I wasn't lactose intolerant until shortly after I was diagnosed.  Lactaid tablets worked fine for me, also...and then they didn't.  I could only tolerate a small amount of hard cheese if I took the tablets.  Overnight (and I'm not exaggerating) I could no longer drink Lactaid milk, and I couldn't handle lactose free products.  I became dairy intolerant that quickly!  It's been a year, and I still can't tolerate anything with dairy.  Just sharing this with you because I didn't believe it could happen quickly, but it can.

Hey gilligan-- Here is 'My" personal theory.  When my Celiac was triggered, it also triggered a lactose intolerance that remained after healing.  When I removed the gluten for some time (months), I could still react to the lactose specifically. I kept it out of my diet for several weeks, yet now, almost ten years later, I can handle some in slim moderation without the tell-tail bloat. I do love cheese. :-/  Others can handle it with no problem when the villi heal.

In Topic: Dish Soap

When I touch things, I get glutened..either my Tide, or my Dawn Passion fruit dish soap is the culprit. And it's kind of a creeper to where I start questioning myself..is it gluten or my imagination. Then I get inside my head trying to convince myself I'm not crazy.
When I touch something with gluten, its a different reaction than when I injest something with gluten..forget about it.
So, I'm trying to determine if I need to try another brand of dish soap and if so, what brand could I purchase that maybe someone has tried that's affected by touching or washing with products containing gluten..please and thank you.
PS..and please, if you are thinking of telling me that its not possible to be glutened by touching things..please..be kind? Thank you

Hey MsBella - Welcome to the forum.  We all have been in your shoes.  Like "holy moly" (not my choice of words, but whatever) Every thing seems to fall apart and your world gets crazy.  My advise to you is to take things a step at a time.  Eat cleanly, with fresh fruits, veggies, un-preseasoned meats or seafood,rice or potatoes.  There is much to choose from.  Go light on dairy for the time being.  To address your post.....it would be unlikely that Dawn, Palmolive or other dishwashing products would contain gluten. And as a newly diagnosed person with Celiac, I am well aware that EVERYTHING FREAKS YOU OUT.  We have all been there, been there  done that, kinda thing.   Touching or cleaning your pots and pans will not make you sick.  But, if you have not been gluten free for a very short time, most foods will make you sensitive.  Until your intestines have time to heal and absorb food normally, most intake will be an issue.  Be careful, and in time you will see improvement.  Hope this helps. :) 

In Topic: Sweet Baby Ray's Bbq Sauce

I can not use it.  Questionable ingredients include Caramel and Modified Food Starch which can vary in their source.....I have felt good for days until tonight.  The only new thing I used was Sweet Baby Rays.  =(

Deanna - I have used Sweet Baby Ray's for years.  I've been gluten free for almost ten years. Caramel color is no longer considerend  an issue and safe to consume. Modified food starch (unless it's emphasized or followed by "wheat", by law)  is generally corn.  All of Sweet Baby Ray's are gluten free. I do think they contain HFCS which does bother me  in other products. Gluten in SBR's is not one of my concerns.
