A Question For Those Of You With Dairy/lactose Intolerance

An intolerance to milk protein, casein, can give similar symptoms as celiac, so once you are gluten free it's easier to see if that's the case. The way to test it is to see how you react to dairy products that have little to none lactose, like hard cheese. I'd think that if you eat hard cheese and take a couple Lactaids and still get a reaction, that you need to avoid dairy all together. But if you only react to stuff with lactose in it then you'll probably be fine with moderate amounts of dairy accompanied by Lactaid. BUT if you are still eating gluten, you won't know for sure what you are reacting to!
Also, if you have celiac, you can be temporarily lactose intolerant, in which case it might change once you've gluten free long enough for your intestines to heal.

Here is something strange, since going gluten free my lactose intolerance has gotten worse. My doc said it's only coincidence.
