Lactose Issue
0

4 posts in this topic

Hi - I think I may be having a lactose intolerance issue (I was tested for dairy allergy and do not have one). The doc told me to try different dairy and see how I react...

Last night we had tacos and I had some cheese on my tacos...I tried to take a lactaid pill as well...I had some mostly normal bowel movement today but slightly loose at end.

It seems that I have a bit of a reaction the morning after I get the lactose in my system...is this common?

And I've noticed all of my bread recipes have dairy or milk powder in them...is there a recipe anywhere for dairy free/gluten-free bread that I could make?

Many thanks. a

I struggle with whether I am lactose intolerant. For me I can do small amounts of some dairy without a problem. The harder the cheese the better. The higher the fat content the better.

So I use real cream in my coffee, and stick to parm, cheddar, swiss and mozz. Rich ice cream seems to work but ice milk is not okay.

I found some great mixes from Namaste Foods that are gluten, wheat, potato, soy, corn, dairy and casein free.

I found sliced bread that is so good you don't even need to toast it. samisbakery.com It is made in a non gluten free bakery but is made with Millet flour, brown rice flour, water, AL free Baking powder, seasalt, and flax seed.

I tried millet flax bread. I made my mom eat it to see if she would react, I never do, she does with just a trace. She did not have a problem.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

I am lactose intolerant, and it's one of the biggest problems (with regards to foods) that I have in my life. I love cheese. I love ice cream, and custard. I hate having lactose issues.

I buy our bread from a gluten free bakery, and they make our (special ordered) bread with rice milk. My husband tried to bake some for me at home, but it didn't go over very well. :huh:

I do my best to stay away from all lactose, but if I ever heard of anyone having real success with dairy-ease and the likes... I would be willing to try.

Even if your allergy test was negative, you might be intolerant to casein. if lactaid isn't making a difference, that could be the problem.

    • Are you vegan or vegetarian?   I am concerned about your lack of protein and fats in your diet.  These diets can work when you are also gluten free, but as a celiac you can be malnourished.  It is hard to heal when you are slowly starving yourself.   No offense, but some newly diagnosed celiacs end up with food disorders.  Perhaps working with a dietician can help.   What actually are your blood glucose levels?  Did you know that just as Hashimoto's is common with celiacs, so is type 1 diabetes?   Ask your doctor for antibodies testing for Type 1 diabetes (TD1), if your blood glucose levels are not in the normal  range.  You can develop TD1 (LADA) at anytime.   For adults there is a "honeymoon" period which can last for up to five years.  Be on the watch for other AI issues (besides TD1) too.   It is so important to monitor your health after a celiac disease diagnosis!  
    • He was not IGA deficient.  I'm still hoping we can convince the base GI to approve his referral.   Thanks for that thread about TTG Igg.  That's exactly what I was wondering. 
    • Star Anise Foods  rice paper and spring rolls are gluten free they have brown and white rice versions. I have not had issues with these in the past when I used to use them. Should be able to find them on amazon.
    • Hi strawberrymoon, If you are having a blood sugar problem, that can cause nerve damage and tingling.  Nerve damage is often associated with diabetes.  You can ask your doctor to check your A1C level to get an idea how it has been doing. It would probably help your glucose levels to stick with a paleo style diet, avoiding most carbs.  Carbs and meats have a different affect on blood glucose.  Carbs tend to spike blood glucose while meats even it out. There are a lot of negative changes that can happen with high blood glucose.  It is wise to try and get it under control ASAP.  My brother has lost most of his vision in one eye now from high blood glucose.  And he has the tingling symptoms you described.  The tingling can progress to pain in time.  My brother chose to ignore his diabetes and is paying the price for it.  He is doing better at it now but the damage is done. Yes, B-12 deficiency can cause those kind of nerve symptoms.  But if you have high blood sugar that is the more common cause.   Diabetes is not a rare condition.
    • I have been living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for two years, and finding gluten-free food is proving more difficult than I thought, even if I am cooking my own food. Wheat flour, called "bot mi" in Vietnamese, seems to creep into a lot of stuff nowadays. What's more, manufacturers do not feel it is important to list bot mi in the ingredients on a food's packaging unless it is a principle ingredient in the food. In other words, soy sauces or wraps with just a tiny bit of wheat flour added to add a touch of thickness or pliability are not guaranteed to list the ingredient. For some genetic reason, Vietnamese people are not nearly as susceptible to food allergies as Westerners - it probably has something to do with exposure to less hygenic foodstuffs having built up an immunity over hundreds of years - so it is not really considered important to split hairs in that department over here. Anyway, I love rice paper but have often gotten glutened by it when I have it. Can any celiac who could tell if a product had gluten by more than just the ingredient list on the back let me know a definitively gluten-free rice paper brand? I know that very few rice paper brands actually list wheat flour in the ingredients, but I don't 100% trust the ingredients list for products made by Vietnamese companies. Call me paranoid. By the way, I have a neurological condition that irreversably breaks down my immune system when I ingest gluten, so I don't want to experiment with trial by fire here.
