First, I want to say thanks to the veterans of this site who read through thousands of posts from people like me and take the time to respond you have been there for me in rough times before and I'm bummed that I am back with confusion!

I have been on a gluten free diet for 4 years and I occasionally have these rapid gastric dumping issues where I eat a meal and then within 30 minutes I am running to the bathroom for an urgent diarrhea evacuation (that's basically vomit because its all the food i just ate completely undigested). I have had no stomach surgeries or gastric bypass- none of that. I also off and on have phases where i am nauseous and nothing sounds good. My metabolism has always been high but i get so frustrated trying to find something that 1. is gluten free, 2. sounds appetizing enough to eat and 3. is semi healthy!  I crave stuff like pizza and nachos. Anyways- sometimes just 30-60 minutes after eating i am hungry again! Sick of eating!!!

I saw my doctor yesterday and she wants me to try dairy free for 30 days. I die. I eat dairy all the time- greek full fat yogurt and cheese are a staple in my diet for protein and calcium- I don't drink much milk so I don't see how if I eat dairy every day this causes intermittent dumping? I am depressed just thinking about doing DF and gluten-free (sorry to those who already do it I admire your strength) i am having a hard enough time just being gluten-free. 

SOOO my question is from y'all's experience:

Is this gastric dumping/urgent evacuation caused by cross contamination of gluten? ( I have a 16 month old that eats gluten so this may be increasing my exposure)

Or do you think this could really be lactose intolerance?

Also my immune system has been s$#& this fall and I already had hand foot mouth and now a KILLER cold. 

That is all- thanks for any input!!

When were you last tested for celiac antibodies (if you have celiac disease)?   My bet is that your gluteny toddler could be making you sick.  One of our members who is a PED MD and has celiac disease found that she was getting glutened by her small children.  It could be lasctose intolerance if you have active celiac disease, but that will not resolve if you continue to get exposed to gluten.

I was only tested for antibodies once, negative. My weird diagnosis is based on symptoms and a gene test by my doctor. If I were to ask for that test what do I need to ask for specifically?

I think maybe I am getting CC'd and that might have made me more sensitive to dairy? at least I hope its not forever. 

Thanks!

    Mistakes can set you back.  Remember, celiac disease is an autoimmune response.  Once triggered, it can go off for days, weeks or months.  Like my family member who has MS.  She would have severe flares that would last for six weeks or mor...
    Apart from a couple of mistakes I’ve been gluten free for a month now.  I still have issues with digestion.  Pain in my abdomen (like there is a blockage ) if I eat a big meal.  Small meals are fine, and I still get excessive wind and nause...
