When Can I Eat Dairy/lactose/casein
0

9 posts in this topic

Since being diagnosed in February, I've been limiting my dairy/lactose....I am not lactose intolerent, so I have not been strictly adhering to a 100% lactose-free diet :) . Rather, I've tried to limit my lactose intake. For example, earlier in the diet, I had a big bowl of straberry icecream (made by Haagen Dazs, so I know it was gluten-free)...and I got sick that night. Therefore, I started eating a soy icecream, which tastes okay. I don't avoid all dairy, but avoid large quantities of dairy whenever I can. I don't dare to eat a whole bowl of icecream to find out if I'm okay with dairy now -- I still have symptoms...in case that is a sign of whether or not dairy is okay -- I know all Celiacs are different, but how long did you or would you recommend staying off dairy/lactose? Thanks.

If you're not caseine sensitive, you might try using 'lactaid' supplements when you consume dairy and/or lactaid milk instead of regular milk. I learned I was lactose intolerant about 10 years ago and have used "lactaid" sucessfully every since. ;) I sure wish someone would have suggested gluten intolerance back then. :o 'Sorry I couldn't answer your original question about how long to avoid lactose ... I just started avoiding gluten 9 weeks ago. :huh:

celiac3270,

I have been gluten-free since Nov.,03 and lactose -free for 5 months.

Since I relly started to notice a difference in my physical problems, ie,

have lost 10lbs and am almost totally pain free, I thought I would

try dairy again, so I had some Yoplait yogurt yesterday and began experiencing

"brain fog", which is enough to say..no way, not again. I haven't been

tested so I can't tell what part of dairy is bothering me. Perhaps I will

later on down the line, I haven't tried the Lactaid because i'm feeling so

well that I don't want any more challenges. I found that I can live without

milk, I use soy or goat's milk and can eat small amts of hard cheese, mostly

Cheddar. Hope this helps and I hope you are feeling better. :D

Good to know....I've been lactose-limited for almost 5 months, as well....I haven't avoided dairy altogether, but, like I said in my post, avoided large quantities.....thank you for sharing your experiences with it...I guess I'll be avoiding it longer than I initially expected to....thanks again.

As for my symptoms.....still there. I had another episode of cramping and vomiting.....ten times less severe, but still there....as long as they're less harsh, though, I can deal with this for now.

celiac3270:

My son (who is 10) just saw his GI yesterday and we asked the very same question. He was DX the same time as you, but has additional immune-system problems. Anyhow, his doc still wants him off dairy (we were soooo bummed). It isn't just an issue of healing; premature exposure to dairy can -- sometimes -- set off an actual allergy to milk (casein or lactose) that you didn't previously have. Or that's my understanding of what she said. A summer without ice cream. Ick! :) We're going to buy stock in Philly Swirl !

Yikes! Thank you for the warnings.....is it bad for me to be consuming any dairy? Like I said, I eliminated bulk amounts of obvious dairy...like creamcheese. Is it bad to have some dairy in my diet?

If you're casein intolerant, or allergic, then yes, any dairy would be a bad idea. If you're just lactose intolerant, then probably not, even if you don't use lactaid. (It varies by person.) It depends on the root cause... (I'm having trouble figuring out dairy too, but haven't worked real hard at it... eliminating all casein will be tough for me! ;-) )

After being 6 months diary free, my lactalbumine went negative, my caseine IgA dropped half down and caseine IgG remained almost the same as before. So, perhaps one year diary free and my antibodies will be ok. Just to give you an idea. I'll have another bloodwork next week, so I'll see more then.

gluten-free/CF since September 03

    • No gluten allergy because I don't have classic symptoms of celiac
      after you get yourself squared away, these docs need reporting.  out right lying to you...
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Hi CeliacMommaX2, 'Yes, you must treat oats like wheat in a situation where gluten free oats cause the same response. I would also not use pots or pans for your daughter, that you have cooked oats in, as there is always a chance that there are traces left in the pans after washing up.  It's better safe than sorry. 
    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Alex the good news is you have found a great site with useful information and warm support! You need to work with your doctor to get a diagnosis but there are plenty here who have had similar experiences: http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/search/?&q=panic%20attack so it sounds like your on the right lines   Take heart that you have probably found the cause now rather than later.  Follow CyclingLady's excellent advice above and go for celiac screening asap. For tests to work you need to be eating gluten for some time. That is a scary prospect when you've finally experienced some relief but it's for a limited time period, you can get support here along the way and if you choose to you can go gluten-free at the end and get relief whatever the results.  Once you're done testing and off the gluten you will be in a much better position to nail the lifestyle. That may mean some pre-planning, maybe taking a backpack with some gluten-free snacks with you, at least until you find the places you can reliably eat at. There are apps and sites that can help and probably local support groups in NYC as well: https://www.google.co.uk/?ion=1&espv=2#q=new%20york%20gluten%20free%20restaurants With research you'll also get to know what fast food options are viable, what readily available candy bars are ok etc. I can eat Mcdonalds fries for instance, which can come in handy if I'm away from my kitchen or supplies. Most starbucks or equivalents will have at least a gluten-free snack bar. So although a pain in the arse, it's doable and the health payoffs MORE than make up for the hassle.  Good luck! 
    • to biopsy or not?
      I ordered the cookbook the same day you recommended it.  I am SO excited!  I actually cried looking through the book!  I honestly don't believe I am good at all in the kitchen.  I am lucky enough to have a husband who cooks everything when he's home.  The only thing I felt skilled at in the kitchen was baking.  I made all of my kids' birthday cakes for the last 8 years.  I was sad thinking that we wouldn't have anything good for a birthday cake.  I mean, I've tried gluten free cake from a box, but it was just ok.  It wasn't amazing the way a homemade cake can be.  So now I have hope.  Hope that maybe my non-celiac kids will enjoy a birthday cake still.  My daughter (the most-likely-to-be-celiac one) never really ate birthday cake to begin with.   So this summer is her birthday and we will find out if it's good!  Thank you for the recommendation!!!   Janis
    • antibiotic for my 6 year old- could it have gluten?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
