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.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
