Does anyone know if it's possible for a casein intolerance to cause elevated levels of antibodies in a celiac patient? I'm interested because I've been on a very strict gluten free diet for several years, but my antibodies are extremely high, and I'm trying to pin down the culprit.

I don't think that casein can cause elevated levels of tTG. I believe that lactose intolerance is often a result of high tTG because  the tTG damages the villi where lactase is made. I know that casein intolerance is thought to damage villi too, but I'm not sure how...

 

I'm not medically trained or well versed in this area though. I'm interested in what others have to say too.  :)

lolz, nicole, i just said the same thing on her other post :)   

 

maybe you are getting cc'd by something that you added in with the casein?  if you're sick from eating it, maybe you're casein/lactose intolerant.  or your gut is just not healed enough to handle it?

If you are intolerant to anything in milk it is lactose. It is more likely for you to be allergic to casein as it is a protein. Orit could be whey as it is also a protein. My daughter had an anaphylactic milk allergy and the allergist told us this. It's something to do with the protein chain that causes an allergic reaction with milk. Lactose intolerance causes stomach issues, caesin a dn whey allergy can cause stomach skin and respiratory issues that can be mild.

Caesin is a protein just like gluten so it is possible your body is having a similar reaction. I'd cut out all dairy and ask for the milk skin prick test you don't need to be drinking milk for it. That way you can find out if it is a milk allergy
