This giving up dairy thing is ending up being so much harder emotionally than giving up gluten was. I'm sure if I was just giving up dairy and could still have gluten it wouldn't be this hard. It is really both of them on top of each other. One of my clients was talking about pizza today and it made me so sad. When I was first diagnosed with celiac I reminded myself it could have been worse, I could have had to give up dairy too as a lot of people do. I don't want to sound like a whiner, but this just SUCKS. Dairy has always been part of my favorite foods.  :(

I didn't actually know about the inflammation in the colon from the first time until my new GI was looking at my records. My new GI mentioned that it was in the same place this time as the first time I got scoped. I moved right after my initial dx so this is really the first time I've done much to follow up medically except for being gluten free as the first GI I was referred to after I moved was awful. And since I was in school didn't have the time or money to deal with trying to find another doctor. Long story short, I haven't taken anything for the inflammation. The GI wasn't sure what was causing it. But I see her again in a couple of weeks. 


Thanks everyone for the food advice. I will be putting them to use. I did find the earth's balance and have been using it for butter. It has been going well. I also tried the Daiya cheese, but didn't like it very well on pizza more than just a sprinkling.

"What, flour has wheat in it?"

My digestive tract is much happier now that I am dairy free. But I'm definitely feeling some depression about it. I tried some Silk milk, but didn't like the thickness of it. So I will be trying something else soon. I was happy to find out that my donuts don't have dairy. Does anyone know what I can substitute for butter in baking? Thanks.

Thank you both. My doctor wants me to be really strict at first. Ugh. So much stuff has dairy in it. I feel like I'm back to the figuring out what is gluten free again. I'm just trying to figure out what for now I can have for meals. As all my easy go tos have diary.
