In Topic: Anyone From North Carolina

I'm from Monroe, where a new Celiac Sprue shop just opened (along with a bakery). Haven't tried them yet, but someday I'll get the time! :D

I'm a redhead!

I heard from a fellow celiac (who is brunette, by the way) that celiac disease seems to be more common along the Irish/Scottish hereditary line. If that's true (I'm skeptical), maybe there is a link!

In Topic: Casein Intolerance

12 March 2012 - 07:46 AM

Saw this thread and thought I'd revive it to see if there are further discussion. I have maintained that I am lactose intolerant along with my gluten intolerance. I have only consumed lactose-free milk with my Chex every once in awhile with no serious complications. It seems my diet has been otherwise dairy free, since I'm "scared" of dairy right now. Last night, I got brave enough to put a slice of Swiss cheese on my turkey burger patty and WHOA! :blink: Within 30 minutes I got a WAY too full feeling, back pain, and bloating. Today, I had to stay home from work--mostly due to my abdominal pain, but also to be close to my own, personal bathroom.

Does this point to casein sensitivity too? I'm having major trouble finding stuff to read about it (everything is focused on the allergy, not the intolerance, and I'm not swelling or getting hives). I thought I was smart picking Swiss since it's really low in lactose.

Exasperating. :huh:

In Topic: Struggling With Energy

04 March 2012 - 01:18 PM

Yep, I'm very new to this, and I was practically singing cheers that I didn't have the horrible pain in my abdomen and that I was able to make it through a day's work without doubling over in agony. Then, I noticed the lack of energy. I'm a teacher, so I must keep my brain on all the time, which can be tough when that brain decides to run out of steam halfway through.

I'm not eating any processed foods and whole foods never quite seem to satisfy. I've heard from many on these forums that I'm withdrawing from gluten, not getting the complex carbs I used to, and that patience and healing were the order for the next few months. So, I will do my best as I wait for better results. This isn't fun, but it stills beats the alternative. :)

All the best!

In Topic: M&Ms

Good post! I will be following this thread for updates, since M&Ms are one of the things I hoped I could hold on to (once I'm less afraid of lactose products). It's been VERY difficult finding a chocolate fix with no lactose. Hoping M&Ms will be labeling for gluten too.
