What can I do to manage my baby's intolerance for soy milk protein?

Read formula labels: You have to be very careful when choosing a formula as many "regular" formulas contain soy. Always discuss it with your doctor. Also if your baby is eating solids, avoid "hidden" sources of soy, such as miso and "hydrolized vegetable protein".

I am allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut. Could I have a protein intolerance?

I am allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut. Could I have a protein intolerance?

What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome. This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology".

Could 60 grams of soy protein a day interfere with Synthroid absorption? TSH in Dec. 1.25. TSH now 3.55 - on Medifast diet - lots of HYPER symptoms

Could 60 grams of soy protein a day interfere with Synthroid absorption? TSH in Dec. 1.25. TSH now 3.55 - on Medifast diet - lots of HYPER symptoms

Thyroid: Synthroid absorption is key. It is to be taken by itself on an empty stomach for an hour. Your TSH going up does not coincide with hyperthyroidism. TSH is the hormone that is "telling your body/thyroid gland to produce or not produce thyroxine or thyroid hormone. When the TSH is high it means production is lower than the brain wants (your brain is "screaming" for more t4), meaning hypo still.

Bf 3 mo old with cow milk protein allergy. Dairy free x4 wk, minimal soy intake. Symptoms improved but not resolved. Normal weight gain. What do I do next?

Continue avoid milk: It takes time, so a continued milk an dairy elimination diet is in order. It would be important to read labels to make sure there is no "hidden" dairy in other foods. Also, there may be another food allergy besides milk. An allergist can assist in the search for the cause.

What effect does soy protein isolate have on gout?

What effect does soy protein isolate have on gout?

Less purines!: Soy protein does not contain the dna content of meat, hence less purines, which are converted into uric acid, the cause of gouty arthritis. Soy protein deoes not mirror the Amino Acid content of animal protein, so comparatively, whey protein from milk is better. The protein effiency index of soy is less than whey. Nutritional support may be necessary, if avoiding meat-b12, zinc, iron.

I heard soy-based protein is bad for males. Is this true?

Processed soy: There is good evidence that fermented organic soy is part of a healthy lifestyle for men & women -think miso, tempah, etc... However, the highly processed soy found in textured vegetable protein and soy milk is not healthy. Most commercial non-organic soy is processed using highly toxic hexane. I recmmend avoiding all non-organic processed soy.
