Sudden Lactose Intolerance Development With Celiac?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, is it typical to develop a sudden lactose intolerance with the onset on celiac?

I haven't been diagnose with celiac at this point, but since being terribly sick since March I think I've developed a lactose intolerance as well.

Anyone experience this as well?

LOL I can help with that one - I have had that for decades. It is postural hypotension. It can be a result of low fluid levels or salt content in the body, or from low levels of aldosterone (an adrenal hormone).

To prove you have postural hypotension, you would take your blood pressure while laying down for a while, and then immediately upon standing.

To treat my postural hypotension, I take fludrocortisone, salt my food when ever possible, and drink plenty of fluids.

Best wishes.

Wow, I've had this for many years but never mentioned it to a Doctor or when I listed my symptoms. I've since found this: http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/77632-finally-some-answers-to-my-postural-hypotension/ which has given me further cause for thought.

 

Learning a lot here!

I never mentioned it either because that was normal for me, and had been since childhood. I take the fludrocortisone and it does make a difference. I don't get tunnel vision every time I get up but I do still get light headed on occasion.

I was recently tested for Addison's disease and happily do not appear to have it even though I have the low bp, postural hypotension, and my adrenal function is at the low end of normal. My doctor prescribed hydrocortisone for a while for presumed adrenal fatigue, but I am now off it because it caused me to become prediabetic.... I would rather be a bit tired! LOL

Best wishes.
