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.

    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?  
    • Thanks for replying. You've been very helpful and given me some ideas of trying a few foods in small amounts. I wish I had rotated food months ago then it might not have got so bad. Thanks again and I wish you well.
    • Until my recent blood test results I've been having cinnamon and mint tea in the mornings, which seemed to have a positive effect calming the digestive system (and tastes good too!)  After the first step of diagnosis with high Iga TTg I took at look at the cinnamon sticks I make the tea with and it says "packed in a factory that may contain wheat, corn etc. etc." so that I guess would sound alarm bells for many I reckon. That said I'd imagine the way most of these herbs and spices are harvested isn't exactly gluten-free friendly yet I've seen quite a few recipes using it. How are people getting around this as I can't see any specific gluten-free certified cinnamon products out there? Really could do with my tea back P.S. I also have chamomile tea using the raw flowers which may have a similar background but seem to be less of a risk somehow?
    • If I do have to go back on gluten for a bit it'll at least be a temporary relief from the withdrawal symptoms (or at least what I hope are just withdrawal symptoms). Today's returning malady is acid reflux, something I'd thought I'd seen the back of recently. Really need that to calm down as PPIs the doctor gave before were evil medication and caused 10x more problems, possibly the worst I've ever felt whilst on those so won't be going back there! Although the scales seem to have stabilised in terms of weight loss in myself I feel like I'm wasting away at present, what with the random pulling sensations in muscles and tender head area I'm just scared for what other illnesses may be laying in wait related to the celiac genes  Think I'll head back for the ESR and CRP blood tests next week as the shoulder and temple pains are really worrying me right now, could just be the gluten intolerance but the other options are terrifying if not caught early. So much uncertainty, apart from the fact that none of this ever gets fully better (if at all)...
    • You're welcome! Good luck! And if you get nowhere there, remember, the higher you go, the nicer they get. Skip straight up to the top brass.
