New Symptoms Milk Problem?

4 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone, Hope someone can help. I have been gluten free for a little over 2 years now and was doing great until a few months ago when I started with some reflux and some occasional slight stomach pain and bloating. These are typical celiac symptoms for me but they were not at all as severe as they were before diagnosis. My Gi thought I might be ingesting small amounts of gluten so I decided to make my kitchen 100 percent gluten free in case I was getting CC from 2 kids and hubby. I noticed some improvement after a week but now I think I am having issues with dairy. I am noticing after ingesting alot of cheese I have a terrible night of bloating gas and backache. I am 2 days dairy free now and I have improved but still feel slightly bloated and my back aches but my reflux is gone. Is it possible if I was getting CC for a few months that that is why I am having the dairy problem? How long should it take for me to feel completely back to normal after going dairy free? My insides feel kind of beat up. Is this a normal reaction to an intolerance to dairy? I never had a problem before. Thanks

My understanding is that it could be days to a few months to recover and tolerate milk again if you've been getting some gluten cc. Or could be developing issues with milk no matter what. :-(

If after a few months dairy is still an issue, I'd guess that you have a dairy problem, or you are still getting gluten cc somewhere. Unfortunately, if you are in the USA, there's no regulation specifically for gluten-free foods, so a number of companies and restaurants are jumping on the gluten free band wagon without being as careful of gluten cc as we celiacs need. Very frustrating!

Are most of your processed foods from certified or trusted gluten free companies? If you have a few products that just have 'no gluten ingredients,' they might be worth checking out as a contamination source, too. Also, labeling-wise, the label 'also processed in a facility that processes wheat' is a voluntary label, not a madatory one, so some beans, nuts, and dried fruit can be processed in a facility with wheat and not have that label. You have to call them up to check, annoyingly.

Just have to throw this out there for what it's worth. I have been using raw dairy now to great effect for 4 months. I was not able to get to the farm (out of state) recently so I decided to try some Kefir from the local health food store made with pasteurized milk. Got very ugly boils all over my hips and the tops of my thighs. Kefir was the only thing different and this is similar to what I would get when consuming regular pasteurized milk years ago. Stopped the kefir and the boils are healing up and going away.

Processed foods ? you gave me something to think about -I dont eat much of them but I will be even more careful about that. Hopefully this passes as I love my dairy but I will look into raw dairy too.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
