Fibromyalgia diet soy

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia diet soy


Avatar f tn Hello, I have learned, which has been confirmed by allergy testing, that I am "allergic" to soy. Although I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1992, I have discovered that I only have pain when I ingest food containing soy or use a cream with soy in it. I have tested this repeatedly in the last three years, eliminating cereals, packaged foods, processed foods, candy, etc. The only way to eliminate my pain is to avoid soy completely.
Avatar n tn I can't tolerate soy and I find in talking to other fibromyalgia suffers that is not uncommon. I was drinking soy protein drinks for a few weeks and ended up have to go through weeks of pretty invasive tests. My pancreatic duct was enlarged. It turned out they believe it was my diet at the time. My body was not processing the soy. I met another person in another forum on here, she had a similar experience. Turns out she was also consume high amounts of soy. So it's not for me.
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
1748829 tn?1338040641 hey had tooth removed today or technically had twisted gross broken root remove today and my Dr told me liquid diet for three days and i am trying to follow that to the letter because this is the worse tooth issue I have ever had to deal with and don't want it to get worse in anyway, so my question to you is what are some ideas for liquid diets that i could drink before my pills so there is something in my stomach so I am not any sicker then I have to be.
Avatar f tn Anyway, I recently decided to begin an elimination diet to rid my diet of allergens (gluten, soy, dairy, sugar, caffeine, unfiltered water etc. ) in hope that i can find a possible solution to this headache. ;) I am wondering if anyone else has found relief through this method? I eat mostly vegetarian, occasionally eating fish, but i consume a lot of soy and dairy products. I'm fairly active and would love to find a solution through diet and exercise.

Avatar n tn What types of things have you tried? We basically follow a GFCF diet at home due to fibromyalgia and ASDs in our family. We got a mill to make our own rice flour. We also use masa. Milk wise, we use rice milk and soy milk. We have come up with recipes for cookies, pancakes, spaghetti sauce, chili, banana bread, etc. We also do tacos with corn tortillas and sometimes have 'beanie tacos' (that my kids really like) where we put refried beans, onions, and sauce on the corn tortillas.
Avatar f tn It was from soy. In 1998 I decided to start eating soy as a replacement for protein. While my diet had very little protein as I was a vegetarian, I could now finally have the protein I always craved and I found it in soy frozen food products. I also developed a love for coffee to keep me going with all the issues I was going through at that time. So here I had my soy food to finally eat and coffee with cream and sugar to keep me feeling good.
Avatar f tn In the past 2 years I've gotten increasingly sick, with chronic fatigue symptoms, fibromyalgia, severe interstitial cystitis, IBS, Polycystic ovaries, and recurrent viral and bacterial infections. I've cut dairy and gluten out, and this has helped the fibromyalgia and fatigue significantly, but I still keep getting sick. Have seen GI, allergist/immunologist, urologist,ENT and alternative medicine.
Avatar n tn For protein we eat whole grains, potatoes, legumes, quinoa , and lots of fruits and veggies you can have some soy and soy milk for the calcium. But, it supposedly reverses arthritis, athroschlerosis, diabetes, and a variety of things. If you are interested in reading about it there are several doctors that have written about the same type of diet. But basically, the book the Starch Solution by John A.

724811 tn?1291434386 I found out about 5 years ago that I have Celiac (follow the gf diet, of course). I have Hashimoto thyroiditis, ebv, fibromialgia, depression, and asthma. I am so tired all the time, I can't get myself going and my house really needs to be cleaned. I'm literally lying in bed on my laptop all day today. I know I have many things to do, but I just can't seem to do it. Yesterday I went to the endo and he thought maybe I wasn't absorbing the thyroid meds because of the celiac.
Avatar m tn I now have allergic reactions to several foods such as all grains except rice, soy, chicken, spinach, walnuts, milk, seafood and a lot of other things. Also medications - especially antibiotics - gives me reactions, so does Benadryl and Zyrtec. The reactions are everywhere in the body, headache, serious sinus problems, boils in the face, skin rashes, dizziness, light headed, low back pain, anxiety and trouble urinating.
Avatar n tn I take enough because of fibromyalgia. Hopefully I can get some infomation on diet to help with estrogen level. Thank you, Janet This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/261416'>tamoxifin and tachycardia</a>.

Poor gut health also produces symptoms of chronic diarrhea, flatulence, depression and ADHD. Eating fermented foods seals the lining of the gut, restoring its proper function. What foods are fermented? Not all fermented foods taste like sauerkraut. Read about the variety of tasty foods that are actually good for you.
Avatar f tn I suggest you have your son get checked out by his MD and have blood work done to see if his thyroid is acting up or not. It is recommended to increase children's physical activities to loss weight. Have your child go and play outdoors, run, walk, and dance. Limit time in front of the TV or non-active-video games. There have been studies showing the longer the length of time a child sit in front of the TV, the greater the weight gain.
Avatar f tn I have met dozens of people in the last year who turned around all of their “undiagnosable” symptoms CFS, IBS, fibromyalgia, anxiety, etc but only changing their diet. I have a severe soy and milk allergy that affects my brain (dizziness, panic attacks, cloudy thinking), causes muscular pain and IBS. Found out after being hospitalized last year.
1132657 tn?1260557669 But in doing my own research about it and seeing another gasto doc the nurse asked one question the other gastro doc might have asked and never did and that was about my diet. At the time I was drinking soy protein shakes. Soy is very hard on some people and I already have issues with digestion. I stopped drinking the protein drinks, changed a lot of things about my diet and my stomach problems, started a mild exercise program and it all calmed down.
Avatar f tn I would like to have a good nutrition intake so that I can be as healthy as possible so that I can manage my Fibromyalgia. I have tested anemic and hypoglycemic in the past but I have been at good levels lately. I take Shaklee daily vitamins whenever I can afford it. I drink 2 cups a coffee a day which helps the fatigue but seems to increase my pain symptoms, muscles seem tighter. I seem to have a slight dye allergy, specifically to red and yellow drinks.
Avatar f tn A good milk substitute that isn't soy (soy is not health food!) Almond milk is a viable option, just make sure you read the list of ingredients to be sure there aren't any rice ingredients in it. Do research on the list of ingredients that you don't understand to make sure this is a good milk substitute. Don't overdo the milk substitute. Everything in moderation, because when you overdo any kind of food or drink, you can develop intolerances.
1356258 tn?1277667850 Even though my tests for celiac disease were negative, my gastroenterologist finally diagnosed me with celiac based on the vast improvement I made on a gluten and soy free diet. He does not put much faith in the celiac blood test and says that they are not a very accurate diagnostic tool. Most doctors don't realize how severe celiac disease can be when undiagnosed for a long time. I know from experience that it can cause many of the symptoms you listed.
1607251 tn?1304605741 an entirely strick diet of no gluten 2. a low glycemic-index diet similiar to what diabetic patients do in their nutrition intake To make it clear on potential participators, this would NOT be an alternative to what your doctors are treating you with. This is not an elimination of medications but just a simple choice to eat simply and avoid some things in addition to what your treatment plan is.
658828 tn?1225050195 I also have read about Fibromyalgia as well b/c these autoimmune diseases seem to occur together, but I just cant get myself to think that this is just a muscoskeletal pain problem especially since its mainly in the area where my kidneys are located. I have an appt with a GI dr next week so I am hoping i can get some answers. I had a Complete metabolic panel test done and all levels were normal that was in June. Could this one episode be the cause of a serious condition such as Pancreatitis?
Avatar f tn They do say to stay absolutely away from alfafa sprouts and since this wasn't part of my diet no problems. Some say soy can cause inflammation so I limit my intake but have not cut entirely out. Rooibos tea supposedly has anti-inflammatory abilities. Because of possible heart disease with RA it is advisable to eat a lower animal fat (reduce your red meat and stick to lean cuts, increase fish and chicken) diet that includes lots of vegetables and complex carbs.
Avatar f tn I see a Naturopath and I have my diet restricted because of my Celiac and have been Gluten, Dairy, Soy free for over 2 years and my sysmptoms still persist. I keep wondering if I have any other autoimmune diseases, cancers. I can hardly function. I sleep 2-3 times throughout the day as well as a full 8 hours at night and I still feel exhausted. Help!
Avatar f tn Stop taking steroids, specifically prednisone. I was misdiagnosed with RA and fibromyalgia in 2010 and suffered nearly 7 years with drugs I never needed. The first year on prednisone, I developed DVT in both legs. My tendons in wrists, thumbs and lower legs were destroyed from it and now my feet have gone flat and my ankles are falling in. I struggled with vertigo, several bouts of pneumonia and TB from compromised immune system.
Avatar n tn I am not sure where soy fits in this picture, but do know when I drank only soy milk I never had an attack. But, when I found an excellent source for tasty cow's milk, I went back to that. I now think that was a mistake and plan to go back to the soy but not depend on it as much as I used to. The more veggies and fruits you can eat really does make a difference, and I think it is because of the enzymes, or something like that at least.
