Cheese Reintroduction
0

5 posts in this topic

Been dairy free for 3 months and decided to try some cheese.

So... I had 2 small blocks of hard cheddar. It tasted strong!! And nice!

I felt full after eating it (haven't had that feeling for a while!).

Then about half an hour later started a few noises. It actually sound like a puppy growling then whimpering. These noises came and went, nothing particularly drastic but quite unusal (haven't had a noisy gut for a while)... Then over the following 4 hours I had like 'finger poking' pains here and there in my gi. It wasn't agony, on scale for pain about a 2/10. No gas (so far!).

Can I eat cheese? No full blown reaction but obviously my stomach/guts was complaining about something. Would it damage me if I continued to at it?

Should I leave it another month or two?

I don't know whether my symptoms are bad enough to not eat it or whether I should be ok?? I'd happily wait a while but being veggie I'm having trouble sourcing protein. (I can't have nuts or legumes in the house as my son is extremely allergic).

Any advice, as usual, would be greatly appreciated.

Damage? probably not.

I'd stick with just the hard cheeses for now, as they are low in lactose. Do not, however, overdo it. Once or twice a week would be a good way to start just to see how well you handle it.

Thank you, tbh that's what I was thinking... So I'm glad you said that! I'd be too worried about having it more often.

But you see even if I had a little bit once a week it would just help with the protein (yes, it's that bad).

Thanks for you help

Did you eat anything with the cheese? If all you ate was 2 bites of cheese for several hours, you might have made your stomach promises you didn't keep. It was hungry.

Hi kareng!

Yes. I ate some avocado salad and rice cakes with the cheese! I know what you mean but I wasn't hungry :) the noises were louder and more pronounced than hunger rumbles, and there were definite pains later on (just not that bad!)

:)
