Need Some Advice.... Lactose Intolerance And Now Egg Intolerance
Posted 06 December 2010 - 10:52 AM
this is my first post and I just wanted to get some advice.
Heres my story, when I was about 4 or 5 I became allergic to peanuts. So ive grown up always being concious of what I eat.
Then when I was 23 I became Lactose intolerant. Now, at the age of 31 I think Ive become egg intolerant.
I dont notice any problems when eating gluten or wheat, but after searching online I came across information suggesting that celiac disease can appear as lactose intolerance first., Im wondering if Ive had it all along and it caused the lactose intolerance and now the egg intolerance.... does that sound plausible?
Could anyone offer any advice... Im incredibly sad about the prospect of having to avoid foods with peanuts, diary, egg and wheat for the rest of my life.

thanks for replying.
Yeah, I read that continued exposured to glutent and the allergic reaction caused by it causes damange to the villi in the intestines, which disables the ability to deal with lactose.
I guess Im just wondering, because Ive had lactose intolerance so long, and never (even now) had a prob with gluten... but the egg thing is making me wonder.
I had food allergies as a young child, but grew out of them. Jump ahead about 40 yrs and I become lactose-intolerant. That goes about the same for 15 yrs and SUDDENLY I have all kinds of issues. After a couple of years of trying doctors and simply writing everything that goes in my mouth down in a journal, I find I am gluten-intolerant, the lactose-intolerant has jumped in severity 700%, egg-intolerant, nut-intolerant, rice-intolerant and bean-intolerant. I had never read that lactose-intolerance is masked gluten-intolerance, but I have read that a large percentage of gluten-intolerant, or Celiac, are also lactose-intolerant. I have discovered it runs in my father's side of the family and nobody knew what the problem was. I have also read that those gluten-intolerant are often bothered by a myriad of other things.
