Can Soy Milk Cause Diarrhea In Toddlers
For the last three weeks my son has had loose stools every morning. He drinks soy milk. What should I do?
Loose stools: As long as he is not having diarrhea and dehydration, loose stools are not an issue. But you can give him more potatoes, rice, and carotts to make his stools more formed. Yougurt also may help the intestinal flora and affect, in a good way the stools. We do not want him to have hard stools as they are not health.
Loose stools is a symptom in which a person's stool (poop) does not hold its shape after it goes into the toilet. Instead of remaining a shaped piece of poop, the poop spreads out in the toilet bowl water. Very loose stool is called diarrhea.

How much soy is too much? What problem can it cause? I usually have 1 glass of soy milk, 1 bag (1 pound) of edamame, & 1 box of tofu. Is it too much?
Ask Grandmom: What does your grandmom eat? You will most likely do well with the foods that your ancestors eat [asians may not handle dairy and wheat so well. Anglos may not handle soy so well]. Most problems: powders & pills, not food. Your goal: keep your isoflavones less than 100 millgrams a day. [see comment for more info].See 2 more doctor answers
No: There is no scientific evidence that dietary soy food (milk, tofu, ect...) is linked to the development of breast cancer in women or men. And it does not cause lumps in men's breasts. If a man has a lump in his breast, he should immediately go see his doctor for an assessment. Breast cancer does develop in men, albeit much less common than in women.
Does soy milk cause man breasts? I noticed my chest looking 'breasty' when I substituted soy for dairy milk.
Possibly: Unless drank in ginormous amounts soy does contains estrogens which could theoretically cause breast development but I strongly doubt it
Acne: Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. These factors can trigger or aggravate an existing case of acne, hormones, medications, and a diet with a lot of dairy and carbohydrate-rich foods. You can also prevent new acne breakouts with self-care measures by washing your skin with a gentle cleanser and avoiding touching or picking acne.
Calorie economics: Soy milk does not cause weight gain anymore than other food (including regular milk). Weight gain occurs when the total calorie intake exceeds the calories consumed by the body in activities, leading to storing away of the calories. In general, calories from all food sources not used are turned to fat and stored for later use. Portion control is important. Avoid drinking too much soy milk.
Not likely: Soy has phytoestrogens that can b converted to estrogen. Too muh estrogen in a male can cause breast tenderness and growth. Unlikely to cause cancer. Still, in order to get enough soy in your diet to cause such symptomatic changes you would have to drink solely soy milk in large amounts. Women who want to get estrogen replacement by taking soy must add powder form concentrate to get enough.
Soy and gynecomastia: Soy does have estrogen like properties but it would be unlikely that consumption in moderation would produce gynecomastia. Gynecomastia in men occurs when testosterone is out of balance with estrogen, and causes of this include drugs/medications, alcohol, endocrine disorders, tumors, obesity, et al. Stopping soy products and monitoring for breast reduction can help determine if soy is causing itSee 1 more doctor answer

No it does not: No soy does not cause spotting. You should consult your Gynecologist and get checked
Tooth Decay: Too much emphasis is placed on sugar being the cause of tooth decay. All sources of carbohydrates cause tooth decay! The stickiness and concentration of sugars determines how cariogenic the food may be. The true cause of decay specially in toddlers is the lack of daily dental home care by parents. It is not like a stinky dipper screaming to be change. You as parent must make it a priority.See 2 more doctor answers
Why does regular milk cause my extremities to tingle? I am fine with almond and soy milk. No allergies.
Two considerations: Milk Alkali Syndrome (hypercalcemia) and milk allergy. Parasthesias are uncommon but alkalosis from hyperventilation does cause parasthesias. Usually we think of milk Alkali syndrome as causing constipation, bone pain, psychiatric symptoms and kidney stones.See 3 more doctor answers
