Wheat Allergy And Lactose Intolernace
0

6 posts in this topic

For 5 years I was told I was gluten intolerant, recently had a few food allergy tests and was found to have a wheat allergy instead. does anyone know if this is handled same as gluten intolernce, and how do you handle lactose intolerance? Have not been tested for milk yet. If I stay away fro m all lactose I have less 'D'. Appreciate any help. EvieLS :unsure:

I have gluten and dairy intolerance...and recently figured out soy. I am still working through issues. I was drinking lactose free milk until a few days ago. I was able to find lactose free cheese and ready made dishes. However, upon reading this site trying to figure out my own issues...I realized that I may have an issue with casein too. I have cut out all dairy...period. I don't yet know if it's helping. So, if you are sure that you are ONLY intolerant to lactose, then there are options out there. Watch out for gluten-free bread though, as some of them contain milk. If you might be allergic to casein or whey, then Rice or almond milk taste pretty close to regular milk. There is also soy and coconut yogurt...none of which I prefer. There is dairy and gluten free ice cream, but it will contain soy. I have not found an ice cream that is free of all. Good luck! I'd find a Whole Foods, or similar store to shop...

you can have BOTH Gluten Intolerance & a Wheat Allergy. they both require a Wheat & Gluten Free Diet.

as far as lactose- everyone's different- some people say Lactaid helps, others have to eliminate it. and some on here say that after going Gluten free for some time- they've healed enough and can digest dairy.

good luck, im having a real tuff time giving it up.

You had a weak positive tTG, and a below normal total serum IGA which makes you a low antibody reactor, and you were told you had a gluten intolerance. Now I am not a gene person but it looks like you might have a genetic susceptibility to gluten intolerance/celiac, and now you have an allergy to wheat. This, in toto, says stay away from wheat.

In addition, if you are in fact celiac (and because of your low total serum IGA we can't tell) then you will probably be lactose intolerant because celiacs have damage to the villi in the small intestine which is where lactose is digested. Until that heals you will remain lactose intolerant. Been there, done that. Had a loverly bowl of ice cream this afternoon and enjoyed it all the more because I had to stop eating it in 1992 :(:D . Hang in there, stay away from gluten (and from lactose and possibly all dairy - you will have to check that out ) for a year or so and you should be fine. And when I say check that out, many lactose intolerant people (puts up hand :) I was) can still eat things that have been cultured, like yogurt, cheese, sour cream, or are low in lactose like buter (almost pure casein because all the lactose gets churned out as buttermilk). So give it a try and see how it goes. This whole thing is trial and error, but hopefully informed trials, and ah-ha errors. But if I were you I would consider myself a celiac. Period.

THX for all of you for answering me. I did have to go off lactose earlier..for 1& 1/2 year but may have had too much stress or overdid the ice cream or?? So back to no dairy, will hope to get where I can use it again. I use the almond and rice milks and our DD found oat milk recently, that is very good. Also my new GI has me watching fructose in foods now but do not think that is my problem. Probably gastritis causing the belly aches

since do not have them much from "D".

I sure have learned a lot from this forum over the years, was away for over a year due to computer complications but I could still hover and read..learn. Good wishes for all the allergy people or whatever. EvieLS (formerly) evie

Often Casine is in soy products... I have this problem. Soy cheese is rarely something I do.

    • 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 in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from 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! 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!
