluten until I could have an endoscopy, which in Australia, in the public system, can take up to 2 years.

 

My problems were alleviated with a gluten-free diet, but I also discovered I can't eat any dairy, not even hard cheese, or yoghurt that seemed so soothing in the beginning of gluten-free.

 

I finally got the genetic testing and of the three results, all were positive. I also have Type 1 diabetes, so celiac often goes hand-in-hand. Pretty much a no brainer about what I have, but no 'official' diagnosis. I may pursue it in the future, if I want to damage my gut again, just for a diagnosis. Both my family doctor and my endocrinologist say it's obvious what it is and to stay gluten free.

 

Now I'm wondering about soy. Seems I can tolerate some soy... but maybe not. I'm aware that soy and corn can be a problem. 

 

It seems I can't eat my usual mayo that is made with soya bean oil. I'm not exactly sure if it's the eggs or the oil. I can eat eggs where the yellow isn't very cooked, but not hard-boiled eggs. In the mayo, surely the eggs are raw? I use S&W Mayo made in the USA. Does anyone know if there's some kind of cooking process to make this mayo? 

 

I mostly have mayo with canned tuna (packed in springwater). Surely it couldn't be the tuna, could it?

 

I can eat a couple of soy-based crackers ok, but I've wondered when I've eaten more, if they were responsible for ensuing gastro problems.

 

Yesterday afternoon, I tried a soy latte (I'm missing my decaf lattes). I was ok all yesterday (and almost jumped for joy because it was tolerable to drink), but 24 hours later, I'm having gastro symptoms. I know these will last 24-48 hours, so I'm stuck with it.

 

I'd gone 16 days straight (without being glutened or dairy'd) feeling fantastic with zero gastro issues! I'm only a couple of months into this, so I'm still coming across stuff I could happily eat before, but not now.  

 

My question is... does anyone know the difference in soy content between a couple of crackers, soya bean oil and about 3/4 glass of soy milk? What's in soy that causes the problem?

 

Not that I really want to eat soy, but the occasional soy latte would be nice, but not if I can't tolerate it. 

 

With the non-gluten "intolerances", do they do the same kind of gut damage that gluten does? If not, what kind of damage do they do, if any? 

 

Last question... why does a dairy intolerance rear its head when you first go gluten-free, when dairy was never a problem before? I'd have dairy every day before, but definitely not gluten every day. 

 

Sorry about all the questions in one post. I've been saving them up!

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
