After A Dairy Exposure, How Long Does It Take To Recover?

I ate some cheese last night and was sick all night. It was kind of a test and boy did I pay. I'm wondering if anyone knows how long it takes to recover after this. Not fun.

We are all different in our reactions and how long they last. It depends a lot on where you are in your healing, your overall health, etc. You will find that each glutening is different for you too. Some lessons we learn the hard way.

Some will have symptoms for a few days, or weeks. I have had some last around 2-3 months because it knocks down the villi and my iron levels drop real fast.

Be sure to drink plenty of water and use probiotics to help break down your foods so you get as many nutrients as possible.

I hope you feel better fast!

I'm severely lactose intolerant and for me it's 22 hours. That's the amount of time from ingestion of dairy to its not so fun exit. Once it's gone my system is quickly back to normal and I hope yours is as well. For me it's not at all like being glutened. That's a long recovery process, which for me was 2-3 weeks.

If your problem from cheese is due to lactose intolerance try Swiss cheese as it is not supposed to have any lactose in it. Check the package it may say lactosefree or no lactose...if it doesn't say that then look at the sugar content and it should be 0 because lactose is a sugar.

I have been lactose intolerant all my life as well as my brother and some of my nephews. Depending on how much lactose was in what we ate determined how soon we would react with cramps and running to the bathroom with diarrhea. And if what we ate only had a small amount of lactose in it then we might not get cramps and diarrhea but just a lot of gas instead. You could do a internet search for lactose levels in foods and get a list. I don't remember them all right now but know Swiss cheese has none and butter has a small amount.

A few years ago the digestive disease doctor insisted on my having a lactose intolerance test because she wanted to be sure. They make you drink a big dose of lactose sugar and then measure your level of lactose intolerance. My level was extremely high and I spent the next 2 days being sick with abdominal cramps and in the bathroom. All they really did after the test was to give me some lactase enzyme pills and tell me to go buy some more of them.

I believe most hard cheeses are lactose free (or so i've heard).

I know hard cheeses and yogurt are sometimes recommended as being lower in lactose but lactose levels are also dependent on the processing and fat content.

So I suggested Swiss cheese either marked lactosefree or with 0 sugar content in case the lactose intolerance is severe...sort of as a baseline place to start for eating cheese if you are lactose intolerant. In actuality the lactose content of Swiss Cheese is considered as an insignificant amount...0.1 or less.

In my humble experience, any question which starts "How long..." does not have an answer. It takes as long as it takes for you, is all I can say.... Every body is unique and every response is unique and while it would be nice to have some guidelines, they reallly do not apply. Sorry about that. :)

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.

      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.

      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
