Dairy, Soy, Egg, and Gluten Intolerance – Bollocks

So a few days ago, I got the results back from my Food Sensitivity test.  It turns out my body is sensitive to soy, dairy, eggs, and gluten.  That kind of sucks, because those are all four of the categories they test – and I’m intolerant to them all.  Such is life, eh?

My theory is that everyone is allergic/sensitive to some foods that they don’t know about.  For instance – I just thought it was normal to become toot-city after having a pint of ice cream.  I’m sure there are many people who think the same thing.  My guess is that about 80% of the population has a food sensitivity that they’re not aware of, but they just keep on living like everyone else.

That’s not to say that I want to keep on living, eating everything that looks good for the rest of my life.  No.  I want to be healthy, and I want to respect my body.  But that doesn’t mean that life’s going to be daisies and butterflies, not being able to stop by Wendy’s on the way home.

Anyhow, starting two days ago, Jessica and I are both adhering to a strict soy-free, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free diet.  It will be easy as long as we’re home, and my guess is that we’ll find creative ways to make it work when we travel.  (We absolutely love to travel, and our next travel date is coming up soon.)

Jessica and I will both be sharing our experiences, in hopes of helping other people who choose to follow these crazy dietary guidelines.  We know that group is a small one, but I’m all about helping the niches.  Speaking of which, where mah nitches at?

  1. oh, Casey.  It’s a wide and wonderful world.  You two will figure it out.  Do so before I get there so I can be the recipient of all your knowledge.

    nitch #1 checking in!

  2. Oh, did you know that humans are the only mammals in the animal kingdom who drink the milk of another mammal?  gross, right?

  3. I just  got my test results back on Monday and I  have the same intolerances as you. I also have the  2 genes (1 celiac, 1 non-celiac). Did you do the fecal malabsorption test? I did and my numbers are really high.  Just wondering if you had done that test.  I’m leaving for a trip in a couple of days and am just going to stick with the gluten free diet I’ve  been on for the last 5 weeks.  I can’t cut all the other things out when I’m traveling.  I’d love to hear about any food suggestions that you may have to help me start this  new diet. Thanks!

    1. I believe the test I did was the fecal malabsorption… I sent in a fecal sample, so I’m pretty sure that’s it! My numbers were between 10-14 for all test. Soy came in the highest at 14, and I’m not surprised, as foods with soy lecithin usually give me cramps and other loveliness.

      Yeah, we’re going on a trip soon, and it will be interesting to see how we deal with eating only food our bodies can digest. I’ll report back as soon as we return. I’m guessing it’s difficult, but not impossible. 🙂

  4. Nitch #2 here! Casey, I like how you said, “I know it sounds a little bit ridiculous, but we’re gonna try it.” That is exactly how I feel! I haven’t done this fecal malabsorption test but I was told by another doctor that I’m gluten, egg, and dairy sensitive.  Man, I really hope I can figure this one out! haha. It sure is rough trying to live this way!
