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!

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
