I usually drink water with everything, but of course that does not work with cereal. So I use soy dream, which specifically says that is gluten free. I do not get the same reactions as if I ingested gluten, but the soy drink tends to produce a knid of laxative effect. Are a lot of celiacs having problems with soy? I also have probs with corn. What are replacements can be used for Soy dream that have been easier to digested. I have been currently taking DgL, the licorice root, which I will say has taken the edge of a little.

Hi Richard,

Well, sometimes when people have one allergy the other sometimes just some along with them. In this case it is probably just that. I as well use water for everything and I too have an allergy to soy beverages. The reason you are reacting is possibly due to 2 reasons:

1. You're allergic to soy.

2. The equipment used is possible used with materials used with some forms of grains.

I cant remember where I read it but "Rice Dream" I was told to not even drink because of that exact reason. Maybe it is the same with the soy? I have pretty much just given up soy all together and stick to water. You may want to research a little on certain brands of rice milk and check with the companies to see if they are gluten-free and also process it on "clean" machines. meaniung not used as the same machine as somehting that can hurt you.

As for the corn allergy, it is in my case just one of those additional foods on the forbidden list. Do a trial and error. See what forms if all or just some bother you. Maybe start a food diary to see what happens when and yadda yadda. its helped me a ton!!!

Good luck!

Soy is on my watch list.

I haven't isolated it yet but most of the time I eat anything with soy I get a similar reaction as you.

I use Pacific Almond Milk and haven't had any issues.It is gluten-free.

It's very good and a excellent source of calcium.

What is DgL?

I have bad reactions to a lot of soy products but most that say gluten free and contain soy are okay for me. I try to avoid it all together. Maybe, you should try the same. Good luck!

I was going to suggest the same thing.... the almond milk or maybe even goat's milk. Those are the alternatives I can think of. I know that the rice milk specifically says that it is made from a barley enzyme, but I don't think that is the same with soy. I don't know....

Sorry

Steve, DGL is a licorice root that helps support stomach lining and intestinal contractions. I am not actually sure how to spell out the whole word..deglycyrihizinate..I think. You chew two tablets 20 minutes before eating. I has deifinitely helped with the bloating.

Richard,

Thanks for the info. I've actually been drinking Yogi Egyptian Licorice Tea( recommended by dietitian) and it does help.

Hi Heather,

Many licorice candy products contain wheat, but natural licorice root is gluten-free. You can get gluten-free licorice candy and the DGL supplements are good for aiding digestion, but certainly don't taste much like licorice! Read every label if you do try to get some licorice. Running Rabbit brand makes black cherry, raspberry and black licorice flavored candies. They are all gluten-free!

Richard, I am allergic to soy (I get very itchy!) and I am intolerant to dairy, so I have almond milk on my cereal. I use Blue Diamond Almond Breeze. It does have a small amount of soy lecithin in it, but not enough to bother me. Other than that, you could try Mocha Mix (original, NOT fat free). It is dairy free and soy free. I water it down. About 3 parts water to 1 part mocha mix. It makes a good milk replacement for baking as well as for cereal.

God bless,

Mariann

So far, I've had excellent luck with the Silk brand of soy milk. For me, milk allergy goes along with the gluten/wheat thing, so I have to be extra careful not to get any dairy of any kind. You might try Silk.

If it keeps up, though, see an allergist. They can do a skin test for food allergies and this helped me tremendously! I am not allergic to wheat, but am intolerant of wheat/gluten.

    • 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.
