Did You Go Gf And Casein Free At Once?
0

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone!

I know many of you have multiple intolerances/allergies. My question is....Did you change your diet all at the same time? Or did you take gluten out for awhile and then gradually take casein (soy, yeast, etc.) out after you had been on the gluten-free diet for a little while.

I just broke down and had a gluten-free candy bar, but it isn't CF...I'm wondering...am I trying to do too much too fast?

Should I scold myself for eating some dairy/casien or should I be proud of myself for staying gluten-free for nearly a month?

Please help. I appreciate everyone here!

Much hugs. God Bless. -Julie B)

:rolleyes: I went gluten and casein free all at once because I had no choice. I was so ill only applesauce and rice would stay down. However, if you know you have problems with both why not get totally well? You are worth feeling great! No, I didn't say just better, I said great. Congratulate yourself for the distance you have come but remember the race isn't over until you finish. You can do this! We all know that. Remember, too, that the ends of the villi grow back, when you are gluten free. So eventually the milk allergy may clear up on its own. Help it along as much as possible. No need for illness, if you know what to do about it.

My experience is that it is too hard to stop everything at once. I've a list of about 12 foods I must drop. I'm getting used to living without one before going to the other.

I did the two separately because I found out about them a year apart. Whichever works best for you - I don't think there's a "right answer" to this one.

Thanks you guys!

Nah, I didn't figure that there is really a "right and wrong" answer...

I was just curious how others handled it and if ya'll had any successes or failures that I could learn from. B)

I appreciate all the feedback!

Hey, I made a super good dinner tonight- 100% gluten-free/CF! It was BBQ pork, baked beans, and deviled eggs! I didn't even miss the garlic toast :P Gosh, it was good!

Well, have a good evening.

Much hugs. -Julie ;)

i stopped gluten first, then lactose, and finally corn. since giving up all three i am finally feeling back to my normal self. It took about three months of experimenting before i figured out what was bothering me. I strongly reccomend elimination diets.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
