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.
