Reaction to vegetable oils only?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Over the past year I've been dealing with weird episodes of nausea/chills/bowel evacuation/insomnia that last for several hours, always at night. I started Paleo/GAPS to mitigate it while figuring out what it was. I was diagnosed w/ gallstones via ultrasound and, at last check, had reduced them from 12mm to 4mm taking an herbal compound prescribed by my ND. I was episode free for almost a year until having a reaction about three months ago.

I can trace almost every episode to restaurant food. My last rogue reaction was after eating at a restaurant I've successfully eaten at numerous times - but with a different salad dressing that, upon research, I determined contains "salad oil" (vs. their house dressing, which is olive oil only). It's unlikely that we're looking at foodborne illness - this happened 20 times between Feb and June of last year.

I eat a LOT of fat - butter, coconut oil, meat fat (even duck!) - with no problems. Is it possible, having potential liver sludge/gallbladder issues, to ONLY react adversely to the bad oils? Would anyone have a physiological explanation for this?

vegetable oils are not always 100% soy, they are usually a mix of soy and corn....I'm also allergic to soy but also corn products, and they are in literally everything....@Jessica, any corn issues?

Vegetable oil is usually 100% soybean oil. You might be okay with fermented soy, tofu and the likes, but not unfermented soy products. I have a sever soy allergy, and my body reacts differently to different soy products.

Nah, I'm OK w/ soy (the occasional soy sauce, tofu) - but I have had problems w/ anything at Chipotle that has soybean oil on it (pretty much everything cooked except carnitas)

I can't provide you with any scientific evidence or concrete answer to your question, but I have read anecdotal evidence that people who had their gallbladder removed do just fine on healthy saturated animal fats and PUFA-heavy fats (maybe lard would apply here too) are the only fats that cause them digestive trouble.

I wouldn't suspect the lipids themselves that are problematic, but perhaps what's dissolved in the lipids. Are you sensitive to soy? Isoflavones might be an issue. You're probably get a dose of soy when you use random "vegetable" oil.
