Took Swig Of Edensoy With Wheat Barley Extract...

5 posts in this topic

How scared should I be? I cannot BELIEVE that a soy milk had wheat and barley extract in it!!! Damn Storm (sandy), I grabbed only soymilk that was left on the shelf as an emergency measure. Opened it, had one mouthful and instinctively knew something was up...that was a taste I had not had for probably over 2 yrs....barley malt. Looked at the ingreds and sure enough. You learn something new every day, apparently. Had no idea that a soymilk could be glutened. Shoot. How bad will this be? I have not had a taste of gluten, not even a grain, in over a year. Was never one to get super sick (it ate away at me slowly), but still.

I'd say prepare for a storm :( Always check, lesson learned.

Everyone reacts differently. I feel a reaction within an hour, but it can take up to three days. Time will tell.

Drink lots of water and let us know how you fare. There is no way to prevent every accident so don't be too hard on yourself. We've all been there.

Try not to panic. I know that might sound easier said than done. Everyone's reactions are different, not everyone reacts badly to it. I agree with previous comment, drink plenty of water, it helps to flush toxins out of the body quicker. I have found some gluten and wheat free Slippery Elm capsules which I take to sooth my gut and find it works quite well. I realise that with the storm it may not possible for you to get out at the moment, but it might be worth considering for future use. Take care.

Thank god, nothing major! I have been a bit foggy and tired...but that comes and goes so often (from being undiagnosed until 46!) that I can't tell if it's out of the ordinary or not. So...good lesson. It's not always going to be a major disaster. And read labels, even when it's soy milk.

    • I had not heard that. What I had heard is that folic acid supplementation can mask B12 deficiency. Feenejya suggested getting tested for H Pylori, not a bad idea. What you're going through sounds awful, I'm so sorry you're going through this. Please stay in touch, and do take care because chronic diarrhea can present some complications of its own, as you know. Try to replenish fluids and electrolytes.

    • mnburis, I'm concerned about your symptoms, especially the diarrhea being so frequent.  I experienced pellagra after prolonged diarrhea.   The symptoms are diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.  Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (B 3).  With your vitamin D and B 12 already diagnosed as low, you're very likely to be low in all the other vitamins and minerals as well.  The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  The B vitamins all work together.  All should be supplemented if one is low.  Large doses of B 12 by itself can cause folate deficiency anemia if you're low in folate (B 9) already.  Ask your doctor about other vitamin deficiencies.  The easy ones to test for are D and B12.  Tell your doctor how severe your diarrhea is.  Ask about pellagra.  Here's some more information. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html https://www.dermnetnz.org/topics/pellagra/ I really hope this helps.  
    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further.
