Developed Dairy Intolerance?

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.
