Casein Intolerance
0

8 posts in this topic

1) Can anyone point me to a study/paper that talks about casein intolerance and damage to intestinal villi? Is it an autoimmune reaction or a food sensitivity?

2) For those that have determined they are casein intolerant, do/did you get a reaction every time you ingested dairy?

I've been on the gluten-free diet for 7 weeks. I've consumed some dairy most every day. I've been having a few bad days interspersed with my mostly good days. If casein (or lactose) was a problem, wouldn't I have a reaction everytime/everyday?

Well, I think there should be some good info on casein or at least dairy right on the celiac.com site. Just click "Site Index" on the left hand side menu for a bunch of good info on all sorts of stuff.

My casein reactions didn't become noticeable for probably a year or so I guess. Once it did, I had to avoid it awhile to see the improvement.

As for having a reaction every time or every day, I think that can only happen if the reaction quickly passes, so that you can see the highs and lows. Again, for me it was more of a constant until I got the stuff out of my system.

So, I'd think the best way to get the definitive answers you seek is to try avoiding all dairy for a few weeks and see how you feel. Then if you still aren't sure, try having it and see if you notice the difference.

Incidentally, I didn't see much change from the gluten-free diet until about six months had passed. So it can take awhile depending on your particulars. Other people report a very quick change from adding/eliminating a food.

1. No, sorry. You can go to www.enterolab.com, but there's only a little info there.

2. Well, it's like gluten (or smoking for those who used to), once I got off it, yes, but when I was eating it all the time, no.

3. You can give it a try by getting off it for a couple weeks. It's not easy, but it's really worth it if it has the possibility of making you feel better. Then when you're off it and you've tried it again to see if you're sensitive, you can determine whether it's the casein or the lactose by trying it with lactaid. If it's the lactose, it shouldn't bother you if you take lactaid, but if it's the casein, it will.

That's an interesting idea. I found out by having some soy cheese that had casein in it. I have no idea what the point of that soy cheese is if it's essentially still a dairy product :huh: But without the lactose that does help narrow it down some I guess.

Yea, I guess you could do that kind of test with a non-dairy creamer, too. I just don't see how they get away with saying they're non-dairy, then milk is on the back listed as an allergen!!

Mostly at this point, I'm just curious. I find the autoimmune reaction interesting.

As far as my diet goes, I think 7 weeks gluten-free is too soon to start tinkering with other things. I do feel better. It's just the bad days seem to happen without a cause. Which because of my personality drives me a little batty.

If I'm not damaging my insides, I'm willing to give gluten-free at least 6 months to stabilize.

Yea G F when lower case, next to each other comes out gluten-free. Only causes a problem if someone is talking about their girlfriend. Same thing with C D and celiac disease.

cornhusker---

if you are still damaged from celiac/gluten, then you could potentially 'just' be temporarily lactose intolerant. have you heard the description about where lactase is located and why unhealed celiacs are temporarily lactose intolerant?

if not-i'll write back.

    • Kidney disease question
      GFR ranges are very strange.  We went through this with my husband.  Did you notice in Icelandgirl's link that there is no range that is considered good and normal?  I just had mine tested and the report said that normal was > 60.  As your report says, your value is only a problem if there is other evidence of kidney damage.
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt I'd love answers to this one too. My own levels have varied since I have been monitored, over the last three or so years.   I asked my GP about this and I seem to recall she said to me that levels of hydration affect this number.  i.e. when my figures were in the 90s it was because I was super-hydrated. When my numbers were in the 70s she wasn't worried, either! I'm hoping someone with a better knowledge of these matters will chime in but the last time I was tested my gastroenterologist was very pleased with my kidney and liver function numbers - so it seems to me that when my own numbers were in the 70s on a couple of occasions I must have been  less well hydrated when I had the test those times? And that these numbers are therefore subject to variation.

      Kareng is correct.  There are also a number of good reference books on celiacs and gluten free issues.  Also several magazines.  The main thing is to find out the hidden and unusual sources of gluten, and also to be very careful when eating at restaurants.  I got glutened quite a few times at restaurants before I learned to triple check and began to find safe places.  Good luck. 
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi Matt, Since celiac impacts the whole body...I think kidneys are affected.  I have kidney stones and they are super fun(not) and my urologist says that it's fairly common with celiac and malabsorption.  I don't know specifically about kidney disease, but when I was in the hospital passing my stones...prior to passing, my GFR was around 60.  A few weeks later when my doctor did bloodwork it was 87.  Here is some info that may help.   https://www.kidney.org/atoz/content/gfr
    • Most New Celiac Patients Show Normal Bone Density
      Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease. View the full article

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
