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.
