Soy Out.....dairy Back In?

4 posts in this topic

I gave up dairy in July because I thought it was the cause of my eczema problems, and my skin cleared up right away. That didn't last, however, and after just a couple of weeks the eczema started to creep back and eventually became just as bad as it was.

After a while, I realized that soy was the problem. So I cut soy and, again, my skin cleared right up. This time it has lasted.

I mentioned all of this to my doctor (since I've been diagnosed, she has been very interested in learning more about food intolerances and has been attending all kinds of seminars on the subject). She told me that in one of the seminars she recently attended the nutritionist mentioned that dairy and soy can have some kind of cross reaction, so she said that maybe it wasn't dairy after all. That sounded pretty good to me, so last night I tested dairy and have had no ill effects so far.

Has anyone found that after giving up soy they were able to eat dairy again? Or is that just wishful thinking?

From what I've read an allergy to one can lead to an allergy to the other.....at least in infants. Don't know about adults though. If your eczema comes back you have your answer. I personally wouldn't eat it again (but I know I'm allergic, mildly). If you do decide to eat it again, try and keep it minimal. That is sooooooo hard to do for me anyway. I love cheese and butter. :)

That's really interesting about the possible cross reaction between dairy and soy. I used to just have soy, but I added cheese months ago. But the past three weeks I have been having gi troubles and I can't figure out why. So today I am stopping the soy consumption, but I will continue with limited dairy. Hopefully you and I can get some answers. I'm so glad you posted this.

So far no ill effects from the dairy consumption. That was the night before last. (In case anyone is curious)

    • Gaerty,  thank you for sharing this with me! You want to know something crazy? The night before you sent this I was googling "vitamin deficiencies linked to splinter hemorrhages" and an article came up about vitamin C deficiency. I can't remember the last time I took vitamin C or drank orange juice or consumed anything that has vitamin C on a regular basis. It's crazy that you responded to this post when you did. My splinter hemorrhage is razor thin and looks like it could be shrinking but it's hard to tell. Also it's not growing out of the nail bed. It stated more in the middle of my right thumb nail. I don't take a multivitamin mainly because I can't find one that doesn't trigger my anxiety. Trying to find a good one that doesn't have energy boosters in it like green tea and extra B vitamins (all my B vitamin levels are great). I haven't been tested for low C vitamin levels but I might have to now. I was tested for some of the base ones that most celiacs have issues with, folate, magnesium, B's, E's, and a couple others and all of them came back good with the exception of my vitamin D3 which in November 2016 was 16 and we tested it again in February, it moved up to 26. Still low but moving up. My liver numbers in October 2016 were bad but by February 2017 they were perfect. I had skin rashes, most of those have cleared up over the past 5 to 6 months, by about 85%, since I was diagnosed. This splinter hemorrhage came up about 7 to 8 weeks ago. Like I said it appears to be growing out but I'm still going to get it looked at.  Let me know what your doc says about the vitamin C levels. Also what multivitamin do you take?  Ps: I bought some clementines yesterday.  Thanks for responding!  Spencer 
    • Maybe try a rice based milk, I find the coconut flavoured ones really good with cereal.  
    • I guess they've never felt the political pressure the mainstream cereal producers were under in the age of rickets and pellagra? Plus there's not such a competitive market and its a cost manufacturers would sooner do without if they can, although if Udi's or Genius did start perhaps they'd get more business. I think I'll start eating flax seed again, that was good for fibre I think. I take a vitamin supplement also of course. 
    • Good for you! One suggestion, if you run into another reaction like your Endo, try and ask a question which puts the burden of proof on them, ie: 'Given the positive blood test, on what clinical basis are you excluding celiac?' At least it forces them to be more precise and perhaps exposes any flaws in their reasoning. Although if you reach that stage with a doctor it's probably worth looking for another... If I were a cynic I'd say your Endo had already metaphorically left the building when they were analysing your tests.Your primary seems more on the ball though Best of luck! If and when you go gluten free come back here and there will be plenty of support for you.
    • Great Image JMG.   Thanks for the feedback. I think I feel that the decision to push for further tests, and not shrug it off is the direction I want to go. And I think I may try the diet post-endoscopy, and see if I respond (particularly if my thyroid responds to the diet).  Thank you All!
