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.

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
