Problem With Dairy Too?
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi there

I am gluten intolerant and am almost ready to start a gluten-free diet.

I've noticed for a couple of years that I seem to react to eating cheese. Almost immediately, often whilst still eating it, my face gets very tingling and hot and this continues for several minutes :huh: Could this be an intolerance to cheese or dairy? Has / does anyone else experience this? Could this be related to being gluten intolerant?

Any thoughts are welcome!!

Sounds like it could be a milk allergy. Do you notice any reactions to any other dairy products? (Milk, yogurt, ice cream?)

No, just cheese <_<

Then, as milk, yogurt, and ice cream all contain casein (the primary) milk protein), whey (another milk protein), and lactose (the primary milk sugar), it is unlikely that it is dairy that's the problem.

Perhaps you are sensitive to rennent? Do you always have the same type of cheese or cheese from the same family?

I get these symptoms from cheese. I can drink milk though and I'm not casein intolerant. Cheese contains large amounts of histamines...I believe thats what causes the reaction in my case. I get the reaction with some other foods that are high in histamines too.

The other thing it could be....if you are sensitive to MSG you might react to cheese since its got extemely high amounts of free glutamates.

Do you react to other fermented or aged foods?

Hi Rachel :)

this is interesting. I've never thought about food containing histamines ;) . I have taken anti-histamine treatments before, prescribed by the doctor, for allergic reactions that I have to certain environmental factors. I often get a very itchy, sore throat. I haven't made any connection before with what I eat.

I'm very new to this (well, awareness that is, not symptoms :rolleyes: ) and I guess that part of my learning is that I'm beginning to become more aware of what's going on in my body etc.

Thanks for your post, that gives me something to think about.

Deb :)

Oh Rachel, forgot to ask in my last post - what is MSG? I'm not up on glutamates :rolleyes:

Thanks!

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
