... the "how fast can I get to a loo when out in public" thingy, because yeah, I thought I, too was done with that malarkey I endured for 40+ years and so...

gee, and I am whining because the same has lasted for about 6 months for me! :(

Adelaide, any chance it may not be milk, or cheese per se, but some additive they sneak into the cheese? That did happen to me, causing severe D and blistery rash.

The cheese is simply listed as having cream, cultures, enzymes and salt. Exactly what it takes to make cheese.

My problem is most assuredly not A1 casein. I drank like a quart of milk and feel pretty much fine. I think I'm just going to attempt to shrug it off at this point and try to fit more pieces if/when I get that sick again. Until then it will remain a mystery and I will try to forget it ever happened so it doesn't eat away at me.

I hear you. Sometimes, even after I wrack my brain trying to figure out what made me feel yucky (when I had been enjoying a

decent stretch of "peace in the land"), I just give it up, too.

This healing road is so up and down and sometimes, I think it's just a wonky day for the old GI tract.

It is frustrating for sure, but not worth making ourselves nuts.

(or any more nutty than we already are....) :D

Strongly suggest you get onto A2 milk only asap, cheese is only concentrated Milk, you can have a mild problem with milk and a much larger problem with Cheese and milk chocolate. Nothing to do with lactose sugar imho, just the A1 milk protein. Yoghurt is the go because the bacteria eat the lactose before you eat it anyway and you really don't want to eat much sugar with a dodgy gut. I originally thought all milk problems were lactose related but after getting more and more unwell on vintage cheese which has no lactose I've seen that theory is just not true.

Thanks for the tip, and maybe I wasn't totally clear on this with all of my comments on testing and trying to expand my diet. I have completely given up trying to expand my diet. I have for over two months now been on raw milk which I didn't know then, but understand now is A2. It has been for that entire time, until "the incident" been the exclusive source of milk for me. I do not eat milk chocolate as that crap is horrid and nasty, milk has no place in chocolate. I am quite a chocolate snob as a matter of fact. I even made my own peppermint bark out of rather pricey chocolate. It is oh so good!

After drinking milk, eating cheese and going through various type of pain for no apparent reason for that cheese "product" thing I tried I have determined that I in no way have any sort of issue at all with milk. Not lactose, not casein. I will continue with my raw milk though because it is not iodine contaminated and I can also buy cheese made from it. I find that the milk you can buy in the store tastes like crap and frankly if I have to pay almost three times as much for my milk, then so be it. At least it won't give me a rash or suck.

That's great you have a source of raw A2 milk, I have a friend with a A2 cow, I should probably be asking her for some milk too. I work at a dairy farm occasionally also who mostly have A1 cows but also some Jersy cows which are mostly A2 so I have a contact there, I could in theory get my own pure A2 cow one day :0 could just have it in the heard and milk it separately into a container.

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
