Anyone allergic to soy? I use to be able to eat a lot of it, but now it seems to make me kinda bloaty and crampy; and poop a lot of mushy yellowish, grainy stool. (Sorry about the description). Anyone have a similar reaction?

The first night I had my first diarrhea attack in August I ate a baked potato with tofu and borcolli on it. Tofu being soy bean curd. I've never been the same since but I never thought it might be the tofu until now. Who knows. I've never had it again since though. Still battling the diarrhea that started that night.

When I first discovered my milk allergies I started drinking soy milk and eating tofu,soy ice cream, etc. I started getting bad headaches in the AM after my cereal with soy milk. When I cut out the soy stuff my headaches mostly went away, and my PMS got better. So, you never know, it could be the soy.

Good luck!

Hey Moldie.
I do beleive that Soy is an issue with some of the IBSer's. I to have found Soy bothers me. It took awhile to figure it out but my chiro asked me what I ate when I had an attack 3 years ago. I said a homemade stirfry. She asked me if I used Soy. I said yes. She said another person who suffers from IBS who she knew could not eat soy. I do beleive it is a problem.

I also tried Soy supplements and ha d a problem with going to the bathroom all day. I thought I was just stressed but now I think I might not be able to take it either. I'm s;ightly lactose intolerant - can eat yogurt, cheese and some othe products. Anyone else have trouble with soy?

Soy is in over 60% of processed foods you eat. Breads, ice cream and all chocolate candies contain soy. Breakfast susages, prepared mexican foods, most vegitable oils and shortenings and almost all cereals contain soy. Reactions can vary from your throat swelling and hives (severe) to stomach upset, bloating cramping and diarrhea.The best site I have found for good information is at There is a soy challenged web site that gives great info. There has been a dramatic increase in soy allergies. It has yet to be proven, but europe has banned most U.S. products since a latge number contained genetically modified (GM)foods, such as soy.
