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.

      Cristiana and Flowerqueen, I haven't been officially diagnosed as Celiac but I had a DNA test in March 2015 which revealed I had the Celiac gene on both sides so it was advised that I have a test to see if I did have it. I didn't but I went off gluten immediately and haven't "knowingly" eaten it since. Before the DNA test I didn't have the nausea and trembling type feelings that I do now but I occasionally got the shortness of breath which I used to put down to being a smoker. (I quit almost 16 years ago) Anyway, this morning I woke with the nausea feeling, the trembling, loss of appetite, feeling of doom again but it happens so intermittently. I do have some unavoidable stress in my life all of a sudden so maybe it's all connected some how. But on the plus side my bowel movements have returned to normal and I go often especially after waking and having coffee. (Oh, and Cristiana don't worry about tmi with me. You would have to try pretty hard to offend me and nobody has done it yet. haha) I always think the worse to. The internet and Google are great but information overload becomes a real possibility creating some frightening scenarios. It's just interesting that the coffee with the MCT Oil (Brain Octane is the actual name) and butter makes me start feeling better and the nausea, trembling, anxiety seem to be extinguished by it but coffee with low fat milk doesn't although I do get more energy from it. I did read somewhere that MCT Oil was good for gut health though and if I had to describe it it would be like it just smooths over all the bad stuff with a nice soft lining.  It was recommended in my DNA test that I have more fats in my diet and low processed foods but I occasionally have gluten-free biscuits, gluten-free ice-cream (my true weakness) and gluten-free weet-bix. I've checked most of these items ingredients and they are pretty good. There is a lot of gluten free rubbish out there though which I completely avoid. Thanks GFinDC for your reply. I was going to speak to my Naturopath when I see her about Immune Health. My plan usually involves the Liver Tonic I mentioned above and heavy on the L-Glutamine which, apparently, is supposed to be excellent for gastrointestinal health but I'm not going to supplement with anything just yet until I get my blood work done and see if it reveals any deficiencies. I'm suspecting Iron though. Because I've had recent tests all coming back good I'm thinking a possible scenario would be a die-off effect I've heard of where all the bad bacteria have been killed off but your body can't rid itself of them quick enough so you actually feel or get worse before you get better. That's where the detox strategy comes in and I'm assuming replacing them with Good Bacteria via Probiotics. Again, this is what I have read in the past but it does seem to make sense in some cases. I do feel better in having found these forums though.  
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      You are doing well.  We didn't have a "normal" tTG for 6 years and were also very strict.  Kiddo was dx with hypothyroid as well and tTG fell a lot after getting on meds for that but still didn't normalize.  Finally cam down within the last 6 months (this after a trip to THE Celiac Dr. several years ago).  I wish we had done a DGP much earlier and I had pushed for that sooner.  I would start there and see what happens.     Sounds like you're doing everything right though. Sometimes it just takes time. 
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Remember that you have to be eating a normal gluten diet for the testing so don't cut back & don't stop eating it. Make sure they do the full, current celiac panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
