For Those Of You That Are Soy Sensitive...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am self diagnosed (and don't really care to have the "official" diagnosis) and have been gluten free a little over 1 month. I am beginning to suspect that I have additional intollerances as well. I cut out dairy a few days ago because I noticed my stomach would hurt after my morning coffee (with half and half.) I am now suspecting soy as well after I ate some tofu last night because I was up at 2 am with a headache and a bad stomachh ache. Also last night I noticed my ankles were swollen - something that was resolved going gluten free.

So, if you react to soy are your reactions similar?

For me it depends on the type of soy I eat. Soy flour, soy milk or basically any straight form of soy (edamame, tofu, etc) will give me bad cramping like you are describing. Soybean oil or light soy cc gives me headaches. I also have swollen hands, swollen ankles and joint pain and fatigue when I eat soy on a regular basis. It may be that you are soy sensitive and it wouldn't hurt to try cutting it out as well. You can always try adding some back in again in a few months to test it.

UGH...I was really hoping that I wouldn't have to do an elimination diet but it seems that might be the only way. I'm afraid that my DH is being to think that I am just making up these extra food intollerances for attention since I am no longer sick all the time from gluten.

Why is it that all these additional food intollerances are so severe now that we have cut out the gluten? Is it because we just felt bad all the time we never noticed it? Are our systems MORE sentitive to it now that we have begun healing from gluten? I got glutened off of a gluten free menu the other day and I actually THREW UP before I even left the restaurant! I have NEVER thrown up from celiac disease before :(

i am trying my best to avoid soy because it aggravates Grave's antibodies.. BUT- its in freaking EVERYTHING- even my beloved gluten-free Chipotle :(

anyways... not sure of my reactions- i seem to react to different forms of soy... i used to eat tofu and gluten-free soy sauce with no reactions... and miso soup too... but some soy byproducts in salad dressings or prepared meals give me allergic reactions, and a hot nausea ... and then soy flour used in gluten-free baked goods has always given me mild crampy gas. its weird- MOST legumes give me semi painful gas... yet like i said before- tofu, and miso soup had never bothered me.

When we first give up gluten it is such a relief to our bodies that they put the antibody guards on leave and leave some sentinel enforcers behind just in case we forget ourselves. If these sentinel guards come in contact with gluten they come down on it very hard - your body says "Oh no, I thought I got rid of that stuff. Give it the chop" :D:lol:

Yes, the reaction can be much stronger than previously.

The additional intolerances start showing up for a couple of reasons. 1. the response to the gluten was so overwhelming to your body that it was too feeble to complain about the other things and if it did they were just little voices crying in the wilderness; 2. the gluten has given you what is called a leaky gut, which lets larger particles of food into the bloodstream than it should. These large particles are not recognized by the body as friend, so become foe and the body sets up an autoimmune response in an attempt to get rid of them. Anything you eat a lot of is a candidate to become an intolerance so try to keep you diet as varied as possible (within your food limitations, that is :D )

Mushroom you are amazing.

To the OP:

My symptoms are slight headache-

not the migraine I get with gluten.

And...swelling...my face, eyelids, ankles, feet and hands are visibly swollen if I eat any of the soy...

I'm still puzzling out reactions too, but so far I can tell these are definitely related to soy.

Sometimes D..but no stomache ache..weird.

Good luck and hope you feel better soon.

For me, I have vertigo,ringing in my ears ,brain fog and other neurological symptoms. I also have digestive issues, the hole in the gut feeling,cramping ect... The one that concerns me the most is blood in my stool. That only happens when I eat something with soy in it.

    • Ouch I am sorry . I know how painful bone,  joint, muscle pain can last weeks for me . Hopefully you'll be able to clear it quickly if otherwise you have been healthy this season. As others suggested some TLC , vitamins, mineral to assist may help. I find accupuncture helpful too or massage. As for a gluten-free pizza I can no longer have them due to additional intolerances to milk. I in past days found sabatassos gluten free pizza carried at my local Costco pretty yummy if you can find it.
    • Maybe it was not the chili.  Maybe you are sick with the flu?  Sometimes, we jump to the conclusion that celiac disease is the cause of our current symptoms.  I know I have done this.   Hormel is NOT considered good, but it is gluten free and safe.  I give it to my kid on top of gluten-free pasta or corn chips in her thermos.   Add plenty of cheese and it is pretty good.  Though I admit, I used to think the burritos and strips I purchased at the beach shack as a kid were SO good!  😆 Even bad cooks can make a simple chili.  Follow any recipe, but sub out the spices for Carroll Shelby’s Chili mix which is even certified gluten-free.   My recipe is 2 or 3 pounds of cooked ground beef, 32 oz can of beans (I usually make my own beans), a can of diced tomatoes, and Hatch’s green chili’s.  I suppose you could add some cocoa to change it up.  Do not hold me to this recipe regarding the ratios of ingredients as I do not follow one as my batch size changes, etc.  I cut back on the spices when I see my family sweat!  😆    
    • This is really a general post about alkalinity and being in the news these days. Alkalinity is totally trendy, but I encourage people to educate themselves about this and not rely on trends. I don’t mean to suggest that I know everything there is to know about this, but, for example this site (http://www.foodenzymeinstitute.com/articles/digestion-in-the-stomach.aspx?list=bydate) states: [Certain enzymes are] only active within the pH range of 3.0 to 5.0 and require the acid to maintain that pH. Pepsin is very specific in its action and is simply incapable of digesting food enzymes, which are very large molecules and are more than just protein. This sites (https://www.livestrong.com/article/459954-the-acid-base-balance-in-the-digestive-system/) states Antacids increase the pH in the stomach, which might make the enzymes in the stomach less effective. I think the focus on alkalinity and acidity in our foods currently en vogue is a huge distraction and a big waste of time. To me, it represents the two steps backwards in the notion of progress. I’ll end with Dr Andrew Weil — https://www.drweil.com/health-wellness/balanced-living/healthy-living/why-alkaline-water/ “Don’t waste your money. Alkaline water is being aggressively marketed for its purported health benefits. It is touted as the solution for everything from helping the body better absorb nutrients to reducing the risk of high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and heart disease, as well as boosting energy, helping you lose weight and slowing the aging process. It is also said to be “more hydrating” than any other type of water. Alkaline water is supposed to achieve all this by correcting the body’s pH, its acid-base balance. In fact, the human body needs absolutely no help in keeping its pH constant. “ /rant
    • After my hiatus hernia was diagnosed they advised me to eat small meals spread out across the day, maybe that may help?
    • Ah I've googled it, as you guessed I was thinking of chilli con carne, this is something different!  Sorry I can't be of help.                      ps, no offence, am sure it's lovely but I did find this hilarious: https://deadspin.com/the-great-american-menu-foods-of-the-states-ranked-an-1349137024
