Casein Reaction Or Glutening?

Recommended Posts

I feel really poorly :( Sunday afternoon, I had a hypoglycemic attack (I haven't been diagnosed, but I know that's what it was), then all Sunday night I had a headache. I woke up yesterday with a bad stomach, D, brain fog, exhaustion. In the afternoon I felt a bit better. This morning, I woke up really achey, feel exhausted and the brain fog's still there a bit. Feeling quite emotional too.

Thing is though, I didn't have any gluten over the weekend (I made everything we ate) so I could only have got sick from cc or some other intolerance.

I have mostly been dairy free, simply bacause dairy tends to bloat me up and is too fatty for me. On Saturday however, I ate loads of regular (gluten-free) chocolate. the excuse being we had visitors! I've never reacted to dairy like that before, so don't know if it's cc or if it could be a casein problem.

Do others react to casein like that?

i want to be able to figure it out, as I do have a little dairy from time to time, as at the weekend if we've got visitors and buy cream etc. I figure, I'll have a bit of vbloating and then be fine. But if this is how I'm going to react to casein, I don't want to go there ever again!

If I do the enterolab testing, do I need to be eating dairy for a sensitivity to show?

If you have been having small amounts of dairy here and there, and never had a massive reaction like this, I'd guess cc is more likely?

My casein symptoms are pretty much the same as gluten.

The easiest way to test casein is give it up completely for a while, then eat some. Trust me, you'll know!

My casein reactions are the same as gluten. I get that hypoglycemic thing, too. <_< It's a good idea to see what you're dietary response is, or you can do Enterolab's test even if you're off it, at least that's the way it is for gluten.
