Milk Allergy Question
0

9 posts in this topic

I know that some people are dairy/casein/milk/whatever intolerant after going gluten-free, but is it always a digestive reaction to it? I drank some milk earlier, and within maybe 10 minutes I started coughing deeply and my nose got stuffy. It passed within about 15 minutes. Has anyone ever had THAT kind of reaction instead of digestive? It just kinda freaked me out, but I don't really know if it was the milk or not. I haven't had a problem with it since going gluten-free 4 weeks ago, or ever in my life. It could have just been my allergies going haywire like they randomly do at times.

No, reactions to milk aren't always digestive, just as reactions to gluten aren't necessarily digestive, either. If I drink milk, I will get a lot of mucus and get breathing problems. One of my husband's cousins gets awful depression within a day if she drinks milk. My youngest daughter (14) gets incredibly hyper from it (but she will throw up from cheese). In fact, she will start bouncing off the walls, laughing hysterically for no reason at all and is generally uncontrollable when she eats ice cream (which she will do behind my back at her friend's houses, unfortunately). :blink:

A lot of people with celiac disease have temporary lactose intolerance until their villi heal. The enymes which break down lactose are located in the tips of the villi, so when they are damaged, lactose doesn't get digested properly and stomach problems usually occur.

Milk allergy is different from lactose intolerance and can be tested for by a skin prick test or a blood test. Your symptoms sound like milk allergy. Here is a link to help:

I have a casein intolerance. My symptoms are generally the same as with gluten, but I have a lot of systemic mucus when I have dairy as well. Casein intolerance is permanent like gluten intolerance. Lactose intolerance can be temporary due to damaged villi.

Like CarlaB, I am casein intolerant with symptoms that are similar to gluten intolerance, except also with casein my brain fog comes immediately, and I generally lose most feeling in my legs.

justme-

I had cut out lactose first, and realized soon after eating anything lactose free but not casein free, that it was casein. that is how i initially determined the difference. and because i cannot tolerate hard cheeses or yogurts (as most lactose intolerant people can). i have since re-tested casein and felt the same. it was trial and error for me.

I have a milk allergy (scratch test diagnosed). Um but it isn't very severe and I feel fine with a moderate amount of dairy in my diet. I don't drink milk, but I have ice cream occasionally and sometimes yogurt or cheese. Not often, though.

Sometimes my throat feels clogged after I have something with milk in it and I'll cough for awhile. I cough from other things too. My asthma seems to have gotten much worse and things like dust/mold in old houses and cigarette smoke cause a bad reaction (even with singulair). I cough and cough and cough. I wasn't like that before. My reaction to smoke and dust was just as bad when I avoided all milk products so I don't think it's making anything worse for me.

I had food allergy prick tests done last summer in addition to my regular inhalant prick tests, and the milk came out negative. Granted that was way before gluten-free, and I know things can change, but I don't think my coughing was a result of the milk. I've had a cough on and off for the past couple of weeks, and I've been coughing all day, so I think it was just coincidental (at least I hope so - I'll probably try milk again tomorrow). Apartment air and circulation is horrible.

my GI, internist, and allergist all said that prick tests for foods are only 50% effective. (not for environmental, that was 97% or similar).

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi cristiana, The paleo diet and the ketogenic diet would probably be helpful to read up on.  Snack on protein, not sugar and carbs.  You should have protein with every meal.  Protein reduces the meal total glycemic index and lengthens the time before you feel hungry again.   Sugar and carbs shorten the time to feeling hungry again. Or you could just ignore the whole thing and eat lots of sugary foods and carbs like my brother does.  And go half blind and have joint pain and nerve pain.  Those sugary snacks are a poor trade for your health.  
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi everyone.  There is a lot in the press here in the UK about prediabetes and diabetes.  I am an apple shape, as opposed to a pear, which I gather puts me more at risk.  I have a lot of relatives with types 1 and 2 diabetes.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago and the diet has been going so well that I am now putting on weight - I realise I have been eating far too many nice goodies from the Gluten Free Cake Aisle at Marks & Spencers, etc.   I had a bit of a shock this week as I have been very thirsty and as per usual started panicking so instead of doing that my neighbour encouraged me to see my doctor.  Good plan. The preliminary tests show no sugar in my urine; my blood glucose was high normal but I had just eaten.  She is sending me off for one of those HbaIC tests I think it is called just to be sure but she says she thinks I will be fine.  But to cut a long story short, I realise I have got to sort out this sweet tooth of mine. Wake up time! But I am confused. I have been searching a lot on line and there seems to be such contradictory information.  Only this week there was a news item on the BBC about the argument for fewer carbs/full fat - and then Public Health England disputing it.  Then, to go back to the original argument, the BBC filmed a chap at the doctors who had cut his carbs and ate full fat (as well as healthy fruit & veg) and he had lost weight and come off his diabetes meds. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-36345768 I'm thinking prevention is better than cure so I wanted to know, can anyone recommend a website or book that sets out a sensible eating plan, tried and tested, that they have discovered.    Or just any tips?  And I should say - I do get hungry between meals and for many years have suffered from the shakes when I don't eat enough - what is good food to eat for snacking?
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      I am in same boat, yesterday my stomach was churning and bloated and I don't know what the cause was.  How about keeping a food diary? Just note what you ate and how you feel. A few days may be sufficient to discern a pattern, either some rogue product or a previously unknown intolerance. I have read that after gluten is removed further intolerances which were hidden can become apparent.  I don't know whether you could cut yourself some slack from a full vegan approach whilst your body heals? If not, maybe you could substitute say milk with coconut milk or similar to give your body a break whilst keeping calcium levels high? If you join coeliac uk you can check your sauces etc on their gluten-free database, they'll also send you a book which became my bible until I got a hang of which brands I could eat safely. Finally, have you excluded cross contamination from pots and pans, toasters, shared condiments etc?  Good luck!
    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/

      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.
