Gluten Or Lactose?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I ate a lot of blue cheese that said gluten free. Today I have cramps and feel bloated. Normally when I get glutened I don't have cramps so I'm confused. About a month ago I was glutened pretty badly so I'm wondering maybe I might sensitive to too much dairy since I'm still healing or do you think it is gluten with a new symptom. But doesn't lactose intolerance normally show symptoms within a couple of hours not a full day?

Has anyone else had a sensitivity when eating too much blue cheese?

If other cheeses do not bother you, then I would suspect a mold allergy.

Last year I read a book which was all about the dangers of hidden gluten within food, things you would not necessarily associate with gluten. One of them was blue cheese! It said, apparently, the wires that are placed within the cheese to make it blue, can be coated in flour, to stop the wires sticking to the change.

Regarding the lactose intolerance. It was this that first alerted my doctor to the fact I may have coeliac disease. (Which was later confirmed by biopsy). I thought that once my gut settled down I may be able to eat cheeses and yogurt with the lactose taken out, but it turned out to be all dairy that I was intolerant to, not just the lactose. My dietitian had recommended I tried eating some to find out, and within 30 mins of eating a spoonful of yogurt my stomach blew right up, along with the other usual symptoms following on later.

Despite all, remaining positive!

Blue cheese  does not have much milk sugars (lactose) but there is some. If you were very sensitive to lactose, it could be the cause.

If the blue cheese was labelled gluten-free it was probably safe but some blue cheeses can contain gluten.  It might be a good idea to look into it though.  Some products are labelled gluten-free although they may not be safe for celiacs, such as Amy's gluten-free pizza that is made in a facility with wheat or Daura beer which is started from barley but claims to have removed the gluten.

 

 I think gluten in cheese has become less common.  That being said, I still haven't had blue cheese since going gluten-free. I may be missing out but I try to err on the side of caution.

 

I hope you feel better.
