Gave Up Casein

Okay, we gave up casein, and now Bernadette has lots of diarrhea. I think it is because she was eating so much lettuce and carrots and things cause she was so constipated/backed up. She was so sick yesterday, but all she ate was carrots and lettuce type things. I think she took an Immodium last night so she can work today.

So now where should we go, should we do that brat diet for awhile and just eat smaller portions of things that shouldn't mess up the system? JenVan, thanks for all your help.

Well, I know she doesn't want D, but praise God for movement at this point! Hmmm, not sure why she would get D unless the dairy was making her constipated and not things are moving along. Hopefully it will normalize. Did she start eating anything different or out of the ordinary recently that may be a culprit? Did you two go out to eat? I would try casein/dairy free for several weeks. It can take the body a while to move things out and begin to recover. It may be several weeks before she really sees how her body feels on a gluten-free/cf diet. I'd probably shoot for a month to start with.

When you say she was 'sick' what exactly do you mean--like did she just have D or was she also nauseated or something else? How are her spirits? Are you able to come up suitable menus each day?

She is not eating well yet. We ate at the steakhouse last night, salad, steak and baked potato with kraft dressing, our own margarine and no seasonings. I think she was eating too much fiber and not enough other stuff for a few days. That is my thought anyway, she is nauseated some also. The carrots and lettuce were causing her lots of gas and painful bloating and then the urgent diarrhea. She was eating these vegetables on an empty stomach causing the pain

I would do the brat diet for a few days till things calm down, with gluten-free toast of course. Lettuce gives many folks problems, I do salads with stuff like organic mushrooms, cut up green squash, green beans, onions, carrots, and cukes. I find I don't even miss the lettuce and I can now have salad all the time. It may not work but it is worth a try. I would also limit dinners out for a while to avoid the risk of cross contamination. I hope she gets some relief soon.
