Milk/casein Anyone Else

12 posts in this topic

I kept feeling like I had been glutened. I had intestinal pain, D and gas, headache, the works. I knew that I hadn't had any gluten. I don't eat out and eat the same things over and over. I decided to cut out dairy 2 weeks ago. All of those symptoms went away. I was bored with it and sick of black coffee so I bought some cheese and Lactaid milk yesterday. I made a pizza with the cheese and used some of the milk in mashed potatoes and in coffee. This morning I woke up with a migraine, D, terrible gas pain and D, D, D...The cheese said no lactose per serving and the lactiad milk is lactose free. Is this what casein does to someone? If so, casein makes me feel as bad as gluten.

I was doing ok with no milk but I cant find any rice milk around here that is gluten free. All we have in our stores is Rice Dream. I caved and bought Lactaid now I am suffering.

Do you have a good blender? Rice milk is easy to make! 2 cups water, 1/2 cup cooked rice (packed well but not like a brick) and some add a little sugar, honey or even vanilla to it. Blend it up for a few minutes. Keeps for 3-5 days.

We are dairy free d/t allergies but many people with Celiac have dairy issues as well.

Thanks for the recipe. I am going to try it. I have a blender that I got a long time ago that I used a few times before I knew better to make smoothies with Rice Dream. I guess I could stick it in the dishwasher to get it really clean and it should be safe that way.

Do I need to strain this or anything?

I am like you, just feeling like I was still getting gluten somehow, and I am extreme in what I put in my mouth. There was no possibility that I was getting gluten. I too have stopped the dairy, and I feel good! A lot more energy, completely normal stools, my ears are not driving me insane with itching, and the roughen areas on my fingers are improving. I thought dairy was a digestive issue, but not thinking that now. I am not much on dairy anyway, so it doesn't bother me, just have to get a little more creative in my baking.

If you have a really good blender, no you don't have to strain it. I have a Vita-Mix which is like a turbo jet engine :) I don't think you need to strain it though or what little body it does have will be lost. If you find it's chunky, then yes I would try it strained.

You may also want to try looking at coconut mild creamer (I LOVED it when I had to be dairy free but I am not 100% sure if it's gluten free. Turtle Hill is the maker of the one I used.) Also, if you don't have issues with nuts, there are a lot of nut "milk" alternatives out there.

I am doing the same thing. I know i am not getting gluten but have not been feeling well -bloating, intestinal pain, and D. I have cut down on dairy and noticed a reduction in symptoms but really have just been strict about it for the last 2 days and I do feel better so far. I have tried lactose free coffee mate and cabot cheese and was wondering the same thing-is it lacotse or casein? How do you tell?

I think that if Lactaid milk and lactose free cheese is making you sick, it has got to be casein. The same thing happened to me with lactose free creamer and cheese. If these products are lactose free, they still have casein. A lot of people here have to avoid dairy. I guess we do too. ugh :(

Well I thought I was home free being gluten free for about 2 years and I saw you have been gluten free for about the same time. I am really mad about having to give up dairy!! But now I am at the point where I will give it up and eat the front lawn if it is the only thing that will make me feel better. I have an appointment with my GI tomorrow so I will see what he has to say but I think I may have solved my problem. Thanks!

After being strictly gluten free for six months, at the five-month-mark I started getting quite ill from dairy. In my case it appears to be lactose but I have eliminated dairy temporarily to be sure. It is very frustrating not to have gluten OR dairy but there are others here who must have much less. :( I hope to be one of those who is able to re-introduce dairy in the future because I REALLY miss it. LOTS.

Darn it - I teach cooking classes including various cheeses! :o

Giving up dairy for me is almost harder that giving up gluten! I made the rice milk with the above recipe. It turned out great!! Thanks for posting that. :)

Awesome! Glad it worked out for ya! My DS (who has Celiac) is allergic to dairy, egg, peanut, tree nuts, soy and banana. We know how to work around things :)

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
