I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 2 1/2 years ago and have done pretty well with my diet since. Now it seems I'm having major problems with dairy. I am going to try to cut out the dairy for a while because I've heard that there may be a link between Celiac and Dairy intollerance. I was just wondering if anyone has had this problem and if the pills for lactaid intollerance work or not.

The pills for lactose digestion might help if your problem is with the milk sugar lactose, but won't if your problem is with the protein casein. I definitely have an intolerance to the casein so can't have dairy in any instance. Years ago I tried lactaid milk and pills and they helped a little, but I still had problems and never knew why until I tested last year and found the casein intolerance.

I'm also casein intolerant. It's much like gluten intolerance in both the symptoms and the fact that it's permanent.

I'm starting to consider an IV permanently hooked up to make my life easier... It's getting frustrating. Thanks for your help

We can't tell you if lactase (the enzyme that is the main 'ingredient' in lactaid pills/drops) will help because we can't tell if the problem you have is with lactose (the milk sugar) and not producing enough of the enzyme internally to break it down, or if the problem is an intolerance to casein (the milk protein) and your immune system reacting to that protein. The only way to know is to test it. Try drinking some milk (you want something with both lactose and casein) AND taking lactaid (you could just test with the full strenght, store-bought lactaid milk; it's a little sweeter than regular milk), and seeing how you react, then comparing it to a regular glass of milk.

you guys are all very helpful....I just joined this site figuring I'd try it out and it's great. I guess it's more trial and error. It just gets to the point that you start wondering if you're ever going to enjoy eating again.

I just recently started this diet and already feel like a different person... maybe I'd feel even better if I get off dairy too... at least for a while and see what happens.

Damn, I could be perfectly healthy if I lived off steak and apples. Maybe that's what I'll do. Never worry about food allergies again! :lol:

Oh, and lots and lots of vitamin/mineral supplements.

I'm lactose intolerant & have been for 17 years. Check this site out: http://www.dietitian.com/milk.html. From what I read, i you might be able to try the lactaid milk with lactaid pills too (to ensure its not the lactose) and if you still get sick, then I would think it was the casein. I don't know, but that's what i would do. Id also ask the casein people if the symptoms are the same: nausea, bloating, gas, diahrea.

If you are lactose intolerant there are so many great substitues you can eat!

Oh and if you are sensitive to lactose, you would probably be sensitive to whey too (i think it depends on HOW sensitive you are).

When I was only lactose intolerant, the symptoms were bloating, gas, and diarrhea, but it wasn't too bad for me as long as I kept my consumption down and didn't consume milk on an empty stomach. After I became sensitive to casein, I started to get edema, and I just gave it up right then and there. No need to have old lady legs at my age.

Many people end up developing numerous food intolerances. Count me in the group. You also might want to try doing it first thing in the morning (so you haven't eaten anything else and you know its the milk/lactose/casein that is causing the reaction). It might be multiple foods, or may only be one. Good luck, and let us know what we can do.

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      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.
