7 Months Gluten Free, Lactose Intolerant Now?

3 posts in this topic

I have been 7 months gluten free. The past 7 months have had its up and downs. The occasional "whoops!" or the " Im not feeling right" But for the past 2 weeks I have been feeling off in my stomach. And to top it off this morning I had Diarreah. I never get that. It wasnt even a symptom of mine before I was diagnosed. A month ago my gastro told me to go lactose free for 2 weeks because I was complaining that I felt off again. Since my ttg numbers were 4, he said it couldnt be gluten so he told me to go dairy free. I never did because I didnt think that dairy ever affected me at all. Could I have become lactose intolerant this late after going gluten free? Or maybe I just have a stomach bug? This is what I ate yesterday.


gluten-free corn flakes, milk, banana


Black grapes


Homemade Sweet potato-peanut bisque(sweet potatos, peanut butter, extra virgin olive oil, onions, ginger, garlic, gluten free veggie broth and gluten free veggie juice)

Fresh spinach with Kraft balsamic.



small piece of plain chicken with pepper, small peice of steak, carrots


gluten-free Coconut macaroons with milk.

Now I ususally have milk everyday so to get diarreah this monring is weird. Could it have been something else? I cant think of anything else that I introduced into my diet that would be different. Maybe Im just crazy!

Surprisingly your doctor gave you good advice about going dairy free for awhile. I suggest you go dairy and soy free for at least a month to see if there is any improvement. And keep a food diary, you may find another food that bothers you (like corn).

You are not crazy, it's the gluten that drives us crazy. No two people have the same symptoms that follow any order so it's always a guessing game.

I agree with horsesoul to try soy free for a test. Soy was my big missing puzzle piece. I thought I developed casein intolerance ect and it was just the soy. Your Kraft Balsamic dressing would have soy bean oil and perhaps the gluten free chicken broth. The only brand I have found soy free for chicken broth is kitchen basics and better than boullion (chicken and beef). Soy hides under vegetable oil, vegetable protein ect. The FDA has different rules for soy, if its refined soy bean oil then it doesn't have to be declared because supposedly the protein is removed and those with soy allergies can safely eat it. Not me and many others so its a bummer and I find reading labels harder for soy than gluten. It is so worth it though, its made me 99% better (still accidently get contaminated because with my job I have to eat out a lot). It may be worth a try for you to try it for a few weeks. Also, sometimes food intolerances can take up to 72 hours to show up so a food diary can help figure that out a little easier. Soy gets me within a few hours and gluten gets me the next morning. A food diary will help you see a possible pattern. Good luck and keep us posted! :)

    • 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!
