Dairy

6 posts in this topic

Since going gluten free 4 months ago I cut out dairy too as I felt it was bothering me.

I have tried reintroducing it several times but seem to feel ill after a couple of days of eating any.

I am at the moment not eating any.

When I saw the dietitian in January she seemed surprised that i was having problems and said it may be the lactose.....but I have tried dairy with the lactaid enzymes and its makes no difference.

I asked about casein and whey and she said that was mainly a childhood thing and couldn't see it happening now.

The thing is I don't really get the stomach or bowel issues with the dairy but awful aching in my body and feeling really unwell.It sometimes makes me feel out of breath too with a runny nose and congested.

maybe these are not normal symptoms of an intolerance to dairy.

maybe someone else can tell me what symptoms they have to dairy.

because she has said this to me I have held back from going to the docs to ask if there is a test for me to see if its the casein in dairy.

I had read that it can cause antibodies like gluten does .

can anyone give me any info on it or experiences.

I also have underactive thyroid and osteoporosis.

Obviously with the osteo it would benefit me to have some Dairy but I get calcium from other sources so not too worried about that but I do miss it really more than the wheat gluten thing really.

In England we get bread and pasta etc on prescription but have had to pick the bread that is gluten free wheat free and dairy free as I also seem to react to the codex wheat starch that is used in some foods even though it is the accepted level.

Any experiences on the dairy symptoms or tests for dairy you have had in later life would really help me.Thank you.

Diagnosed coeliac dec 2010 from bloodtests and biopsy.

I have not had any testing for lactose or casein except what my body tells me. I waited two years before trying lactose, and I was fine. Initially when I was lactose intolerant the Lactaid used to work for me, but later (I guess when I had done more damage to my gut) it no longer helped, and I had to eliminate the lactose altogether and wait until my gut healed. Now I can eat ice cream with the best of them :D I don't think that just over three months is a long enough time for you to have healed.

I too have read that in some celiacs that they react the same way to casein as they do to wheat / barley / rye.

HI!

I was intolerant to lactose for about 5 years prior my celiac diagnosis. The lactose free milk didn't do me any good. I reacted to it also. When my upper endoscopy came back with only Marsh1- beginning of the celiac disease, I imediately went gluten free. I didn't knew that I should eat gluten until all my test were done. I had my incomplete blood work for celiac done when I was gluten free. It came back "negative". After that I saw allergologist. I asked her to check for wheat and milk. She injected me with them. She didn't give me the pric test.

The wheat was negative, and milk reacted. I developed allergy to milk in the ADULTHOOD. Your nutritionist is wrong! It is possible. I'm the living proof of it.

I checked symptoms for the milk allergy. It incluted sinus problems and also water build up behind ears - I had both and always wondered why my medicine for dust mites allergy didn't work. I'm 8 months casein free and finaly I don't have to blow my nose every minute.

The spot where I had wheat injected became red after hour, and the irritation lasted for more than 24 hours. The result from that: 100% wheat intolerant, celiac disease?.

Month later I had the pric test for wheat. It was negative. I don't have wheat allergy. :)

With the pric test you can check any allergy. My allergologist had samples from things that I didn't even knew that people can have allergy to.

There are these tests to check for lactose intolerance that I know of:

1. the breathing test. You would have to drink 1 cup of some liquid and then you would bread to a small device every 20 minutes for about 2-3 hours. It will messure the concentration of gas comming from your mouth.

2. the blood test. You would have to drink milk, or something else (i don't know what) and the technitian would take your blood every hour. I think it's 4 times.

Hi, I had the same symptoms of runny nose/congestion/out of breath, etc when I reintroduced dairy after 6 months gluten free/dairy free. At first it was not very bothersome and I would take an allergy med sometimes so I could have some cheese. Then all of the sudden in Feb of this year I started having severe allergic reactions to dairy. My lips tingle and my tonuge swells up now if I eat it. I have had to cut it out completely again. I am waiting for an appointment to get tested for milk allergy and also get an epipen to carry for emergencies. When I posted about this in another thread many people here confirmed that allergies can get worse over time and can show up at anytime in life. My mom told me I had trouble with runny nose and congestion as a toddler when she gave me dairy. She cut it out of my diet for a while but gave it to me again when she thought I outgrew the allergy. They used to think that kids outgrew allergies but I think they are now finding that many people get the allergy back later in life or that it manifests itself in another way while "dormant". For me I had asthma all throughout my childhood and early adulthood while eating dairy. My asthma attacks had gotten more frequent and more severe up until i went gltuen free and dairy free. The asthma, runny nose and brethign problems came back with dairy. Your dietician is not up on the latest on food allergies if she/he thinks you can't develop them later on. IMO you need to find a new dietician, but I know that may not be possible with your health system in England. Not sure if you can get testing for milk allergies there, but if not you may just want to treat this as a milk allergy, know that it can get worse at anytime and stay dairy free.

Thanks so much for all the replies.

I think maybe like mushroom says I need to give it longer and then maybe try again.

I do believe the dietician is maybe wrong as some of you say and I will find out more.

I know its something to do with the proteins in Dairy (as in cows milk) that we react to same as the protein in gluten.

I have reacted to egg white for years but not always since childhood again, it was after my second pregnancy and think it is the protein in the egg white that does it but with that I just throw up continually.That was an allergy that came on later in life.Funny how we seem to crave and eat all the stuff we react to till we cant eat it anymore lol.

Thanks again for all your answers....what a great site, done all my learning on here, not had any from the medical profession

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
