Cheese Problem But Cream Soup Not? Why?
0

6 posts in this topic

I dropped dairy awhile ago because I found that even lactose-free dairy was bothering me. (stomach pain and C) About a month and a half ago, I had risotto at a restaurant. I was fine. Then couple weeks later tried 1/4 cup cheddar cheese with a meal one night. Didn't work. :( Couple weeks after that, I tried a cream soup at a fancy restaurant. Only ate about half of it, but I was fine. Oh, when I tried the cheese at home, I was eating all my usual safe foods all week, so it wouldn't have been something else that caused problems.

Why would a creamy sauce/soup be OK but not cheddar cheese? Do others have this same experience? I'm going to Maggiano's in a couple of days, and I'm already thinking about what I want to order! (I don't eat out very often.)

There are some people who can tolerate dairy if it's been heated. Many times when people have IgE allergies and go to the Dr. for a food trial they will start with baked in dairy (a cake for example) and move to "heated" dairy (like on pizza or the like) before moving to straight "on your cereal" dairy.

You could react less to things that have been heated.

Dairy is strange with me.

Butter, Cream in many items I cook/bake = no reaction

Cheese / Milk = can feel a bit bloated

Yogurt = no way

Aged cheese and yogurt have a lot of natural amines. Cream, butter, or very fresh milk don't.

That's interesting! I looked up high amines foods. I can eat dark chocolate, pecans, bananas, and mushroom, which were all listed as high or very high. So I don't think that's what I'm reacting to. But thanks for the suggestion.

The suggestions about baking are interesting. I don't bake anything for myself because I can't tolerate so many grains. I'd have to bake with white rice flour and corn meal! LOL!

Anyway, if my eating out doesn't get to me, I'll try cooking something with a touch of butter and see what happens. Would love to eventually be able to eat something with heated cheese. (The cheese I ate that bothered me was cold cheese on top of a baked potato.) I miss dairy SO much! We'll see. I'm almost to my one-year anniversary, and I know it may take another year for my stomach to heal.

    • So my heart has been doing weird stuff post gluten challenge. Skips beats, arrhythmias, chest pain. It was getting a bit better then worse again in July.   My cardiologist has done 2 stress tests, halter monitor, and we have not caught anything other then harmless pvc's. But I KNOW this is not right for my heart and it has gone wacky out of sync and we never catch it on a damn test. All of my doctor's were connected out of a larger practice, so the GI, cardio, neuro, and primary care can all see the mountains of tests I had and think I am a nutcase the moment I walk through the door. I will admit that I informed the old GI about the DGP test being positive and I sent over some info on the test as they were basically using TTG and old gliadin tests, and they were receptive. But for the most part, I do not trust doctors. I was once told I was in false labor when I actually had 13 gallstones and an infection in my bile duct. I have more horror stories, as we all do. So, my protein and RBC were low in the hospital but all up to good levels now so it is not a vitamin deficiency. My heart has already skipped multiple beats today. The other day, it again went out of rhythm for just 20 seconds or so. I am not drinking coffee or alcohol because of the acidity, so it is not that. I was glutened on August 24th and probably once in July. Does anyone have weird heart issues that vanish eventually? If so, how long does it take? I am an over-thinker, which has its pros and cons. I know we are at an increased risk for CAD which is not really my concern right now. My gut is inflamed, my thyroid is inflamed and my adrenal gland was effected by all of this. I sort of wonder if an exposure to gluten causes some kind of myocarditis, an inflammation that would not be picked up a sonogram per se, and may eventually vanish with a gluten free diet. Has anyone ever had experience with myocarditis? I did a lot of reading on Roemheld syndrome, gastro-cardio syndrome, which is basically a set of cardio symptoms resulting from your gut. Praying it is just that! I just feel like now that I have a diagnosis, I need to rebuild a team of doctors that I feel have my back. This is a sucky disease that can have a lot of ill effects and I need a team I feel is intelligent, supportive and willing to research. I already have a new GI and a great Endocrinologist. I am seriously contemplating a new cardio and neuro as they both talk to me like I am a 12 year-old with "hysterical girl syndrome".
    • I was not officially diagnosed with narcolepsy when I was younger and still haven't.  However, even in my junior high and high school years and on through my college years staying awake was always a struggle for me.  maybe the gluten was a factor back in junior high and just didn't realize it.    There were times in church and other times I would just BAM fall asleep without warning.  Frustrating and somewhat embarrassing to say the least.  Now that I have been off gluten for close to a year now, the "feeling" of needing to sleep is becoming less and less.  Still have periods of sudden sleepiness, but not as often any more.
    • when they first came out, I read the ingredients on them, and they don't seem to contain malt.  But the company, at that time specifically posted on the website that they  are not gluten-free.  So I don't drink them.
    • Rum is naturally gluten free, but in cases where it is flavored, spiced, etc. you have to be careful where they might add a malt in the natural flavorings. I been using Admiral Nelsons coconut rums in cooking for finishing off stir frys, and adding a bit of flavor to caramelized ingredients for a few years now, I have never had issues with those. As for the Morgan, I would be careful with the spiced version as they might use a malt based ingredient in it. I did a bit of research and like you found no conclusive evidence to if it contains gluten or not. The plain rum from them is listed on many and been tested by several groups and has come up gluten free. On a side note if your a celiac or have intestinal damage I would avoid alcohol or drink in moderation. I personally only use it in cooking.
    • Hi, It seems they advertise it as a malt beverage.  Malt is made from barley normally, so it would not be gluten-free.  Unless they specify the malt is corn malt, it is always assumed to be barley malt per FDA labeling regs.
