Am I Having A Really Delayed Reaction To Dairy?

8 posts in this topic

I went gluten-free back in January. I also quit dairy at the time, but starting about a month ago, I started eating cheese again because it seems like it's not been affecting me in a noticeable way. However, I have been having a lot more stomach problems since coming to college regardless of my strictly gluten-free lifestyle (I live in an apartment and prepare my own food so no problem there), so it's really hard to say whether the cheese is making it worse.

Last weekend I went home for the first time and ate a LOT of cheese. I mean a lot. I was at friends' houses all weekend and somehow they had every kind of wonderful cheese that I hadn't had in 10 months and I gorged on it. And there seemed to be no effect! I continued to happily eat small bits of cheese this week without much of a second thought. Until tonight I woke up in the middle of the night with a bad upset stomach (or rather, intestines), and now I am left wondering and worrying. (also I wanted to add that I had bad gas for 24 hours prior to this)

Is it possible that my intestines are only now reacting to cheese I ate during the weekend, or the small amounts during the week? I have a fast metabolism, I would be surprised if food from 5-6 days ago was still in my system.

All feedback is greatly appreciated, I have never understood completely how the dairy side of this works, because I know it is sometimes a matter of lactose and sometimes the casein acting like gluten.

Thank you!

It may not be all the cheese you ate itself but the fact that you were eating the cheese at freinds homes who were likely not gluten free.

CC happens and gluten reactions can be delayed by up to a week or so.

But had anyone else put a knife in that cheese that maybe had gluten crumbs on it? Or did you open the fresh package?

I opened the fresh package, and it was precut.

Also, I'm not EXTREMELY sensitive to gluten, as far as I can tell. I think I am potentially sensitive to other stuff though, I have just never been able to figure out what, exactly.

You could eliminate all dairy for a month and see if it makes a difference. Total elimination is a good test.

Or it might be a bug. I thought I had gotten glutened a month or so ago, but it turned out there was a bug going around and all of my non-celiac friends had the exact same symptoms I had.

Could be the dairy. I quit all dairy. I tested as not intolerant to it any more but the Dr. cautioned me that based on my reaction to it, I should not eat it. So I didn't for a long time. But then I reasoned... My daughter was no longer intolerant and it didn't bother her.

I ate some. I was fine. I ate some more. I was fine.

And then the day came. I would get nachos at Target and before I was even done with my shopping, I would have to run to the bathroom. I didn't want to believe that it was the nachos. I was in denial.

I got tested again. Intolerant to dairy. So no more dairy for me.
