Developed Dairy Intolerance?
0

7 posts in this topic

I'm still pretty new to this, I haven't been gluten free for even a month yet. But I'm starting to wonder if I'm forming other intolerances like so many other people do. 

 

I'm thinking it's dairy because I feel off only after that. I usually have 1/4 cup - 1/2 cup of greek yogurt for a snack or dessert (with honey, vanilla, and dried blueberries) but somewhat soonish afterwards (maybe TMI but necessary), I sometimes get burps that are kind of acidic and sometimes taste like vomit. I haven't actually thrown up yet, but it seems to be the next step in the progression. 

 

I tried a week without dairy back in 2010 when I finally started trying to figure out my gut issues, but it didn't seem to help. Of course, I was still eating gluten so I don't know if anything besides gluten free would have made a difference. I also haven't had any dairy issues before going gluten free. I know I react to highly processed corn (ie. corn pasta and high levels of corn starch) and caffeine with colon spasms, and get nauseous when I eat really rich or high in fat foods.  

 

Thanks in advance for any advice/thoughts!

If it's only been a few weeks, your body is still trying to heal, however, it could be a dairy intolerance (and it may only be temporary).  But when you mentioned getting nauseous when eating rich or fatty foods that sounds like gallbladder issues (non-functioning).  Has this been ruled out?

I think it's pretty normal to get acid formation / reflux when eating dairy and sugar combined, it's normal for me anyway. Try plain greek yoghurt and see how that is, it's probably better

That sounds to me like GERD.  You might mention this to your gastroengerologist.  You might also have another problem like delayed digestion.  I have a dairy intolerance.  For me the first sign is big D.  If I ignore this and keep on eating it, I will eventually start going through Kleenex like mad and eventually get an ear or sinus infection.

I developed a dairy intolerance pretty quickly when I went gluten-free.  Lasted a few months I think until I stabled out some.  I eventually added back dairy although I still limit myself.

Do you get that same feeling from just a glass of milk? Have a large glass of milk on an empty stomach one morning, see what happens. If that's not an issue, it could be something you're adding to the yogurt or the culture in the yogurt. If the glass of milk DOES affect you, you could then try a glass of milk or a glass taking a lactose enzyme or just a glass of lactose-free milk, and see what happens. If the lactose-free milk doesn't bother you, then it's a lactose problem. If that still bothers you, then it's the fat or more likely one of the many proteins in milk that's bothering you.

It may not be that you are forming new intolerances, but that your gut is still raw and those foods are tough to digest.

Did you try digestive enzymes?

 

Many celiacs have a secondary dairy intolerance as a result of villous atrophy. Lactase is produced in the tips of the villi, so when

your gut lining heals and the vill grow back, you should have no problem with dairy anymore. (notice I said "should" because not every celiac

gets this digestion of lactose back). It took me almost a year before I could have dairy again (but this was my experience and you may rebound

a lot faster)

 

I know you say you did not have dairy issues before this, but if you were ill, it's hard to determine what was causing what exactly.

 

Just take it out for a few months.. and try it again?  Just a suggestion! Hang in there.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
