No Gluten/soy/dairy - Borderline Corn

6 posts in this topic

Greetings all.

Slightly frustrated; strike that - really frustrated. I'm gluten/soy and casein intolerant -- and feel like i'm pushing the envelope with corn.

Recently I've been looking the other way if something has a little soy in it -- not a good idea.

There are so many questions I have for my fellow intolerance-ites. But let me start with one -- do you know of any calcium supplements w/o gluten/soy/milk?

Calcium is my big worry right now.

Calcium Citrate plus Magnesium & Vitamin D - the Vitamin Shoppe brand. They have stores (not sure what part of the country you are in) or you can order online at vitaminshoppe.com. Per the label "No yeast, corn wheat, sugar, salt, soy, starch, dairy, citrus, fish, perservatives, artificial colors or flavors added". The other ingredients are gelatin, water and magnesium strearate.

I am also gluten, dairy (casein), soy, yeast, almond, hazelnut intolerant - plus I try to avoid corn and most other grains. I take 2 capsules 3 times a day to supplement the calcium I get through my diet. I use Vance's Darifree (it is a powder you mix with water) in my baking and on my cereal - it is fortified with calcium as well.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.

P.S. I've felt your frustration - but I've also discovered a whole world of tastes now that I have no choice but to eat my fruits and veggies in my diet. And all the hassle well worth it - I've felt SO much better since I got the foods that I was intolerant out of my diet. Can't believe how crappy I used to feel on a daily basis.

Me too - I'm intolerant of all grains (including rice), dairy, soy, yeast, beans, nuts, most veggies (except squash and carrots), most fruit (except bananas, avocado and non-acidic canned fruit). With time I have come to find things I really enjoy (carmelized squash - yummy). I take citracal for calcium.

I use the CVS non-name brand calcium + D withouth any problems. Almost all meds have corn, I just try to keep them to a minumum and have been OK most of the time.

Once you get all this figured out, it gets so much better. I finally figured out the calcium suppliment that is added to all non-dairy milk and OJ was making me sick. I can drink Vance's and I fould a real OJ without the calcium, $6+ for a half gallon though.

I completely avoid soy and it is in a lot of lotions and soaps...just watch for them. I gave up puffs plus due to soy issues.

Hey, I discovered I can eat apples (bananas are out).

Thank you all for the help!

Recently I have eaten something with soy or milk bc i have no energy and am completely lethargic - in the way that only soy or milk (and gluten) make me feel. Kind of depressed about it.

I really appreciate your feedback though.

I've been there, too. It's hard to give up so many foods. Gluten is hard enough, but when you add soy, corn, egg, milk.... I mean, what's left!!!???

That's how one feels, anyway.

But, in reality, there's a lot left. It's just not convenient anymore. It does take time to get adjusted to a new way of eating, and there's a certain amount of getting over the loss and being depressed. But, given some time to get used to it all, the emotional downs get fewer and aren't quite as depressing.

I've been five months on this journey and I still feel sorry for myself now and then. But I will never go back to eating the things that make me sick. I may yearn for them, but I won't put them in my mouth.

I'm always encouraged by those on this board who have been at this longer than I have and they seem to have it much more "together" than I do... so that gives me hope. I'm looking forward to my one-year-mark of being allergen-free and knowing that I'll be so much better then.

    • Lol!!!  Well what the heck. I'm not entirely sure how the message boards figure out the algorithm sometimes.  however, the Advice was totally informative and I appreciate it!   I am a bit nervous about taking iron so I was thinking I would take a safe dose maybe every other day or so for a little while  and ask my doctor To rerun the panel.  a friend of mine is a PA and she told me thE amount I can safely take.  I just hope my doc will be receptive to Re-running it because he told me the labs were within normal range Because the cutoff for ferritin was 13 and mine was 20.  I have no idea why they ran it a year-and-a-half ago because I didn't ask and I wasn't feeling crummy but during the first gluten challenge they did an iron panel and that's when it was in the 70s.  so I figure adding a bit more iron to my Already decent diet isn't going to hurt too much.   I did ask my primary care if it would be typical for somebody with a completely normal hemoglobin and red blood cell count to go anemic with an 18 hours of fasting.  it was mild anemia wasn't severe obviously. I had a procedure done while I was in the hospital and you can watch my red blood cell count and hemoglobin drop while I was fasting.  because they seem to Draw a CBC Like every 5 minutes in the hospital.   I was told after having a colonoscopy that Crohn's was ruled out.  Of course I was told a lot of things!   I admire how active you are.  I would love to be able to get up to a half marathon. I gave up exercising for 6 months last year to see if anything would help but it didn't so I just got back into it probably sometime in February. There are days when I really don't feel well and I'm not able to but there are days where I feel pretty good.
    • Don't pay any attention to that reply. By the way I am so sorry you are suffering so much. I have no answers for you at all but hopefully someone will! When is the next time you see your doctor?
    • Matt,  Your post has literally changed my attitude over my morning coffee today In a matter of minutes.  You have done a wonderful job summing up the experience of not only myself, and you as well, but my guess is probably a lot of people who come to this board.   I know from having some email conversations with researchers that even those in the gluten Community do not see eye-to-eye on all of this. So we certainly do have a long way to go.  As for the three months you're absolutely right, as I had already tried a strict diet for 2 or 3 months and still had a lot of symptoms. I think the doctor just wants to meet after 3 months to see if there's any Improvement, the test. But I'll give it a good 6 to 12 as you suggest.  There is that lingering fear that nothing will get better and I'll continue to go undiagnosed with something sinister.  it is hard not to think that way in my case. however, again, your post is giving me some hope. And even if that hope is not realistic at the very least it's a distraction for a little while which I need.  And hey, it may just be the answer!  I am often on the fence about whether or not I should be bitching about my doctors.  in reality, two of the things in life I would never want to be would be a doctor or a landlord.  people really do look to doctors as if they are God.  a friend of mine is a physician and told me that it's quite frustrating for doctors when they can't figure out what's wrong with the patient and they get burnt out.  so I have a lot of respect for the Physicians who keep trying to find what's wrong and do so while being polite and courteous to the patient even though they may inside be feeling frustrated. I have absolutely no respect for the ones who  fail to notice that there are recalls out on their models of the God complex.
    • I'm currently searching for a brand of rice that is safe for even the most sensitive. I saw posts on here from around 2009 (I believe) and was just curious what everyone ate without issues lately?
