Ugh ... This Time It Was Milk That Got Me

I haven't been around here for a while because I've been feeling SO much better after completely cutting out gluten. So yesterday I got overly optimistic. I've been eating yogurt with no problem (but no other dairy), and I thought I would try some goat milk (which is supposed to be easier to digest - maybe that's a myth) and see if I tolerated it. I did NOT. 36 hours later I still feel really really miserable, though at least the diarrhea has stopped. My glutening symptoms are more neurological although there is some GI stuff too. I just can't believe how much my stomach hurts right now.

Somebody tell me how to make it better. :(

Wow! I go to my Digestive Doc next week and besides the Celiac I gotta ask him about the Dairy too. I'm on 2nd day of stomach pain and diarrhea. This is horrible. I hope the best for you.

Thanks. I don't know if it's the casein or the lactose. I hope you figure out what's going on with you.

Hi! Have you ever tried coconut milk? I think it's really delicious, and it's opaque white so it really looks like milk. The taste is very mild, and doesn't taste like coconut at all. My favorite brand is "So Delicious" (original flavor). Makes great smoothies too. It probably works great in recipes too, but I haven't had a chance to try that yet.

I sometimes make smoothies with straight coconut milk with no additives. Doesn't "So Delicious" have additives in it?

It tastes great in desserts (especially with vanilla). It is also delicious in chowder. I reduced it on the stovetop and then add it last to simmer.

HI,

If you have a reaction to eating hard cheese like cheddar it is probably a casein issue. Most of the lactose is gone in hard cheeses. You can always take a couple lactaid pills when you eat the cheese just to be sure it is not lactose sugar. The lactaid digests the lactose, so if there was any trace of lactose left that would get rid of it. So you would be left with a chunk of casein to digest. You might need to do this test for 3 to 5 days in a row to see a solid reaction. This of course won't worlk if you are eating any other dairy during the time. Other dairy would muddy the waters and invalidate the test. Make sure the lactaid pills are gluten-free first though. It's an easy-peasy test really.

Any "additives" in "So Delicious" are vegetable or mineral based, natural and gluten free. They are all on the safe list on this site. I don't think there are any problems with it. Anyone have any other ideas about the different coconut milks? Do the additives make it no longer a whole food, and instead a processed food? Very curious about this. I'm interested in the digestibility of it for one thing. Bought some straight coconut milk in a can from Trader Joe's but haven't tried it yet. Hope it tastes as good.

Additive free coconut milk in a can does taste just as good as the ones with additives! I didn't even know Trader Joe's carried the canned type. It's even thicker and creamier too which makes it great used straight in recipes in place of cream, I imagine, or with water added for drinking. You learn something new every day!

      I don't think any of their food was " certified" gluten-free?  
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      Is there anyone else "pre-celiac" and asymptomatic like me who has had long-term success without losing their mind and still enjoying eating out without feeling like you have to stay in a plastic bubble?  This site has been helpful to me these past months.   I don't have it "Yet" and I am scared.  Sorry this is long but I wanted to be thorough: Two years ago I started experiencing GERD (heart burn, pain under my left rib cage, and regurgitation).  After trying probiotics, kambucha, kefir, apple cider vinegar, aloe juice, eliminating chocolate, citrus, tomatoes, spices, cinnamon, mint, alcohol, not eating 3 hours before bed, I was no better. I got an endoscopy/colonoscopy.  The dr found gastritis and esophagitis.  No hernia, infection or ulcer.  He started me on PPI.  I got 99% relief.  After 6 months I decided to go off PPI.  After suffering for 3 months, I went back to dr and back on PPIs for a year.  Because I am young, 39, and the PPIs have side effects, he discussed surgery with me. I went to a specialist. All the tests showed my esophagus was normal but my lower esophageal sphincter was not closing properly.  I was a good candidate and decided on the MUSE, (Endoscopically stapling the esophagus to prevent reflux) When the specialist did his endoscopy (1 year after previous one and before I was on PPIs regularly)  he saw villi damage that looked like textbook Celiac.  HUH?  I don't have ANY symptoms.  No cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, gas, discomfort, NOTHING.  He took biopsies and the results were "non-specific" perhaps "clinically latent celiac sprue" or a number of other things. So I took blood tests.  The celiac gene test was "susceptible" and I had "high" antibodies, but not positive.  Dr said go gluten-free to prevent  celiac. Did the PPIs cause the villi damage because I couldn't absorb the wheat properly and triggered celiac in me?  It sounds reasonable.   I wonder if now that I have had the MUSE and may be able to stop PPIs, will I be able to digest gluten better? Very interesting.  I plan to call a celiac specialist where I live to discuss this with him. I have not eaten gluten intentionally for 2.5 months now.  It did not help my GERD before the surgery.  Dr said they were unrelated anyway.  I am concerned about CC, breathing in, and accidental ingestion, but since I have no symptoms, I can never tell.  So I take glutenease when I eat out and glutamine powder to try to repair the damage.  How careful should I be since I don't have it "yet"? Amy's gluten-free frozen foods are great, and I read every label at Trader Joe's, eat off the gluten-free menu, corn tortillas @ Mexican, no soy sauce or imitation crab @ sushi, steamed veggies @ Chinese, & gluten-free pasta @ Italian. Member Lisa wrote, "Even though you eat as gluten free as possible, you probably consume close to that amount of gluten due to cross contamination in processed gluten free food and other exposures. ...Eating 100% gluten free is a total improbability. "
      Most people with Celiac can handle 20ppm.  So is that equivalent to breathing in flour?  Having a half a teaspoon of soy sauce by accident in Asian food?  I can live without bread and cookies, but gluten is IN  so many things. Some on this site with Celiac have separate toasters, don't eat out, and don't walk into bakeries while there are others that eat out and eat fries made in shared oil at BK.  Even I haven't done that.  Isn't it dangerous? Thank you for you help!!

      You sure did nail it! I was too worried it was MS or Lupus or Celiac to be able to really give that option a chance. If anything my guess was low b12. The only obvious things in my diet are Vitamin water and protein bars. If you look at food it's in practically everything in pretty high doses. Going gluten-free uncovered this or made it start. MTHFR gene maybe? Magnesium too low? I haven't taken my multi & am looking up everything I'm eating. Still having the twitches but not near as much in my calves and feet. My arch pain is gone & energy is up a bit. Still twitching though and had some arm and shoulder pain overnight. I read it can be 6 months or longer for nerves to heal.

      Chipotle is changing their preparation methods including how the marinade for the chicken and steak. Does anyone know if it's been certified gluten free?
