Here are conditions which may be helped by soy products:
- Soy protein taken orally may reduce protein in the urine, and improve the function of kidneys with a chronic condition.
- Soy protein may also improve blood sugar levels in folk who already have diabetes.
- Eating soy protein or using soy fibre products has been reported to reduce LDL (bad cholesterol) by a small margin. However, soy supplements do not seem to help at all.
- Some babies have lactose intolerance issues. Feeding a baby soy-based formula can help to reduce lactose discomfort problems.
