Jefferson Adams posted an article in Additional Celiac Disease ConcernsCeliac.com 12/17/2018 - A 39-year-old woman with possible celiac disease was left brain dead after a dangerous internet “soy sauce colon cleanse” caused critically high levels of salt in her blood, which led to organ failure and death. The medical YouTube channel Chubbyemu, says that the woman, identified only by the initials, CG, arrived at the emergency room with a rapidly deteriorating mental status. Earlier that day, CG had performed a “soy sauce colon cleanse,” a dangerous internet fad in which people drink an entire liter of soy sauce in two hours. CG had been unwell for weeks before the incident. She had begun a diet made up exclusively of white bread and canned fish six months prior, and had lost 11kg, nearly 25 pounds, in the three weeks leading up to the soy sauce incident. Additionally, CG had been recently diagnosed with untreatable paranoid schizophrenia. She suffered from a psychosis that caused her to believe the government had poisoned her. Somewhere online, she read that the soy sauce colon “cleanse” would purge the toxins form her body. There are indications that CG may have suffered from celiac disease. Soon after drinking the highly salt-laden soy sauce her heart began to beat rapidly, according to a person identified only as Bernard, who claims to be a U.S.-based medical doctor, and who runs the popular Chubbyemu channel, which features videos on medical issues like kidney disease and cancer. After resisting all attempts to get her to drink water, CG began to stumble around and and mumble unintelligibly until she collapsed. She was rushed to a hospital and while en route went into cardiac arrest, before being resuscitated. Eventually, though, CG died as a result of acute hypernatremia— extremely high levels of salt in the blood. Bernard believes the woman had undiagnosed celiac disease, which manifested as psychosis and delusional disorder. He adds that a microscopic examination of her cells revealed “marked villous blunting and atrophy”, a common sign of celiac disease. Bernard argued she developed gluten sensitivity, became delusional and was misdiagnosed, and later falling victim to internet misinformation. If that is true, then the story is a sad one, indeed. In any case, the dangers of drinking large amounts of soy sauce or any other salty substance can hardly be overstated. Be very careful and always seek out the advice of a doctor before beginning any type of “cleanse” or “purge” meant to rid the body of “toxins.” See the video on the YouTube Channel Chubbyemu.

CeliacDaniel posted a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsSo, the NIH has put out a research paper on the involvement of Liver in Celiac Disease, you can see it here https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3941070/ those with Celiac could be subject to “celiac hepatitis”, one reassuring finding with the NIH is that liver architecture is usually abnormal in celiac hepatitis, but generally the changes are mild and/or nonspecific. As far as I know I have a sensativity to gluten and soy, meaning I cannot have soy or gluten (which is the protein found in wheat). But sometimes I like to eat out and if I am not careful I can get a case of gluten or wheat or soy attack, heart rate spikes, so does blood pressure and I get loose stools, and even constipation, usually lidocaine will settle my tummy. However, there is I believe some truth to avoiding soy. I have been myself avoiding soy, but I believe that protecting your liver (the filter in your body is vital). So this lady near where I live grows tangerine's, and she gave me one. I did some research on tangerines and found a whole host of benefits to them. But, more so, the peel, which can be used to combat cancer, cholesterol, blood sugar, good liver detox, and is wonderful for indigestion as it has antioxidents. However, I'm sure there is other research to indicate that there could be a side effect of too much consumption of tangerines. I have decided myself to start drinking tangerine tea, I took the tangerine that I ate and let the peel air dry, then I sliced up the tangerine and put in a coffee filter, and wrapped it in hemp string and made a tea out of it. I have a blood test coming up in a month, so we will see if there is any benefit concerning the liver with tangerine tea.
I was looking at package of California rolls (rice rolls). The label listed allergens and did not include wheat. I checked the ingredients anyway and saw soy sauce (water, soy bean salt, modified soy starch). I'm confused. I didn't buy it because it listed soy sauce and I wasn't sure. Any thoughts or experience?
