#888450 Do Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity Folks Typically Have Casein Or Lactose Intol...

Posted by on 15 September 2013 - 03:28 AM

From my understanding, it is the ends of the villi that produce the lactase that helps digest the lactose in milk. When the villi are damaged and inflamed, they don't produce the lactase which leads to lactose intolerance. Some individuals however may have a preexisting intolerance unrelated to the small intestinal damage. NCGI does not damage the small intestine.

#879522 Colonoscopy/endoscopy

Posted by on 15 July 2013 - 03:00 AM

The endoscopy and colonoscopy procedure was a breeze. I had it doen on thursday and now have to play the waiting game for the results. Like the previous poster, the preparation the day before was pretty tough (and the gluten challenge!) I don't think they check the liver with this procedure. You may need an ultrasound or get specific blood tests for the liver. Best wishes.

#871217 Gluten Challenge

Posted by on 28 May 2013 - 03:05 PM

Hi Scarletgrrr,


I hope you get some definitive answers and you make it through to the other side to avoiding gluten..  I can relate to that long term feeling that you were not absorbing your food.  My husband and I wondered if I was getting anything from my food, or just from my supplements.  Every time I would run out of a supplement I seemed to go off the deep end.


I hope you get excellent help,  will get to the root cause, and will be delivered from the tummy pains.  I hope some supplements can be found that will help you until your body can absorb the food better.



Thanks Diana

I try to remember to take supplemements everyday. They do make a difference.I have been taking vitamins for years which is probably one of my saving graces. My sister and brother in law are doctors and they used to look down at me taking vitamins saying I will have expensive urine. So glad I didn't listen to them. They now have come around and take them too. Funny how behind the medical world can be sometimes.
